Good Lieutenant
by E.J. Copperman

LA lawyer Sandy Moss comes to falsely accused lieutenant Trench’s aid in this final instalment of the critically acclaimed legal cozy mystery series.

While settling into her new home in Los Angeles together with her boyfriend and TV star Patrick McNabb, attorney Sandy Moss suddenly receives a phone call from the Central Detention Center. She never would have thought annoyingly formal and rule-respecting Detective Lieutenant K.C. Trench to be on the other side of the call – as a suspect of murder at that!

Being good at his job but not well-liked in his department, Trench is accused of killing a fellow LA police officer whom he openly despised and threatened. Nonetheless Sandy takes on the case of her fellow associate. She is certain that Trench can’t be the killer. It seems like someone is trying to pin the murder on him, but who and why? And who is the actual killer?

Sandy has a tricky case on her hands with all the evidence pointing at Trench as the murderer, but one thing is clear, she will help the stoic lieutenant, even if it puts her in unmentionable danger . . .

Think Suits with a touch of romance: This witty cozy mystery is perfect for fans of classic courtroom dramas: Loveable, streetwise heroine Sandy “could give Perry Mason a run for his money” (Kirkus Reviews).
