From Publishers Weekly
St. Louis ADA Jack Hilliard has it pretty easy in attorney Compton's less than assured debut. Jack is married to a beautiful and intelligent law professor; he's also the protégé and assumed successor to his influential boss and mentor, DA Earl Scanlon, and is considered by his peers to be an all-around charismatic and upstanding man, both in and out of the courtroom. But all that is hearsay: Jack, for the life of him, keeps making the same mistakes and placing himself again and again in compromising situations—on purpose. In a bid to become district attorney, Jack sidesteps admitting his anti–death penalty stance in order to get elected, then he falls for his campaign treasurer, Jenny Dodson. When Jenny is accused of murder, will Jack provide the alibi that could save her life but wreck his career? Despite Compton's efforts to make Jack sympathetic, many readers will have a hard time caring about a lying, cheating jerk. (May)

Sure, Jack Hilliard had wondered what it would be like to have his boss’ job, the D.A. in St. Louis. But he wasn’t prepared to have the opportunity thrust upon him, which is what happens when his boss and mentor announces he is leaving public service to enter private practice. Happily married and only 35, Jack is the heir apparent, or at least so think his friends, especially his best friend, Jenny, Jack’s biggest fan. Jack doesn’t think he has a chance given his opposition to the death penalty and frets about having to skirt the issue during the campaign. While his candidacy should be the only thing on his mind, he becomes obsessed with Jenny, whose constant flirtation turns a dangerous corner, and when she finds herself accused of murder, their night of passion is her only alibi. While light on thrills (the lion’s share of the tension here involves Jack’s relationship with Jenny), the politics of lawyering make for a thick enough plot. A promising debut. --Mary Frances Wilkens
