Paul Madriani has ample reason to suspect he's representing a guilty man. Dr. David Crone, a respected medical researcher and principal in mapping the human genome, is charged with the murder of a young colleague: twenty-six-year-old Kalista Jordan, an African-American research physician whose body washed up on a beach in San Diego Bay. Forensic evidence links her murder with material in Crone's garage. Crone had both opportunity and motive: Kalista had recently ended their affair, and may have been deserting him professionally as well, moving on to a rival genetic research facility. However, when a key witness for the prosecution dies unexpectedly, leaving an incriminating note behind, Crone's innocence seems confirmed-until Madriani hits upon a potentially damning loose end.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Lean, speedy, and packing a wallop of a plot twist at the end, the latest Paul Madriani legal thriller shows why Martini remains one of the form’s most popular practitioners…In his sixth Madriani novel, Martini takes the moving parts of a standard plot and spins them for maximum effect. His secondary characters, while filling stock roles, are memorable in quirky ways, and a subplot about genetic illness in the family of one of Madriani’s friends is executed with skill.” Publishers Weekly
“Demonstrates the deft blend of courtroom finagling and outside discovery work that makes Martini’s books so popular…[A] fast-moving thriller.” Booklist
