In an exciting new series that critics have called "John Grisham meets Robert Ludlum," criminal defense lawyer Jack Swyteck faces his biggest challenge yet.Tatum Knight is a former contract killer. Ruthless. Conniving. And he's Jack's newest client. He's been named in the will of a gorgeous young woman who was shot dead in her Mercedes on a Miami street.
Sally Fenning was worth forty-eight million dollars when she died. Money had never made her happy, so she left it all to her enemies -- left it for them to fight over, that is. No one gets a penny until all but one of the heirs are dead. It's survival of the greediest.
The lawyers gear up for a bitter legal battle, but Jack braces himself for much worse. As the heirs begin to fall, Jack is in a race against time to discover if Tatum -- or someone even more frightening -- is the odds-on favorite to be the last to die.

The landscape of Sally Fenning's life changes violently when she is viciously attacked and her 4-year-old daughter is killed. Five years later, following a second marriage to a wealthy man, she walks into a bar to negotiate for a murder--hers. Her will leaves $46 million to six people whom she had reason to hate, with the stunning twist that no one can collect until the others have dropped out or died. It's no surprise when the heirs begin to show up dead. Nick Sullivan's comfortable voice is superb with every character, from the approachable Jack Swytek to an Italian goon, a Latino ex-husband, and the sophisticated Vivian. Sullivan's talented delivery and modulations of vocal characteristics create a believability that is flawless. F.L.F. © AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
