"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
The victim of a frame-up, Wilmington, Del., police sergeant Lou Razzi loses not only his job but also his wife and daughter when he is sent to prison. Fifteen years later a witness comes forward to clear Razzi, now out of jail and a successful opal miner in Brazil. Returning home, Razzi finds things have changed in Wilmington. His ex-wife has married into a prominent family and his daughter has been adopted by her stepfather. Police procedures, due to the Miranda decision, are different, too: the strong-arm tactics Razzi and his fellow officers once favored are no longer tolerated. When beautiful assistant D.A. Honey Gold decides to teach Razzi the new rules, the sergeant proves as smart and intuitive as he is tough. With Honey's help, he digs further into the incident for which he was framed. While Razzi's early suspicions are so close to the mark that the criminals' unmasking may not surprise readers, former prosecuting attorney Brandt has written a fast-moving first novel that takes a realistic look at the criminal justice system.

This first-person narrative is an accomplished debut for lawyer Brandt, a former Chief Deputy Attorney General for Delaware. Lou Razzi, a tough Delaware cop is framed, convicted, dismissed from his job, and jailed in the early 1960sjust prior to the Miranda decision. Fifteen years pass; the frame is uncovered; and he returns home from Brazil to settle some scores, as if "the right to remain silent" didn't exist. Detailed, realistic, and with excellent character development and motivation, this is as good as the best in a recent crop of outstanding thrillers by former or current law enforcement officials, e.g., Bob Leuci's Captain Butterfly and Scott Turow's Presumed Innocent .
