Criminal defense attorney Suzannah Phelps is the bane of the Fredericton Police Department (they call her She-Rex for her habit of shredding cops in the witness box). She is currently being stalked, but is reluctant to report it to the police, whom she half suspects of being the perpetrators of the low-level harassment. Detective John (Quigg) Quigley has always had a bit of a thing for Suzannah Phelps. When he learns of the harassment, it gives him the perfect opportunity to interact with her. They’ve struck sparks off each other in the courtroom, and he’s burning to do the same in the bedroom. But when the stalker ups his game, Quigg knows it’s not a case of disgruntled cops razzing her.
Hot coffee, flying body parts, and how a jury once found that workplace harassment caused an armed robbery. These are true stories that are supported by actual court records, along with legal analysis explaining in plain English how each court reached its particular result. Learn how evidence is hidden from the jury (lawfully), how an armed robber can be caught red handed and then set free if police don’t follow procedure, and why doctors are so obsessive about writing things down.
