By appearances Peter Scattergood leads a privileged life: a post as Assistant District Attorney, a loving wife, and a townhouse in Philadelphia's exclusive Society Hill. Assigned to an explosive homicide case - the murder of the mayor's nephew and the young man's beautiful mistress - the power and prestige he's always craved seem within his grasp. But soon the illusion of success shatters. His wife walks out. The double-murder case casts a shadow of doubt on his most trusted peers. And, in a moment of weakness, Peter enters into an affair with a woman whose greatest skill is arousing suspicion. With everything spinning out of control, Peter is driven by rage into the blackest depths of corruption and perversity following a twisted obsession for justice that will force him to break the law he has sworn to uphold: to punish the innocent as well as the guilty.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'Sensational ... heroically balances the philosophical drama of a man's crisis of faith with the puzzle-narrative of a legal whodunit ... Amazing' New York Times 'Utterly entertaining ... One is tempted to say the words "Move over Scott Turow" and stop there ... Succeeds on a level that touches us more deeply than the ordinary thriller' Washington Post Book World 'An incisive portrait of corruption at high levels, of powerful men who will go to sickening lengths to keep their power ... Harrison's sense of timing and character is deft, and he creates suspense by bringing together men whose ambitions and fears inevitably must clash. What he does best, however, is show us, very eloquently, the pain and occasional small triumphs of being human' San Francisco Chronicle 'Suspenseful and unpredictable to the very last page' Chicago Tribune
