An Innocent Client
This is the kind of crime the tabloids love...
This is the kind of case most lawyers dream of...
This is the kind of trial that destroys more lives than it saves...
this is the kind of “terrific debut novel”( Sheldon Siegel, New York TimesBestSelling Author of Judgment Day) that reinvents the legal thriller.
A preacher is stabbed to death in a Tennessee motel. The suspect is a waitress at a strip club. Defense attorney Joe Dillard’s too burnt out to defend anyone he knows in his heart is guilty. Then he meets the vulnerable Angel—the accused, incriminated by circumstantial evidence. Dillard’s sure she’s not capable of killing anyone. What Dillard doesn’t count on are the others drawn into the storm of the stunning crime—from the vindictive detective to the victim’s avenging son to Dillard’s own deeply troubled sister—all of whom will help to erase the line between guilt and innocence, and between an unthinkable lie and the unbelievable truth.
