From the author of the “stellar” (Publishers Weekly) Indefensible comes a “complex and intelligent” (John Lescroart, New York Times bestselling author) legal mystery and courtroom drama that inhabits the blurry boundary between guilt and innocence when a murder sends one family’s life into a tailspin.

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.

“Compelling” with “language that sings,” Lee Goodman’s latest novel is a truly “outstanding” page-turner (William Kent Krueger, New York Times bestselling author).

From Publishers Weekly

Jun 01, 2015 – At the start of Goodman's twisty second legal thriller featuring federal prosecutor Nick Davis (after 2014's Indefensible), Davis looks back on a more tranquil time, before "the very incarnation of evil and misery had burrowed its way into the heart of my job and family. Months earlier, a Fourth of July picnic with his extended family didn't go as planned. A loved one was gunned down near the city park where the gathering was to take place, propelling Davis into a murder investigation. Initial indications that the killing was a random act of violence are soon supplanted by suspicions that the truth lies closer to home. Meanwhile, Davis is grappling with a major public corruption case involving a mining-services contractor accused of bribing politicians to defeat tax legislation that would threaten its business. Goodman does a fine job of setting up readers' expectations only to confound them, and he populates the story line with fully developed personalities.
