But for homicide lieutenant Abe Glitsky, the crime cuts horribly close to home—unknown to anyone, the victim was his daughter. Seething, Glitsky leans hard on his only suspect—a homeless heroin addict found lingering over his daughter's body, with her jewelry in his pocket and a smoking gun in his hand.The city's embattled, ambitious D.A. Sharron Pratt sees an opportunity to revive her troubled administration by publicly declaring war on the killer and vowing to deliver a death penalty, putting the case on the fast track to certain conviction. Unable to watch a man die for Pratt's political gain, Dismas Hardy warily takes on the defense. But as Hardy's crusade to secure his client a fair hearing ensues, a lethal web of political corruption, legal conspiracy, and cold-blooded murder begins to unravel.

Excellently written..... Nail biter with many twists till the end. Narration was a bit different than his other books I've listened to.... Still good but different.
