Legal Thriller at promo Kindle price of EUR 1,60.

Suppose the unimaginable: What if your child were killed in a hit-and-run? And the one person who knew the driver's identity - his lawyer - couldn't tell you his name because of a legal technicality?

Silent Counsel is the story of just such a nightmare.

After Stacy Altman's six-year-old son is run down in front of their house, with no witnesses to the tragic accident, she learns that the driver has hired attorney Scott Heller to negotiate a plea arrangement with the prosecutor. But he's instructed Scott not to reveal his name until a satisfactory agreement is in place. The prosecutor refuses to make a deal, and the court rebuffs Stacy's efforts to force Scott to tell her - or even the authorities - who his client is, holding that the information is protected by the attorney-client privilege.

Since the court won't do anything to help Stacy track down her son's killer, she takes matters into her own hands. And she's determined to make Scott talk - at any cost...

---------------------------------------------------

Upon its hardcover release in the US, Silent Counsel appeared for four consecutive weeks on Amazon's list of Bestselling Legal Thrillers behind only two other titles: John Grisham's THE APPEAL and Harper Lee's TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD.

"Ken Isaacson is an exciting new voice in crime fiction, and SILENT COUNSEL is his stunning debut - a legal thriller with a fascinating twist that will keep you turning pages to the unpredictable conclusion."
- Linda Fairstein, New York Times bestselling author and former prosecutor

"Ken Isaacson scares us with the ultimate ethical nightmare: what if you endanger your family just by doing your job? SILENT COUNSEL is a smashing debut, with everything you could want in a legal thriller."
- Tess Gerritsen, author of THE MEPHISTO CLUB
