A murder on Cape Cod. A rape in Palm Beach. All they have in common is the presence of one of America's most beloved and influential families. But nobody is asking questions. Not the police. Not the prosecutors. And certainly not George Becket, a young lawyer in the Cape & Islands district attorney's office. George has always lived at the edge of power. He wasn't born to privilege, but he understands how it works and has benefitted from it in ways he doesn't like to admit. Now, an investigation brings him deep inside the world of the truly wealthy -- and shows him what a perilous place it is.

This book started well and I found it quite engrossing but it was too long and repetitive and could have done with a good editor.

What a confusing book! Hope that in reality all that is connected with the activities of lawyers, not so confusing. In the book there are good sarcastic, humorous phrases - in the mouth of the protagonist.

A beautifully written tale that addresses moral questions that all individuals face. Compelling more from the perspective of characters than plot twists.

A real time waster. No surprises which I was hoping for after plodding through the book. You needed a "dance card" to keep track of the characters and who was where. In the end I didn't really care!
