Despite being compared to the work of Scott Turow, this legal thriller is not compelling—nor is its narration. When a Yale Law School graduate loses his job at a prestigious law firm job because of a cocaine incident, he tries to redeem himself by working at the public defender’s office at a fraction of his former pay. Soon he's involved with the defense of a man charged with murder. While narrator James Colby has a pleasant voice, his delivery is choppy. He frequently splits phrases meant to be read together and often provides dialogue attributions a second too late. After a short time, the listener becomes distracted from the story.
