Sara Tate is a prosecuting attorney with the Manhattan DA's office; her husband, Jared Lynch, a rising star in a Wall Street Law firm. They have a wonderful, happy, high-spirited, non-competitive marriage - until they accidentally find themselves on opposite sides of the courtroom, and their relationship starts to fall apart.

Worse, they are threatened by interested parties on each side of the case. The result is obvious: one of them will lose. The other one will die.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Watch out John Grisham - there's a young pretender out there. The excellent thriller DEAD EVEN . . . has more double crosses and ruthless villains than an episode of Dallas. Great * Prima *

'Just when you thought there were no more changes to be rung on the legal thriller, Meltzer follows up his bestselling inside look at the Supreme Court (The Tenth Justice) with this sleek, suspenseful, only slightly unbelievable story about two young New York lawyers in love and danger. . . . Definitely compelling tale of legal and extralegal adventure'
Publishers Weekly


'A very aptly titled gripper that will have Grisham slapping his wife's wrist in pique over the breakfast toast when he discovers Melzter's plot for his second novel . . . Author Meltzer is an attorney himself, which lends the novel's dialogue a sparkling undercurrent of real-life chitchat, not to mention the mutual sabre-sharpening that readers will quickly pick up on and enjoy as a bonus'
Kirkus Reviews


Breakneck . . . an action-packed read * Frances Fyfield in Mail on Sunday *

"Races along...deftly written...haunting...Meltzer is so good."
- Entertainment Weekly


A gem of a plot...so strong...breezes along in 'high gear'. Highly
recommended."

Peckinpah...complete with cliffhangers at the end of every chapter."

"Rachets up the tension."
- San Francisco Chronicle

"As he demonstrated in his first novel, The Tenth Justice...Meltzer has a
gift for revealing the heart-stopping intensity of legal systems under
extreme pressure."
- San Francisco Chronicle


"Meltzer does it again with...a different twist...The book is well-crafted
and will hold your interest -- just like John Grisham's books, but with a
Yankee twang."
- Chattanooga Free Press


"Meltzer comes back with an even stronger effort that should catch the eye
of every John Grisham devotee."
- Chicago Tribune


"Sleek, suspenseful...definitely compelling."
-Publishers Weekly

'Sparky, sexy, and above all, a new template for a document entitled "pageturner" ' - The List
'Watch out John Grisham - there's a young pretender out there. The excellent thriller DEAD EVEN . . . has more double crosses and ruthless villains than an episode of Dallas. Great' - Prima
