Attorney Paul Madriani reluctantly takes on the case of Judge Armando "The Coconut" Acosta, an old enemy accused of soliciting prostitution in a police sting operation and of the murder of the policewoman set to testify against him

Blackwell North Amer
Steve Martini's explosive new thriller finds attorney Paul Madriani the unlikely defense lawyer for an old nemesis. Judge Armando "the Coconut" Acosta is arrested on charges of soliciting prostitution in a sting operation for "johns," and few, including Paul Madriani, who has a long history of enmity with the judge, are sympathetic. Abandoned by his friends on the Capital County bench, Acosta is forced, in an ironic twist, to ask Paul to save his career from impending doom. Paul initially rejects Acosta's pleas, but when Acosta's original defense lawyer is forced off the case by a zealous district attorney looking for revenge, Paul is required to step forward and defend the judge.
