After the crime is over, the real drama begins. From the best mystery writers at work today come twenty-two new stories about gripping courtroom and legal showdowns.

Bestselling author Linda Fairstein, who “makes legal issues more exciting than any high-speed chase” (New York Times), presents these thrilling stories of lawyers under pressure, criminals facing the needle, and heartbroken families who hope for justice and who sometimes take it into their own hands.

In James Grippando’s “Death, Cheated,” a lawyer defends his ex-girlfriend against the investors who bet $1.5 million on her death. In Barbara Parker’s “A Clerk’s Life,” a disillusioned clerk at a corporate law firm suspects the worst of his colleagues when one of the firm’s employees is murdered. In Phyllis Cohen’s “Designer Justice,” an accused murderer thinks he’s lucked out when he lands a high-priced lawyer, only to learn that there are worse fates than being found guilty.
