Best-Selling and Award-Winning Author
After a multi-year absence, Matt Royal returns to the courtroom. Reluctantly.
Matt Royal is going back to the courtroom. He has agreed to defend his good friend and wife of Longboat Key’s Police Chief. Abby Lester has been charged with the murder of Nate Bannister, an unlikeable, shady character. He was found shot to death in his downtown Sarasota condo and the evidence points to Abby as the killer.
Matt cannot refuse Abby’s pleas for help, despite having retired from the practice of law several years earlier. Now, he must face a hotshot prosecuting attorney with a record of twenty-two wins and zero losses in murder trials.
As he begins to investigate, Matt finds that nothing is what it seems. Police, politicians, academics, real estate moguls and other powerful forces are tied together in a cauldron of issues that Matt must untangle to get at the truth. Can he rekindle his legal skills and outwit the prosecution pitted against him? Matt knows he must, as the life of his friend hangs in the balance.
Perfect for fans of Michael Connelly’s Lincoln Lawyer
While all of the novels in the Matt Royal Mystery Series stand on their own and can be read in any order, the publication sequence is:
"Witty, smart, and highly entertaining. An intriguing mix of hopes and fears that combine into a pulse-pounding treat." —Steve Berry, New York Times best-selling author
"Take a tough female cop, a witty and charming retired lawyer, toss in a host of quirky Floridians, and, oh yeah, a murder that on the surface makes no sense, and you have Terry Griffin’s Found. Tightly written and sprinkled with humor, this fun and fast-paced read should not be missed." —D. P. Lyle, Macavity Award-winning and Edgar- and Agatha-nominated author
