Lawyer Kate Lange is back with another case that will test her courtroom skills, judgment and nerves. The suspense is intense, the action shocking and the plot intriguing. The insidious villain destroys a life, a reputation and a family, all as part of a chilling plan.
Kate’s law firm in Nova Scotia is already going through some rough times when senior partner Randall Barrett is accused of murdering his ex-wife. Barrett is without funds, beaten both mentally and physically, and clueless as to why this is happening. Kate, who has no criminal law experience, is coached by Eddie, an alcoholic, disbarred attorney, as she reluctantly provides Barrett’s defense. Things are further complicated by Kate’s attraction to Barrett and the fact that the lead detective is Kate’s ex-fiancé, who has clashed with Barrett in the past. (MIRA, Jan., 512 pp., $7.99)
