Description: For the defense-Cosima Bernadin. To her clients, a loyal champion; to her opponents, an implacable adversary; to her lovers-a fantasy fulfilled.
When Cosima walks away from a six-figure salary and the perks that come with being a hired-gun for one of the country's most prestigious law firms, her father's silver hair turns gray. But as she's always done, Cosima goes her own way, astounding her legal confreres by building a law firm that is destined to become one of the most powerful in America.
But before that heady goal can be realized, Cosima must repel the clandestine attacks of jealous colleagues, and by ingenious connivance gain the leverage she needs to play hardball wilth the best. Her erotic adventures run in counterpoint to those ongoing maneuvers, which culminate in her being attorney for-the-defense in America's most celebrated trial.
In "For the Defense" William Harrington creates a memorable herooine whose vie d'amour is as inventive as her courtroom strategey.
