About this ebook

From New York Times bestseller John Lescroart comes an explosive look at the seductive power of revenge and the terrible costs of justice. 

The Curtlees are a powerful force in San Francisco, unscrupulous billionaires who've lined every pocket in the Bay Area in pursuit of their own ascent. So when the family's heir, Ro Curtlee, was convicted of rape and murder of a servant girl in the family home, the fallout against those responsible was swift and uncompromising. The jury foreman was fired from his job and blacklisted. The lead prosecutor was pushed off a career fast track. And head homicide detective Abe Glitsky was reassigned to the police department's payroll office.
 
Then Ro's lawyers win him a retrial, and he’s released. Within 24 hours, a fire kills the original trial's star witness, her abused remains discovered in the ashes. When a second fire claims a participant in the case, Abe is convinced that Ro is out for revenge. But with no hard evidence and an on-the-take media eager to vilify any challenger, Abe finds himself in the crosshairs, wondering how much more he can sacrifice in the name of justice.

Fast paced action with a bit of who done it mystery. I didn't like the way the main characters of the book were conveniently killed without having to unravel the intrigue plot line.
