"You will burn through this novel...non-stop and totally rapt. It's an airtight cinch."

Judge Daniel Brennan is only days away from achieving a seat on the Second Circuit Court of Appeals bench when he's brutally stabbed to death in his garage. An army of media and law enforcement descend on the case, and thousands of tips pour in from the public. When one tip leads New Jersey policeman Luke Somers to Steven Gallagher, things quickly go wrong--even though Luke is instantly glorified for solving the case.

"Rosenfelt has earned his crime-novelist pedigree."-- Entertainment Weekly

But to one man, Luke is no hero. Chris Gallagher raised his brother, Steven, almost single-handedly and, certain that Steven is innocent, he won't rest until he sets the record straight. Thanks to Luke's newfound fame, he's an easy man to find, and Chris quickly makes it clear that Luke's own brother will die if Luke refuses to help clear Steven's name. So begins Luke's desperate attempt to find another suspect-- any other suspect--in Judge Brennan's death. But Luke's investigation might open the door to powerful forces even more dangerous than Chris Gallagher...

"Perfectly controlled suspense."-- Kirkus Reviews

I judge this story to be complex, with plenty of twists and a nice conclusion that I definitely didn't see coming. All in all, everything I look for in light crime/mystery reading - great to be entertained and challenged with a whodunit while allowing my mind to fill in the details; no overload of blood and gore. I truly do recommend this author - I have been reading through his works from his first to the present, and none have been a disappointment.

The plot was simplistic and the characters were poorly developed. The book was not difficult to read because the subject matter lent itself to some interesting turns but overall, not very well executed

A real page turner as one crisis after another with twists and turns not expected

Different leading character but just as good as his other books. Highly recommended if you like a good mystery that moves right along.
