(From the publisher):
He took a chance, told a lie. Then a plane went down -- and the nightmare began...
Michael Ashmore, senior partner at a top law firm, has a reputation he cherishes. In a world of liars, he's an honest man. So he shouldn't start an affair with a junior attorney at his firm. But he loves her. As a major airline's counsel, he shouldn't hide a failed drug test for his pilot brother, Charlie. But the test showed a mere trace of a prescription sleeping pill. And Charlie swears he'll never touch a pill again.
Then Charlie's plane crashes, killing everyone on board. Charlie is found loaded with barbiturates. Now Michael, himself charged with reckless homicide, doesn't have a snowball's chance in hell. And that's just what someone planned. For Michael Ashmore, soft-hearted, hard-headed trial lawyer, has been chosen as the perfect patsy in a chilling conspiracy. And he has until the verdict comes in to find out who and why...
