In The Court's Hands
"If it had rained on the 25th of April at least one woman would not have died. Not that I bear any responsibility for that. Nothing I did intentionally caused anyone's death".
Stenographer Beatrice Barrington witnesses a meeting between the defendant in the criminal case she's working on and a woman who later contacts a member of the jury. Before Beatrice can take any action the juror is found dead.
Still trying to deal with her difficult past, Beatrice is pulled into a world of deception, danger and blackmail. Helped by her friend, retired detective Gabriel Ingram, they are in a race against time to find the truth behind the death of the jury woman before the trial collapses and more people die.
But will she identify the killer in time?
