About This Book

Duncan Riley, a rising legal star, is defending his firm’s major client, Roth Properties, after a fatal accident on a downtown construction site. Meanwhile, he represents a helpless young man accused of a murder in a housing development being built by . . . Roth Properties. Caught in a web of power, money, and influence, Duncan must balance the interests of his firm, the demands of his wealthy client, and the weight of his own conscience. All is not as it seems, however, and blackmail and homicide may just be two more hardball tactics in the cutthroat world of New York real estate.

    A Cure for Night
    A Novel
    A Washington Post Best Book of the Year Edgar Nominee– Best First Novel Joel Deveraux is a rising star at a white-shoe law firm in Manhattan. But after a drug-related scandal costs him his job and nearly his law license, he slides down the corporate ladder to the Booklyn Defenders office. He arrives just in time for a high profile murder case, where he is assigned to work with the tough and savvy Myra Goldstein. With pressure from their boss and interest from the tabloids, they take on the defense of a black pot dealer from the projects who is charged with the murder of a white college student. Joel quickly learns that urban criminal law is a form of combat where the best story wins–but who’s telling the truth and who’s lying are matters of life and death.
