From the Back Cover:

HE WANTED A WAY OUT… AND A WAY UP. BUT WHEN THE BIG OFFER CAME… IT CAME WITH A PRICE

Victor Carl is sick of his loser life. After six thankless years hanging on to his sinking private law practice, his debts are huge, his partner has flown the coop, his photocopier is broken, and his dream of a secure job in one of Philadelphia's exclusive firms if long gone.

Enter William Prescott III. He is a high-powered attorney who has everything that Victor wants. Prescott, though, needs Victor's help representing the aide of a local politician, accused of extortion, arson, and murder. All Victor has to do is follow Prescott's lead and he'll have every success he's ever wanted. It all looks too good to be true. And it is…

‘Suspenseful…Lashner navigates the seamy side of the legal profession with skilful pacing, finding betrayals, both personal and professional at every turn.’
