Synopsis: In Terry Lewisís successful debut novel, Conflict of Interest, attorney Ted Stevens concealed evidence in a murder case that might have freed his client. Why? Because that same evidence would have made Ted a suspect too. Privileged Information, Lewisís eagerly awaited second legal mystery, features Tedís partner, Paul Morganstein. While defending his late brotherís best friend on a murder charge, Paul obtains privileged information (which he is ethically bound not to disclose) leading him to conclude that his client committed another murder thirty years ago. The victim? Paulís brother.
Ted, trying hard to stay off the booze and keep his marriage together, has been suspended from the practice of law and relegated to investigative duties. Paul, the stable, responsible partner of their Tallahassee firm, is beginning to feel the stress of that responsibility. His Jewish mother is on his case for working too much and neglecting his family. There is a cash flow problem at the firm, a rebellious teenager at home, cracks in an otherwise strong marriage, and those extra pounds that seem to come with the extra worries. He is, as his doctor tells him, a heart attack waiting to happen.
And now he has to take on the biggest company, with the deepest pockets, in the Panhandle, defending a client who, incredibly, seems less concerned than his attorney that heís facing murder one. The deeper Paul digs, the more likely it seems that his client not only killed the vice president of Pinnacle Paper Company but knows a lot more than heíll say about the death of Paulís brother David. Investigation into the Pinnacle case is turning up new evidence that reveals more about his brotherís lifeóand deathóthan Paul can deny.
Does Paul honor the sacred oath of confidentiality and allow his brotherís murderer to go free, or does he breach that duty in the interest of a higher morality, a greater justice? Moreover, will his client decide that there is really only one way to be sure that Paul does not disclose this "privileged information"?
