Inhaltsangabe: Charley Sloan isn't your typical lawyer. But then again, this isn't your typical case. When famous author and hometown hero Miles Dane is arrested for murdering his wife, it seems like an open-and-shut case. With no credible alibi, a mountain of physical evidence, and a motive of millions, it seems the prosecution's case is airtight.
The police suspect that Dane had planned this crime many years ago--and made the mistake of writing it all down...in exact detail. Even Charley begins to question Dane's innocence. But Charley's own investigation gives him reason to believe that his client is being framed and that the real killer is using Dane's own bizarre imagination against him. But why isn't Dane speaking up? What secrets is he hiding?
As the trial begins, it's still unclear where Miles Dane's wild imaginings stop and reality begins. Or whether he is committing the ultimate sacrifice in order to atone for something he did long ago. Only in the crucible of the final, fevered moments of trial will Charley finally put the pieces together and reveal the stunning truth...
Rezension: William Coughlin's series character Charley Sloan gets a second lease on life in this new thriller that carries the small-town Michigan lawyer into murder and mayhem; vintage heroes never die, even if their creators do, and Walter Sorrells, a talented writer whose mysteries plow much of the same ground, carries on Coughlin's series with a nifty setup--a bestselling crime writer fallen on hard times who's accused of murdering his wife in a plot taken from one of his own books. Miles Dane may get away with murder unless Charley can prove he's been set up by the man who may--or may not--be his long-lost son. This is a solid legal thriller that will delight the late Coughlin's fans who've wondered what happened to Charley and what's still happening in picturesque Pickeral Point. Long may the franchise wave! --Jane Adams
