Sworn to Defend

(The fifth book in the Cass Jameson series)
A novel by

Brooklyn criminal lawyer Cass Jameson -- who has few illusions left -- finally has an innocent client. When she wins Keith Jernigan's case, she feels she's on the side of the angels. But Keith himself is no angel -- as Cass discovers when she realizes he did something far worse than she ever imagined. He stalked his former girlfriend and disfigured her for life when he threw acid in her face. Now Cass receives information indicating that Keith blames Tobie for the time he spent in jail on trumped-up charges. This time Tobie could lose more than her face -- and Cass is the one who freed him to prey on the girl. While Cass searches for Tobie to warn her about Keith, her divorce client Nellis Cartwright is accused of theft by her extremely angry ex-husband. Then Nellis dies from a bullet meant for Cass. Now Cass must become more than a lawyer, more than a detective, if she wants to stay alive. She must stalk the killer the way Keith stalked his quarry. She must investigate the husband of her dead client -- and the man she had sworn to defend.
