BLURB: When Riley Schoenberg strides into family lawyer Sandy Moss’s office without knocking and coolly sits down, Sandy’s more irritated than amused. She has a client meeting to prepare for, and being interrupted by an eleven-year-old girl is not on her to-do list.
But then Sandy hears Riley’s pitch, and it’s a killer one: Riley’s father’s been convicted of murdering her mother . . . and the oddly intimidating pre-teen will do anything to get him out of jail.
Sandy, in turn, will do anything to get Riley out of her office. Which includes agreeing to look into her dad’s case for free. A decision she regrets when it turns out Riley’s inheritance has made her a multi-millionaire. Still, Sandy’s determined to get Riley the answers she needs. There’s just one tiny problem: Riley might be convinced her father’s innocent, but Jack Schoenberg is insisting he did it.
I was delighted when I saw this one pop up on Netgalley, as I’ve previously enjoyed other books in the series – see my reviews of Inherit the Shoes and Justice for the Persecution. I’ve a real soft spot for Sandy Moss and Copperman’s steady injection of humour throughout makes the ongoing puzzle as to whodunit always more enjoyable. So the fact that an eleven-year-old child is desperately fighting to free her remaining parent won’t be quite as grim as it initially sounds. I hope…
This sounds so good! And I’m dying to meet Riley, I think she’ll be such a fun character😁
I’m hoping so too, Tammy:)).
I like the title, it sounds interesting. I hope you enjoy it when you get a chance to read it.
Yes – Copperman’s play on titles is always enjoyable:)).
This sounds really good! The synopsis had me chuckling in spots, so I imagine the book will be full of laughs. Riley sounds like quite the character, lol! Thanks for sharing!
You’re welcome, Ashley:).
I hope you’ll enjoy this one as much as the other two in the series!
Thank you, Stephanie – I’m looking forward to getting to this one:)).
I’ve read a few books by this author and enjoyed them and this one looks interesting! I hope you enjoy this one!
Thank you, Katherine:). I’d realised that Copperman must be an experienced author – I’ll look out for other books by them.
