David Sloane is at the top of his game professionally. He's a wrongful death attorney in San Francisco who can take a no-win case and turn it into a winner.

But David Sloane's personal life is not as successful. He's single, doesn't have a family and is a workaholic who has begun having a reoccurring dream about his childhood that terrifies him.

Sloane receives a package from a personal friend and advisor of the President of the United States who has apparently committed suicide. The package and its contents set into motion a series of events over which people die and Sloane's history will be revealed--if only he can stay alive long enough to figure it out.

The story alternates between Sloane, Detective Tom Molia and Charles Jenkins and Alex Hart. While the different groups of people are necessary to the story line, the transitions are numerous and occasionally interfere with the plot movement.

Armchair Interviews says: Even with the over abundance of scene transitions, Robert Dugoni's debut novel is non-stop action. The information needed to break the case is provided slowly but with such intensity that you don't want to put the book down. The question is always, what's going to happen next?
