A Jack MacTaggart Mystery

As a deputy public defender, Los Angeles attorney Jack MacTaggart never learned to get along by going along. Now practicing amid the sun-drenched affluence of Pasadena, Jack's penchant for irreverence and his fondness for the underdog prove equally abrasive to the moneyed interests outside of government -- and his past has a nasty habit of intruding into his pastoral present. Hush Money, the first installment in the Jack MacTaggart series, won the grand-prize Storyteller Award in the SouthWest Writers' International Writing Contest, and was named a finalist for several national honors including the Rocky Award from Left Coast Crime and the Audie Award from the Audio Publishers Association.
