Lawyer Sara Tate is in danger of losing her new job with the Manhattan District Attorney's Office if she doesn't get noticed fast. Smart and tough—a fighter who makes things happen—she grabs a high-profile burglary case that could make her career. There are two problems: Sara's husband, Jared, is the attorney for the defense . . . and she's been warned that if she does not get a conviction, Jared will be killed. What she doesn't know is that her husband has received a similar threat. Unless his client walks, Sara's life is over.
Unaware of the stakes on the other side and forced to keep their secrets from each other, husband and wife become bitter adversaries, locked in a vicious head-to-head battle in the courtroom and at home. And there can be no victor in this struggle.
No matter who wins . . . someone dies.

Great legal thriller of husband wife lawyers. A bit contrived, but many good characters. Female lawyer is much too hysterical for any ADA that I know. Husband is much too simple to be working in a NYC firm. Other than that, a decent story.
Pathetic Story Line
This plot was so unbelievable that it was almost painful to finish reading. One or two of the characters were interesting but the pathetic plot was too far out to be believable. Husband and wife are both set up and each is told the other will die if the setup is disclosed to the other. Then they both go along with it like threatened two-year olds. They go from cunning to icky sweet and back each chapter. This was a real waste of time and money.
Don't listen to that GClaw fool. Great book, great author, all around great!!
