Can murder ever be justified?

When a prominent judge is found stabbed to death on Valentine's weekend in what appears to be a crime of passion, homicide detective Maggie Novak knows she has her work cut out for her.

Bobby Russell is everybody's favorite judge, and at first Maggie is hard-pressed to find anyone with anything bad to say about him, let alone someone harboring a hatred so deep that they will kill him over it. But as she peels back the layers of his life, and the eyewitness to his murder goes missing, Maggie is faced with the very real prospect that beneath the judge's perfect surface deadly undercurrents lurk.

To uncover the truth, Maggie must first expose the judge's darkest secret, one that reaches deep inside his private life and into the death of his daughter.

A child's life hangs in the balance and a coldblooded killer is at large. Will the scales of justice tip in Maggie's favor in time for her to save the day?

The next book in the series HER ONLY REGRET is now available on pre-order!
