Promises Town

(2002)
A novel by

 
A federal prosecutor, the nemesis of Washington elite, is murdered at a posh Bayou City hotel. His wife is found with the gun at the scene and her motive is obvious -- he did her wrong and she caught him in the act. The wife is arrested quickly. Perhaps too quickly, Assistant District Attorney Virginia Rodriguez soon realizes, but a dismissal isn't that simple. Powerful people want a conviction and more than Virginia's career is on the line -- calculating killers have added her name to their list. Virginia is smart and sassy, and she can hold her own against Leo Zachmann, the high-profile defense attorney who has taken up the wife's cause. But can she deliver Texas justice in a case where the truth is much more elusive than the evidence? Promises Town delivers a rich blend of memorable characters, a fascinating view of the two-sided search for truth in criminal cases, an intriguing mystery, wry humor, and Virginia Rodriguez, a woman who has it all -- a killer of a job, a child and a dog to feed, a house to keep, promises to remember, and no Prince Charming in view.
