Description

Barbara Parker introduces one of the
most unforgettable female characters in suspense fiction: high-profile Miami
defense attorney C. J. Dunn.


C J. Dunn is an expert at spinning her
clients' image in the media. She is the perfect lawyer to deflect police
interest in Rick Slater, head of security for Bob Shelby, a US congressman from
Miami. Slater was seen at a South Beach party with the recently vanished Alana
Martin, and in election season, any hint of scandal could doom the congressman's
chances. C. J. has reasons not to like Slater's boss, but, if she succeeds,
friends of the congressman have assured her that they can arrange a spot for
her as a legal commentator on a national media outlet. For a woman living
alone, with few close friends, a celebrity life does have its appeal.


But as the media close in, hounding
everyone connected to the case, C. J. finds connections she had never
anticipated. When Alana Martin is found dead and C. J.'s investigator
implicates Rick Slater, C. J. is slammed between the media and the need to
defend a client she no longer trusts. Then he delivers a bombshell: C. J.'s
daughter, Traci Willis, the child she gave up for adoption seventeen years before,
was a friend of Alana Martin's. Traci has information that could save Rick
Slater but at the same time could reveal a devastating secret that would put
C. J.'s career—and even her life—on the line.
