In this next electifying thriller from up-and-coming author Mark Arsenault, former journalist and beaten-down gambler Billy Povich returns to aid Martin Smothers, the Patron Lawyer of Hopeless Causes.
Martin's old law partner, the well-respected superior court judge Gilbert Harmony, has been shot by a thief who dies in a car crash. The cops close the case, but Martin doesn't believe a two-bit shoplifter would suddenly kill a judge---somebody must have paid him to do it.
The suspects range from a vengeful mobster to a jealous brother to the judge's widow, and---oops---his mistress and her son. And as Billy comes closer to the truth, it isn't long before the killer takes aim at him.

A legal thriller so authentic, it reads like tomorrow's headlines.
When Tom Perini, a legendary Heisman Trophy winner turned criminal lawyer, is found brutally murdered in Central Park, his widow Julie Perini suspects a wider conspiracy. Not only was her husband part of the defense team for a Congressman on trial for bribery, her intuition also tells her that the FBI is not too eager to find the killer.
Relying on her skills as a journalist, Julie begins her own investigation and soon discovers her late husband's secret underworld associations: ties that now threaten her and her toddler's lives. Fighting grief and a sense of betrayal, Julie is pulled into an inescapable labyrinth of organized crime dealings, political corruption, brutal power grabs and murder.
Desperate, Julie turns to Vincent Sorrentino, Tom's defense partner, for help, and the two discover a shocking and terrifying truth that threatens to paralyze them. But it may also hold the key the only key to saving the lives of Julie and her daughter.
Renowned attorney Paul Batista seamlessly combines crack legal expertise with suspenseful storytelling to produce a pulse-pounding action story and a first rate courtroom procedural.
‘You’ll learn what it’s like out there in the streets, and we’ll learn whether you’re competent to wear the uniform.’
From nine to five, they are like the rest of us. Come the twilight, they don the blue uniform with pride, and volunteer their spare time to share the night vigil of the Bobby on the beat.
BOB LOACH, a partner in a coach tour business, is ‘all grease and few graces’, with an ambition to be the first millionaire Special. ANJALI SHA is an NHS physiotherapist who treads the minefield of conflicting traditions: ‘My family think it’s a bad business for a well brought-up Hindu girl to prowl the streets at night with a man.’ JOHN REDWOOD is a solicitor with an unshakable belief in the decency of his fellow-man. VIV SMITH is a young bank clerk: ‘It might come as a surprise to you, Sarge, but not all women come with a built-in maternal expertise of how to deal with kids.’ And FREDDY CALDER, an overweight salesman of ladies’ lingerie, conceals a shy and sentimental heart under a brash exterior.
Five ordinary people whose commitment makes them extraordinary.
