When a brutal rapist is murdered, a loving father stands accused of the crime and defense attorney Dismas Hardy must defend his brother-in-law and old friend Moses McGuire in a thrilling case that hits far too close to home.

New York Times bestselling author John Lescroart's most beloved protagonist returns in a masterful novel that showcases his extraordinary storytelling gifts: a cast of flesh-and-blood characters, morally complex situations, and relentless, nail-biting suspense.

When his brother-in-law and old friend Moses McGuire is the prime suspect in the murder of his own daughter's rapist, attorney Dismas Hardy agrees to defend him. But McGuire has fallen off the wagon, and his stay in prison could bring to light old secrets that would destroy Hardy and his closest colleagues' careers. As the overwhelming evidence against McGuire piles up, Hardy focuses on planting doubt in the minds of the jurors--until, in a feat of legal ingenuity that is staggering in both its implications and its simplicity, he sees a new way forward that might just save them all. But at what price?

The book is well written and the author brings out a solid cast of characters with strong dialogue. Unfortunately, the plot seems to go around in circles and at times it feels like the author was not sure where he wanted the book to go
