" Hruska really knows how to write; fans of legal-thriller stars like John Grisham, John Lescroart, William Lashner, and especially Scott Turow will want to add this fine novel to their must-read lists". - Booklist

“This book will grab readers and have them hanging on for dear life, because of both excellent dialogue and non-stop action.” - Suspense Magazine
