Michael Brock is billing the hours, making the money, rushing relentlessly to the top of Drake & Sweeney, a giant D.C. law firm. One step away from partnership, Michael has it all. Then, in an instant, it all comes undone: A homeless man takes nine lawyers hostage in the firm s plush offices. When it s all over, the man s blood is splattered on Michael s face and suddenly Michael is willing to do the unthinkable. Rediscovering a conscience he lost long ago, Michael is leaving the big time for the streets where his attacker once lived and where society s powerless need an advocate for justice. But there s one break Michael can t make from a secret that has floated up from the depths of Drake & Sweeney, from a confidential file that is now in Michael s hands, and from a conspiracy that has already taken lives. Now Michael s former partners are about to become his bitter enemies. Because to them, Michael Brock is the most dangerous man on the streets."
