OVERRIDE

Under Fire

Margaret McLean

Forge Books

A Boston firefighter is shot and killed in the line of duty while rescuing Amina Diallo and her fifteen-year-old son, Malick, from their burning store. Diallo, a Senegalese Muslim immigrant, is arrested for arson and murder, and will likely be convicted in record time.  

Attorneys Sarah Lynch and Buddy Clancy face more than racial and religious prejudice in this impossible courtroom battle.  Diallo is targeted by a gunman in open court, a key defense witness is attacked, and documents are stolen.  Someone is trying to stop Sarah and Clancy from winning the case.  They must find out who and why.  A dangerous pursuit of the truth becomes Amina’s only chance in Margaret McLean's Under Fire.
