James Drinker is a bit of an oddball. A funny looking geeky loner he walks into Jason Kolarichs office one day with a preemptive concern -- two women have recently been murdered seemingly by the same killer and Drinker thinks he will be the police's main suspect. One woman was his ex-girlfriend, he says, and the other was a friend. He's the only link between the victims and he has no alibi for the night of either murder surely-- the police will realize it soon. Believing he's the target of a frame up, Drinker hires Kolarich for his defense. Something about James Drinker seems off from the start, but Kolarich doesn't give it too much thought. Until another murder occurs. And then another. And as he begins to probe his client's life and story more closely, it quickly becomes clear that nothing about James Drinker is what it seems...and that the target of the frame up isn't Drinker, but Kolarich. Unable to stop a serial killer--and prove his own innocence--without breaking his sworn attorney client privilege, Jason Kolarich must hunt for the truth about James Drinker, the series of brutal murders, and why he's been set up to take the fall. The answers will be beyond anything he could have imagined.

An story that follows Jason's involvement in a murder charge. From present events going back over time, Ellis has put together an intriguing murder mystery (although we know who the killer is) and court drama to the waited-for conclusion. I've enjoyed all the books by Ellis. He co-authored "House of Murder" and "Invisible" with James Patterson - both of which are excellent reads

Good courtroom dramas need to be credible in order to work. This is a little bit too contrived with some very obvious holes in believability. First (and last) book that I will read from this author. I question the integrity of the reviewers of this book. Much better courtroom genre books out.
