     EXTREME INDIFFERENCE 
             STEPHANIE KANE

College student, Amy Lynch, escaped from the mountain cabin where she was being held.  She was naked and handcuffed.  She died one week later without her attacker being named. 

The handcuffs were traced back to Judge Glenn Ballard.  Is this possible?  The judge had an untarnished reputation.  As soon as Amy died, the charges against the judge became murder in the first degree under circumstances of extreme indifference. 

Judge Ballard could have asked one of the top lawyers in the country to defend him but he did not.  Instead he asked Jackie Flowers one of his former law students.  Jackie, who is dyslexic, was not too keen on accepting his case because at one time Ballard told her she would never make it as a lawyer.  Why would Judge Ballard want Jackie to defend him?

Jackie does accept the case but she knows this will be one of the toughest cases she has had in her career.  Information she discovers through her investigation only supports the guilt of her client.  Jackie also has a few other things going on in her life at the same time.

Is the judge innocent?  Jackie wants to believe he's telling the truth - but is he?

This is an excellent legal thriller.  Stephanie Kane proves once again that she is a very talented writer.  Jackie Flowers is a very interesting character as she comes through as a down to earth, hard working individual with many things going on in her life.  She struggles with her dyslexia but manages to get the job done.  This book will keep you guessing because it has a great plot.  Stephanie shows the readers how creative she is through her great characters.  This one is highly recommended.
