“You learn early that you don’t get to prove your case with Boy Scouts and nuns. Yes, convicted felons will say anything to get out of jail, but they also know a lot.”
Plea bargains may grease the rails of justice, but for Jamie Brock, prosecuting criminals is not about cutting deals. In her three years as assistant DA, she’s never plea-bargained a case and vows she never will. But when an infamous defense attorney is indicted for murder and devises a way to bring the entire justice system to a screeching halt, Jamie finds herself at a crossroads.
One by one, prisoners begin rejecting deals. Prosecutors are overwhelmed, and felons start walking free on technicalities. To break the logjam and convict her nemesis, Jamie must reevaluate every principle that has guided her young career. But she has little choice. To convict the devil, sometimes you have to cut a deal with one of his demons.
- Great offering
Singer has his plot move quickly where others pad their page count. His characters are believable and flawed which aids their realism. I spent the whole book second guessing characters and who done it and why. Singer did a masterful job of keeping me off balance. And when I was certain that I had it figured out he pulled the rug out from under my theory. The art of the twist is difficult to perfect. Singer is well on his way to being a great writer. I love courtroom genres. Singer shows that he has been in the heat of battle in the courtroom. I have all his audiobooks and anxiously await more of his books being converted to the audiobook format. I drive a lot so I have more time to listen to a story than to read a story at this stage in my life. This was well worth the money.
