In the high-stakes world of Washington politics, hotshot lawyer Andrew Martin is being put to the test. When long-time friend Senator William Jasper calls, it's with explosive news-and a favor to ask. A sex tryst at Martin's beach house in Anguilla has gone awry and former model Vanessa Boyd is dead. Just how far will Martin go to protect the chief justice nomination he's built his entire career on? Staggered by the sudden death of her twin sister, archeologist Allison Boyd drops everything to fly home to her grieving family. But when she realizes that the pieces to the puzzle simply won't add up, she is determined to discover the truth behind her sister's death. Launching an investigation that will unveil a treasonous plot backed by foreign interests and enabled by blackmail, Allison finds herself up against something bigger and more lethal than she could have ever imagined. With Martin's star associate Paul Maltoni at her side, she uncovers a complex, interconnected web of lies that will expose some of Washington's most influential power players. And she will not rest until she sees them ruined. From the best-selling author of the Craig Page series, The Washington Lawyer is a penetrating glimpse into Capitol Hill's seedy underbelly. High-powered DC lawyer Allan Topol impresses again with this escapade into the intricate underpinnings of Washington's elite, drawing you into a net of questionable morals, deadly intrigues, and treachery from which there is no escape.

Pity the poor political novelist. After all the real-world skullduggery of recent decades 'Nixon's Watergate, Clinton's intern - how can fiction possibly compete with reality? Washington lawyer Allan Topol can't beat those odds, but in 'The Washington Lawyer' he's given us a lively insider's portrait of political mischief featuring a senator who is a traitor and perhaps a murderer, a nominee for chief justice of the United States who is desperately trying to cover up his own misdeeds and a gang of Chinese spies eager to bribe or, if necessary, kill our politicians to obtain the Pentagon's innermost secrets entertaining and at times has the ring of truth. - Patrick Anderson, Washington Post
