Trial & Terror

A Psychological Crime Thriller

About the Book

The good news is that public defender Summer Neuwirth just won her first case, which involved a brutal rape and kidnapping.

The bad news? Her client was guilty.

What’s more, he knows all about Summer’s past.

As Summer pursues her next case, this time to keep an innocent woman off death row, elements of that past–a mysterious case of childhood amnesia, her police officer father’s involvement with a serial killer, a terrifying attack she survived just months earlier–entwine with her present legal work, her missing mother, and her rocky relationship with a private investigator, all of which culminate in a thrilling trial… and terror.

“Very good twists and turns. The ending was a mouth dropping moment for me. Absolutely great.”

Denise Gardner, Amazon reviewer

Trial and Terror is a great thriller/mystery, taking a hundred twists and turns through the life of Summer Neuwirth. Summer is a Public Defender with issues. Lots of issues. Starting with getting her defendant off. Then finding out that maybe that wasn’t the best thing to do. Her mother is missing, the prosecutor’s been killed… but yet, there’s more. Nothing is what it seems, even the hunky investigator assigned to work with her has secrets. You’ll have to read to see how they all play out, but trust me – they do all come together, in ways you never expected.
