Once a con artist, now a hotshot lawyer, Eddie Flynn’s learned that fast talk and sleight of hand are just as important in the courtroom as they are on the street. That’s why Leonard Howell asks for Eddie’s help when his nineteen-year-old daughter goes missing – he needs someone willing to break the rules. but what if the whole thing was a set-up from the very beginning? With a client on trial for his life, and the body count rising, the only question is which is deadlier – a man who keeps his oath, or one who breaks it?
