From the Back Cover
Attorney Amanda Jaffe—star of Wild Justice, Ties That Bind, Proof Positive, and Fugitive—is back!
Dale Masterson, a wealthy lawyer who has become successful representing the interests of oil and coal companies, has enemies—including his own son, Brandon, an eco-warrior who hates everything his father stands for. When Dale is brutally murdered in his lavish home, Brandon confesses to the crime, and veteran
attorney Amanda Jaffe is hired to represent him. However, what seems like an open-and-shut case quickly begins to unravel. Amanda suspects Brandon may not be telling the truth . . . but if he didn’t kill his father, who did?
This propulsive new thriller from New York Times bestselling author Phillip Margolin will see her entangled in the most challenging case of her career.

I did not receive any type of compensation for reading & reviewing this book. While I receive free books from publishers & authors, I am under no obligation to write a positive review. Only an honest one.
A very awesome book cover, great font & writing style. A very well written international thriller book. It was very easy for me to read/follow from start/finish & never a dull moment. There were no grammar/typo errors, nor any repetitive or out of line sequence sentences. Lots of exciting scenarios, with several twists/turns & a huge set of unique characters to keep track of. This could also make another great international thriller movie, or better yet a mini TV series. There is no doubt in my mind this is a very easy rating of 5 stars.
