From the moment a bomb explodes in midwestern courthouse, all eyes turn to the suspect. It is left to a small-town lawyer to dig deep to defend an unlikeable guy with some peculiar habits. Written by long-time attorney Robert Isham Auler, it breathes fire and ice, and will even make you laugh on occasion. A first-time novelist with a lot to say and a great way of saying it.
