The New York Daily News says of The Good Fight, "Matera writes with passion about debts to old lovers and old causes." If San Francisco litigator Laura Di Palma can't find a way to honor those debts, she'll lose everything she's worked for and everyone she loves.
A week ago, Laura had it all. Then she awakened to find her significant other unable to walk or speak, even to say why he was crawling out of their apartment. Now he's missing from the hospital. He's out there somewhere homeless or dead, and she'll do anything to find him. But there couldn't be a worse time for her to ignore her work.
The top partner in her firm is making furious threats. He'll fire Laura if she doesn't drop her controversial new criminal case and start toadying to their corporate clients. But she can't abandon Danny Crosetti, her political activist friend. He's accused of shooting his closest comrade...who turned out to be an undercover FBI agent sent to entrap him. Laura was with Danny years ago when a military truck was ordered to drive through--and in Danny's case, over--protestors blocking its path. He lost his legs that day. Laura can't bear to watch him lose his freedom, too.
Fighting for her job, torn between her client and her lover, Laura is forced to reconcile the person she used to be with the lawyer she's become.
