It’s hard to believe that it’s been a year since I published the previous book in the Jessie Black series, Deadly Evidence, but the fourth book is finally ready. Fatal Defense will be published for Kindle this Friday, April 7, 2017.
A paperback version will also be available in the next few weeks.
Here’s the cover and book description:
After years prosecuting murderers, assistant district attorney Jessica Black doesn’t think there’s anything that can truly disturb her. She’s wrong.
When a distraught teenage girl shows up out of nowhere, demanding to talk, Jessie thinks the girl looks familiar but can’t quite place her. She claims her father was murdered and the police are letting the killer get away with it. Jessie feels for the girl, but investigating murders is the role of the police department. Jessie is an assistant DA.
Then she realizes why Carrie looks familiar, and what homicide she’s talking about.
Reluctantly drawn into a politically explosive case the police and the DA’s office don’t want her to touch, Jessie finds herself face-to-face with terrifying questions of law and morality in an upside-down world where the line between victim and killer is dangerously blurred. But like Carrie, she won’t stop searching for the truth, even if it means risking her career, her values, and her life.
Jessie Black returns in the acclaimed legal thriller series readers are calling “fast paced and totally spellbinding.” Fatal Defense is the fourth book in the Jessie Black Legal Thrillers series. If you like great characters and surprises that keep you guessing until the end, you’ll love the novels of Larry A. Winters.
