Immaturity, simmering anger, and years of therapy – budding defense attorney, Benjamin Scales owes it all to his mother.
She dragged him through hell while clawing her way to the top of the sexist, male-dominated legal profession, sacrificing everything to build a life for herself and her son – a bizarre and broken life, but a life. Under her ferocious veneer, Carter Scales is a shattered and lonely woman.
They haven’t spoken in years, but when she is caught in flagrante delicto with her star client, the leader of the notorious Salucci Crime Family, Carter turns to the one person she thinks should always have her back.
But why should he help her?

Five Star Review on Amazon By Avid Reader
Preordered, downloaded yesterday, finished today! As an attorney (in Atlanta, married to a criminal defense attorney who went to Georgia State Law School), the authenticity of this book both in tone and content was refreshing. Although, you don’t have to be any of those things to enjoy this well-written, entertaining and heartfelt story. The book is a great balance between action and exposition, flashback and progression, emotions and logic. Looking forward to more to come from this talented author!
