Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0451188071, Mass Market Paperback)

Lee Gruenfeld was a computer scientist before he began writing sharp, successful legal thrillers such as All Fall Down, and both sides of his brain are at work in The Expert. Next time you watch a so-called "expert witness" spouting scientific gospel on the stand, consider the dilemma faced by defense whiz Rebecca Verona, whose expert witness in the case of a computer executive charged with treason seems to be working for the other side. Even if you don't know a computer chip from a potato chip, you'll appreciate the intelligence and excitement of Gruenfeld's story.

Computer mogul James Perrein has been arrested on the charge of selling world-shaking encryption technology to the Chinese. For criminal attorney Rebecca Verona, it's an opportunity to advance her career, but it also means defending a man she doesn't trust. Perrein is her former lover, for whom she once left David Zuckerman, the prosecuting attorney who has just been assigned to the case. At the heart of Rebecca's defense strategy is expert witness Rado Terescu, who claims he can prove that the computer chip Perrein allegedly sold cannot possibly yet exist. Then Zuckerman and the prosecution drop their first bombshell: they have the actual chip. And it may be a major threat to America's security. The worlds of high-stakes law, international intrigue, and cutting-edge technology combine to create a novel of unrelenting suspense.… (more)
