Overview

"As husband and wife, Mike Daley and Rosie Fernandez couldn't make it work. But as partners in San Francisco's most tenacious law firm, Fernandez and Daley make one hell of a team." "Judgment Day finds the ex-spouses tackling their thorniest case yet. Called in at the last minute to try to stop the execution of Nathan Fineman, a former mob lawyer convicted of murdering three people in the back room of Chinatown's notorious Golden Dragon Restaurant, Mike and Rosie must race the clock in a desperate attempt to prove their client's innocence. With only ten days to go and a wealth of forensic evidence pointing to Fineman's guilt, they're facing odds longer than the Pacific Coast Highway. And that's before they learn that Mike's father - a San Francisco cop who was one of the first officers at the scene on the night of the murders - may have been involved in a police cover-up." As the plot hurtles toward its denouement, only one thing is clear - Judgment Day is fast approaching not just for Nate Fineman, but for Mike's father and the law firm of Fernandez and Daley as well.

Publishers Weekly

In Siegel's straightforward sixth novel to feature San Francisco defense attorney Mike Daley (after 2004's The Confession), Nate Fineman, an attorney on San Quentin's death row, enlists Daley and his law partner, Rosie Fernandez, who happens to be Daley's ex-wife, in a desperate effort to gain a stay of execution. Fineman, who's scheduled for lethal injection in less than nine days, was convicted 10 years earlier after being found in a Chinatown alley clutching the gun used to murder two drug dealers and a lawyer who'd been meeting in a nearby restaurant. The defendant had been on the SFPD's persona non grata list since he'd managed to get charges dismissed against yet another local narcotics trafficker. Daley pursues the theory that his new client was framed by the boys in blue, despite the complicating factor that Daley's own father was one of the policemen responding to the triple homicide. The courtroom action builds to a predictable resolution sure to please Perry Mason fans. (May)
