The papers call him the Ice Man. David Nash, defense attorney -- cool, unruffled, practically unbeatable in the courtroom. Most of his clients are guilty. A few may be monsters.
Suddenly the Ice Man is assailed by doubts and unanswerable questions. What is the cost of each victory, each rapist or murderer set free -- to society and to Nash's soul?
Then comes a case that may be Nash's redemption. A client whose innocence he can believe in, a rising lawyer and family man accused of the brual murder of an undercover vice cop. But as the case moves toward trial, new doubts grip him: What is truth and what is carefully fabricated falsehood? Is Nash, a a master at handling juries, being manipulated himself? And by whom? By the time Nash's perfect case is finished, the questions become a matter of life and death.

Excellent work, I was overly impressed. This book was filled with the best characters, the best developing plot and the best conclusion. A truly wonderful thriller! An innocent man is on trial for the rape and murder of a prostitute who was really an undercover cop. David Nash, a defense attorney, must put his career on the line to find the real murderer before the Innocent Man will become the Guilty Man. This author truly has talent as I normally stay away from the courtroom drama. Suspense would pop out at the simplest element. My attention got me where I could not put the book down until I had read the entire thing. The ending is not what you expect at all. Don't miss this one!
