Lou Mason is a lawyer at a big firm. When one of his partner’s is murdered it is revealed that both he and his biggest client are being investigated by the FBI. Lou is nominated to find out what is going on. When the bodies begin to pile up, Lou’s quest to figure things out begins to compete with his desire to stay alive. Can he do both?

This was a thrilling legal drama. There are twists and surprises at every turn. I was continually hook into all the new secrets and details being revealed.

Lou made for a decent investigator. He was through, and realistic. He didn’t get access to anything unbelievable, and his actions stayed within character. His growing violence was a little concerning, but still made sense. It made me want to know if he would be able to pull himself back and regain his balance.

The one thing I didn’t really buy into was the multiple romance angles. None seemed believable, or even like much of anything. I could believe a bit of flirting, but everything beyond that felt flat. There were even a few times when the scene ended and I had to re-read to figure out that it was supposed to be a suggestive scene.

Overall, this was an exciting read. I look forward to reading the next book in the series. A word of warning, there is some violence, but nothing too gory.
