From the Publisher
Debut author Sheldon Siegel bursts into the legal thriller arena
with a riveting courtroom drama, exposing the world of big-time law
firms and lawyers in a fresh, sharp-witted, wonderfully sardonic
Meet Mike Daley. Ex-priest. Ex-public defender. And as of
yesterday, ex-partner in one of San Francisco''s most prominent law
firms. Today he''s out on his own, setting up practice on the wrong
side of town. Then his best friend and former colleague is charged
with a brutal double murder, and Daley is instantly catapulted into
a high-profile investigation involving the prestigious law firm
that just booted him.
As he prepares his case, Daley uncovers the firm''s dirtiest
secrets. It doesn''t take long for him to discover that in this
trial, ambition, friendship, greed, and long-standing grudges will
play just as important a role as truth and justice.
Brilliantly paced, crackling with energy and suspense, Special
Circumstances reminds us why we love to hate lawyers - but can''t
get enough of courtroom drama when it''s done this well.
