Death Eligible (A Darcy Cole Novel, #3)
Death Eligible is the story of two death penalty cases.
Both of them involve rape and murder, and though the defendants are as different from each other as night and day, the similarities of the two cases are uncanny. As Darcy Cole defends both men, the twists and turns their cases take as they proceed to the courtroom make for compelling and electrifying reading.
Darcy Cole's life has become a bit more complicated than it was in previous books, both by his caseload and by the fact that his love interest, Dr. Amy Wagner, is about to turn fifty. This milestone makes her want to celebrate with more than cake and ice cream, and she plans to travel to a developing country to help sick and starving people in need. Darcy is afraid for her safety, but also afraid for their relationship. Where does he fit in?
Meanwhile, a young attorney with an odd nickname joins Darcy's team and seems to fit right in. A crisis in one of the cases threatens to undermine his confidence, but Darcy comes to his rescue and teaches him an important lesson. Just as in his previous two Darcy Cole novels—The Advocate and Plea Bargain—Larry Axelrood skillfully brings the complex threads of several plots together to form an exciting, riveting courtroom drama with generous doses of lightness and humor.
Fans of Darcy Cole and new readers alike will not be able to put down Death Eligible until its thrilling conclusion.
