Baker & Taylor
Despite the failure of their marriage, Mike Daley and Rosie Fernandez are partners in a successful San Francisco law firm, but now they face their most difficult case--racing against time to stop the execution of former mob lawyer Nathan Fineman, convicted of three killings in a Chinatown restaurant--a case complicated by the fact that Mike's late father had been one of the first cops on the scene.

Perseus Publishing
As husband and wife, Mike Daley and Rosie Fernandez couldn’t make it work. But as partners in one of San Francisco’s most tenacious law firms, Daley and Fernandez make one hell of a team.

Judgment Day finds the ex-spouses tackling their most difficult case yet. Called in at the last minute to try to stop the execution of Nathan Fineman, a former mob lawyer convicted of murdering three people in the back room of Chinatown’s notorious Golden Dragon Restaurant, Mike and Rosie must race the clock in a desperate attempt to prove their client’s innocence. With only ten days to go and a wealth of forensic evidence pointing overwhelmingly to Fineman’s guilt, their task seems impossible. Complicating matters, Mike must battle his own personal demons when the reputation of his dead father — a San Francisco cop who was one of the first officers at the scene the night of the murders — is called into question.

And as the plot hurtles toward its stunning denouement, judgment day is fast approaching not only for Nate Fineman, but for Mike’s father and the law firm of Daley and Fernandez as well.

Terrible. One of the worst "legal thrillers" I've ever read. His characters have no depth to them. this applies to the protagonist, his partner, brother, daughter, client, friends, witnesses etc - everyone.The story was woefully lacking in credibility. The main character is a defense lawyer and it seems that the police - and all reluctant witnesses - will do his faithful bidding for him. The climactic courtroom scene is a farce. The prosecutor and the judge both have to be incompetent for it to play out the way it did.
