Sheldon Siegel brings back two of the most fun lawyers in all of fiction back. Mike Daily and Rosie are asked to do something they have not done before. That is, defend their daughter's (Grace) boyfriend accused of the murder of his father who was a prominent judge. This is one case that will test their skill as they are personally involved with the defendents and have to put aside their parenting bias.
The evidence against Grace's boyfriend is enormous and his only defense seems to be the alibi of Grace. As always they have to lock horns with their out of court friend, Roosevelt, who is the arresting detective and need to investigative skills of their brother Pete to help out. It seems the Judge had a powerful enemy and also the Judge was involved in some shady business himself.
Sheldon keeps you guessing up to the end as to Grace's and her boyfriend's involvement and does a wonderful job of making this book difficult to put down. I also enjoyed the interplay between Mike, Rosie and Grace and when the lawyers must interogate their daughter and have to worry about winning their case at the possible cost of ruining the relationship with Grace. I hope Siegel will do another Mike and Rosie tale!
