Summary
This Shamus Award–winning mystery was named a Best Book of the Year by Kirkus Reviews and Deadly Pleasures. Leo Maxwell grew up under the care of his older brother, Teddy, a successful yet reviled criminal defense attorney, after their father was jailed for their mother's murder. Now a rookie lawyer, Leo must be there for Teddy after he's shot in the head and falls into a coma. Given that Teddy has enemies on both sides of the law in San Francisco, Leo realizes the search for his brother's shooter falls on him. But as he begins to examine the life of a brother he barely knew, Leo uncovers a list of suspects longer than he imagined. With the gunman still on the loose, Leo needs to find him fast—in this suspenseful novel that won the 2014 Shamus Award for Best First P.I. Novel. "The final showdown is hair-raising. . . . Sensitive, ingenious and suspenseful. A series is promised and very welcome indeed." —Kirkus Reviews "Promises to be the start of a riveting series." —Richmond Times-Dispatch
