Depraved Indifference by Joseph Teller (ARC)

Depraved Indifference by Joseph Teller

An Audi sports car, speeding on the wrong side of the road, forces an oncoming van off the road. The van bursts into flames, killing all nine occupants ...eight of them children.

Criminal defense attorney Harrison J. Walker, known simply as Jaywalker, is trying to keep his nose clean while serving a three-year suspension. But when a woman seduces him into representing the Audi Assassin, a man who also happens to be her husband, things get messy.

Struggling with the moral issues surrounding this case, Jaywalker tries to stay focused on his goal limiting the damage to his client by exposing the legal system s hypocrisy regarding drunk driving. But when he rounds a blind corner in the case, he collides with a truth that could turn his entire defense into disaster.

Definitely leaves me curious, though I suspect I would read it with another book in mind, wondering if the twists were the same. Certainly sets up some interesting ideas.

It's actually the third in the series. I stumbled on his first book and loved it!
