Attorney Amanda Jaffe -- star of Wild Justice, Ties That Bind, Proof Positive, and Fugitive -- is back! This propulsive new thriller from New York Times bestselling author Phillip Margolin will see her entangled in a murder case . . . and the greatest ethical dilemma of her career. Dale Masterson, a wealthy lawyer who has built a career representing coal and oil companies, has enemies -- including his own son, Brandon, a fanatical eco-warrior who despises everything his father stands for. When Dale is found beaten to death in his lavish Oregon home, Brandon is spotted fleeing the scene. He confesses to the murder, proclaiming it an act of revenge against his father's controversial clients. Veteran attorney Amanda Jaffe is hired to represent him, but what seems like an open-and-shut case quickly begins to unravel. Weeks before Dale's death, a colleague at his large law firm was also the victim of a violent killing. A junior employee stands accused of Christine Larson's murder, but in the aftermath, questions emerge about the firm's business practices -- as well as evidence of Dale's involvement in some troubling irregularities. Amanda suspects Brandon may not be telling the truth, but if he didn't kill his father, who did? Smart, fierce, and unafraid of confronting the truth, even if doing so puts her in danger, Amanda begins to dig deeper. Why would an innocent man confess to such a heinous crime? Is there a connection between Dale's murder and the brutal death of Christine? What she finds will force her to make the hardest professional decision of her life.

Amanda Jaffe is my favourite Margolin character and this is an entertaining effort though not the best in the series.
