The only problem is the Prosecuting Atorney has managed to survive in tact too, and is still gunning for Sabich (his former boss is gone, being the only one who was punished for the screw ups in the first book). So when Sabich behaves weirdly after his wife dies, Molto gets after him.
Daft premiss, daft book. So far beyond what's likely to have happened in real life, that I found myself thinking "Come on, really?" If you can put the innate daftness of the book behind you though, you might like it.
