Overview

The courtrooms of 1903 Los Angeles are a man’s world––until Kit Shannon arrives

With shoulders squared and dreams set high, Kit Shannon arrives in Los Angeles feeling a special calling to the law. Yet under the care of her socialite aunt, Kit quickly comes to realize that few understand her burning desire to seek justice and practice a profession known only to men. When her aunt adamantly refuses to support her unconventional career aspirations, Kit questions whether she is truly following God's will. And when her growing love for a man pledged to another threatens scandal, Kit knows her days might be numbered in Los Angeles.

A chance meeting with Earl Rogers, the city's most prominent criminal trial lawyer, garners Kit an apprentice position. And work on a notorious murder case. Someone has been killing prostitutes in Los Angeles, but Kit is certain it is not Rogers’ client. Determined to find the truth, Kit runs full on into forces that want to stop her, forces that stretch all the way to the citadels of power in the City of Angels.

    Justice for Defendants with Biblical Principals

    Kit Shannon pursues becoming a Lawyer in 1903 Los Angelles, CA. She seeks Truth & Justice for the Accused & Defendants. KIT's life has been shaped by tragedies, yet she lives her life guided by the Bible & her faith in God. She's a pioneer, the Law was practiced by few women. One man gives her the chance, & Kit runs with. This story is an exciting page-turner that I thoroughly enjoyed & I highly recommend.

    This is one of the most poorly written books i have ever read. The characters are unrealistic and poorly developed. Instead of writing mystery novels, the authors should be writing
    Sunday school literature for very young adults. The writing style is very sophomoric, and the plot is predictable and immature.
