Pub. Date:
Out celebrating a surprise win in court, Diane Pierman, a prominent Santa Monica attorney, and her sister are brutally attacked, leaving them badly traumatized. Their case falls to Deputy DA Sal Milano, a man of strong moral conviction, and a brilliant legal strategist. Though the sisters feel victory is certain, Sal begins to have doubts, as departmental politics and his own growing attraction to Diane begin to overwhelm him.Also, Sal underestimates his opposition, an aging criminal defense attorney with many more years of experience in cleverly manipulating the law to the advantage of his questionable clients. Through an extraordinary misstep of justice, the trial takes an awful turn, leaving Diane and Sal in a state of shock at how the vaunted rules of law betrayed them.While Sal is able to walk away from the case, the sisters are not, and it is they who concoct a remarkable scheme to exact a terrible revenge on their attacker. Their plan is as shockingly bold to police investigators as it is to Sal, and sets off an amazing chain reaction of legal duplicity that will leave no one unscathed.In this spellbinding novel of legal intrigue, Lee Gruenfeld delivers a galvanic and powerful tale that will resonate long after the last page is turned. Legal suspense has never been more compelling than in The Halls of Justice.

Santa Monica Deputy District Attorney Sal Milano is prosecuting the most explosive and high-profile case of his career. A small-time thug with ties to the mob has been charged with raping twin sisters, one of them the stunning Diane Pierman, a celebrated attorney and Sal's longtime court rival. The case is thrown out on a technicality, but a few days after the trial, one of the sisters hunts down and kills their assailant. Neither one will talk and both are charged with murder one. Now Sal is working the case of a lifetime, with the headlines and attention enough to satisfy even his ambitions. But everything depends on prosecuting and convicting two beautiful women who, in the eyes of the public, have righted a grievous wrong.
