Summary (From the publisher):

If Danny Cartwright had proposed to Beth Wilson the day before, or the day after, he would not have been arrested and charged with the murder of his best friend. But when the four prosecution witnesses are a barrister, a popular actor, an aristocrat, and the youngest partner in an established firmís history, who is going to believe your side of the story?

Danny is sentenced to twenty-two years and sent to Belmarsh prison, the highest-security jail in the land, from where no inmate has ever escaped.

However, Spencer Craig, Lawrence Davenport, Gerald Payne, and Toby Mortimer all underestimate Dannyís determination to seek revenge, and Bethís relentless quest to pursue justice, which ends up with all four fighting for their lives,

Thus begins Jeffrey Archerís most powerful novel since Kane and Abel, with a cast of characters that will remain with you long after youíve turned the last page.

And if that is not enough, prepare for an ending that will shock even the most ardent of Archerís fans.
