The Criminal Justice System Laid Bare
When the 10th richest man in the world is brutally murdered—along with his prized Borzoi dogs in a luxurious East Hampton beach house—only one man is suspected of committing the crime: Juan Suarez, a handsome, charismatic, and illegal Mexican immigrant who worked for the victim.
Now, renowned trail lawyer Raquel Rematti must take on the defense of the man the media has dubbed “The Blade of the Hamptons.” Not only must she take on one of the wealthiest families in the country, she must also protect Suarez and herself from ruthless people bent on lethal revenge—all while straddling the dangerous line between concerned involvement and forbidden passion for her client.
Set in one of the most exclusive resorts in the world, The Borzoi Killings mixes all the twists of a sensational trial with all the “dirty little secrets” of the elite Hampton socialite lifestyles—from lavish parties, drugs, and sex to corruption and dangerous secret cartels.
Perfect for fans of John Grisham and Nelson DeMille
