What I'm Reading
The Two Lila Bennetts
Liz Fenton and Lisa Steinke tell a tale of The Two Lila Bennetts. She is captured—blindfolded and restrained—as well as constrained by the ethics of her profession to defend a client who may be guilty of murder. Once the client is found not guilty, all hell breaks loose. And that’s just by page one.
