When a beautiful woman is accused of murdering her husband, there is only one person she wants to represent her-Miami criminal defense attorney Jack Swyteck. What begins as a simple assignment, however, swiftly lurches into a twisting thrill-ride of unanswered questions and mounting suspicions on Jack's part. For the victim's husband was an officer at the US naval base in Guantanamo Bay and the son of a prominent Cuban exile-and her story changes with the breeze. With no experience in military justice and his faith in the honesty of his client tested at every turn, Jack embarks on a trial that will task all his reserves of knowledge and bring him face to face with the ultimate surprise witness.

"The evil in the latest thriller by this lawer-turned-novelist is not in the listening, but in the plotting. Jack Swyteck is back to defend a woman accused of killing her husband, a captain at the U.S. naval base in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. The first twist is that the woman's deaf adopted son, who was in the next room during the murder, may be Swyteck's offspring. The second is that one of Castro's soldiers, who was spying on the base, may be the only witness to the murder. Imagine bringing a Cuban soldier to Miami to testify. Nick Sullivan is especially believable when he performs Latin characters. His accents are near perfect, and his clear voice keeps the listener on the edge. A.L.H. (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine"
