The Baxter Trust

(1988)
(The first book in the Steve Winslow Mystery series)
A novel by

 
 
Sexy young Sheila Benton loses a multi-million dollar trust if she's involved in any scandal, so it probably would have been wiser not to do drugs, run around with a married man, and find a dead blackmailer on her kitchen floor. Defending her from a murder charge is a tough first case for attorney Steve Winslow, particularly since her trustee won't pay him, and he can't afford to quit his day job, driving a cab.

" ...smart, agreeable mystery...The likable Winslow proves a clever, thorough investigator and an entertaining trial lawyer. Hailey brings his plot threads together with finesse." - Publishers Weekly

"Hailey has done a fine job of detailing a murder mystery that contains some of the best courtroom dialogue put down in a very long time. His scenes out of court are good, but those taking place in court are superb." - Phil Thomas, Associated Press

"Truly outrageous legal high jinks overlaying an original plot concept - plus, Winslow is fun to be around." - Kirkus Reviews

"A winning tale of intrigue with a smash ending." - United Press International
