In a novel that races along like a hot desert wind, Freedman unleashes "one of the most extravagantly entertaining thrillers of the year" (Kirkus). Justice is blind--especially for criminal attorney Will Alexander who's trying the most hopeless case of his career. Convinced that his two motorcycle gang member-clients are innocent of murder, Will now must prove it to a ruthless D.A., a doubting judge, and a hostile jury.

display_description Forced out of his firm, a hard-living attorney takes on one final, highly charged case-defending a notorious gang of bikers against murder charges A few years ago, Will Alexander was the top criminal lawyer in Santa Fe, with a thriving practice, a famously flamboyant courtroom style, and a marriage that landed him on the front page of the society section. Now, though, his wife has left him, and his constant boozing and womanizing have put his career in jeopardy. When Will's partners ask him-forcefully-to take a leave of absence from the firm, his life in law seems finished. He has only one client: a gang of men who call themselves the Scorpions. Four rogue bikers are accused of committing a gruesome murder, and Will is the only one they want for their defense. Although all the evidence points toward their guilt, Will believes them, and it's time for these outlaws to stick together.
