Murder One (David Sloane Book 4)
In this riveting legal thriller from Robert Dugoni, the #1 Kindle bestselling author of MY SISTER'S GRAVE, attorney David Sloane takes on his first criminal case…defending the woman he loves.
Recovering from the shock of his wife's murder the previous year, David Sloane returns to Seattle after some much-needed healing time in Mexico. At a black-tie benefit he reconnects with Barclay Reid, an attorney he went head-to-head with years earlier in the most important case of his career. Like Sloane, Barclay has problems beyond the courtroom, having recently lost her daughter to a drug overdose. In spite of their previously antagonistic relationship, Sloane finds himself falling for Barclay, stirring up feelings he hasn't felt since the death of his wife.
When Barclay is accused of murdering a Russian drug dealer, Sloane is her only defender. In his first criminal case, Sloane must juggle intensifying media attention and mounting danger, all while diving deep into the past of the mysterious and complicated woman he loves.
With plot twists galore and non-stop tension, New York Times bestselling author Robert Dugoni earns his stripes once again as the heir to Grisham's literary throne.
