“Pardon the Ravens” by Alan Hruska. While handling a huge fraud case that could make his reputation, Alec Brno falls for the estranged wife of the mob boss who is behind the fraud. Hruska writes and directs films (and plays) and has written three novels (one science fiction and two legal thrillers). “Pardon the Ravens” sounds a little heavy on the love affair, but will hopefully be an interesting addition to the legal thriller genre.
“Lethal Beauty” by Lis W. Wiehl. This is the third in the series with Seattle prosecuting attorney Mia Quinn as the main character. After a young Chinese prostitute is stabbed to death by her client, Quinn is determined to get justice for her despite jury tampering, threats to her family from the Chinese crime cabal, and the victim’s mother trying to take justice into her own hands.
