Moment of TruthBook - 2000
Upon discovering his wife's murdered body, Jack Newlin decides to frame himself for the murder, hiring an inexperienced attorney to help him.
When attorney Jack Newlin discovers his wife dead in their home, he's convinced he knows who killed her—and is equally determined to hide the truth. He decides to frame himself for murder, and to seal his fate he hires the most inexperienced lawyer he can find: a reluctant rookie by the name of Mary DiNunzio from the hot Philadelphia firm of Rosato & Associates. But hiring Mary may turn out to be his biggest mistake. She doubts Jack's confession, and her ethics and instincts tell her she can't defend a man who wants to convict himself. Smarter, gutsier, and more persistent than she has any right to be, Mary sets out to prove what really happened—because, as any lawyer knows, a case is never as simple as it seems. And nothing is ever certain until the final moment of truth.
The bestselling author of Mistaken Identity and Running from the Law serves up another fast-paced, law-based thriller about a man who, upon discovering his wife's murdered body, decides to frame himself for the murder in order to hide the truth about the killer, hiring an inexperienced attorney to help him.
