Booklist Review
What better way to influence the outcome of the trial of the century than to serve on its jury? When movie star Bobby Solomon is charged with murdering his wife, who costarred with him in a major film due for release, and his chief of security, both found naked in bed in Solomon's Manhattan brownstone, high-powered attorney Rudy Carp takes the defense and persuades Eddie Flynn, con man turned lawyer, to assist him. When the movie studio pulls its financial support, Carp jumps ship, but Flynn believing his client innocent stays the course, even though it means giving up a job at Carp Law that's a potential lifeline for saving his marriage. Flynn soon finds he's up against the sophisticated serial killer known to the FBI as Dollar Bill, for the distinctly marked bills he leaves by his victims. Dollar Bill's unusual MO includes targeting those charged with the murders he himself commits. From the start, it's clear to the reader that the killer has maneuvered his way onto the Solomon jury, and action accelerates when the defense team puts together the bigger picture. A red herring is a bit disconcerting, but it doesn't substantially lower the impact of the adrenaline-fueled finale. A knockout legal thriller with a doozy of a twist.--Michele Leber Copyright 2019 Booklist
