"Landay is a lawyer with a solid grasp of how to use courtroom scenes to advance his jigsaw-puzzle story. . . . [W]ith a grabby premise and careful plotting, he keeps you turning the pages through the shocking gut-punch of an ending." - Thom Geier 02/03/2012 "There's no mistaking this novel's trial scenes for the work of anyone but a lawyer. Mr. Landay pays a lot of attention to tactics, both legal and dramatic ones." - Janet Maslin 02/13/2012
