Summary
Fifteen years have passed since the events in Black Water Rising, when lawyer Jay Porter was anticipating the birth of his first child. Grieving his wife and caring for two kids while his law practice falls apart, Porter is barely scraping by. That's when he agrees to represent murder suspect Neal Hathorne. Neal's the nephew and campaign manager of a black mayoral candidate, opposed by a DA whose office is in the process of prosecuting Neal. Nuanced characters, shifting and manipulative political allegiances, and a portrait of powerful black community make this a sophisticated, satisfying legal thriller. -- Description by Shauna Griffin
