About the Book

A crusading cop, a beleaguered Public Defender/restaurateur, a beautiful gymnast and her wayward brother – a single horrible event inextricably twists together their lives. Martin King, Assistant Public Defender, who along with his wife, Moeisha, own CALIFORNIA (an upscale Nouveau American restaurant), sees his life crumble when he is suspected of being the murderer of beautiful young Autumn Winter, the sister of Martin’s client, Kirk. Homicide Detective Duane Battier methodically builds his case and then hands it off to Bilbo Ballard, Assistant State Attorney, to prosecute Martin for first degree murder, punishable by execution. Martin’s defense is ably handled by Orlando mega-star defense attorney Donny Salvatore. The story of the events that both lead to and follow that fateful incident, is frightful, angering, sad and funny. Along the way, the reader will learn about police, court, and defense procedure, be exposed to life as a restaurant owner and life with autistic children. Interesting and memorable characters along with image-conjuring writing make this a compelling and enjoyable read. Additionally, the reader will find a trove of “Easter Eggs” of pop culture strewn throughout.
