A Criminal Defense

(The second book in the Harlan Donnally series)
A novel by


"A Criminal Defense is a compelling and strikingly intelligent thriller that
crackles with legal and psychological authenticity. The story is rich,
gritty, and terrifically twisty."
Lou Berney, author of Whiplash River and Gutshot Srtaight.

What do you call
a criminal defense attorney hanging by his neck?

When he's Mark
Hamlin, every cop in San Francisco calls it justice.

Over three decades, Hamlin's
practice devolved into just another racket: intimidating witnesses, suborning
perjury, destroying evidence, laundering money. But is he the victim of
murder--or of a dangerous sexual encounter gone wrong? And when law enforcement
believes justice has already been done, who can be trusted to find out?

Once again in the city where his
career came to a shattering end, former detective Harlan Donnally resolved it
wouldn't be him. He had no desire to immerse himself in the deceit that was
Hamlin's career . . . nor entangle himself in the corrupted loyalties that turned
the dead lawyer's associates into both co-conspirators and suspects . . . nor
make himself the proxy for the hatreds and betrayals Hamlin left behind.

But the presiding judge demanded
otherwise--and that might cost Donnally his life.
