Implied Consent

by Keenan Powell

When a tearful young woman appears at Maureen Gould’s office with a tale of workplace assault, Maureen agrees to fight for her. Surprise evidence? No problem. Witnesses hiding? Maureen will find them. Ironclad agreements? No such thing. But when the defendant, a Hollywood mogul, hires Maureen’s estranged father, long buried secrets pull her back into his dark orbit. Maureen must steel herself to protect her client even as the past threatens to destroy her marriage and her practice.

As she fights for justice, doors are slammed in her face, witnesses refuse to talk, a third witness is murdered, and her office is ransacked. She doesn’t know who she can trust anymore. Maureen suspects her investigator is leaking information to The Duke. She sets a trap to catch him and her suspicions are confirmed. She confronts the investigator and is about to fire him when he is killed in a drive-by shooting in front of her.

Someone is trying to silence her. But Maureen knows that secrecy binds the shamed to the guilty. There is only one way to save her client, and herself: Tell the truth.
