Format: PDF / Kindle (mobi) / ePub
Amanda Jaffe was a rising star in Portland's legal community until her well publicized battle with a brilliant sociopath—ironically the trial that made her famous—left her traumatized, filled with self-doubt, and wary of the limelight. But now she's agreed to handle a case no one else will touch.
Her client, Jon Dupre, runs an upscale call-girl service and stands accused of murdering a high-profile U.S. senator. To Amanda, Dupre's story of an ultra-secret society of extremely powerful, dangerous, politically motivated men sounds like a criminal's desperate attempt to escape justice.

Amanda drove over for a workout that she hoped would clear her head. As she swam, she thought about her relationship with Mike Greene. She liked him, and she felt comfortable with him, but there was no spark. Amanda had been away from Oregon, except for short visits, since she started college at Berkeley. When

But the car that was driving without headlights came by a few seconds later.” “Can you give us a make or model on either car?” “Mr. Rubin did better than that,” DeVore said. “He got most of the license number on the car he saw right after the explosion.” “I didn’t get it all,” Rubin said apologetically. “It went by too fast.” “What about the car that was driving without headlights?” Gregaros asked. Rubin shook his head. “I was writing down the license

It would be helpful to have one of the original members of The Vaughn Street Glee Club as a government witness. It would mean a life sentence for you. But you have to act now. We haven’t started to interrogate Harvey Grant and Detective Gregaros, but they know that Ally is alive and that Tim set them up. I promised Tim we’d talk to you before we spoke to them.” “What’s it going to be,
