Public defender Ashley Montgomery's latest case will push her to the limit.
"Twisty crimes and complicated relationships...you won't want to miss." —Shannon Baker, award-winning author of Stripped Bare
When teenager Rachel Smithson is charged with murdering her newborn baby in a hotel room, Ashley is appointed to represent her. Determined to prove her client innocent, Ashley delves into the secret life and relationships of the quiet teen. And turns up more questions than answers.
Meanwhile, Ashley's longtime friend and sometimes rival, police officer Katie Mickey, investigates the alleged murder with the aim of ensuring Rachel's conviction. Despite working against each other, the two women begin to share the same awful suspicions, and the tragic case takes an even darker turn when rumors surface that the father of Rachel’s baby is an adult in her life.
Then Ashley falls victim to a personal attack, and she and Mickey find themselves racing to unmask a different, far more dangerous offender.
Readers will stay up late into the night untangling the web of deception and betrayal in Undetermined Death.
