Daniel Ames is a rising star in one of Portland's most prestigious law firms, however the lack of a silver spoon in his background makes him uncomfortable amongst his professional peers. He believes he has something to prove, so he is easily persuaded to take on the most tedious and least rewarding tasks. One of them is to swiftly evaluate a batch of documents a pharmaceutical company has to provide to prove they have properly tested a drug which is now being cited as the cause of babies being born deformed. However when the documents are turned over to the lawyer acting for the parents of the deformed children, papers are discovered which seem to prove that the company's original research had thrown up some adverse results. Daniel is fired for missing these papers and it looks as though his legal career is at an end. But he knows those papers were not present when he was assessing the whole file, so who is rigging the evidence? Determined to see justice done to the damaged children as well as to his own future, Daniel delves deeper into the murky netherworld of malpractice suits and discovers there is no limit to the determined greed of the compensation vultures.

Rising above his poverty-stricken childhood, Daniel Ames is now an associate at the prestigious law firm, Reed, Briggs, earning more money than he ever dreamed possible. One of their biggest clients, Geller Pharmaceuticals, is being sued for manufacturing a drug that Aaron Flynn, a civil litigator, claims causes unspeakable birth defects. When Daniel is drawn into investigating the case by outside forces, his world comes tumbling down around him. His work is sabotaged, he's accused of professional incompetence, and he's fired. Soon after, the man who fired him is murdered, and Daniel is arrested. As Daniel scrambles to clear his name and reputation, he unearths a trail of deceit that leads back to a series of kidnappings seven years earlier. I thoroughly enjoyed this mesmerizing tale of gripping suspense which reveals the criminal stealth and greed in the high-stakes world of pharmaceutical research. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to others.
