Penguin Putnam
When the angry white mob poured out of the bar on San Francisco's Geary Street and surrounded an innocent black man, Kevin Shea was the only one who tried to stop them. He failed, and now, thanks to a deceptive news photo taken during the melee, he is wanted for the murder himself-and the real culprits have threatened his life if he says a word.

As riots rage and politicians posture, Lieutenant Abe Glitsky finds himself under pressure to bring Shea in at all costs. And as respect for the law crumbles-even among those sworn to uphold it-true justice is the only thing that can prevent the death of another innocent man.

Don't judge Lescroart by this book. It's probably his worst one; others, like Betrayal or The Hearing are excellent. This one has too many characters and the plot is too Byzantine to follow. It's 95% politics and backstory on the characters, none of whom are admirable here, and only 5% mystery. These percentages should be reversed. His usual verisimilitude is missing, going past far-fetched all the way to preposterous. I can suspend disbelief for a good story, but not this far. I'm a big fan of Lescroart but if this were the first book of his I'd picked up, I would never have read a second.
