George W. Barclay, Jr. is not a well known author sadly. It boggles my mind because he wrote this incredible legal thriller that takes place in and around Southeast Texas where I use to call home.
Houston defense attorney Sandra Lerner is called by an old colleague Scott MacDonald to defend a man who allegedly murdered his wife. When Mrs. Lerner arrives, she is surprised that the case is way more twisted than either her and her partner or even the prosecutor thought.
This is a fantastic novel that should be on every legal thriller fan’s bookshelf. It has corruption, crimes of passion, infidelity, and legal sharks swimming in the courtroom.
