Two other prominent characters who help Sabre are her private investigator and former military guy, JP Torn, and Sabre’s colleague and close friend, Bob Clark.

It cannot get any harder when it comes to solving murder mysteries when there is such little evidence. In spite of this, Sabre will go to any lengths to defend her friend who stands accused of murdering her very own husband. She delves deeper, uncovering chilling secrets as she goes head first in search of the unknown and elusive killer.

The Advocate’s Conviction
This is the test of her conviction. This is her race against time. This is the third book in the series and it is all fast paced action with a frighteningly believable plot. Stakes are raised higher when Sabre’s clients start disappearing. When innocent children vanish into thin air, someone has to act; act fast. Then, what is with all the recent demonic and occult-like rituals? With JP’s help, will she be able to find her missing clients? Or at least uncover the horrors that might have befallen them? One minute late and the people she’s sworn to protect may not survive their ordeal.
There is vivid imagery and the author pays special attention to detail in this thrilling sequel. This is yet another riveting piece of literature with so much realism. It has got so much that readers can relate to in today’s society. Yet is still retains its edge, the suspense and the gripping mystery of a best selling novel.
The Advocate’s Dilemma
A seemingly great day is tainted when Sabre finds a dead man lying across her desk. Events quickly escalate from bad to worse when the prime suspect named is none other that her best friend and colleague, Bob. Sabre is pressed between a rock and a hard place because the child she’s sworn to keep safe is the only witness that can exonerate her friend. She has to make the right decision; will it be duty to the child or loyalty to her friend? Will their quest for justice come to fruition? At what cost?
There is introduction of new characters like Detective Klakken who obviously does not like JP, nor JP him. There is also a family of four, two minors and their imperfect parents who are drug users. It is this man who is found dead on Sabre’s desk. This is a perfectly woven tale; of mystery and crime and drugs. It unfolds on the horrific arena that is child neglect and the shortcomings of the justice system.

When Judge Mitchell is murdered a few hours after Sabre had been talking to him in his chambers, Sabre is astonished. There is even more reason to worry when a psychologists she regulars employs gets a threat on her life. Could these two unrelated cases be linked? As Sabre and JP try to solve these mysteries, they find themselves alone; each watching their own back as they attempt to fight their demons. Could Sabre’s real danger be lurking nearby?
