Someone close to Nick Davis is murdered. Investigators see it as either a case of mistaken identity or the work of a jealous fiancé. As a federal prosecutor, Nick tries shepherding the case to a swift conclusion, but it keeps slipping away. Meanwhile, Nick's relationship with his wife, Tina, hangs by the thinnest of threads. She is also a lawyer, working to vindicate a young man convicted of killing a child eight years previously. When old DNA evidence is uncovered in the murder case, its analysis hurls Nick's universe into upheaval--his most basic assumptions about his life, the law, and the people he loves most are thrown into question.

Goodman's second legal thriller with lawyer Nick Davis. I have not yet read his first novel with this character (Indefensible), but I will definitely be reading it in the near future. This was an excellent read. Brilliant writing, rich characters, unpredictable plot, hard to put down, great yet unexpected ending, thoroughly satisfying. I think Goodman is comparable to the some of the most celebrated authors of legal fiction. I certainly look forward to more books with the Nick Davis character.
