Told in real time, The Deposition continues the story of Mike Connolly, the-down-and-out attorney you came to know in Joe Hilley's previous novels, Sober Justice, Double Take, and Electric Beach. This time, Mike's story is told through the eyes of his friends and his enemies. The woman he rescued from a life of prostitution. She has a lot to say, if she can stay alive long enough to say it. The lawyer who wants to make certain she never does. And the priest who won't talk even if it means losing his life. They're locked in a high-stakes race to see who lives to tell the dark secrets of men in powerful places, and who dies to keep them quiet.
