2006 Trade Paperback. 452 pp. A Christian Science Monitor Best Book of the Year Winner of the Philadelphia Athenaeum Literary Award. In the Shadow of the Law is the story of Morgan Siler, a powerful Washington, D.C., law firm that has transformed itself from a traditional practice serving those most in need into a shrewd giant serving the interests of the wealthy. Through the intertwined stories of a pro bono murder case and a class action lawsuit brought against a large chemical company, we meet the fascinating, engaging, and conflicted characters that make up this world: Mark Clayton, the rookie; Walker Eliot, the prodigy; Katja Phillips, the idealist; and Harold Fineman, the brilliant and burned-out partner, leader of the chemical company's defense team. With a thorny and breathtakingly paced narrative, In the Shadow of the Law marks the arrival of a writer who stakes a firm claim to the literary territory of Scott Turow
