I HAVE REVIEWED THIS BOOK AND THE CORRECT FILE IS ON IT. IF YOU ARE HAVING PROBLEMS DOWNLOADING IT PLEASE CONTACT AMAZON AND PLEASE STOP GIVING THE BOOK ITSELF A 1 STAR REVIEW BECAUSE YOU ARE HAVING PROBLEMS. DON'T GIVE A BOOK A BAD REVIEW YOU HAVE NOT HAD OPPORTUNITY TO READ. THANK YOU.

I try to create a story that is entertaining, interesting and most importantly, thought provoking. I want to create something that gives the reader a legal, moral or ethical dilemma to think about. In doing so, as in real life, I may not have every little detail wrapped in a nice, neat bow at the end. However, I do believe the reading experience is well worth the ride.
Marc Kadella is back and he has a new client. His antagonist on the Hennepin County bench, Judge Gordon Prentiss has been accused of a murder. Despite his antipathy for Marc, Prentiss wants him to represent him because he is innocent and knows Marc will fight hard for him.
Marc's initial reaction is to let Prentiss have whatever he gets but, he becomes convinced that the judge is in fact innocent so he agrees to take the case. A criminal defense lawyer does not have to like his client. In fact, they rarely do.
Fighting for the judge's life, Marc and his investigators, the beautiful and deadly Maddy Rivers and the street wise ex-cop, Tony Carvelli, uncover a criminal organization that is corrupting the entire community, including Gordon Prentiss. When it looks like Prentiss will get out from under it, he is framed for the murder. Except the gangster that Marc believes is responsible is an asset of the federal government and is totally protected no matter what he does including drug dealing, gambling, prostitution and even murder. The gangster makes a huge mistake when he crosses paths with the matriarch of a very wealthy and connected family. A mistake he will come to regret because even the feds cannot protect him from her.
