From the Back Cover
A parent's worst nightmare.
A lawyer's biggest challenge.
A young boy's life on the line.
The unimaginable has happened. A thirteen-year-old boy has fired a rifle into a baseball game, killing several of the kids on the field. Parents are devastated. The townspeople are horrified.
When public opinion swells to an enraged cry for justice, an ambitious deputy district attorney sees his opportunity--a sensational trial that will catapult him into the D.A.'s office in the upcoming election. There's just one obstacle: the boy's defense attorney, Lindy Field.
To all appearances, the case is a slam-dunk. Convict the killer, make him pay. But it's not that simple. Lindy's young client is unwilling--or unable--to help Lindy defend him. And as the case progresses, it becomes clear that someone doesn't want the truth revealed.
As Lindy delves into the haunted world of her client's torment, she finds a spiritual darkness that dredges up her own troubled past. And when dangerous forces close in around her, Lindy must fight for answers not only in the justice system, but in the very depths of her soul.

Not all questions are answered. It ends on a sad but realistic note. Good people are murdered in the name of Justice.
Intriguing storyline that is easy to believe. It focuses on the behind the scenes machinations and perversion of law enforcement and, in turn the legal system. Procedures, actions and reactions are not realistic.
The characters are believable with distinct personalities. The dialogue is thought-provoking.
No desire to re-read this story. I may be interested in other works by this author.
In a story which has become all to common, James Scott Bell weaves in a determined young defence lawyer who rides a Harley, and her investigator friend. These two take on the system and uncover a conspiracy. As always, there is a lot of action, and a lit if truth in a novel written by Bell. I am currently reading my way through all his books and enjoying every one.
There is much to ponder in each book besides a rousing tale. I appreciate the thoughtfulness that he puts into each story.
Lindy Field, Darren's ambitious defense attorney doesn't accept a life-without-parole offer. With twists and turns in this story of danger, suspense and corruption we see Lindy fight against public opinion and great odds.
I found myself wondering why Lindy would fight for an insanity plea. I even found myself against her. At the end of the book I didn't wonder any more. Evil comes in many different forms and it is not always as it seems. Lindy had that gut feeling that something wasn't right. She didn't stop until the truth was made known. This was a great book of mystery by James Scott Bell.
