Not feeling well, Montgomery County Sheriff’s deputy Hudson Vale observes famous lawyer Franklin Mandalay III soliciting Jazz the hooker. Though no longer in Vice and knowing he should ignore the negotiation, Hudson intercedes. Jazz flees while he arrests the prominent Houston attorney.

Franklin files a lawsuit accusing Hudson of false arrest and excess force. Soon afterward someone murders Franklin. The police suspect Hudson whose alibi is Mandalay’s estranged daughter, Elizabeth Downey who he just met at a wedding reception and shared a one-night tryst. The problem with her as his alibi is that everyone knew she hated her dad and was his heir; many believe she hired Hudson to kill her father. The couple turns to Project Justice to prove their innocence before they are railroaded.

The latest Project Justice romantic suspense (see Hidden Agenda) is an exciting mystery that hooks fans from the moment someone murders Mandalay. Fast-paced and with a nod to Selleck’s My Alibi, fans will relish this taut thriller as Manderlay’s superego begins a complex web of deception.
