This book is about a young lawyer who used everything he could find to defend an abused wife accused of murdering her abusive husband. It uncovers precisely how a trial works and what trial attorneys should do in envisioning and get everything set for a case. I was really overawe by the author's capability to bring each character quickly to life. There is no doubt that he has adeptness and understanding of the inner workings of the legal system. What's even more fascinating is that he was able to share his own vulnerability, apprehension and his inner strength to be victorious over this for the peace of mind of his client.
In addition to providing a very good mystery, the author did a smashing job ending of the story. This book took me on a roller coaster ride of emotions that I surely won't be able to take my mind off for days! It was such an eye opener and very timely to today's society.
I would highly suggest this book to be on the required reading list for every incoming law students all around the globe. To anybody who is into getting to know more about what makes a lawyer tick and all the work and processes that goes into a case, this is definitely the book for you.
