JD Banks, a highly respected defense attorney in the small town of Manchester, PA, agrees to defend the case of a man accused of murdering his wife. Believing in the innocence of his client despite the mounting evidence against him, Banks knows intuitively that the facts don't add up and nothing is as it seems. Could the killer be the person who was having an affair with the victim while her husband was in prison? Did she know too much about her employer's involvement in an illegal scheme worth millions?
When Banks gets too close to the truth, roadblocks set up by a police department rife with corruption, mob warnings against continuing the investigation, a suicide, and two more murders all frustrate the search for the truth. The most baffling case of Banks' career takes a serpentine course through plots and sub-plots, riddles, and an explosive trial to a shocking conclusion.

This murder mystery, courtroom drama is one of the best books in this genre that I have read. Lorraine is found strangled after her husband, Farm Conklin, returns from prison. Everything points to Farm Conklin as the perpetrator. Who else could have killed lovable Lorraine? J.D. Banks, defense attorney, and Max, JD's investigator take on the job of defending Farm. The plot offers so many angles and possibilities and yet the evidence against Farm is overwhelming. But there are tiny cracks in the evidence and more and more questions surface. The plot is masterfully done. The courtroom scenes are excellent. This book held my attention to the end. Great Read!!

After reading my first Don Lewis book, I was impressed at the innovative plot and the story line progression. It was as good or better than the current mainstream mystery writers. As I enjoy a good mystery, I am lookiong forward to future Don Lewis books.

Good job! I couldn't put your book down. I became involved with your characters. It was informative and fast paced. You got me at the end with the surprise perp. Can't wait for your next book. Joe Granata, Fredonia, NY

I just finished reading Satan's Boots, and I can't tell you how impressed I was! The plot, the action, character development, diaglogue-- it was all first rate. I really enjoyed reading it, and I think it's as good a legal mystery as anything else out there; as good as anything by Grisham or Steve Martini. All those years of legal work must have taught you to organize you mind. And it probably didn't hurt your imagination any either!! Art Tripp, Mississippi
