Somewhere in the once-placid streets of San Francisco, a young man is on the run, charged by the media with a crime he didn't commit, hounded by demagogues, hunted by a desperate police department. One cop knows that Kevin Shea is innocent of a brutal racial murder. An ambitious politician will use Shea for her own ends. And a down-and-out lawyer is all that stands between Kevin Shea and an even more atrocious crime. For when there's no law left, justice is the only hope.

The story starts with a senseless carjacking/murder by a black gang banger. Let go by the DA for lack of evidence results in a mob lynching of a black lawyer and the city of San Francisco explodes into a race riot. The rioters leaded by an ambitious black man finds a white guy Kevin Shea (wrong place, wrong time) responsible for the lynching and the ambitious CA Senator and her appointed DA take measures to indict him.
A disenchanted lawyer decides to help him through the legal troubles and does so withe help of Abe Glitski, the lieutenant in SF homicide. Though the book was entertaining, it had lots of legal holes, the beginning was too long and the end was just mentioned in 2 paragraphs.
I'd really really really like to know what John Lescroart was thinking when he chose this ending for his novel. This ending was almost as bad as the last episode of the Sopranos!!! A very good book ruined by an unfulfilling conclusion.
Against this violent background John Lescroart unleashes a cast of unforgetable characters.
Kevin Shea - the good Samaritan who tries to stop the lynching and is made to look like evil incarnate.
Loretta Wager - the over ambitious US senator looking for a quick ride to re-election and beyond.
Abe Glitski - a man battling his own demons and a political tidal wave threatening to swamp.
Wes Farell - a disenchanted lawyer trying to drink himself to death and fotget the law.
It is all here and more in another winner.
