Assistant DA, Jenna James took an oath to uphold the law, administer justice, deter crime and ensure the safety of the community. Her job isn’t easy, but it has always been black and white—criminals versus victims. Now she is the victim, and the very system she’s fought to uphold is suddenly corrupt, the lines between good and bad are blurred and her world has turned upside down. She’s always known that world existed—a world of power so immense that a single phone call can result in people disappearing or political offices being vacated, a world where doctors are available at a moment’s notice. She’s never been part of that world—never wanted to be. The body count is rising, and unless she finds proof beyond a reasonable doubt against a corrupt former federal judge, and a notorious criminal defense attorney, it will continue to rise.
New York Times Bestselling Author, M. A. Comley, states:
I had the pleasure of reading an ARC of Linda S Prather’s new legal thriller, Beyond A Reasonable Doubt which is available on pre-order now and due for release on April 17th. Not long now!
I believe I have to be Linda’s number one fan, to me her writing is seamless and flows wonderfully. Her ability to involve the reader in her stories is second to none.
After reading Beyond A Reasonable Doubt – the first book in a new series of legal thrillers starring Assistant DA Jenna James – I have to say this is Linda’s best book yet.
Jenna is a kick-ass Assistant DA caught up with a corrupt family headed up by of all people a former judge. Jenna gets entangled in a messy family web of deceit in which an innocent member of the family has been imprisoned for twenty-five years. When a member of the young man’s family is killed in an accident, he is released from prison into Jenna’s custody to attend the funeral, and that’s where this fast-paced, non-stop thriller really begins.
You’ll love all the twists and turns and the convincing characters, both good and bad, in this compelling, taut thriller.
New York Times and USA Today bestselling Kentucky author living in Lexington, Kentucky. I have always had a penchant for things a little outside the norm. I saw my first “ghost” when I was five years old, and I’ve spent a lifetime trying to understand that vision. Was it real? And if it was, why? I became a paranormal investigator and love old houses that go bump in the night. I can often be found in old cemeteries just hanging out.
I’ve studied metaphysics, including the areas of touch healing, dream analysis, meditation and hypnosis. The power of the mind has always fascinated me. When reading I love books that allow me to travel around the world without ever leaving home. As an author my greatest desire is to create characters that readers can love and hate, laugh and cry with, and stories that allow the reader to spend a few hours in sheer entertainment.
The Jacody Ives series was my first attempt to combine my love of true mystery and the paranormal. The Catherine Mans’ series continues and expands that combination, delving into the darker side of the power of the mind.
Having served with the judicial system for more than 20 years, I wanted to try a legal thriller. Beyond a Reasonable Doubt is the first in the Jenna James Legal Thrillers, and Book 2 is well on it’s say.
