Alexei Lideika has a new identity—part of his witness protection—but now he’s ready to tell his story.

On the same day he fails the bar exam, he learns that his father is a sleeper spy for Russian operatives. He becomes entangled in the FBI’s plot to take down a dangerous man known as “The Rook.” And Celia, the love of his life, has seemingly fallen for another man—one of the Russian operatives. Amid arson and kidnapping and torture, everyone and everything Alexei cares about is in danger. He must play an intricate game of deception between the Rook and the FBI.

This is the first novel in the Law Thrillers series that teaches and reinforces key legal principles needed to pass the bar exam. The focus is on fundamental issues tested on the Multistate Bar Exam (MBE) and the Multistate Essay Exam (MEE), so the series will help students taking the bar exam in every state except Louisiana.

The legal principles are in italics and footnotes so as not to hinder enjoyment of the story for anyone who enjoys legal thrillers.
