The lawyer jokes were flying when Detective Ed Hathcox finished law school, hoping to join the FBI. But the humor dried up when a serial killer began targeting attorneys. Paired with veteran Detective Hal Barnes, they visit crime scenes where the main attractions are dead lawyers with missing tongues and the killer’s trademark — paper scraps adorned with Bible verses. What’s the connection? The victims were lawyers … but something else tied the murders together … the lawyers’ specialties, political connections, or something worse?
“A spellbinding thriller that takes on lawyer bashing and, on a larger scale, the poisonous impact of hate speech of all kinds. This is a riveting book with captivating, complex characters. I predict you will be turning pages late into the night. Highly recommended.” — William Bernhardt, bestselling author of The Last Chance Lawyer
