Information about the author.
To Philadelphia lawyer Grace Rossi, who’s starting over after a divorce, a part-time job with a federal appeals court sounds perfect. But Grace doesn’t count on being assigned to an explosive death penalty appeal. Nor does she expect ardor in the court, in the form of an affair with her boss, Chief Judge Armen Gregorian. Then the truly unimaginable happens, and Grace finds herself investigating a murder.
As Grace searches for the truth, she unearths a six-figure bank account kept by a judge with an alias; breaks into another judge’s chambers; and follows a trail of bribery and judicial corruption that’s stumped even the FBI.
In no time at all, Grace under fire takes on a whole new meaning.

Mary can’t shake the sensation that someone is watching her. Following her every move. The shadowboxing turns deadly when her worst fears are realized, and she has to fight for something a lot more important than her partnership. Her life.
