About the Book

Ocean Court is a legal mystery with a smattering of sex more steamy than Miami sand.   Poverty lawyer, Avery Guerin, is trying to find a killer.

"Some U.S. Customs officers -- the real Miami vice -- scooped Spider out of the Miami River and found Jonathan´s business card, wet and torn, in his muddy pocket. So Avery´s dear friend was summoned to the morgue to identify the bloated body."

While she begins to look for clues among Miami´s homeless, Avery is drawn into a secret affair with her law student intern.

"This infuriated her. Typical of their whole relationship. He teased; she fell for it, and then he backed away. He knew exactly what she was thinking by her look. They couldn´t have triggered each other´s buttons any worse if they had been married. But they weren´t."

"Foo had put it bluntly, ´Find a real man.´ To Foo, that was one who slept with his boots on."  

"Jon never seemed to give a hundred percent to anyone. That was his power. He was still amazed with Alex´ legal prowess, his commitment, and his assured political future, but that first night was all it took.  Jon had turned the tables on him -- their rhythm like a jazz improvisation, with Jon scatting like hell."

From seductive South Beach to indulgent Key West, Ocean Court is rich with conflict, danger and courtroom drama.
