Publisher's Summary

Attorney Sabre Brown is summoned into Judge Lawrence Mitchell chambers for an ex parte hearing. When the judge attempts to discuss one of her cases, she refuses to listen without proper counsel present.
Later that evening, Judge Mitchell is murdered.
Sabre's shock at his death is only surpassed by an attempt on the life of Dr. Carolina Heller, a psychologist she employs on a regular basis. Sabre now fears for her own life.
Sabre enlists her private eye JP, and they begin to comb and scrutinize her cases, searching for connections between the two crimes. But Sabre's life is in danger from someone much closer to her.
Sabre and JP's roads diverge. While JP infiltrates a twisted world of greed and corruption, Sabre is caught up in a domestic crisis fueled by obsession. As each is forced to fight their own battles, the question soon becomes, can they find a way to save one another?

What about Laurel Schroeder’s performance did you like?

Laurel gives a wonderful performance. I would be more apt to chose a book if narrated by Laurel


Any additional comments?

When Sabre is called into the judges chambers to speak with the judge alone she knows it's against the code of ethics and requests another lawyers presence. When she attempts to bring in a witness the judge becomes irate and throws her out. Later that night the judge is killed by a hit and run driver.

Sabre's teenage client is accused of murder and Sobs is not sure he is innocent. But it is her duty to defend him anyway. She hits a few bumps along the way.
Reluctant to turn to JP for help because his former wife is staying with him she feels she must do most of the work herself. And with a new man in her life she is a very busy lawyer.
In spite of the light hearted moments and the mystery of the case the author addresses the problem of domestic violence in a real but yet nongraphic way
For me, Teresa Burrell's books are like potato chips, you can't stop with just one. I hope that the author keeps the series coming. I must confess I've got a little crush on JP, and I want my own Bob.

One of the best of the series!

This is Book 5 of the 7 book series. The series does not need to be read in order. The protagonist is Sabre Brown who is an attorney and child advocate in San Diego. The Advocates ExParte has action and suspense as well as interesting personal relationships. Narration is so-so, but a much better narrator handles Books 6 and 7.
