About The Book

A brilliant and dogged young trial lawyer in San Francisco risks everything he holds dear to bring the most dangerous legal adversary in town to justice. 

Down on his luck after a string of lost cases and a recent divorce, personal injury lawyer Matt Taylor hopes his next trial will be an easy win. But when he meets a devastatingly injured young man desperate for help, Matt finds himself embroiled in an impossible lawsuit against Salvatore Conte, a powerful lawyer with sinister connections. Despite all warnings, Matt courageously pulls out all the stops to uncover the truth and right a horrific legal wrong. What follows is an epic multi-million-dollar battle of wills, intrigue, and outright violence that could cost Matt everything he cares about—his career, his family, his heart….and his life. 

“This is more than a good read; it is a masterpiece of courtroom drama, life of a trial lawyer, intrigue, intricate relationships, love, and one man’s perseverance for justice. Bostwick nailed it!” —William Whitehurst, Past President of The International Academy of Trial Lawyers, The Texas Trial Lawyers and the Texas Bar Association
