Brilliant young defence attorney Nash suffers a crisis of conscience when he realizes many of the murderers and rapists he has defended were guilty of their crimes. Now defending a murder case, Nash falls into an ethical trap; he's in love with his client's wife but can't be sure of their alibis.
I like this book because it shows the true job of the Defense Attorney. Imagine defending criminals day in and day out to the point that you are so jaded that when the real thing comes along, that is, an innocent man, you almost miss it. And then the job gets really tough because this time you MUST keep him from going to jail. But then again, what if that perfect case starts to make you wonder if it is what is? Is David Nash, the defense attorney known as the "Ice Man" who is a master at manipulating a jury, being manipulated himself?
