Peter Hale is a young attorney with a lot to prove. Crossing his father, one of Portland's most powerful lawyers, was a costly mistake. Now, cut loose from his job and his inheritance, Peter's landed in the public defender's office of a small Oregon town - and in the middle of a high-profile case that could make or break his career. His mentally handicapped client, accused of the savage murder of a college coed, faces the death penalty. And Peter faces a choice - between the pursuit of headlines and the pursuit of truth, between the compulsion to save himself and the courage to save his client - in a devastating trial by fire.

Praise for The Burning Man and Phillip Margolin:
"Margolin specializes in characters who make your skin crawl."
"Margolin's perfectly crafted plot provides plenty of chills"
"[Margolin] weaves disparate subplots and surprise twists into a terrific whodunit."
--San Francisco Chronicle
"Intricate plotting and warp-speed suspense. The man knows how to write a legal thriller."
Chad Wheeler, an arrogant, self-centered associate in a large Portland, Oregon law firm, disobeys the orders of his father--a senior partner in the same firm--and commits a terrible blunder in a multi-million dollar law suit. Fired from his big city job, and disinherited from his father's will, he is sent in disgrace to work as a public defender in a small Oregon town, where he represents a retarded man who is facing the death penalty for the brutal murder of a college co-ed.
With the same fast-paced plotting that drove his last two novels onto the bestseller lists, and full of twists and surprises, this is a complex legal thriller that is sure to be Margolin's biggest bestseller yet.
