With money and hope in short supply, newly minted attorney Brigham Theodore decides it’s time to lower his standards. He joins a seedy fly-by-night firm in Salt Lake City out of desperation. After he loses his first case—a speeding ticket—he’s convinced his career is over. But to his shock, his boss hands him a slightly more complex case: capital murder.
Brigham’s new client is Amanda Pierce, a lost, exhausted woman who gunned down the man who tortured and killed her six-year-old daughter. A jury may prove sympathetic to her unbearable pain, but the law is no fan of vigilante justice—and neither is Vince Dale, the slick and powerful prosecutor who’s never lost a murder case. There’s no question that Amanda pulled the trigger—she did it in front of five witnesses. If she pleads guilty, she will avoid a death sentence, but saving her life this way comes with an admission that what she did was wrong. However, if she refuses the “guilty” label, Brigham will have no choice but to fight for his career—and Amanda’s life.
Being such a short book of only 178 pages, I managed to finish it in just 2 sittings. Saying that i did sit and read for a while each time as I was really enjoying it.
The main Character Brigham is pretty likable, and I really wanted him to do well and succeed in what he was doing. His first big case as a new Lawyer is a murder case.
But with the evidence all stacked up against his client, what is he supposed to.
Although this was such a short story, i feel if I say too much about it, it will ruin it for you to read. It is a pretty good story line, and interesting enough to keep you going.
