Criminal Intent (Paperback)
You can pick your friends, but you can't pick your family. And lately, Mike Daley's family has been keeping him very busy.
An ex-priest, ex-public defender, and ex-corporate lawyer, Daley and his former wife, Rosie Fernandez, now run their own San Francisco criminal defense firm.
Most of their cases are fairly small-time, which is why it would be surprising that the person accused of murdering movie director Richard (Big Dick) MacArthur is calling them. But things get personal when the accused is Rosie's own niece, Angelina.
And the family drama doesn't end there.
Rosie's brother, Tony, may be on the wrong end of a strong-arm graft proposal.
The son of one of the firm's lawyers has just been busted on a drug charge.
Mike is having a clandestine affair with a woman judge.
And Rosie herself has a dark secret that may make all of it seem irrelevant.
An intricate plot, immensely likeable characters, powerful suspense, and more than a touch of humor-these are Siegel's hallmarks. CRIMINAL INTENT will keep you turning pages until its final, surprising end.
CRIMINAL INTENT is book 3 in the NY Times and Amazon bestselling legal thriller series featuring Mike Daley & Rosie Fernandez.
