“The Pursuit of Justice is an auspicious debut courtroom drama” — Kirkus Reviews

Attorney Raymond Jackson is troubled by ethics charges, his failing practice, and memories of his still missing sister. When he agrees to resolve the ethics charges by taking on a case from the public defender, he gets saddled with a client nobody wants.

The client is charged with the murder of his former girlfriend, an exotic dancer who was pregnant at the time of the crime. Investigating the State’s key witness, Ray discovers several similar unsolved murders from the past few years. Needing help, Ray must turn to the man he trusts the least.

Ray also becomes involved in a money laundering investigation with his old girlfriend. As the bodies pile up, Ray finds himself framed for murder on the eve of trial. When the investigations collide, the cases become personal and Ray must choose between justice for his client or himself.

The Pursuit of Justice is one of the best books I’ve read in a long time! Normally it takes me weeks to finish a book, but this suspenseful thriller had me reading every spare moment I had, and I finished it in only a few days!

This book is the best book I’ve read in a long time! The story line comes to life as though I became a character in the book! I always try to imagine the book in the sense of a movie playing in my mind and The Pursuit of Justice does just that!
