Then he became a lawyer. Turns out the two jobs aren't all that different. . . He vowed never to set foot in a courtroom again after a case gone disastrously wrong. But today Eddie doesn't have a choice. Because this time, it's personal. The head of the Russian mob in New York City, on trial for murder, has kidnapped Eddie's beloved ten-year-old daughter. Now Eddie has exactly forty-eight hours to draw upon his razor-sharp instincts and use every con, bluff, grift, and trick in the book to defend an impossible trial and save his daughter -- or die trying.
