Sam McRae Mystery #2:


Least Wanted


Can a lawyer defend two clients of murder before becoming the next victim?

The second novel, Least Wanted, was a Kindle bestseller in the US and the UK.

Stephanie Ann “Sam” McRae’s busy, but orderly life as a Maryland lawyer takes a chaotic turn when two clients are accused of murder. A poor, black girl is accused of killing her mother. A young man suspected of embezzlement is accused of murdering his boss. The cases collide in a bizarre way involving girl gangs and computer pornography.

Sam ventures into the heart of DC’s suburban ghettos to find answers. A maniacal killer who’ll do anything to hide them stalks her. After a nearly disastrous confrontation, Sam must do business on the run. As the body count grows, Sam races to learn the truth and clear her clients before she becomes the next victim.


“Fast-paced and brimming with dark, twisting plot turns, Least Wanted will keep crime and mystery buffs off balance and guessing until the very end.”

– J.T. Cummins, author of COBBLESTONES
