What Comes Around – An Allison Parker Mystery
Tenacious young attorney Allison Parker leaps into another gripping murder investigation in What Comes Around, the second book in this riveting legal mystery series set in Fort Charles, Alabama.
The story finds private investigator Frank Martin inviting Allison to join him once again, since they’d made such a great team before. Frank’s been hired by Sheriff Toby Trowbridge to help track down clues to the case of a dismembered body that was discovered in a shed near the interstate.
While Allison mulls over her decision, her law partner, David Jackson, is visited by a well-to-do stranger named Jefferson Boudreaux seeking help in contesting the will of a very wealthy local woman he claims is his birth mother.
Intrigued, David takes the case, while Allison can’t help but agree to Frank’s offer, despite her busy workload—and her husband’s concerns. Readers won’t be able to put down this compelling story as the mysterious death quickly escalates into a race to stop a brutal sex crime killer from striking again.
A child of the South with a long history as an attorney, author Adair Sanders has crafted yet another compelling legal thriller with the resolute Allison Parker as the star.
About ADAIR SANDERS (Asheville, North Carolina Author)
Adair Sanders was born in Chattanooga, Tennessee in an era where girls of a certain social class were expected to marry well and never work. Exhibiting her penchant for being contrary, Adair left the confines of an all-girl education to pursue a psychology degree and a law degree from the University of Tennessee. For the next thirty years - give or take a few - Adair enjoyed disproving the agenda her parents had designed for her, becoming the first female member of a men's dining club in Knoxville, Tennessee and then the first female partner in an old-line law firm in Jackson, Mississippi all the while, more or less successfully, balancing a home life of husband and children. Yes, honey, you can have it all.
After the death of her father in 2007, Adair felt called to write the story of her family's generational dysfunction. Although still practicing law, Adair spent her evenings writing, and thus was birthed her first book, a memoir, aptly entitled Biologically Bankrupt. Three years later, having exited her firm in early retirement (an act which greatly peeved many of her male partners), Adair decided to take a dialogue writing class at the John C. Campbell Folk School in Brasstown, NC. Low and behold, two days into the week-long class, Allison Parker, trial lawyer extraordinaire, made her appearance known to Adair, and the rest is history.
As Sick As Our Secrets, An Allison Parker Mystery, was released at the end of 2010, inviting the reader to follow the spunky Alabama lawyer as she uncovers a delicious trail of sex, blackmail and murder.
