If I don’t do my job, then the system doesn’t work, and if the system doesn’t work, we all suffer for it. The seventh canon. A lawyer should represent a client zealously within the bounds of the law.
Intense and intriguing- I was hooked. Father Martin gave shelter to young boys from the streets in the late 80’s is accused of murder of one of the boys he gave sanctuary. A brutal murder that points to a cover up.
Donley is given the task to represent Father Martin when is uncle Lou is unable to take the case due to a sudden health issue. The case brings up Donley’s past that he has struggled to forget but as he digs deeper into the case, he realizes that he is fighting for an innocent man and the demons that continue to torment him. With the evidence stacked up against his client, Donley knows that he must find the killer himself to exonerate Father Martin.
Fast pace and with a complex character in Donley who fights for his client, you as the reader will be rooting for him to find justice.
