Eight colonists were killed at the original Battle of Lexington, but just before Thanksgiving, at the Pittsburgh Museum of American History, the life-sized diorama of that battle has nine bodies.

The ninth is a murder victim, Thomas Bradshaw, a prominent Pittsburgh connoisseur, and Cynthia Jakubec will be drawn into one of the sideshows surrounding the investigation.

Jakubec is a working-class gal who’s about to jump from Main Street to Wall Street on the strength of her Harvard Law School degree—and marry a budding novelist as well—when the big recession in the fall of 2008 puts her dream on hold. She finds herself working, temporarily she hopes, as a legal intern at a Pittsburgh law firm that does “street law” instead of “suite law.” The firm is representing Thomas Bradshaw’s daughter, who may be a material witness to the crime—or worse. As Jakubec follows the investigation, the trail takes her from a black church in Pittsburgh’s ghetto to the very luxury building in midtown Manhattan, where she dreams of working, and gives her a broken nose and a broken heart along the way.

Before her Wall Street dream is again within her grasp, Jakubec will come to appreciate Robert F. Kennedy’s memorable advice: “Forgive your enemies—but remember their names.”

    New York Journal of Books

  • “Locke, herself a lawyer, convincingly depicts nuances of class, race, and the law. Her heroine’s strong first-person voice bodes well for future Cynthia Jakubek outings.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Cyn, with her family, fiancé, boss, clients, and colleagues, is so likable, readers will consider her an imaginary friend.”


  • “Caitlin’s family dynamics are a bit heavy…but the family drama does help propel the reader along…A promising beginning to a fresh new series.”


Listener Opinions

    " Entertaining lightweight thriller with a likable protagonist. Incredibly loose fact checking and internal consistency. Eg Is she a vegetarian or does she want to drink a coffee cup filled with TG gravy. Just saying. "

    " Great book to listen to while a person works out... "

    " Not a bad little read. Somewhat formulaic, but some interesting twists and a very unexpected ending. "
