Publisher's Summary

For Sabre Orin Brown, life is good; she has it all...or would have, if only she could solve the mysterious disappearance of her brother. The search for her brother and her career as a juvenile-court attorney collide when she defends a nine-year-old whose father will go to any length to obtain custody.
Sabre finds herself immersed in a case with too many unanswered questions. Her quest for the truth takes her coast to coast and five years into the past. Confronted with mysterious clues and strange occurrences, Sabre is threatened by someone wanting to make her suffer the unbearable anguish of losing everything - including her life.
As Sabre's passion to find the answers intensifies, she discovers a twisted history of desperation, deceit, and revenge. And she discovers how obscure and treacherous the truth can be.
The Advocate, a legal-suspense murder mystery, is the first book in The Advocate Series. Three characters continue throughout the series, Sabre Orin Brown, defense attorney; her investigator, J.P. Torn; and her colleague Bob Clark. The Advocate is followed by The Advocate's Betrayal
, The Advocate's Conviction, The Advocate's Dilemma, and The Advocate's Ex Parte.

Great story !

If you could sum up The Advocate in three words, what would they be?

Exciting, emotional, interesting

Who was your favorite character and why?

Saber, she just keeps going and does what is right.

What about Summer Rona’s performance did you like?

Her voice was soothing.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

If time allowed I could have listened to the entire book in one sitting.

Any additional comments?

I began the book with a sinking feeling, I did not want to listen to a sad, twisted tale of child abuse. I quickly realized that this would not be a disgusting story, playing on horror for the sake of horror but a well written story of genuine friendship, a blend of mystery, humor, and sadness to produce a story that kept me interested and did not end as I suspected.
