Mass Market Paperback (November 2018)
A woman stumbles onto a dark road in rural Oregon—
tortured, battered, and bound. She tells a horrific story
about being kidnapped, then tortured, until she finally
managed to escape. She was the lucky one—two other women,
with similar burns and bruises, were found dead.
The surviving victim identifies the house where she was
held captive and the owner, Alex Mason—a prominent local
attorney—is arrested. Although he loudly insists upon his
innocence, his wife’s statements about his sexual sadism
and the physical evidence found at the scene, his summer
home, is damning.
Regina Barrister is a legendary criminal defense
attorney, known as “The Sorceress” for her courtroom
victories. But she’s got a secret, one that threatens her
skill, her reputation, and, most of all, her clients. And
she’s agreed to take on the seemingly impossible task of
defending Alex Mason.
Robin Lockwood, a young lawyer and former MMA fighter,
has just left a clerkship at the Oregon Supreme Court to
work for Regina Barrister. The Alex Mason trial is her
first big one, a likely death penalty case, and she’s
second chair to Regina. Increasingly, she’s worried her
boss’s behavior and the details in the case against their
client don’t quite add up.
