About The Book

King of the courtroom, Cash McCahill, has been framed.

Ace criminal attorney Cash McCahill makes two potentially fatal mistakes. First, he agrees to represent a cartel kingpin, who lays down an ultimatum of win or else.

Not even an acquittal will save Cash if his second mistake surfaces. His affair with the client’s wife turns him into the perfect pawn to take a fall for the cartel.

Falsely convicted of jury tampering, he must survive a prison teeming with enemies and navigate the more dangerous world on the outside in order to clear his name, regain his law license, and return to his only real home—the courtroom.
