Women basketball players--Fiction; Murder--Fiction
A beautiful and promising athlete is dead. The only suspect — her fiancé — has been apprehended. And as a defense attorney, it is Julia's job to prove that Mick is innocent.
But Julia believes he is guilty.
No stranger to the crimes that men commit against women, Julia can easily believe that rich, talented, spoiled Mick did indeed kill Avery. Both were basketball stars at the University of Utah, and both were popular; yet everyone — except Mick's family and Julia's boss — believes that Mick is the murderer.
As the evidence against Mick mounts, Julia stumbles across a secret Avery had kept hidden from everyone, even Mick. Julia realizes that perhaps she may have more than just reasonable doubt to support Mick's case — if she can face her past and reveal her own secret. Meanwhile, Pablo, Julia's new co-counsel, becomes convinced that Mick did not murder Avery, but can he convince Julia?
Guilty or innocent? With Pablo's help, Julia may be able to overcome her own fears and uncover the truth about Avery at the same time — if the murderer doesn't find her first. (Publisher website)
