Shoot the Lawyer Twice

A Rep and Melissa Pennyworth Mystery by Michael Bowen

Shoot the Lawyer Twice by Michael Bowen

Synopsis (from the publisher): When a frat boy finds himself on trial in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, for piracy on the high seas, lawyer Rep Pennyworth suspects he's being used as an unwitting accomplice in a cheap publicity stunt. Meanwhile his wife Melissa, the professor-half of the couple, gets caught in the middle of a verbal firefight between two colleagues at a literary conference that soon escalates into burglary, theft, jury-tampering, forgery of an explosive papal document from World War II and murder.

Melissa wants to protect a naive undergraduate who might be implicated. But when one of the other suspects makes Melissa a cast-iron alibi, she finds that her search for the truth leads through a maze of gray lies including her own.

Caught between an investigative reporter who's still having flashbacks to 1968, a fellow professor whose acute political correctness masks ruthless academic ambition, an engineer whose father's heart attack may have been either suicide or murder, and a brace of cunning lawyers out for blood, Rep and Melissa have to combine their talents to stay off the casualty list while they figure out what's really going on.
