From the New York Times bestselling author of The Family Business crime series comes a deliciously provocative legal page-turner about the Hudson family.
When famed attorney Bradley Hudson learns of his youngest son Langston's arrest for drug trafficking, he immediately assembles a team of lawyers and investigators, including members of his own family, to build a defense. With his reputation for being a shark in the courtroom, Bradley is confident he will get justice for his son--until he realizes he will be going up against an old foe, Assistant District Attorney James Brown. Is the ADA allowing his personal history with the Hudsons to influence his handling of the prosecution? To complicate matters, Bradley discovers that his older son, Lamont, a young lawyer and Bradley's right-hand man, has secretly been planning his exit from the family law firm to get out from under his father's shadow.
Desiree, Bradley's only daughter, is fresh out of law school and quite reserved compared to her siblings. She's the good girl who doesn't normally like to rock the boat, but in what could be considered the worst of all timing, she is secretly dating a man and a woman, and both relationships are on a collision course. Given the problems her family is facing, now is not the right time for Desiree to introduce
more drama to the mix, but she just can't seem to help herself.
