Pancho McMartin, Honolulu’s colorful, unpredictable and successful criminal defense attorney will soon take on a client charged with the most brutal, high profile murder in Hawaii’s history. Pancho’s client is a former mercenary, accused of the brutal murder of the man who was once Honolulu’s most sought-after investment counselor.
As the case unfolds and the lies are exposed, the evidence against Pancho’s client is overwhelming and Pancho, now desperate, must find a way to prove his client’s innocence. The trial isn’t going well and Pancho is forced to ask himself: is his client really innocent?”
Finally, Pancho realizes there is one card he might be able to play in this life and death courtroom drama. It would be the biggest gamble of his professional life. The problem is that if it backfires, not only could it destroy Pancho’s career, but also result in a guilty verdict that would send his client to prison for life.Tropical Lies is an edge-of-your-chair legal thriller of nerve-wracking suspense and surprise twists.
