Mike Daley and Rosie Fernandez return on May 16 in Sheldon Siegel’s JUDGMENT DAY
This is from author Sheldon Siegel who will be signing at the Poisoned Pen on May 20.
JUDGMENT DAY finds the ex-spouses tackling their most difficult case yet. Mike and Rosie are called in at the last minute to try to stop the execution of Nathan Fineman, a former mob lawyer who was convicted of murdering three people in the back room of Chinatown's notorious Golden Dragon Restaurant. Mike and Rosie face seemingly-insurmountable odds as they race the clock in a desperate search that takes them from squalid halls of San Quentin’s Death Row to the harsh back rooms of Chinatown to the mean streets of the teeming Tenderloin District. Their only hope is proving Fineman’s innocence—a task that looks impossible as forensics and witness accounts all point overwhelmingly toward his guilt. At the same time, Mike must also battle his own personal demons when the reputation of his deceased father—a San Francisco cop who was one of the first officers at the scene—is called into question. As the plot hurtles toward its stunning denouement, it becomes apparent that Judgment Day is approaching not only for Nate Fineman, but also for Mike’s father and for Mike and Rosie’s law firm.
PRAISE FOR JUDGMENT DAY
In a starred review, Booklist Magazine said the following about JUDGMENT DAY: “Drug dealers, wily lawyers, crooked businessmen, and conflicted cops populate the pages of this latest in a best-selling series. A compelling cast and plenty of suspense put this one right up there with the best of Lescroart and Turow.”
