Description

From the masterful New York Times bestselling and two-time Edgar Award-winning author of The Last Child and Down River, comes this tour de force of murder and the dark ripples it sends through a man, his family and community. Jackson Workman Pickens-known to most as Work-mindlessly holds together his life: a failing law practice left to him when his father, Ezra, mysteriously disappeared, a distant wife, and a fragile sister, Jean, damaged by the shared past they've endured. And then Ezra's body is discovered. Set to inherit his father's fortune, Work becomes a prime suspect. But so does Jean. Fearing the worst, Work launches his own investigation, crossing paths with a power-hungry detective, a string of damning evidence, and the ugly rumors that swirl within his small, moneyed Southern town. Desperate for the redemption that has eluded him for so many years and stripped of everything he once valued, Work fights to save his sister, clear his name, and regain the love of the woman to whom he gave his heart so many years before.

Professional reviews

"Considering all of the dark things he's experienced in his life, it's a wonder that "Work" Pickens, a defense attorney with a past, can even get out of bed in the morning. But rise he does, and David Chandler portrays Pickens's angst. Chandler's voice is strong and sure, but he reads with little emotion and seems to be as interested in getting through the book as he is in giving it depth. Some of the problem is that the author has stuffed this book with every clichŽ known to the legal thriller. Chandler is a decent narrator who deserves better material. R.I.G.
