A dead partner and murdered client are more than young attorney Joe McGuinness bargained for when he signed on at one of the most prestigious law firms in Pinnacle Peak, Arizona.
The ink on Joe’s bar license is barely dry when the death of his firm’s senior partner puts the young lawyer’s job in jeopardy. Soon much more is at stake than Joe’s legal career. On the night of his first date with Mia Ortiz, personal assistant to one of the firm’s wealthiest clients, the young couple stumble upon a grisly murder scene: Mia’s boss, Cordelia Barrett, and her son sprawled in a pool of blood.
After Mia is arrested for murder, Joe must unravel a web of secrets to discover who is using killings to claim the rights of heir apparent.
