From an internationally recognized law professor comes the third
legal thriller in an exciting mystery series, the Clarkeston
Chronicles. Courting Death finds Melanie Wilkerson (from Cotton,
book two of the Clarkeston Chronicles) and Arthur Hughes working
uncomfortably together in the chambers of a famous federal judge.
While Melanie neglects her duties as a law clerk to investigate the
mysterious death of a young woman in the courthouse five years
earlier, Arthur wades through the horrific habeas corpus appeals of
two prisoners: an infamous serial killer and a pathetic child
murder. Melanie, a Georgia native who returns from law school in
the Northeast, hoped to establish a legal reputation that will
eclipse her beauty pageant queen past, which she is now desperate
to disown. Arthur is a bright but naive Midwesterner who is rapidly
seduced by the small Georgia college town of Clarkeston which, to
his surprise, comes with an exotic and attractive landlady. The
cohort of federal court clerks is completed by Phil Jenkins, a
Stanford graduate from San Francisco who tries his best to balance
the personalities of his volatile colleagues. Living and working in
bucolic Clarkeston comes with a price. In Courting Death, Arthur,
Melanie, and Phil are confronted with the extremes of human
mortality, both in and outside the legal system, in ways that they
could never have expected or prepared for. Skyhorse Publishing, as
