Circle of LiesBook - 2012
Defending a childhood friend who has been accused of murdering a law partner, former NYPD detective-turned-lawyer John Delaney is approached by a mysterious woman who reveals links between the case and a corrupt pharmaceutical company.
Circle of Lies is a hot new thriller by Douglas Alan featuring John Delaney, an ex-NYPD detective turned lawyer, and his lovely wife, Katherine Adams, a tough but sexy Atlanta lawyer who gives as good as she gets.
Delaney is asked to defend Ted Jordan, a childhood friend who has been arrested for the torture and murder of his law partner. Jordan adamantly maintains his innocence but the police have traced his fingerprints to the dead man's house and a half-million dollars to his bank account. On his way to interview Jordan at the jail, Delaney is approached by a mysterious woman who identifies herself as Ted's friend. She offers to post his bond and warns Delaney to be careful if anyone from the Tissinger Corporation contacts him in connection with the case.
Ted insists he has been set up by Tissinger because he accidentally stumbled onto data showing they deliberately concealed information about suicides in a test group for their latest depression medication.
As Delaney and Adams start to dig, they are confronted by an NSA agent who tries to warn them off. When a second dead body is found in Jordan's condominium and Jordan disappears, they are left with more questions than answers. But Delaney isn't someone who takes no for an answer, and he and Katherine will stop at nothing to find the truth.
