Man In The Client Chair

By Jay Brandon and Manning Wolfe


The media is hyper-interested in the divorce and disappearance of Senator James Winston’s wife. The Baltimore law firm of Steve and Loni Lewis are hired to handle the divorce of the power couple. A cold case involving a friend’s murder, a mystery lover, and the reappearance of Mrs. Winston, with an incredulous story, baffle the legal team. As the pieces of the puzzle fall into place, Steve and Loni become the target of those with much to hide.

Will the legal team prevail or wind up at the bottom of Baltimore Harbor?
