Baker & Taylor
When four of her colleagues are found shot to death, all of whom had previously defended men accused of rape--and won--young LA attorney Debra Laslow finds herself both a prime suspect in the killings and a possible target, since she is now defending a man on trial for rape

Blackwell North Amer
Murder is always heinous, but when two Los Angeles women attorneys are found dead with their tongues cut out, it's downright gruesome. And for criminal defense attorney Debra Laslow the killings are even more horrifying ... because she's suspected of doing them.
The daughter of an Orthodox rabbi, Debra treads a fine line between her moral beliefs and the dictates of the law. Often she consults with her father about any possible conflicts between her job and her religion, and the Talmud usually provides an interesting, if not always easy, answer. Now Debra's defending a doctor accused of date rape by his receptionist. Although Debra believes the doctor's innocent, the young woman she will cross-examine - and possibly humiliate in open court - belongs to her close-knit Orthodox community. She may even ruin the woman's chances of marriage. And if the doctor is guilty and Debra wins the case, she'll be responsible for an even crueler injustice.
