A big-firm Dallas lawyer loses everything while gaining his self-respect in this exciting story of politics, greed, and murder. Asked by a judge to defend an African-American prostitute, single mother, and heroin addict, Scott Fenney reluctantly agrees although the victim is the son of a senator with presidential ambitions. Brian Keith Lewis adopts a confidential tone as he becomes Fenney, other cogs in the legal machinery, the senator, the accused (who refuses to plead guilty), and, most important, a pair of 9-year-old girls, one the lawyer's daughter and one the prostitute's. Their relationship as seen by author and reader makes this abridged but plausible story stand out. J.B.G. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/ MAY 06]
