When sixteen-year-old Hannah Sheraton is arrested for the murder of her stepgrandfather, the chief justice of the California Supreme court, her distraught mother turns to her old college roommate, Josie Baylor-Bates, for help. Josie, once a hot-shot criminal defense attorney, left the fast track behind for a small practice in Hermosa Beach, California. But Hannah Sheraton intrigues her and, when the girl is charged as an adult, Josie cannot turn her back. But the deeper she digs the more Josie realizes that politics, the law and family relationships create a combustible and dangerous situation. When the horrible truth is uncovered it can save Hannah Sheraton or destroy them both.
She marketed a world-class spa when it was still called a gym, did business in China before there were western toilettes at the Great Wall and mucked around with the sheep to find out exactly how her client’s fine wool clothing was manufactured. Then on a crazy dare Rebecca Forster wrote her first book and found her passion. Now, with over twenty books to her name she is a USA Today Best Seller and her acclaimed Witness Series has appeared on Kindle’s top seller list for legal thrillers for over a year. Rebecca teaches at UCLA in the Writers Program and has been a featured guest on both radio and television and the subject of numerous newspaper and magazine articles. She is married to a superior court judge and is the mother of two sons, one of whom serves with the Peace Corps in Albania. When she isn’t writing, Rebecca can be found on the tennis court, in the kitchen, at her quilt hooping or traveling.
