The verdict is in, and the praise is unanimous. R.A. Forster "reinvents
the legal thriller" raves Polly Whitney, author of Until Death.
Correspondent Laurie L. Levenson hails Forster's debut novel Keeping
as "the perfect legal thriller. Impossible to put down." Now, in
the bestselling tradition of John Grisham and Nancy Taylor Rosenberg comes
R.A. Forster's riveting new novel of suspense...
Kathleen Cotter worked her way through law school, and all it got her was a
shared cubical in a strip-mall firm. Then her uncle, the legendary criminal
attorney Gerry O'Doul, invites her to join his practice in Beverly Hills.
But O'Doul's firm turns out to be more flash than substance—until a new
client walks through the door. The woman wants to sue the estate of her dead
ex-husband so she can cash in on his life insurance. When the case goes to
court, the presiding judge challenges Kathleen to prove that the late Lionel
Brooker did not commit suicide.
As a family's carefully guarded secret explodes in scandal and murder,
Kathleen finds herself following a trail of lies and corruption that stretches to
the highest levels of government. To save her own life, she must uncover the
one thing even more dangerous than a killer out for blood: the truth.
