About This Item

UK,8vo HB+dw/dj,1st edn.NMINT/NMINT.No owner inscrptn,and no price-clip to dw/dj.Glossy,crisp,colour photographic upper wrap; with negligible shelf-wear or creases - no nicks or tears present - and no bumped corners.Top+fore-edges both bright and clean; contents bright,tight and pristine.Unblemished,plain,purple paper-covered boards with bright,crisp,stamped silver gilt letters to spine/ backstrip and immaculate plain white endpapers.UK,8vo HB+dw/dj, 1st edn,3-440pp includes half-title+title pages,25 chapters and an epilogue. In the halls of justice,the only justice is in the halls.Diane and Lisa Pierman,prominent professional identical twin sisters,are barbarically assaulted by an arrogant gangster.Prosecutor Sal Milano,who harbours an unspoken desire for Diane,handles the case personally,fiercely determined to bring it to a swift end.But Sal underestimates the opposition: an aging criminal defence attorney with many more years of experience in cleverly manipulating the law to the advantage of his questionable clients.In a trial of extraordinary twists and turns,the attorney succeeds in denying the twins their retribution,leaving them and Sal in a state of shock at how the vaunted rules of law betrayed them.While Sal is able to walk away and lick his wounds,the sisters are not.Diane herself is an attorney,and uses her knowledge of the law to concoct a remarkable scheme in which they exact revenge on their attacker, in a way that seems to defy the law's ability to punish them.As a result and against all his instincts,Sal is drawn into a process that will not only slowly break his heart,but will also force him to confront his deepest passions for his profession.Torn between his duty to uphold the law and his deepening love for Diane,Sal is about to risk everything as,paradoxically,he attempts to restore his faith in the law by twisting it to his own ends.It is not easy to decide whom to cheer for in this story full of finely drawn characters, thrilling trials and keen insights into the true meaning of justice,but it is a tale you will think about long after the last page is turned. Author's third novel.
