Leo Maxwell thinks hee(tm)s found a career-making case when a mysterious woman nearly runs him down, then appears at his office to hire him to defend her brother on a murder charge. One problem: Leo hasne(tm)t actually met the client when he sets out to investigate what seems like a hot tip on a burgeoning scandal in the Oakland Police Department. When he presents evidence of deep-set corruption in the Department to the District Attorneye(tm)s office, he quickly learns that all is not as it seems, beginning with Leoe(tm)s client and the alluring woman who hired him. Leoe(tm)s eoeclient,e as he learns to his humiliation, is actually represented by Nikki Matson, one of Oaklande(tm)s most notorious gangland lawyers. Whate(tm)s more, the client knows nothing about Leo being hired to defend him and claims not even to have a sister. Soon after Leo realizes that hee(tm)s been set up by unknown persons to be the number one enemy of both the police and the gangs, he also discovers hee(tm)s also being framed for Matsone(tm)s murder. He knows hee(tm)s a marked man unless he can bring those responsible to justice. Bodies pile up as Leo closes in on his tormenters, while at the same time, they are closing in on him.

display_descriptionNow working as a criminal defense attorney in Oakland, Leo Maxwell thinks he's found a new client after a mysterious woman knocks him off his bicycle with her car. She just so happens to have a brother who needs defense on a murder charge. Leo readily agrees and dives right into the investigation. After taking a series of photographs that seem to blow the lid on corruption in the police department, Leo quickly discovers he's been had. His client already has representation-one of Oakland's most renowned gangland lawyers-and claims he doesn't have a sister. Drawing the ire of criminals and crooked cops alike, Leo is soon framed for murder. Just as he thinks he's getting closer to the truth, danger is getting even closer.
