About this ebook

Gold-Medal Winner of the Foreword Book of the Year Award

Deadly, high-stakes art fraud case—Enter at your own risk!

After graduating from Harvard Law with his closest friend, John McKedrick, Michael Knight practices with the U.S. Attorney's office and with a prestigious trial firm in Boston. Then Michael and his mentor, the legendary trial attorney Lex Devlin, form Devlin & Knight to do criminal defense work, while John becomes sole associate of a notorious mob lawyer. Michael never lost hope that John McKedrick would escape to "cleaner pastures"—until John is murdered in a car bombing bearing the signature of his questionable clientele. How could two friends who were so close have taken such wildly divergent paths?

In the wake of McKedrick's murder, three men who took their own deviating paths will meet for the first time in forty years. Matt Ryan, a priest; Dominic Santangelo, a Mafia don; and Lex Devlin put the past aside to focus on a present concern—Dominic's son has been charged with John McKedrick's murder. At Lex's urging, Michael Knight reluctantly agrees to represent the alleged bomber. In building a defense, Michael is drawn into a high-stakes art fraud that leads him from the seediest parts of Boston to the sophisticated Amsterdam inner sanctum of international crime.

Perfect for fans of Dennis Lehane and John Grisham

The plot and characters stretch believability so much that any potential enjoyment from an easy read and not bad writing is wasted. The praises on the book covers often amaze me, but this time it went beyond ridiculous when some idiot compared it to 'Mystic River'.
