Kit Shannon is a female lawyer in Los Angeles in the early 1900s and as such, already has a strike against her. Then she finds herself agreeing to represent someone she's not certain is innocent, and she could be risking her life to do so. If that's not enough problems, someone is suing her and her aunt becomes ill.

Still struggling with his disability, Ted Fox returns to the city. He can't seem to get over his worry that Kit only pities him—despite his strong feelings for her. Before he can sort everything out, he finds himself in a precarious position. When put to the test, will he succumb to blackmail and threats, or finally find what he has been searching for?

Angel of Mercy presents a likable and indomitable heroine that readers can identify with and admire. Secondary characters are well defined but not overpowering and the courtroom scenes would make Perry Mason smile. The good news is, it looks like there will be more books in the series!
