about

Handed a rotten case, a lawyer will risk his life to uncover the truth

A young woman is abducted by six men, beaten, raped, and left for dead. She can only identify one of her assailants: Al Moroconi, a tough guy whose links to the attack are only circumstantial. And when Moroconi’s first lawyer is brutally murdered, the court appoints Travis Byrne, an ex-cop turned attorney, to defend him. In a lifetime of bad breaks, this will prove the worst piece of luck Byrne has ever had.

 

Someone is trying to frame Moroconi, but why? Byrne is determined to answer this question, but doing so will see him  threatened, beaten, and framed for murder. And as he attempts to clear his name, Byrne uncovers a sickening secret for which the original crime was only a cover-up. Only the truth can save him, but in a case like this, the truth could cost him his life.

Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A fairly light read PLOT OR PREMISE: Travis Byrne is having a hard time. He traded his badge for a law degree and now most cops hate him. His courtroom opponent thinks he's scum since he switched sides. And to prove her point, he's just been appointed lawyer for Al Moroconi -- all-round scumbag with mob ties. . WHAT I LIKED: Then Al breaks out of prison, shooting a guard in the process, and starts gunning for his lawyer who he thinks hasn't done enough to help him. Add in the mob and some crooked FBI agents, and this story gets complicated real fast. . WHAT I DIDN'T LIKE: It has the feel of a fish-out-of-water TV-movie and never quite pays off. . DISCLOSURE: I received no compensation, not even a free copy, in exchange for this review. I am not personal friends with the author, nor do I follow him on social media.
