Against the Law & Music Notes
ABOUT AGAINST THE LAW
Fresh out of prison, former lawyer Edward Hall thinks his days in the courtroom are behind him. Until his sister, Dr Amy Hall, is arrested for murder...
She's been accused of shooting the ex-husband she supposedly reconciled with and is convinced that her ex-convict brother is the only one able to save her. To make matters worse, the media won't ignore Amy's high-profile case; an example needs to be made of a doctor murdering another doctor. So Edward promises to do everything he can to protect his sister, because she is innocent, isn't she?
Edward finds himself back in the courtroom facing Cynthia, the judge responsible for his arrest and imprisonment all those years ago. With personal grudges heavy in the air, can Edward spare his sister from a brutal sentencing that could cost her her life?
ABOUT MUSIC NOTES
Attorney Merit Bridges finds herself in danger again in Music Notes: Texas Lady Lawyer vs L.A. Baron. When client Liam Nolan is slain with his own guitar, Davey Ray Bell shows up claiming to be the celebrity musician's illegitimate son. L.A. Baron, Nolan's former manager, makes a back-door music deal and tries to grab the estate for himself. When the probate court pushes Baron out of the picture, he goes after Merit with a vengeance. Using the dark web, he ruins her reputation, destroys her career, and finally attempts to kill her. Who will come out on top of the scales of music and the scales of justice?

ABOUT MANNING WOLFE
Manning Wolfe, an author and attorney residing in Austin, Texas, writes cinematic-style, smart, fast-paced thrillers with a salting of Texas flavor. The first in her series, featuring Austin Lawyer Merit Bridges, is Dollar Signs: Texas Lady Lawyer vs. Boots King. The other Merit Bridges legal thrillers follow. A graduate of Rice University and the University of Texas School of Law, Manning's experience has given her a voyeur's peak into some shady characters' lives and a front row seat to watch the good people who stand against them.
