Dr. Phillip Madison was flying too near the sun. He had it all. The perfect job. The perfect wife. The perfect reputation. He is a man on the rise. How is it then that he stands accused of 'murder one'? The callous slaying of two nobodys on the darkness of a California highway. His car did the deed, he has no alibi, and it seems that he has no hope.
But as this brutally twisting story gets going, it starts to seem that nothing is straightforward. He is fighting to prove himself to a world that his falling apart around his ears. To his wife - he is an adulterer, to his colleagues - a pariah, and to the Law - a murderer.
This is an original, searching and powerful first thriller from a talented new American author, who combines the best of Grisham and Michael Crichton.
