The Murder List

Now available in mass market paperback

Who is on THE MURDER LIST?

Law student Rachel North will tell you, without hesitation, what she knows to be true. She’s smart, she’s a hard worker, she does the right things. She’s successfully married to a faithful and devoted husband, a lion of Boston’s defense bar. She’s a rising-star intern in the prosecutor’s office. Problem is—she’s wrong. And if she takes one false step in this cat-and-mouse game, the battle for justice will become a battle for survival.

(Who is the woman on the cover? She will change everyone’s lives.)
