Goodreads:  A man in prison for murder. One woman wants him freed. One woman wants him dead.

Mick McFarland is stunned when he’s arrested for murdering business tycoon Edwin Hanson, brother to David Hanson—one of Mick’s former clients. Mick is even more shocked when he’s confronted with the incriminating evidence: surveillance footage of him stalking the victim and pulling the trigger.

As Mick’s legal team fights against windmills trying to beat the prosecution in court, his wife, Piper, journeys across the country, trying to win her husband’s freedom by going after the man she is convinced is out to destroy Mick and David both. What she doesn’t anticipate is that David’s wife, Marcie, is on a similar mission to shelter her own husband. And the two women may not be on the same side.

Piper has it all right…and all wrong. And her time is running out. Will she be able to save her husband from conviction and clear his name?

Kritters Thoughts: The fourth in a series and although each case is contained in each book there are some definite throwbacks and character developments from book to book that you will want to know about before going into this one.  Each one reads so smoothly and has some uniqueness to each of them, so you can even read them straight in a row.

I read the first three in a row and loved it.  There was a delay between reading book three and four and I wish I didn't have a delay.  I think there were some details from book three that I was missing when it went to reading this book.  The case from book three was heavily featured in this one, so I would recommend reading them very close so you have that case in the back of your mind when you go to read this one.

Mick McFarland is arrested for murder very early into the book, so the book features those who surround him more than himself which was different from the other books.  His law firm has to figure out who really committed the murder and how to get him out of jail.  I loved that it took the whole team working together to solve the crime.  All had to use their individual skills to get to a solution.  

I love this series and hope that even if there aren't more in this series that Myers keeps writing.  I like how he develops characters and then creates plots that make such great reads.  

Rating: definitely a good read, but can't read two in a row
