Inhaltsangabe: DEADLINE FOR MURDER Defending a crime reporter accused of a double-homicide puts Hilary Adams to the test once more. Can she meet the deadline for murder? *** Attorney Hilary Adams makes the difficult decision not to run for another term as Louisville?s top prosecutor. She?s determined to return to the defense side of the justice system. The only hitch is that her newfound resolve isn?t resonating too well with her husband Peter Elliott, Louisville?s police chief. On the first day after her incumbency has ended, Hilary receives an unexpected and very hard to resist offer from Winfield Bennett, the managing partner of Louisville?s biggest white-shoe law firm. He wants her to head up a newly formed criminal litigation division. Unable to turn down such a prestigious position and the obscene salary package that accompanies it, Hilary accepts. She soon realizes, however, that the job comes with a hefty price tag?take on every case Win throws her way, including the representation of his old college chum, journalist Blake Hunter, a happily married man who can?t seem to remember how he woke up that morning in a seedy motel room with a very dead young woman. Then, in quick succession, another murder victim turns up. Blake?s new boss is found brutally beaten and stabbed in exactly the same manner as the young woman. Evidence, including DNA left at each of the crime scenes, points to only one person as being the culprit in both slayings?Hilary?s errant client, Blake Hunter. As always, Hilary has her work cut out for her. Once again, she?s up to the challenge.
Über den Autor: Linda began writing in 2000 after defending a young woman accused of murdering three of her own family members. It was the first time Linda had been introduced to eastern Kentucky justice, and the lessons she learned were profound, the events of that representation career changing. Her writing became a cathartic exercise. Fresh out of law school, Linda became a prosecutor in the Jefferson County Commonwealth?s Attorney?s Office, working her way up through the ranks, first in a general trial division, then the career criminal bureau and, finally, being assigned to the county?s first domestic violence unit as director and chief prosecutor. Married with two children (and two cats), she now practices law with her husband in Louisville, Kentucky, concentrating in medical malpractice claims. And, when time permits, she uses her considerable knowledge of the law to write thrilling suspense novels.
