(From the publisher):
Defense attorney Joseph Antonelli dives into a case of White House intrigue, intimacies not forgotten, and suspicions dark and deep in this legal thriller.
In Breach of Trust, Antonelli is seduced into taking an old case that has dangerous implications not just for the upcoming United States presidential race but also for a group of old friends who thought they had put the sudden death of a young woman behind them long ago. When Antonelli attends a Harvard Law School reunion in Manhattan, at the very same hotel where the lively young woman fell from a window to her death, he doesn't suspect how disturbing his return will be.
The case was never solved at the time and now has been reopened, and a potential witness - a man with promise and ambition in equal measure - is wary that the story may ruin his political chances to run for vice president of the United States. When the trial begins, the nation's eyes turn to the accused - a downtrodden lawyer who was once a member of this elite circle of friends - and also to the unseen powers both within and without the White House who want to bury him. It is up to the shrewd and sharp Antonelli to uncover just where the secrets lie-and exactly who is playing whom.
