Paul Madriani's defense of a soldier on trial for murder - and the explosive government secrets it could reveal - propel Steve Martini's latest thriller. Madriani is faced with daunting ballistics evidence: a so-called "double tap" - two bullet wounds tightly grouped in the victim's head, shots that could have been made only by a crack marksman. Paul's client, Emiliano Ruiz, is accused of killing a beautiful businesswoman and guru of a high-tech software empire catering to the military. A key to the case: the murder weapon is one used solely in special operations, where the "double tap" has become the signature of the most skilled assassins. Madriani finds himself in a deadly legal quagmire - with a client who is unwilling to cooperate and prosecutors who stonewall his every question about the victim's shadowy business and his client's past. Justice, and the unvarnished truth, has never been so elusive - or so dangerous.
