Book DescriptionWelcome to the Silicon Valley law firm of Tweedmore & Slyde, where multimillion-dollar deals are the order of the day, ambition runs high, and stabbing a colleague in the back could be taken all too literally., , , , T&S is a hot firm making a bid to be a major national player when Leo Slyde--the company's chief rainmaker, its king of the "billable hour"--is found stabbed to death in his corner office. It falls to T&S's brightest, most unjustifiably insecure young associate Howard Rickover to conduct a risky "inside job" for homicide detective Sarah Nelson. But can Howard flush out a wily murderer among lawyers who do not make it their practice to be caught unprepared--and still keep up with an associate's impossible workload?
Editorial ReviewEdgar Award Winner "A funny, chilling view of big-time law." The New York Times Book Review "Susan Wolfe if at her best depicting - and spoofing - the glitzy law firm scene. A lawyer herself, she serves her damages with skill and obvious glee." The New York Times Book Review "A world of captivating corruption . . .With a delicate blend of malice, suspense and sharp psychology, Wolfe winds up her story with a scene that explodes a number of myths." San Francisco Chronicle "Absolutely first class. Susan Wolfe has succeeded in bringing the reader into the profit-obsessed world of big-time corporate law without once talking down. The Last Billable Hour is a brilliant debut by a first-class writer." Collin Wilcox, author of The Pariah and Night Games "The ultimate insider's look at the intrigues and infighting by which California's most hyperkinetic lawyers stay sharp in between multi million-dollar deals." Mystery News "A swift, complex plot, an unlikely romance and an intriguing glimpse at power politics among yuppie attorneys." St. Louis Post-Dispatch "Fast-paced . . . humorous. This twists of plot and details of practice are drawn with accuracy and wit. The Last Billable Hour is also a moral tale, a thoughtful and colorful commentary on the legal profession." California Lawyer "This diverting tale of legal skullduggery throws a scintillating if scandalous light on the highly charged, high-tech practice of law in Silicon Valley. Readers will look forward to the further adventures of attorney Howard Rickover and Inspector Sarah Nelson." Paul Brest Dean Emeritus of Stanford Law School "The writing is sharp, and the dialogue leaps from the page." Robert Barnard, author of Death in a Cold Climate and Death on the High C's "An absolutely authentic view of law firm politics, written by someone who's obviously been there. If Samuel Butler had been a corporate lawyer, this is the kind satire he'd have written. It will make readers laugh - and it will make lawyers blush." Lia Matera, author of Where Lawyers Fear To Tread
