About The Confession

SHELDON SIEGEL, AUTHOR OF SPECIAL CIRCUMSTANCES, INCRIMINATING EVIDENCE, CRIMINAL INTENT and FINAL VERDICT, RETURNS WITH A DRAMATIC NEW STORY OF OLD WOUNDS AND NEW MURDER.

They needed a confession--but they never expected what they got. THE CONFESSION--the sizzling new legal thriller from the bestselling author of FINAL VERDICT.

Mike Daley hasn't gone to confession much since he left the priesthood twenty years ago to become a lawyer, but that doesn't stop his old friend and seminary classmate, Father Ramon Aguirre, from trying to get him there. "It wouldn't kill you to go to church once in awhile," he tells Mike. But it does kill someone.

For several months, a ruinous sexual harassment suit has been building against the San Francisco Catholic Archdiocese, and when the plaintiff's lawyer is found dead, an apparent suicide, an almost audible sigh of relief is heard in certain quarters. But that is before the police find evidence of murder. Even worse--the evidence points to Father Aguirre.

Mike and his ex-wife law partner, Rosie Fernandez, jump in to take the priest's case, but what started out as difficult soon appears impossible as forensics, witnesses, and secrets from Father Aguirre's past all incriminate their client. Soon, their wits are the only things keeping the priest from a life sentnece or worse, and wits simply may not be enough--unless they can conjure up a miracle of their own.

Of Siegel's most recent book, Final Verdict, Publisher's Weekly said, "The verdict is clear; another win for Siegel." And so it is again.
