Publisher Description

To keep his practice alive, a desperate lawyer takes a case defending a battered wife
Just seven years after he left law school, Sid Kaplan was one of New York’s top defense attorneys. With a glittering style and a hunger for competition, he was as fierce as they come. He was the go-to lawyer for Manhattan’s toughest, flashiest criminals—until his mother’s death wrecked his confidence. Suddenly, the only way to sustain his sixteen-hour days was a ceaseless stream of cocaine and scotch, a combination that ruined his life’s work in a matter of months. His only remaining employees are Caleb and Julia—a pair of ex-clients who don’t mind working for irregular pay. Sid’s latest bum case is Priscilla Sweet, a drug addict with priors, violent tendencies, and a dead husband whom she may or may not have killed in self-defense. She also has dangerous friends, which means that defending Prissy will make Sid famous again—either on the front page, or in the obituaries.

Author attempted to be cute

It was a good book until the end. The author had excellent character development and few interesting twists, great back story that fattened the plot, but seemed to run out of steam and try to add a twist that was unnecessary. Generalized foreshadowing gave some clues as to the ending which had a good idea, but all in all it happened too quickly as if his editor said come on wrap it up.
