Summary

Brought to you by Penguin.

Stafford Lee Penney is the best defence lawyer in Mississippi - he's never lost a case. Until now.

Hot on the heels of his latest courtroom victory, his wife is brutally murdered. Devastated, Stafford Lee spirals into a losing streak that forces him to abandon his once brilliant career.

But his wife's killer is still on the loose and they seem determined to frame Stafford Lee for their crimes. Rising from rock bottom, he makes a bold return to court - to defend himself in the biggest murder trial this town has ever seen.

Stafford Lee must crack the toughest case of his career. And this time, it's personal.

No1 Lawyer

The story itself was well constructed and the characters interesting and complex . The courtroom battles appeared authentic although I’m not a lawyer.

Great gripping story

I listened to this driving back from France. It was gripping and made the journey go very fast. I just there are more to come. It has a series written all over it

A big floop

The story is pretty weak, The Accents annoying, no where near his best. I suppose that we all have off days.
