Samara Moss--young, petite and sexy as hell--stabbed her husband in the heart. Or so everyone believes. Having married the elderly billionaire when she was an eighteen-year-old former prostitute, Samara appears to be the cliched gold digger. But Jaywalker knows all too well that appearances can be deceiving. Who else could have killed the billionaire? Has Samara been framed? Or is Jaywalker just driven by his need to win his clients' cases--and this particular client's undying gratitude?

Criminal defense attorney Teller fills this captivating first installment of the Jaywalker series with sympathetic, nuanced characters and elegantly simplified legalese. The court sentences disgraced Manhattan criminal defense attorney Harrison J. Walker, “Jaywalker,” to three years of suspension from practice, ordering him to complete 10 of his current cases and hand the rest over to other attorneys. Forced to choose among his clients, Jaywalker focuses on the defense of Samara Tannenbaum, a beautiful young ex-prostitute accused of murdering her aging billionaire husband. Throughout the difficult and lengthy trial, Jaywalker provides Samara with superior legal counsel even as he fights his tremendous attraction to her and his doubts of her innocence. Teller's richly suspenseful story will leave the reader eagerly anticipating the denouement and Jaywalker's next adventure. (Oct.)
