THE NEXT BOOK YOU'LL SEE EVERYBODY REAIDING - THE WAY WE ALL CARTED AROUND PRESUMED INNOCENT." - USA Today
AT THE TOP OF HIS CLASS AT HARVARD LAW, HE HAD HIS CHOICE OF THE BEST IN AMERICA. HE MADE A DEADLY MISTAKE.
When Mitch McDeer signed on with Bendini, Lambert & Locke of Memphis, he thought he and his beuatiful wife, Abby, were on their way. The firm leased him a BMW, paid off his school loans, arranged a mortgage, and hired him a decorator. Mitch McDeere should have remembered what his brother Ray - doing fifteen years in a Tennessee jail - already knew. You never get nothing for nothing. Now the FBI has the lowdown on Mitch's form and needs his help. Mitch is caught between a rock and a hard place, with no choice - if he wants to live.
