Detroit attorney and former alcoholic Charley Sloan lost his practice, his wife, and his fortune to booze. A chance at a comeback arrives in his former lover, Robin Harwell. She's now the desperate widow of a multimillionaire--and stepmother of the teenage girl charged with his brutal murder. Damned by forensic evidence, witness testimony, a history of mental problems, and by her own confession, young Angel's defense will be hard coming--and believing in her innocence could come at a price far more personal than he ever feared. As the media descends, Charley finds himself shadowed by rivals determined to destroy him, trapped in the seductive grip of a never-forgotten love affair, and plunged in a dark morass of terrible lies, bitter secrets, and unforgiving family ties...

Hope Scott... She's a beautiful New York heiress who will do anything for love, including pulling strings with a ruthless power broker to advance her husband's judicial career. But she doesn't know the hidden price; a blackmail, the rape of her trust fund, and perhaps the ruin of her marriage. Judge Paul Murray... He fought his way up from his working-class Irish roots to the Federal bench. Tough and honest, dedicated to the law, he relishes sitting on the case before to rival some of America's biggest corporate takeovers. The heart of justice.. The outcome is worth billions, the tactics cutthroat, and suddenly, with the threatened exposure of a ruinous secret, everything Paul cares about is on the line--his marriage, his career, his reputation. Now faced with choices he never thought he'd have to make, he must confront what truly lies at the heart of justice... With lighting dialogue and authentic courtroom action, William J. Coughlin, former prosecutor and bestselling author of In the Presence of Enemies and Shadow of a Doubt, spins another superb legal thriller filled with emotions on the fire, intellects at war, and an outcome exploding with excitement and surprise.

And when idealistic young defense attorney Ben Kincaid gets the dancer off on a technicality, the city erupts. Unable to try their suspect a second time, the Tulsa police build a case against Kincaid, arresting him after they stumble across the murder weapon in his office.

A prosecutor defies the FBI, CIA, and Mafia to bring terrorists to justice in this thriller from the New York Times–bestselling author of Justice Denied. After hijacking a flight to Milwaukee, a group of Croatian terrorists inform the FBI of bombs they’ve planted across the country. If their demands are not met, the bombs will explode. The plan goes perfectly until one of the weapons goes off in the Bronx, killing a police officer—in assistant district attorney Butch Karp’s jurisdiction. Prosecuting a few terrorist cop killers should be a slam-dunk, but Karp and his assistant, Marlene Ciampi, are getting resistance from unexpected quarters—including the NYPD itself. The Archdiocese of New York hires a top lawyer to defend the accused. And when the FBI, CIA, and Miami Mafia team up to undermine the case, it’s clear these Croatians are no ordinary terrorists. As Karp and Ciampi uncover powerful ties, and secrets that reach from anticommunist Cuba to Nazi war crimes, they realize their fight for justice has become a fight for their lives. From the New York Times–bestselling author and former Manhattan assistant district attorney, Depraved Indifference is an insider’s “damning indictment of our court system and an entertaining exposé of the DA's office” (Publishers Weekly). This ebook features an illustrated biography of Robert K. Tanenbaum including rare photos from the author’s personal collection.

