THE KILLER’S CLUB
Audrey Spencer has landed her dream job as a Deputy District Attorney and is settling into the career change when the daughter of District Attorney Gregory Pope is found stabbed to death in a nearby park.
Nobody could have been more surprised than Audrey when Pope assigns her to handle the case. Uncertain about Pope’s motivation and assuming he hopes to influence how the case proceeds, Audrey jumps in with both feet to the most high-profile case of her career.
It isn’t long before Audrey realizes this case comes with more obstacles than she initially realized. The list of potential suspects is pages long. She must deal with office politics, something she hates. Her boss Gregory Pope–good intentions notwithstanding–is doing more harm than good.
Armed with only her wits, experience, and determination to find justice, Audrey will see this through to the end, whatever the cost.
Just when she thinks she has the case figured out, the murderer strikes again, throwing cold water on her theory.
Criminal defense attorney Mitch Turner is tempted to turn down the most recent case that walks through his door because the prospective client, Candy Carlisle, sends out all the wrong vibes. He decides to take it, though, because he is concerned about Candy’s children. The case has issues right from the beginning, and so does Candy.
Mitch is not the first attorney on the case. The former attorney was afraid of Candy, and Mitch starts to believe those fears are justified.
Candy also swears she didn’t kill her husband while their children slept upstairs, but the physical evidence says otherwise. The further Mitch digs, the more he dislikes his client, but he also becomes increasingly convinced Candy is innocent. Proving it is going to be tough. Is Mitch up for the task? Can he find the actual perpetrator to save Candy’s children from having to see their mother go to prison? Can he put his feelings about Candy to the side in his search for justice?
