"Bernhardt is a master legal tour guide, taking the reader through the labyrinth of the judicial system of America’s heartland." –Mostly Murder
Ben Kincaid is not a superstar attorney. In Tulsa, Oklahoma, there are only a few lawyers who win headlines and big bucks. So when the notorious Apollo Consortium offers Ben a job as their in-house counsel, he takes it–for the money.
The violence in the streets outside the Apollo is nothing compared to the backstabbing politics of the firm. And when Ben wins his first case, he unwittingly sets up some bitter rivalry with his colleagues–rivalry that will culiminate in a fellow lawyer’s dead body and Ben charged with murder.
"Ben Kincaid is a refreshing change from the omniscient, holier-than-thou attorney/investigators whose courtroom acrobatics and aerial law displays are more show than substance." –Tulsa World
