An Absence of Ethics (Paperback)
Rosa Norway moved upward through the ranks of legions of attorneys practicing in Nashville, until she had finally become one of the premier criminal attorneys in the City. But she crossed the line and suddenly found herself on the cusp of losing everything she had worked so hard to achieve. She woke up one morning in the arms of John Hampton, the Criminal Court Judge currently presiding over a pending case of manslaughter involving her client, Jake McKay. Later, while still involved in the trial, as a result of a disastrous turn of events she suddenly found herself positioned to lose her right to practice law and potentially her own freedom. While she contended with a mixture of ethical and personal issues, she continued to struggle not only with a client who insisted he was not guilty of the gruesome crime with which he was charged, but also with his overbearing, controlling friend, who appeared to be capable of doing almost anything to insure the legal proceedings progressed as he wished. She had one person she felt she could trust. Unfortunately, he was the cop investigating those yet publicly undisclosed issues of which she was deeply involved. Each move she made seemed to only drag her deeper into a swirl of ethical and legal violations which, unfortunately, also seemed to adversely affect every one close to her.
