Sinopsis: Revised 6/2017
Monroe Lovett and his wife Debbie have moved to Peregrine, Mississippi for a new lease on life. Monroe began his career as an attorney and then after a few years went into the ministry as a pastor. Now, after several years, he's felt the urge to return to practicing law. Upon the advice of an old friend he and Debbie made a move to the small southern town.
There's only one problem; no one seems to know Monroe has set up his practice. He hasn't had a single client. His only wish is for that first one.
In walks Ashley Butler, his first client. Monroe is glad to see her, just to have a someone in need of his service. Little does he realize is she will be the catalyst to more than he bargained for. Her case, involving the murder of her husband's girlfriend, opens a dark closest of Butler family secrets.
To make matters worse, not only will Monroe have to face the arrogant Robert Breaux, Lane County's District Attorney, but other forces are working to derail Monroe's case. Luckily, for him, a godsend in the person of Herm Edwards, a retired New Orleans detective and a native of Peregrine, enters his life at the best possible time.
Ashley Butler's problems started when adultery and accusations led to a single rash act that ended in murder. In a matter of seconds, an argument climaxed with Julie, Marcus Butler Jr.'s mistress, dead.
The Lane County Sheriff's Department receives a tip of hearing the sound of gunshots coming from inside the Butler home. Minutes later, deputies arrived to find Julie's body lying on the bedroom floor. The ill-tempered Detective Carson investigates the crime scene and upon leaving gets a tip that Ashley is the killer. The detective issues out an all-points bulletin for the arrest of Ashley Butler.
Ashley hears from a friend that deputies are looking for her. Knowing her husband's family, she seeks the help of the only person she believes she can trust, Lane County's newest defense attorney, Monroe T. Lovett. Knowing that her husband's father, Marcus Sr., holds power over most of Lane County, she's not even sure Monroe can help her. But he's her only hope.
Speaking with Monroe in his office, Ashley explains that she is about to be arrested for murdering her husband's girlfriend. Monroe, in desperate need of a client, agrees to take her case. Soon, he learns Ashley isn't just any client, and he will have to fight to save her life.
Monroe will soon discover that Robert Breaux, the self-serving, egotistical district attorney, is interested in one thing--winning. Justice is not Breaux's goal. He knows that convictions translate into votes and attaining political clout.
Monroe hires Herm, although he is unsure where Herm's loyalties lie since he is from Peregrine. Trust issues between them and with the local legal system intensify as Monroe becomes suspicious of a possible corrupt sheriff's department possibly trying to thwart his case.
As his defense begins to unravel quickly, Monroe is forced to take another approach to prove Ashley's innocence. This new approach lands him right in the middle of the Butler family secret, a secret that even Ashley does not know exists. No one in Lane County knows the truth the Butlers have been hiding for years, and Monroe is about to rip the door of the closet. Marcus Butler Sr., the family patriarch, will do whatever he must to keep Monroe from doing just that.
To do that and avoid community humiliation, Marcus Butler Sr. forms some new alliances to ensure his secrets remains buried. These new alliances include a man named Félix Roche, and Mr. Roche is a man with more than one agenda.
Only the truth can free Ashley, but finding the truth will mean revealing her past, a past she would just as soon forget. Monroe encourages her, telling her this is her only avenue to freedom. His plan? Go after the patriarch, Marcus Butler Sr., and expose the man and his secret. It is the only way Butler's justice will prevail.
From the Back Cover: Not a single client and running short on cash, Attorney Monroe Lovett questions why he moved to Mississippi. Ashley Butler feels that she's reached her proverbial, end of the rope. Not knowing where to turn, she goes to see Lane County's newest defense lawyer. She informs him that she believes that she's about to be arrested for killing her husband's girlfriend. With little information, and needing a client, Monroe agrees to take her case.
