Kit Shannon, a courageous female lawyer in early 1900s Los Angeles, faces her newest trial on the eve of her wedding to aviator Ted Fox. When Kit takes on the case of a mother whose child was killed in a tragic trolley accident, she prods a nest of conspirators among powerful railroad men and city politicians. It's soon clear that, unless she backs down, she may not survive to become a bride. Undeterred, Kit is determined to seek A HIGHER JUSTICE (3). With his usual flair for fast-paced plot and entertaining courtroom antics, James Scott Bell brings us the next installment in his Trials of Kit Shannon series. The story does suffer slightly from a few too many coincidences and the occasional author intrusion. (Sep., 304 pp., $12.99)
