Instant #1 New York Times bestseller!
A young attorney tries her first case . . . and it's Murder One in a legal thriller from the world's #1 bestselling writer.

Ruby Bozarth, a newcomer to Rosedale, Mississippi, is also fresh to the Mississippi Bar--and to the docket of Circuit Judge Baylor, who taps Ruby as defense counsel in a racially charged felony.
The murder of a woman from one of the town's oldest families has Rosedale's upper crust howling for blood, and the prosecutor is counting on Ruby's inexperience to help him deliver a swift conviction. Ruby's client is a college football star who has returned home after a career-ending injury, and she is determined to build a defense that will stick. She finds help in unexpected quarters from Suzanne, a hard-charging attorney armed to the teeth, and Shorty, a diner cook who knows more than he lets on.
Ruby never belonged to the country-club set, but once she nearly married into it. As news breaks of a second murder, Ruby's ex-fiancé, Lee Greene, shows up on her doorstep--a Southern gentleman in need of a savior. As lurid, intertwining investigations unfold, no one in Rosedale can be trusted, especially the twelve men and women impaneled on the jury. They may be hiding the most incendiary secret of all.

Ruby Bozarth was a new lawyer in Mississippi, she is immediately assigned by the judge in a racially charged murder case. A woman of Rosedale's upper crust family was murdered and the black waiter was being charged. He had been seeing her and she had texted him to meet her, but she was dead when he got there. Ruby finds help from Suzanne Greene, a lawyer related to her ex boyfriend. Also the owner of a diner. After sectioning the jury, Ruby was worried about juror number 3. And there was reason, he was the one that killed the victim. The next case was about her ex accused of killing a black call girl. He did not remember anything. Result, his friend from college had set him up because of an incident in college where his friend was kicked out because he brought a black girl to a dance. It was the same girl as the one murdered. Ruby and Suzanne became partners and she started seeing the owner of the diner.
