Kate Baneberry, tired after a long day of jury duty,
only wants to get home, eat and go to bed. She manages to
convince herself that nobody is in the house with her after
hearing strange noises. The next day she is taken to the
hospital suffering from symptoms of food poisoning and with
treatment she seems to be on the road to recovery until she
suffers an unexpected fatal heart attack.
Kate's daughter Sheri hires Alabama attorney Tom
McInnes to investigate why her mother died when she showed
signs of a full recovery. Once Tom takes the case his life
changes dramatically. He's followed everywhere he goes by
very dangerous looking men, an arrest warrant is issued
with his name on it and he attends a bar hearing to see if
he's still able to practice law. All his problems will go
away if he just drops the case but Tom is a crusader who
won't rest until justice is served.
Fans of John Grisham's THE FIRM will find this novel
even more exciting and stimulating because it doesn't look
like the hero is going to obtain justice for his client or
himself. Mike Stewart is a natural born storyteller as
evidenced by his work A CLEAN KILL that keeps readers
turning the pages to see what happens next.
