It's a routine fraud trial in Miami, until... A witness is murdered... And Jake Lassiter is the prime suspect.
The mystery leads Lassiter and his wisecracking delinquent nephew to an abandoned silver mine deep beneath the Aspen ski slopes. The evidence that can clear the lawyer -- or bury him -- is revealed in an explosive finale.
"Twice as good as Turow and Grisham, and four times the fun." - Armchair Detective
