In a stunning debut thriller reminiscent of the work of David Baldacci, a young Boston lawyer becomes the chief suspect in the murder of a colleague. Scott Finn, rising star at a Boston law firm, has worked hard to pull himself out of the Charleston projects.When the body of his co-worker and old flame, Natalie Caldwell, floats to the surface of Boston Harbor, Finn is grief stricken. But almost immediately, he's tapped by the firm to replace her in the defense of a high-profile client. As he retraces Natalie's footsteps, Finn begins to unravel the awful mystery of her murder. But police lieutenant Linda Flaherty is also hot on the trail. What neither Finn nor Flaherty realize is what's at stake if the truth is uncovered: billions of dollars, the careers of the Massachusetts elite, and their own survival.

This is the first of a series about Boston-based lawyer Scott Finn and his circle of friends, clients and enemies. At this point, he's a fast-rising associate in a big, pricy law firm although based on his background, he doesn't fit the usual ivy league pattern. In the course of his adventure, he first meets Kozlowski, who reappears as an important character in the later books. It's a somewhat formulaic crime story, beginning with a murder, incorporating some of the usual stock characters; but it's very well written and the characters are better developed than is usual for this genre. A well constructed plot that moves quickly and keeps the reader fully engaged as underlying facts are revealed. Perhaps not quite as good as "Among Thieves" which comes later, but still good entertainment.

Run of the mill storytelling, barely mediocre plot, no surprises and some muddling paths to the end. It's not terrible but it's not that good either.

Characterization is very 80's style and very cheesy...lead "stars" are good looking, brilliant etc etc...
