99¢ SALE ALERT!
Attorney Thaddeus Murfee is skyjacked to Moscow. Next to him on the plane is Angelina Sosa, a brash 20-something with a degree in journalism from the esteemed University of Chicago.
Angelina decides to write a New York Times best-seller based on the skyjacking. She isn’t sure if it will be fiction or non-fiction, but she has her topic once the plane is diverted.
Thaddeus Murfee has just received front-page notoriety in the Tribune for his extraordinary courtroom defense of a World War II death camp survivor. Lately, Thaddeus' name is being mentioned at all the important lawyer gatherings as the lawyer to keep an eye on in the U.S. In fact, there is even talk about him running for public office, maybe even U.S. Senator.
Angelina tells Thaddeus she will base new best-seller on the skyjacking. Surely a Pulitzer Prize isn’t even out of reach. Thaddeus declines all interviews with Angelina and the struggle begins.
What follows is an incredible legal thriller in Moscow, where Thaddeus and Angelina are the unwilling guests of the Russian President.
In retrospect, I liked this book. It was different from the previous seven and in order to get this one in my “head” I needed to divorce myself from the ones preceding it. Maybe I misperceived, but I got the impression that the author wanted to put something different out there for us “Thaddeus” lovers. If that what was in his mind, he succeeded. Thaddeus came through in the end, as he always does. Pure poetic justice! – RA Rowland, FIVE STAR REVIEW
