FOR LEGAL THRILLER LOVERS! eBOOK ONLY $2.99
Infighting, carnage, and sexual favors are the real rule of law at the Los Angeles law firm of Thorne & Chase! Complex characters immerse you in the cutthroat culture of big money law firms–firms where partners and associates must win at all costs. They cannibalize each other battling for money, power, love, clients, and ultimately their own survival. With blue-collar idealism and onerous student loans, first-year associate Sophia Christopoulos covets the firm’s money and power. But her new friendships, love, and success come with the shocking price of disillusionment, murder, and betrayal. When Sophia is hurled into a murder investigation, she is torn between ethics and firm politics, as well as love and truth. Fighting to save her career and life, she becomes the star witness–and then a target.

Five Star Review on Amazon By Linda
This was a good story. The writer was good but not great or profound. Just a good storyteller and that’s all you need for this. It did keep me guessing about when the other shoe was going to fall. I was ready to give up about halfway through because the legal talk began to overpower the story but it went back to mostly story so I finished it. I really wanted to know how it ended! I would recommend this to anyone who wants to read a fast paced story with a strong woman protagonist. If you have a legal background, you’ll probably really love it because it is all set in that background.
About the Author
TOP 100 LEGAL THRILLER AUTHOR
After a lifetime of writing poetry, books, nonfiction, and legal documents, it was author Ray Bradbury’s friendship and encouragement that finally inspired Dale E. Manolakas to pursue writing as a career. He taught her that the characters wrote the book–she didn’t. She was raised just outside Los Angeles by a surgeon father and a homemaker-author mother.
Dale E. Manolakas earned her B.A. from the University of California at Los Angeles, and M.A., M.S., Ph.D. and J.D. degrees from the University of Southern California. She is a member of the California Bar, had the privilege of clerking for The Honorable Arthur L. Alarcón at the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, was a litigator in two major Los Angeles law firms, and a senior appellate attorney at the California Court of Appeals, as well as an Administrative Law Judge.
