Megan Davis is a smalltown civil litigator who dropped out of the world for a year after her husband died in a plane crash. Now back at her job and her house and her life, she finds herself faced with an old client, Jeremy Waldoch, who tells her a female former employee has brought a case against him.
It’s not Waldoch’s first defense. It’s not even the first defense Megan’s handled for him.
There was another one before. Another former employee. Another woman. Another set of claims arising out of sex, out of relationships gone bad, and – as Megan starts to discover when she digs into the new case – out of diamonds and deceit and murder.
But she’s not the only one looking at Jeremy Waldoch. Megan’s agreement to take the case sets her on a course that brings her to the attention of Jackson Hanley, a federal agent with an altogether different interest in Megan’s client.
Hanley’s task is to bring down the man who runs Laurentian Mines, a violently aggressive diamond mining company – a “glass house” – in a forgotten corner of South Africa. That man is Waldoch himself, and when Hanley can’t get Waldoch for what he’s done in Africa, he knows he’ll have to find a way to get him in the United States.
When all those worlds come together, Megan faces choices she doesn’t want and options she doesn’t like, ultimately finding herself in the middle of a battle between Hanley and Waldoch, truth and lies, and right and wrong – a battle that extends across continents and an ocean in a shattering series of events that may cost her everything she has.
Reinken is also the author of Judgment Day, described by Publishers Weekly as “a nearly seamless medical/legal chiller that’s one slick piece of work.”
The ebook edition of Glass House also includes the first chapter of Omicron, which is now available in ebook.
