Mistress of Justice
By Jeffery Deaver
Deaver's first novel, rewritten since first publication to bring it up to the highest possible standard.
DEAVER. DANGEROUSLY GOOD.
Taylor Lockwood spends her days working as a paralegal in one of New York's pre-eminent Wall Street law firms and her nights playing jazz piano anywhere she can.
But the rhythm of her life is disrupted when attorney Mitchell Reece asks her to find a stolen document that could cost him the multimillion dollar case he's defending... and his career as well.
Taylor signs on... only to find that as she delves deeper and deeper into what goes on behind closed doors at Hubbard, White & Willis, she uncovers more than she wants to know - including secrets damaging enough to smash careers and dangerous enough to kill for.
But who is capable of going to that extreme? With her life on the line, Taylor is about to learn the lethal answer...
