Believing he's the target of a frame-up, geeky loner James Drinker hires defense attorney Jason Kolarich to take his case. Two women he knows have recently been murdered, seemingly by the same killer, and Drinker thinks he'll be the police's main suspect. Something about Drinker seems off from the start, but Kolarich doesn't give it too much thought. Until another murder occurs. And then another.
As he begins to probe his client's life and story more closely, it quickly becomes clear that nothing about James Drinker is what it seems…and the target of the frame-up isn't Drinker, but Kolarich.
Faced with a murder charge and unable to prove his own innocence without breaking his sworn attorney-client privilege, Jason Kolarich must hunt for the truth about James Drinker, the series of brutal killings, and why he's been set up to take the fall. The answers will be beyond anything he could have imagined.

An story that follows Jason's involvement in a murder charge. From present events going back over time, Ellis has put together an intriguing murder mystery (although we know who the killer is) and court drama to the waited-for conclusion. I've enjoyed all the books by Ellis. He co-authored "House of Murder" and "Invisible" with James Patterson - both of which are excellent reads

Good courtroom dramas need to be credible in order to work. This is a little bit too contrived with some very obvious holes in believability. First (and last) book that I will read from this author. I question the integrity of the reviewers of this book. Much better courtroom genre books out.
