Taylor Lockwood juggles twin careers as a struggling jazz musician in seedy Manhattan clubs and a paralegal at the genteel Wall Street law firm of Hubbard, White & Willis. When a multimillion-dollar promissory note is stolen from his office, Mitchell Reece, a young trial lawyer, desperately enlists her aid to save both his career and, very possibly, the firm itself.
Taylor agrees, intrigued by both the brilliant attorney and the offbeat assignment. As she plays detective, she learns that beneath the Victorian facades of the firm and its partners are simmering caldrons of dark secrets that increasingly blur the line between business and pleasure, and life and death.
Jeffery Wilds Deaver gives us a shocking look at the stratosphere of New York business and society in this stylish book, which is filled with the wholly real characters, right-on dialogue, and unpredictable plot twists he's known for. Its gut-wrenching ending is more shocking than Presumed Innocent's.
The nonstop action in Mistress of Justice moves from tension-filled courtrooms to East Village performance spaces, from Hell's Kitchen bordellos to lavish country homes and hushed Midtown clubs where careers, and even lives, are manipulated like so many business deals.
The firms, the families and their money may date from the last century, but the ambition and greed are totally up to date and mean nothing but danger for a young upstart like Taylor Lockwood--danger in more ways than she can guess.

display_descriptionFrom the bestselling author of the Bone Collector novels, soon to be an NBC series • "Loaded with character and action and a very devious plot, Mistress of Justice is a top-notch legal thriller."—Mystery Lovers News
Taylor Lockwood spends her days working as a paralegal in one of New York's preeminent Wall Street law firms and her nights playing jazz piano anyplace she can. But the rhythm of her life is disrupted when attorney Mitchell Reece requests her help in locating a stolen document that could cost him not only the multimillion-dollar case he's defending but his career as well. Eager to get closer to this handsome, brilliant, and very private man, 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 kno—including a plentitude of secrets damaging enough to smash careers and dangerous enough to push someone to commit murder. Yet who is capable of going to that extreme? With her life on the line, Taylor is about to learn the lethal answer. . . .
"The characters are well drawn, the plot is fast paced, and the writing avoids totally the usual trappings of blockbusterdom. . . . An intelligently written thriller."—Booklist
