Baker & Taylor
Enjoying success as a wrongful death attorney in spite of his nightmarish childhood, San Francisco lawyer David Sloane receives a package from a White House suicide victim and is forced to rely on strangers in order to expose an insidious government conspiracy. By the author of The Cyanide Canary. A first novel. 35,000 first printing.

Blackwell North Amer
In a courtroom, David Sloane can grab a jury and make it dance. He can read jurors' expressions, feel their emotions, know their thoughts. With this remarkable ability, Sloane gets juries to believe the unbelievable, excuse the inexcusable, and return the most astonishing verdicts. The only barrier to Sloane's professional success is his conscience - until he gets a call from a man later found dead, and his life rockets out of control.
The call is from Joe Branick, special assistant and personal friend of the president of the United States, made just hours before Branick eats his gun. In a single moment, the death of a man Sloane has never met propels the jury master out of his successful career and into a whirlwind that is shattering lives from San Francisco to Washington, D.C.
To get back his life, Sloane needs to know more. About Branick. About others who are in as much danger as he is. And about the president and his gun. But in the face of a secret that spans decades and governments, and puts billions of dollars at risk, there's one thing David Sloane can't possibly envision - that this runaway conspiracy is all about him - and only he can stop it.

Just OK. The narrator is usually excellent, not so much here. My first book (Sam Hell) of RD was so to my liking it will be hard to match. I was not overly enthused, but will try more in print.

Although the beginning was confusing, with all of the characters to try and keep straight, I ended up loving this book! Can't wait to read the next one!!

This is one of those "meh" books that are okay but you probably won't remember the next day. Great for a weekend off or for a plane ride but not good enough to be memorable

I am midway through this book and it is a s smart as a whip and full of drama, credible characters and tension. The best new fiction writer of the legal thriller subniche to come along in years.
