A LAW STUDENT UNCOVERS DEADLY POLITICAL CORRUPTION.
Nicole Palmer is coming off a nasty divorce and struggling to pay the bills. The odds of being able to handle law school while working full-time and raising three children seemed impossible, but she’s doing it: clerking for Judge Theresa Banks during the day and attending classes at night.
But Nicole’s world is violently upended when Judge Banks is murdered and circumstances surrounding her death raise questions about her integrity. Was the judge taking bribes from a shadowy land development corporation?
Determined to preserve Judge Banks’ honor, Nicole uncovers corruption that runs from the courthouse to the governor’s mansion—a discovery that sends her on the run from a man from Miami who specializes in shutting down scandals at any cost.
