Ipswich, MA (PRWEB) September 17, 2009
Oceanview Publishing announces the forthcoming release of Frame Up by John Dobbyn. Frame Up will be available wherever fine books are sold on March 8, 2010.
An edge-of-your-seat thriller, Frame Up (ISBN: 978‐1‐933515‐63-2, Legal Thriller, Hardcover, $25.95) features protagonist Michael Knight, a young attorney who's going places--dangerous places.
After graduating from Harvard Law with his closest friend, John McKedrick, Michael Knight practices with the U.S. Attorney's office and with a prestigious trial firm in Boston, then Michael and his mentor, the legendary trial attorney Lex Devlin, form Devlin & Knight to do criminal defense work, while John becomes sole associate of a notorious mob lawyer.
Michael never lost hope that John McKedrick would escape to "cleaner pastures"--until John is murdered in a car bombing bearing the signature of his questionable clientele. How could two friends who were so close have taken such wildly divergent paths?
In the wake of McKedrick's murder, three men who took their own deviating paths will meet for the first time in forty years. Matt Ryan, a priest; Dominic Santangelo, a mafia don; and Lex Devlin put the past aside to focus on a present concern: Dominic's son has been charged with John McKedrick's murder.
At Lex's urging, Michael Knight reluctantly agrees to represent the alleged bomber. In building a defense and investigating John's murder, Michael is drawn into a high-stakes art fraud that leads him from the seediest parts of Boston to the sophisticated Amsterdam inner sanctum of international crime.
As he races to penetrate the dangerous world of priceless art and worthless criminals, Michael Knight learns that the ruthless players in this game will do anything to make sure his work is left unfinished.
