The Next David Sloane Adventure
Acclaimed attorney David Sloane is about to rack up another victory: a medical malpractice verdict against an established Seattle pediatrician for the unexpected death of a young boy. But something about the case has bothered Sloane from the start, even before a disheveled toy designer confronts Sloane on the way to the verdict to claim responsibility not only for the child's death but also for the death of a second child. Entering the multi-billion dollar, cutthroat world of toy manufacturing to find justice for two devastated families, Sloane must dodge a vicious killer, exonerate the doctor he has proven guilty, and overcome the loss of everything he loves-as well as his own burning desire for revenge.
