Mistress of Justice
DEAVER. DANGEROUSLY GOOD.
Taylor Lockwood spends her days working as a paralegal in one of New York's pre-eminent Wall Street law firms and her nights playing jazz piano anywhere she can.
But the rhythm of her life is disrupted when attorney Mitchell Reece asks her to find a stolen document that could cost him the multimillion dollar case he's defending... and his career as well.
Taylor signs on... only to find that as she delves deeper and deeper into what goes on behind closed doors at Hubbard, White & Willis, she uncovers more than she wants to know - including secrets damaging enough to smash careers and dangerous enough to kill for.
But who is capable of going to that extreme? With her life on the line, Taylor is about to learn the lethal answer...
'If you want thrills, Deaver is your man' Guardian
Taylor Lockwood, jazz-playing paralegal heroine of Mistress of Justice, is one of the smart, sassy heroines in whom Jeffery Deaver specialised before he invented the austere paralysed criminalist Lincoln Rhyme. Like Rune in Manhattan is My Beat, Taylor is clever, but not quite as good at things as she thinks she is--she trusts a few too many people and lets her preconceptions get in her way; Deaver has always done a nice line in the detective who gets things wrong quite a lot of the time. Taylor is brought in by Reece, a Wall Street hot-shot, to work out who has stolen a crucial document, and where they have hidden it. Along the way, she uncovers most of the dirty little secrets of the partners of the firm and finds herself having to exercise judgement about each of them; she has refused to follow her father into the law because of her music, but she finds herself caught up in justice all the same.
