Kali O'Brien Mysteries; Vol. 2; 0.9 x 6.9 x 4.2 Inches; 373 pages
Combining an insider's knowledge of the justice system with a talent for powerhouse storytelling, Jonnie Jacobs raises the standard for legal suspense with savvy San Francisco attorney Kali O' Brien. In her second mystery, Kali races against time to untangle one of the most complex cases of her career.
When Lisa Cornell and her five-year-old daughter are killed, Wes Harding, a former classmate of Kali's, becomes the prime suspect. Kali agrees to assist her long-time legal mentor on the case but is stunned when Harding refuses to help his own defense and won't explain why. Kali soon discovers that Lisa Cornell harbored secrets of her own -- including a mysterious link to a long-ago tragedy. Racing against time, Kali must use her wit and legal savvy to get to the bottom of this very complicated case. But even she doesn't suspect how close to danger she is -- or how much she'll risk to bring a cunning killer to justice.
