    Mass Market Paperback Description:

    Justice Isn’t Always Black and WhiteCutthroat defense attorney and rising celebrity Felicia Fontaine is about to tackle her biggest—and seemingly most unwinnable—case yet, defending a white businessman accused of killing an office rival, a Hispanic man promoted over him. With her reputation and confidence on the line, the ever-savvy Felicia needs to watch her every step to successfully get through this controversial case dubbed the "Affirmative Action Murder" by a salacious press. She won’t get any breaks from the prosecution, though, for the DA is none other than her toughest adversary, and former flame, Mario Santiago, a smart, ethical professional who’ll do what it takes—even if it means risking his new marriage—to win a conviction.
    Thrust into the spotlight of a critical and unrelenting media, under the wary eyes of a divided country, these two passionate lawyers will face off in a trial that will explore the deceptive difference between justice and revenge—a case where truth has no meaning against outrage, envy, ambition, and desire. A case you will never forget.
