From the Publisher
Editors Note Defending Charlie, a petty con man and former fugitive who hid in Africa for twelve years after being falsely implicated in the murder of a congressman, criminal lawyer Amanda Jaffe struggles to prove the man's innocence while endeavoring to protect him from a vengeful African dictator. 150,000 first printing.
Annotation For a regular old petty thief, Charlie Marsh sure has a lot of dangerous individuals after him. And that $500,000 retainer that a magazine editor paid her for defending Marsh--who in a bizarre twist had recently become a bestselling self-help author--in a murder trial seems like slight compensation for the work that Amanda Jaffe is doing on Marsh's behalf. Jaffe (starring in her fourth thriller by Philip Margolin) has to get Marsh off the hook by figuring out who really murdered the U.S. congressman, while African secret service officers in the employ of a brutal dictator and an avenging father try to hunt Marsh down.
Editors Note 2 Amanda Jaffe, the heroine of Wild Justice and Proof Positive, is back—in this twisting tale of international intrigue and murder that leads her deep into the past . . . and into the crosshairs of a killer. Charlie Marsh, a petty thief and con man, becomes a national hero when he rescues the warden of a state penitentiary during a prison riot, but it doesn't take long before he is wanted again, suspected of killing a United States congressman. After twelve years of living in the African nation of Batanga, at the mercy of Jean-Claude Baptiste, a sadistic, power-mad dictator, Charlie flees for home to face his murder charge, when Baptiste learns about Charlie's affair with the tyrant's favorite wife. But it's not just the state of Oregon that's got it in for the philandering con. Criminal lawyer Amanda Jaffe has her work cut out for her. She must keep Charlie off death row, protect him from the head of Baptiste's deadly secret police, and prevent him from being caught by a shadowy killer who will stop at nothing to keep the truth about a decade-old crime buried forever.
