Defense attorney David Nash has made a career out of setting monsters free—and no one does it better. Now a case has come to “the Ice Man” that could help cleanse Nash of the guilt and doubts that torment him: that rarest of all defendants, an innocent man.
A family man, a rising star in the legal profession, this new client has been accused of a heinous crime—the brutal murder of an undercover vice cop. But the case that is supposed to be Nash’s redemption could prove to be his downfall, dragging him into a dark and sinister world where lies and the truth are interchangeable; where the manipulator becomes the manipulated, and every answer spawns more complex and terrifying questions. And as the shadows close in around him, the final question that remains for David Nash concerns his own fate: life…or death?
