"Under Oath is the best of Lisa Scottoline mixed with the grittiest of Chuck Hogan and Dennis Lehane. Quite simply, one of the best courtroom thrillers I have ever read."
--Michael Palmer, New York Times bestselling author of Oath of Office
"If the jury needed any further atgument than her super debut in Under Fire, it will please the court and everybody else to place in evidence, and to read voracously, Under Oath, the second knockout from the new queen of the legal thriller, Margaret McLean."
-- William Martin, New York Times Bestselling Author of The Lost Constitution and The Lincoln Letter
"I love the way Margaret McLean writes. Her clear and speedy prose tells a convincing, fascinating and suspenseful tale. I read Under Oath on a trans-continental flight and the hours flew!"
--Mary Jane Clark, New York Times bestselling author of The Look of Love
Plot: The "code of silence" remains sacred in Charlestown, one of the most historic yet insular neighborhoods of Boston. Prosecutor Annie Fitzgerald faces a mountain of unsolved murder cases spanning decades. She must confront this age-old code in the sensational murder trial of a ruthless crime boss accused of killing an artist.
The trial explodes into a high-energy race to justice when a key witness is killed, jurors defy their instructions, and FBI cover-ups obscure the truth. Annie faces off against seasoned criminal defense attorney Buddy Clancy, who unleashes reasonable doubt with his penetrating cross-examinations.
Time is of the essence... will justice prevail? Former prosecutor Margaret McLean combines the best of John Grisham's legal thrillers and Dennis Lehane's Boston crime novels in Under Oath.
UNDER FIRE, McLean's legal thriller incurred record sales in bookstores and as an ebook nationwide upon release on June 21, 2011. It received outstanding reviews and media coverage.
The Plot: A Boston firefighter is shot and killed in the line of duty while rescuing Amina Diallo and her young son from their burning store. Amina, a Senegalese Muslim immigrant, is arrested for arson and murder, and will likely be convicted.
Attorneys Sarah Lynch and Buddy Clancy face a mountain of racial and religious prejudice in this impossible courtroom battle.
As they gain momentum, the lawyers slam headfirst into a firestorm of political corruption. A sinister force is working against them, attacking witnesses and destroying evidence.
A deadly pursuit of the truth becomes Amina's only chance in Margaret McLean's explosive legal thriller, Under Fire.
