Texas Justice by Judith Groudine Finkel
Mara Levine is determined to save her nineteen-year-old son Ariel from being convicted of murder. She battles an ambitious prosecutor, an experienced detective and her former husband whose efforts to protect Ariel backfire.
As Mara seeks the actual killer, she never admits to herself that he could be her son.
Ariel Levine, a teen with no history of violence, seems an unlikely murder suspect, until his writings reveal his violent fantasies. Is he the victim of mistaken identity his mother claims or the manipulative murderer the prosecutor presents to the jury?
