Criminal defence lawyers must make their peace with one harsh fact of life: most of their clients are guilty.
Yet when William Tucker, a celebrated and self-centered star college football player, is suddenly arrested and charged with the brutal rape and murder of a college coed two years before, his broken-down, drunken estranged father, Frank, can't believe he's guilty. What father could?
But Frank is also an ex-criminal defence lawyer. Now Frank must find a way to sober up and save his son from the death penalty sought by an ambitious district attorney. Can a father's love for his accused son save him from death?

There are no listener reviews for this title yet.
I have enjoyed the previous books by Mark Giminez with mixed results. This book stands firmly in the excellent category. Well written characters and plot, combined with one of my favourite narrators from the Lee Child books.
"For American football enthusiasts!"
So much commentary about American football, there was very little basic storyline or plot.The story was supposed to about how the father overcame his addiction and ultimately solved the crime, thereby clearing the accusations against his son. In fact if you sliced off all the narrative about the football, you would be left with very little regarding storyline and plot
16 chapters along and barely anything was happening at all. I kept listening, through sheer boredom, but it didn't improve and I felt it was a waste of money.
He is always an OK narrator, easy to listen to and pleasant on the ear, possibly could be termed 'Ear Candy'
Disappointment that I'd wasted one of my credits!
Audible must try and give a better and nore accurate appraisal of the book! I'm not keen on English Football, but I loathe American Football!
