Keeping Counsel by Rebecca Forster
New Mexico attorney, Tara Linley, has always believed in the power and fairness of the law. All that changes when she takes on her best friend’s lover as a client.
It is only after she reluctantly agrees to represent Bill Hamilton that Tara discovers the real reason he has sought her out and the shocking crime he has committed. Attorney/client privilege prevents Tara from warning her friend that her life is in danger and the District Attorney's political agenda blocks the only legal solution to her problem.
Caught up in a web of escalating circumstances that threaten not only her professional reputation but her life, Tara finds herself at the mercy of her dangerously unstable client…a man who is growing more psychotic by the day.
