9780061983870: The Last Innocent Man

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?

From the Inside Flap:

The papers call him the Ice Man. David Nash, defense attorney -- cool, unruffled, practically unbeatable in the courtroom. Most of his clients are guilty. A few may be monsters.

Suddenly the Ice Man is assailed by doubts and unanswerable questions. What is the cost of each victory, each rapist or murderer set free -- to society and to Nash's soul?

Then comes a case that may be Nash's redemption. A client whose innocence he can believe in, a rising lawyer and family man accused of the brual murder of an undercover vice cop. But as the case moves toward trial, new doubts grip him: What is truth and what is carefully fabricated falsehood? Is Nash, a a master at handling juries, being manipulated himself? And by whom? By the time Nash's perfect case is finished, the questions become a matter of life and death.


From the Paperback edition.

From the Back Cover:

"Jampacked plot... (Margolin) shows us... the difficulties of lawyers as people practicing in a system of justice which is the same for the guilty and the innocent... and exposes the costs paid by a conscientious lawyer in the coin of human feeling." -- The Washington Post.

"Exciting stumper, high pitched courtroom drama." -- Booklist.

"An intricate tale that weighs guilt, justice, and the law, this book also has plenty of action and drama. A real spellbinder." -- Library Journal
