June 2023 First Mystery Crime Club Pick

The thrilling debut novel from former director of the FBI and #1 New York Times bestseller James Comey, drawing on his thirty years in federal law enforcement—perfect for fans of John Grisham.

The trial of the century. One chance to crack the case. A million ways to lose.

Federal prosecutor Nora Carleton has spent years building a case against a powerful New York mobster. She finally has a star witness: an insider whose testimony will lock the defendant away for good.

But the courtroom can be an unpredictable place. While the killing of a disgraced former governor appears unconnected to the trial, the fallout from his death makes a guilty verdict hang in the balance.

Desperate to stop the mobster from walking free, Nora investigates the darker side of the city to understand how everything connects. The more she uncovers, the deeper the corruption runs.

There are dangerous people who will do anything to stop her from finding the truth. But Nora knows better than most that the truth is a fragile thing – especially in court.
