Plea bargains may grease the rails of justice, but for Jamie Brock, prosecuting criminals is not about cutting deals. In her three years as assistant DA, shes never plea-bargained a case and vows she never will. But when a powerful defense attorney is indicted for murder and devises a way to bring the entire justice system to a screeching halt, Jamie finds herself at a crossroads. One by one, prisoners begin rejecting deals. Prosecutors are overwhelmed, and felons start walking free on technicalities. To break the logjam and convict her nemesis, Jamie must violate every principle that has guided her young career. But she has little choice. To convict the devil, sometimes you have to cut a deal with one of his demons.
Veteran attorney Singer turns out another admirable legal thriller that will again draw comparisons to the inestimable John Grisham. Jamie Brock, assistant DA for Milton County, Ga., doesnt do plea bargains. Shes about justice, but the lines blur when she faces defense attorney Caleb Tate, accused of murdering his wife, Rikki. Tate, who defended the man convicted of murdering Brocks mother, hatches a plan that dams the system and makes Brock question all she believes about justice. As Brock and lead detective LA Finnegan build a murder case against Tate and, perhaps, a relationship, Brock must also deal with Mace James, attorney for her mothers murderer and death sentence opponent. Brock must unravel the impossibly knotted strings of her mothers death; her fathers possible malfeasance; an execution; Tates role and the roles of two trusted advisers: her boss and her psychiatrist. Singer skillfully loosens the strings and reweaves them into a tale that entertains, surprises, and challenges readers to rethink justice and mercy. Agency: Alive Communications.

It is a masterful combination of incredible suspense and heartfelt emotion. You will find a main character who is conflicted with love/respect/doubt in her relationship with her father and with love/respect/doubt in her relationship with her mentor. Toss into that mix the introduction of an opponent who could strangely become an ally and you have a tale of justice deceived and justice revived.
This is one mystery that will keep you guessing until the very end--a Singer specialty!