WHEN A BRUTAL RAPIST IS MURDERED, A LOVING FATHER STANDS ACCUSED OF THE CRIME. DEFENSE ATTORNEY DISMAS HARDY MUST DEFEND HIS BROTHER-IN-LAW AND OLD FRIEND MOSES McGUIRE IN A THRILLING CASE THAT HITS FAR TOO CLOSE TO HOME. Moses McGuire has good reason to be concerned about his beautiful twenty-three-year-old daughter, Brittany. She moves quickly from one boyfriend to the next, and always seems to prefer a new and mysterious stranger to a man she knows something about. But her most recent ex, Rick Jessup, isn’t willing to let her go, culminating in a terrible night when Brittany is raped. Within twenty-four hours, Rick Jessup is dead, Moses McGuire is the prime suspect in the investigation, and Dismas Hardy has been hired to defend his brother-in-law. Making things even more complicated, McGuire has fallen off the wagon, and his stay in prison could bring to light old secrets that would destroy Hardy and his closest colleagues’ careers. As the overwhelming evidence against McGuire piles up, Dismas Hardy focuses on planting doubt in the minds of the jurors—until, in a feat of legal ingenuity that is staggering in both its implications and its simplicity, Hardy sees a new way forward that might just save them all. But at what price? For the first time since 2009, Dismas Hardy, the author’s most beloved protagonist, returns in a masterful novel that showcases Lescroart’s extraordinary story-telling gifts: a cast of flesh-and-blood characters, morally complex situations, and relentless, nail-biting suspense.

Introducing an electrifying new voice in legal fiction--in a phenomenal thriller unlike anything you've read before... Debut author Sheldon Siegel bursts into the legal arena with a riveting courtroom drama, exposing the world of big-time law firms and lawyers in a sharp-witted, wonderfully sardonic page-turner of a novel. Meet Mike Daley. Ex-priest. Ex-public defender. Ex-husband. And as of yesterday, ex-partner at Simpson & Gates, one of San Francisco's most prominent law firms. Today he's out on his own, setting up a private practice on the wrong side of town. Then his best friend and former colleague is charged with a brutal double murder. Daley has his first client--and is instantly catapulted into a high-profile case involving the prestigious law firm that just booted him. The victims are one of Simpson & Gates's most powerful partners and a beautiful young associate. There's a suicide note on the partner's computer, but neither the police nor the ambitious district attorney believe it's authentic--and they think the man they've arrested is the killer. It's up to Mike Daley to prove them wrong, but time is very short. As Daley prepares his case, he begins to uncover the firm's dirtiest secrets--and dirty they are--but he also discovers that his friend, too, has a lot to hide. Even as the trial is under way, Daley and his investigators are still frantically digging for evidence that will clear their client. Against a chorus of morning press reports and nightly TV commentaries picking apart each day's session, Daley comes to realize that ambition, politics, greed, and long-standing grudges will play just as important a role in the outcome as truth and justice. This is the real world of law practice at work, and it's as ruthless as it is startling. Brilliantly paced, witty, crackling with energy and suspense, Special Circumstances not only brings us to a stunning denouement; it zestfully reminds us why we love to hate lawyers--but can't get enough of courtroom drama when it's done this well. In a stunning turn of events, Daley's best friend, an ex-colleague, is charged with the double murder of two lawyers at the old firm and asks Daley to defend him. Cobbling together a defense team composed of himself, his ex-wife, and a onetime courtroom fixture named Mort Goldberg who's been wished on him against his better judgment, Daley finds he's got more to defend than his friend's innocence. The newly elected media-hungry District Attorn- ey, also a former colleague, will prosecute the case himself. As court is called into session, it becomes clear that in this trial ambition, honor, friendship, greed, and longstanding grudges will play as important a role as truth and justice. Rarely has a legal thriller debut so accurately depicted not only the inner workings of the legal system but the crack-ling energy it takes to build and defend a felony case. In SPECIAL CIRCUMSTANCES author Sheldon Siegel reminds us why we love to hate lawyers -- but can't get enough of courtroom drama when it's done this well. --> From the Hardcover edition.

The case against young Travis Morgan is simple: he walked into his father's house and shot the man at his desk in front of two witnesses. The fact that the murdered man was not his father is immaterial: he still killed a man in cold blood. Although he admits to a passionate hatred and fear of his father, Travis swears he is innocent. This is the case attorney Barbara Holloway is presented with. The trouble is she believes Travis, even though the eyewitness accounts appear irrefutable. As Barbara digs deeper, the case explodes into a dangerous conspiracy, causing Frank, Barbara's father and part-time associate, to hire a bodyguard to protect her.
