Following the victim’s funeral, her family files a lawsuit against the gun company who manufactured the killer’s weapon of choice. The lawyers for the plaintiff and defendant—Kelly Starling and Jason Noble—are young, charismatic, and successful. They’re also easy blackmail targets, both harboring a personal secret so devastating it could destroy their careers. Millions of dollars—and more than a few lives—are at stake.

This latest book by Randy Singer was inspired by real events that took place which made it a bit more interesting than your average legal thriller. Add to that the fact that he had readers vote for the verdict and then went with the majority and you have a book that proves to be very interesting. Singer is kind of the Christian genre's version of John Grisham and his books are just as suspenseful.
I liked this book once I got into it, it started off with a bang and then kind of stalled a bit for me. Once it got going again though it was one that I had a hard time putting down. I do have to say that I was trying to read this on a flight to California, so I may have been more distracted through some of it than the average reader so that might be why I had trouble. For the majority of the book it was really an excellent book.The book focuses on the issue of gun control and Singer does an excellent job of laying out both sides of the issue. I think readers will really find this a fun, exciting, suspenseful read well worth their time.
