From the Book: It was a beautiful day to steal an airplane. Special Agent Leilani Texeira put her hands on her hips and scanned the wide-open bay of the vast steel storage building Paradise Airlines owner Max Smiley used as a hangar and big-boy toy box. Her partner, Ken Yamada, photographed the area: smooth cement floor dotted with a few drops of oil where the ultralight plane had been parked. Ceiling-mounted racks of already-rigged windsurf sails hung above a row of quad vehicles and dirt bikes, all neatly parked in metal stanchions. Along the far wall, a row of shiny antique roadsters gleamed. “It should be right here.” Smiley’s caterpillar-thick gray brows were drawn together into a single untrimmed hedgerow over narrowed blue eyes. He stamped his foot for emphasis. “Right here.”

Editor’s Note: Need a thiller fix? Check out this suspensful legal thriller that will be sure to have you guessing at every page!
The suspense in this book absolutely hooked me!
Book Description: Dani Trumball is a working mom with a long commute, a son with special needs, and a rewarding job writing appeals briefs for The Help Innocent Prisoners Project. But a letter from a convicted child-killer on death row turns her life upside down. George Calhoun claims he’s been wrongly accused. The story he tells Dani, if it’s true, will stretch her understanding of a parent’s love. Can she track down the truth before it’s too late for George?
Author’s Inspiration: “Write what you know,” is the time-tested adage. As a lawyer and a working mother, I created a protagonist whose both committed to her family and to her job, and feels the pressure of balancing both. Because of my interest in the wrongly convicted, I made my protagonist an attorney working for the Help Innocent Prisoner’s Project.
Actor Who Would Play the Main Character: Julia Roberts.
From the Book: I didn’t kill my little girl. The body in the woods—that wasn’t my daughter. The words on the page kept ringing in Dani Trumball’s ears. I loved my little girl and only wanted to help her.
Most of the letters on her desk Dani went through quickly, spotting the scams easily enough and tossing them aside for a quick response from her secretary. “Dear (fill in the blank): We regret that the Help Innocent Prisoners Project is unable to assist you at this time.” Others rang true and might warrant some added sentences. “While we appreciate your circumstances, the many requests for our limited services mean we can only accept a few cases. We wish you the best of luck in finding someone else to help you.” Only a few, a very few, were taken on.
This book is free 4/10.
