The Last Billable Hour


Author: Susan Wolfe
* Winner of the Edgar Award for Best First Mystery

Welcome to the Silicon Valley law firm of Tweedmore & Slyde, where multimillion-dollar deals are the order of the day, ambition runs high, and stabbing a colleague in the back could be taken all too literally.

T&S is a hot firm making a bid to be a major national player when Leo Slyde--the company's chief rainmaker, its king of the "billable hour"--is found stabbed to death in his corner office. It falls to T&S's brightest, most unjustifiably insecure young associate Howard Rickover to conduct a risky "inside job" for homicide detective Sarah Nelson. But can Howard flush out a wily murderer among lawyers who do not make it their practice to be caught unprepared--and still keep up with an associate's impossible workload?
