The Heart of Justice

William J. Coughlin

St. Martin's Paperbacks

Hope Scott...
She's a beautiful New York heiress who will do anything for love, including pulling strings with a ruthless power broker to advance her husband's judicial career. But she doesn't know the hidden price; a blackmail, the rape of her trust fund, and perhaps the ruin of her marriage.

Judge Paul Murray...
He fought his way up from his working-class Irish roots to the Federal bench. Tough and honest, dedicated to the law, he relishes sitting on the case before to rival some of America's biggest corporate takeovers.

The heart of justice..
The outcome is worth billions, the tactics cutthroat, and suddenly, with the threatened exposure of a ruinous secret, everything Paul cares about is on the line--his marriage, his career, his reputation. Now faced with choices he never thought he'd have to make, he must confront what truly lies at the heart of justice...

With lighting dialogue and authentic courtroom action, William J. Coughlin, former prosecutor and bestselling author of In the Presence of Enemies and Shadow of a Doubt, spins another superb legal thriller filled with emotions on the fire, intellects at war, and an outcome exploding with excitement and surprise.
