☆Inspired by a real case, this is the latest release by top-selling legal thriller author Dale. E. Manolakas ☆ [4.5 Stars ~ 24 Reviews USA]
In this legal thriller, a Yale student’s tragic end triggers a deadly fight for justice against gun sellers and an attack on the Second Amendment right to bear arms. As guns fire and lives shatter, media wars and violence drive this legally pivotal trial against gun sellers. Only the small Los Angeles firm of Kraus & White will take on the cutting-edge case against the national gun establishment and corporate oligarchs. Amidst the firm’s internal strife, lead trial lawyer Sophia Christopoulos and her team fight the well-financed, corrupt opposition in hostile Bakersfield, California. Social tensions fuel the already volatile mix compounded by demonstrations, deaths, scandal, and the ratings-hungry media. Fighting for her life and her firm’s survival, Sophia pushes the Second Amendment case to a climactic trial—confronting the ubiquity and difficulty of gun violence and guns themselves in America.
