Synopsis

A gripping legal thriller from the No.1 Sunday Times bestselling author and creator of Sooley and The Judge's List.
_______________________________________
Michael Brock is a man in the fast lane.

He's a rising star at Drake & Sweeney, a giant Washington law firm. No time to waste, no time to help those in need. No time for a conscience.

But when a violent encounter with a homeless man stops him cold, Brock is forced to confront the truth about who he really works for. What he finds is a shocking violation of the rights of the homeless, with Drake & Sweeney at the centre, and suddenly his conscience begins to stir.

To do the right thing, Brock must put himself in the firing line and uncover his employer's most dangerous secrets.

But is he willing to risk it all?
