Overview

The best-selling author in America today presents a new legal thriller in the tradition of his previous blockbusters, which include The Partner, The Client, The Pelican Brief, The Firm, and A Time to Kill. Large first printing. Major ad/promo.

Michael was in a hurry. He was scrambling up the ladder at Drake & Sweeney, a giant D.C. law firm with eight hundred lawyers. The money was good and getting better; a partnership was three years away. He was a rising star with no time to waste, no time to stop, no time to toss a few coins into the cups of panhandlers. No time for a conscience.



But a violent encounter with a homeless man stopped him cold. Michael survived; his assailant did not. Who was this man? Michael did some digging, and learned that he was a mentally ill veteran who'd been in and out of shelters for many years. Then Michael dug a little deeper, and found a dirty secret, and the secret involved Drake & Sweeney.



The fast track derailed; the ladder collapsed. Michael bolted the firm and took a top-secret file with him. He landed in the streets, an advocate for the homeless, a street lawyer.



And a thief.

After a violent encouanter with a homeless man, talented corporate lawyer Michael finds himself out on the streets, lucky to be alive, and holding a top-secret file belonging to his former employer
