A devastating terrorist attack in the heart of Washington, DC, and the capture and arrest of the terrorist lead to a trial that threatens to expose the dark underbelly of America's national security. The Russian president is gravely injured and fixated on revenge, while a gay Russian dissident is arrested and put on trial in Judge Tom Brewer's courtroom. As Russia beats the drums of war and the United States struggles to contain the trial before it races out of control, secrets and lies, past and present, collide in his courtroom, before his bench.
With the world's attention fixed on Tom and this case, secrets from his past explode during the course of the trial, which place him at the very center of the case and make him the only man who can try to stop the world's slide into war.
Contains mature themes.

Joel Leslie is amazing
I've recently fallen head over heels (or ears?) for Joel Leslie's narration, and I couldn't stop listening to this. His skill with different characters and accents is amazing. While listening to this I actually couldn't believe he also voiced the Spencer Cohen books, so different did he sound.
As for the book, I read it last year, and while reading had the same reaction as I had while listening. It's a great mix between a romance and a political thriller, with a moving story of one man finally being able to embrace his identity. I really liked it, but it would have been even better if it had been a little shorter. Some of Tom's musings get a bit repetitive at times and in the end the repetitions lessened their impact on me. Still, I highly enjoyed this one and would love to listen to the rest of Tal Bauer's books - especially if read by Mr. Leslie.
