Summary: Two years ago, Darren Street made a name for himself as the man who rooted out corruption in the district attorney’s office. Now the hotheaded young lawyer is in the public eye yet again—this time, accused of murder.
Jalen Jordan retained Street for what seemed to be a minor traffic violation, but when evidence turned up linking Jordan to the death of two boys, Street wanted out of the case. To ensure his lawyer’s cooperation and silence, Jordan threatened to make Street’s son the next victim. Shortly after, Jordan’s own body turned up with a bullet hole in his chest.
Now Street is on trial for his life, and the enemy he made in the DA’s office is clearly out for blood. It’s one lawyer out to frame another. Can a desperate father escape punishment for a crime he didn’t commit?
My Review: I am making a mad dash to finish my “read a book set in every state” bucket list goal, especially since I realized I only needed to read a book set in 4 states. This week I realized that I was going to do a lot of busy work, so the opportunity to listen to books made it easy to really try and finish this goal this week.
I work with attorneys across 17 states so I am always a fan of legal drama books. So when I found this one Kindle Unlimited I was stoked. I love legal drama, even though I am not a lawyer I know more than the average non-lawyer and reading the drama is easy.
This book was good, very good in fact. Within moments of listening, I was immediately drawn into the story. I loved how fast paced the story was, I really could not put this book down. I was drawn into this story. Jalen was creepy as hell & I absolutely loved Street.
This book was interesting because you knew who framed him & you found yourself really pulling for Street putting the clues together. Fantastic read!
