A CAREER CASE

Jamie Wagner is a young lawyer who is happy to be flying under the radar at a large firm. Its not that he isnt smart. He is. Its just that hard work, not to mention the whole legal thing, isnt exactly his passion. But then hes put on a case that turns his whole world upside down.

A FAMILY TORN

Sheryl Harrison is serving a thirty-year murder sentence for killing her husband, who she claims was abusive. The case is settled—there shouldnt be anything for Jamie to do—except now Sheryls fourteen-year-old daughter, Karen, is sick. She has a congenital heart defect and will die without a transplant. Sheryl is a matching donor—and is willing to die to save her daughter. But suicide, no matter the motive, is illegal. Now Jamie is in way over his head.

A TRIAL BY FIRE

With Sheryl on suicide watch, Jamies only shot at saving Karen is to reopen the murder case, prove Sheryls innocence, and get her freed so that she can pursue her own plan. And time is running out…
