Indefensible comes a "complex and intelligent" (John Lescroart,
New York Times bestselling author) legal mystery and courtroom drama that inhabits the blurry boundary between guilt and innocence when a murder sends one family's life into a tailspin. Someone close to Nick Davis is murdered. Investigators see it as either a case of mistaken identity or the work of a jealous fiance. As a federal prosecutor, Nick tries shepherding the case to a swift conclusion, but it keeps slipping away. Meanwhile, Nick's relationship with his wife, Tina, hangs by the thinnest of threads. She is also a lawyer, working to vindicate a young man convicted of killing a child eight years previously. When old DNA evidence is uncovered in the murder case, its analysis hurls Nick's universe into upheaval--his most basic assumptions about his life, the law, and the people he loves most are thrown into question. "Compelling" with "language that sings," Lee Goodman's latest novel is a truly "outstanding" page-turner (William Kent Krueger,
New York Times bestselling author).
