The Advocate's Ex Parte by Teresa BurrellAttorney Sabre Brown is summoned into Judge Lawrence Mitchell chambers for an ex parte hearing. When the judge attempts to discuss one of her cases, she refuses to listen without proper counsel present.

Later that evening, Judge Mitchell is murdered.

Sabre’s shock at his death is only surpassed by an attempt on the life of Dr. Carolina Heller, a psychologist she employs on a regular basis. Sabre now fears for her own life.

Sabre enlists her private eye JP, and they begin to comb and scrutinize her cases, searching for connections between the two crimes. But Sabre’s life is in danger from someone much closer to her.

Sabre and JP’s roads diverge. While JP infiltrates a twisted world of greed and corruption, Sabre is caught up in a domestic crisis fueled by obsession. As each is forced to fight their own battles, the question soon becomes, can they find a way to save one another?

THE ADVOCATE’S EX PARTE is available from Audible.


It’s a winner!

Slightly different format, but the same great writing! Maybe better, if that’s possible. I’m not one to give away the story, see the teaser if you want that, but suffice it to say you will not be disappointed when you’ve read this latest Sabre and friends. If you’ve not read any of the prior books don’t hesitate on this one; all Teresa Burrell’s Advocate’s series can easily stand alone as well. I enjoy her style, the characters and the story lines.
