Tom McInnes, a maverick young attorney, leaves his prestigious law firm and returns to his small Alabama hometown to probe the murder of his younger brother and uncovers more than he ever wanted to know about dirty dealings in Cooper's Bend

Blackwell North Amer
It's been six months since Tom McInnes opted out of the billable-hours marathon at a tony Mobile, Alabama, law firm. His private practice isn't exactly flourishing, but his spirits are - at least compared with how they fared when he was under the thumb of Higgins & Thompson's senior partners. Then Tom's peaceful, if unprofitable, semi-retirement is shattered by a phone call summoning him home after his younger ne'er-do-well brother, Hall, has been murdered.
Tom's return to Cooper's Bend puts him too close for comfort to his bullying father, who's too used to running the mill and therefore half the town. In addition, Tom is soon at odds with the town toughs and local law enforcement. No one seems as dedicated as Tom to finding Hall's murderer. His probe puts him harrowingly close to people who would readily kill him, and before long, he's connected two dots too many, and put himself in even greater jeopardy.
