Operating solo in the legal world after leaving a prestigious firm, Boston lawyer Scott Finn accepts a dangerous assignment involving an attack on a policewoman and an El Salvadoran immigrant with ties to one of South America's most notorious gangs.

Blackwell North Amer
No longer a pawn at one of Boston's most prestigious law firms, Scott Finn has to the tough Charlestown streets of his youth. There, as a sole practitioner, he ekes out a living taking on any legal work he can get: from messy divorces to criminal defense. But nothing has prepared him for a case as twisted as this.
Fifteen years ago, a female undercover cop was assaulted in a Roxsbury alley. Bludgeoned with a machete and shot with her own revolver, she survived the attack and ID'd Vincente Salazar, an illegal immigrant and former doctor from El Salvador, as her assailant. Fingerprints on the gun confirmed her testimony, and Salazar was sentenced to a half-century behind bars - forgotten and forsaken by everyone but his grieving family.
Now Salazar wants a new trial, and Finn is the only man willing to fight to find the truth. The deeper Finn digs, though, the more questions there are to answer. Why would so many of Boston's finest risk their careers and even their lives to lie about this crime? Allying himself again with maverick detective Tom Kozlowski and delving into the past, Finn peels back layers of corruption and secrets that stretch from Central America to Boston's suburbs. Before Finn and Kozlowski know it, it will be their lives that hang in the balance as the search for the thin line between guilt and Innocence.

With life as a pawn in a prestigious Boston law firm behind him, Scott Finn has set course through the more colorful back alleys and bedrooms of the legal world as a solo practitioner who dabbles in civil litigation, divorce law, and criminal defense. But his new environment and his nose for justice and fair play land him a case that could end up taking his life. A policewoman is left for dead in an alley, but survives and points the finger at an El Salvadoran immigrant with ties to one of South America's most dangerous and notorious gangs. There's just one problem: the evidence suggests the wrong man's been fingered. Finn, along with the maverick detective and stubborn ally Tom Kozlowski, must now navigate through this explosive case to save an innocent man's life and to learn why decorated officers might be willing to risk their careers and even their lives by lying about the crime. But with time running out, it is Finn and Kozlowski whose lives hang in the balance as they search for the thin line between guilt and innocence.

A fairly good crime novel, typical of David Hosp's work, but not as good as "Among Thieves" or "Next of Kin" which he wrote later. The plot is mainline crime fiction fare and it moves along quite well, with the expected level of mayhem but the main characters remain a bit superficial. It appears that Hosp began to hit his stride in his later books.
