Criminal defense lawyers must make their peace with one harsh fact of life: most of their clients are guilty.

But when William Tucker, a celebrated and self-centered star college football player, is suddenly arrested and charged with the brutal rape and murder of a college coed two years before, his estranged father, Frank Tucker, a drunken, broken-down, beach-bum ex-criminal defense lawyer, cannot believe his son is guilty. No father can. So he must find a way to sober up and save his son from the death penalty sought by an ambitious district attorney. And father and son learn that only three things in life are certain: death, taxes, and a father's love for his son.


Daily Mail (UK): "There cannot be any dispute. Gimenez has taken over John Grisham's mantle. . . . His work is now faster and fresher than Grisham, his characters are stronger, and his plot lines reek of tomorrow's headlines."

Weekend Sport (UK): Same brilliant storyteller, brand new character to follow. Gimenez is a great and growing writer who hasn't let his readers down yet, and doesn't look likely to."

The Australian: "Mark Gimenez writes colloquially smart dialogue but plots like an old master."

Houston Press: "Gimenez's writing is explosive, fast-paced, and filled with unexpected plot twists that keep readers guessing right up to the last page."

Civilian-Reader (UK): "Gimenez's novels are gripping, intense thrillers."

Oamuru Mail (New Zealand): "Gimenez is a thriller writer of quality." (UK): "As ever, Gimenez is highly recommended, impossible to put down and definitely not to be missed. . . . Gimenez' stature continues to grow."

The Courier-Mail (Australia): "Mark Gimenez already has a reputation as a fine thriller writer."

Book-of-the-Month club: "Boy can this guy tell a story!"

Rated 4 out of 5 by from very good A great story. Frank was a great character and loving father as were his beach buddies. A little less sex and language would have suited me better. Probably will not fellow the author again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hope reigns supreme I am not a football fan (yes, we do exist) and found the beginning of the book a little tedious. .. but I held on to my belief that the story would pick up. I was not disappointed. Once again we are treated to a masterful story, one in which hope and belief are a big part of the story. And, once again, we are treated to what becomes a real page turner....even a nail biter.
