John Quinn, an investigative journalist on England’s biggest-selling and most notorious tabloid newspaper, is about to write the story of his life – a kiss-and-tell with one of the country’s most powerful men at its heart. But the story dies when Lorna Thomas, the kiss in his kiss-and-tell, kills herself on a quiet country road.

Unable to accept her twin’s suicide, Laurie Thomas follows in her sister’s footsteps to London and to the heart of government. And as she becomes more involved in Lorna’s world, she grows more convinced than ever that Lorna did not take her own life.

But if Lorna didn’t kill herself, who did?

In Book 2 of the bestselling thriller series, lawyer Kate Lange must defend an accused who is indefensible—her boss.

What if you were accused of a terrible crime—by your own child?

When Elise Vanderzell plummets from her bedroom balcony one gorgeous summer night, her children awaken to a nightmare.

Their mother is dead.
Their father is charged with her murder.

"...a superbly plotted and suspenseful thriller..."—Omnimystery 

Lawyer Kate Lange knows all about nightmares. She's survived the darkest period of her troubled life and the wounds are still raw. 

Now she's been handed a case that seems utterly unwinnable: defending her boss, high-profile lawyer Randall Barrett. 

A prosecutor's dream suspect, Randall is a man who was cuckolded by his ex-wife. A man who could not control his temper. A man who had argued bitterly with the victim the previous day in full view of his children.

"...the suspense is intense, the action shocking and the plot intriguing..."—RT Book Reviews 

With limited criminal law experience, Kate finds herself enmeshed in a family fractured by doubt. Randall's teenage son is intent on killing him. His daughter wants only to feel safe again. And the entire legal community would like nothing better than to see Randall receive a public comeuppance. 

As Kate races to stay a step ahead of the prosecution, a silent predator is waiting for the perfect time to deal the final blow.

"Indefensible is a one-seat read!"—Manic Readers 

If you love "...a superbly plotted and suspenseful thriller"( —Omnimystery) with psychological and domestic suspense elements, a strong police procedural storyline, heart-stopping action, a complex cast characters whose motives are questioned at every turn, then you will enjoy INDEFENSIBLE.
