– Another book we can recommend, this time about a 48 year old attorney, Ted Jaffe, at a conservative law firm. When he was a prosecutor, twelve years earlier, he convicted a man who killed the wealthy husband of a woman with whom he was having an affair. (All attorneys have sordid pasts and extensive sex lives – didn’t you know that?) It turns out that the man didn’t kill her husband and Jaffe is called upon to save the man from being executed for this crime. In so doing, he risks his job, his reputation, and his marriage. But who did kill the women’s husband, and why? We find out in the final chapter during a compelling cross-examination (Actually we find out in the second to last chapter).
