Brought to you by Penguin.

The most dangerous person in the courtroom isn't the killer. . .

Revelle is a court interpreter and knows the power of words. She spends her days translating for other people; murderers, fraudsters and their victims. She speaks their words. Only she knows exactly what they're saying.

When she spots an injustice is about to take place, and a guilty man about to be labelled innocent, she has the power to twist an alibi to get the verdict she wants. The verdict she believes is correct. She's willing to risk it all.

But someone knows what she's done.

And they want justice.
