Very good book. I kept reading it while walking to work. A few other friends of mine have read the book and couldn't have guessed the murderer until the end. I do agree that Margolin has written better. But I believe that this is one book that every Margolin fan should read.

I really enjoyed this book. It was about a young attorny name Peter Hale. Who work for his father law firm. Peter father Mr.Hale had a mulitimillion dollar case. Peter father was the lead counsel. He had an heart attack. During his attack he told his son to tell the judge to have a mistrial.Peter took it the case in his own hands. He lost the case.When his father returned home he was very upset that he lost the case. His father told him to leave and make it on his on. He the moves to a quiet Oregon town. He was working with a attorny. He then had a case dealing with a psychotic man accused of murder. Peter realized that he will end up killing his client due to greed.He the begins to realize what it takes to be a lawyer.

The plot was good, but I thought the characters were very poorly developed. The main character too immature to be believable and the dialogue was not realistic. The plot itself had a pretty good ending but the 'character ending' was something from a BAD soap opera. Not Margolin's best work by a long shot.
