“Rosenfelt walks a line between pulse-pounding suspense and laugh-out-loud humor…One of the best in the business.”—Associated Press

“Entertaining…a good-natured read that isn’t quite as easygoing as it seems. Like its hero.”

Over the course of his legal career, Andy Carpenter has lost a few cases. But that doesn’t mean he forgets his clients. Andy has always been convinced that Joey Desimone, a man convicted of murder nine years ago, was innocent—and that Joey’s family’s connections to organized crime played a pivotal role in his conviction. While there isn't much Andy can do while he serves out his prison sentence, there is one way he can help Joey: By checking up on his elderly Uncle Nick and taking his dog, Tara, on a few visits.

Nick’s memory is going, but when Andy tries to explain why he’s there, it jogs something in the old man’s mind—and his comments leave Andy wondering if he just might hold the key to Joey’s freedom after all. Andy grabs on to this thread of possibility and follows it into a world where the oath of silence is stronger than blood ties…and where people will do anything to make sure their secrets stay hidden.
