Justice isn’t always blind.
Patti McCoy is on trial for killing her boyfriend, Brett Lerner, a maître d’ at the restaurant where Patti worked. But was she simply in the wrong place at the wrong time?
It’s up to the members of the jury to decide. Among the twelve, there’s Ken, a has-been golf pro; Abigail, a once-famous actress way past her prime; Bobby, a financially struggling family man; and Deidre, the socialite wife of a prominent doctor. All have prejudices that taint how they view justice. What they don’t know is that more than one life hangs on their decision. . . .
During the trial, Patti McCoy isn’t the only one who has to deal with innocence and guilt.
Or judgment.Nancy Moser has this to say on her website:
It's an odd occurrence when characters don't behave themselves. In the writing of this book some characters behaved nicely, and others had the audacity to try to hide themselves-from me of all people! Little did they know how tenacious and stubborn I am, and that I would prevail. I did prevail, but it was often exhausting.
