AN AMAZON #1 BESTSELLER – – INSPIRED BY A TRUE STORY
The time is 1982. The place is the South Bronx. A young lawyer is eager to prove he is better than the father who abandoned him and worthy of the mother who raised him beyond the siren call of the mobster dominated family he grew up in.
Working as a Bronx Legal Aid Attorney, Nick Mannino becomes an unbeatable defense lawyer – not a single conviction.
When a rape victim commits suicide after a trial he won but should have lost, he is devastated. Searching for absolution, he grabs the headline case of a defendant he is convinced is innocent.
Then one of the complaining witnesses turns up dead and he comes face-to-face with his greatest conflict and deepest fear: to win, really win, must he sacrifice every principle he believes in and embrace his family’s mafia past?
