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.”

    Booklist

  • “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.”

    " 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. "
