Monday mornings are hell.
That's what Carolyn Sullivan is thinking as she arrives at her office at the Ventura County Probation Department. One of her probationers has just been arrested for rape.
Just when Carolyn should be lying low, instead she's assigned a sensitive case that's sure to have everyone breathing down her neck—supervising convicted killer and paranoid schizophrenic Daniel Metroix.
Twenty-three years ago, the son of the police chief was pushed into the path of an oncoming car, and Metroix went to prison for the boy's murder. Everything in Metroix's file indicates that he's unpredictable and dangerous. But what's more unsettling is his claim that he's innocent - a claim that crawls under Carolyn's skin and stays there, especially when a routine meeting erupts into an inferno that nearly kills them both. Protecting him is Carolyn's only chance to defend herself and her family—and to right a wrong that may have sent an innocent man to prison, while letting a killer go free.
"A gutsy heroine, a fast-moving plot, an insider's look at the justice system—Sullivan's Law is everything a legal thriller fan could hope for. As always, Nancy Taylor Rosenberg delivers the goods. This will be another bestseller." —Nelson DeMille

Nancy Taylor Rosenberg introduces a new heroine, Caroline Sullivan, investigative probation officer, in this taut, razor-sharp thriller. Sandra Burr's staccato presentation of Sullivan's investigative skills moves this drama well beyond the written word. While her voice sometimes sounds strangely childlike for this take-charge heroine, she does deliver convincing competence when bombs explode, Caroline's life is threatened, and her son is kidnapped. Getting stronger as the story moves forward, Burr truly captures the author's tone and intent. K.A.T. © AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
