In Her Defense by Margaret Watson
Mac McDougal has an urgent case to solve, and he’s not going to let victim’s advocate A.J. Ferguson stand in his way. His suspect is involved in the disappearance of a young waitress. The clients A.J. is shielding are the man’s abused wife and traumatized young son – the only ones who can lead Mac to the suspect. Mac and A.J. are complete opposites. But as they work together to protect her clients and solve the case, they discover they have more in common than they thought. Can they put their differences aside to find the accused man – before he finds them?
