Paul Batista has written an extraordinary novel. it tells the story of an accused terrorist, believed to be the banker for Al Quaida, brought from Gitmo to the US for trial. A famous Wall Street lawyer volunteers to represent him. The US is certain the terrorist knows where millions of dollars in funds are located around the world, and government agents want the money. At the same time, the terrorist"s cohorts want the money. Both sides intersect on the lawyer as the means to find the money. The pressure and violence escalate as both sides pursue what they want. Ahead-of-the headline news, treachery, sex, intrigue, murder and greed, not to mention a startling ending. Read it.

This book was a complicated read. It was not written in the smooth and visual style of writing that I like. The main character, Byron, was not a likeable person, as was any of rest of the characters. I love court room drama, but the scenes in this book's court room were boring and bland and hard to follow. It did have some interesting moments, maybe thats what complelled me to finish reading it. This is my take on this book, maybe another reader will come along.and give it five stars.

Paul Batista has written a compelling story. I truly hope this is fiction and not based on fact. The lawyer, Byron C. Johnson is a well established New York city litigator. He is petioned by a foreign national to represent him in an upcoming trial, where he is being prosecuted as being the financial wizard behind terrrorist attacks against the United States. He complains of being held in isolation for years, being savagely beaten and waterboard treatment. Againest all odds, Attorney Johnson undertakes the case. An interesting story that might lead you to ask, "Fact or fiction?" Strongly recommended. J M Lydon
