“After six years, the firm looked less like Lady Justice and more like a gold digger…” Alpha associate Will Lively should know. Winner of the biggest verdict in firm history, he’s a sure bet to make partner. But when the case finally pays off with a multi-million dollar fee, Will finds himself suddenly out of luck. His misfortune has barely begun. Instead of the corner office, he lands behind bars, charged with shooting his duplicitous boss, Dexter Billings. Losing everything he expected, Will finds what he wasn’t even looking for- his heart and soul. Is it too late? Or can his legendary lawyer, Justin Jackson, save him from a brutal Texas pen: “We’ve got murder, sex, violence, greed—a prominent lawyer, a handsome associate, an office tart, an All-American jock of a son. What the hell else could they possibly ask for?” Jackson demands. A spectacle of a trial? You’ll get one, and then some.
