The Perfect Crime
Jessica Wolfe’s career as a lawyer at the prestigious Sydney Legal was going from strength to strength until her brother, Alistair Wolfe, decided to get involved in illegal human tissue trafficking. Alistair’s subsequent arrest and conviction brought with it a mountain of negative publicity and has damaged Jessica’s prospects of a partnership at the law firm. Despite her brother’s criminality, Jessica is determined to prove her worth by working harder than any other lawyer.
Then she receives a phone call from an old high school flame that will change her life forever…
Mackenzie Callaway is a successful property developer. A former high school football jock, he’s defied everyone’s expectations by scraping his way through college and graduating with a business degree. Sheer hard work, a whole lot of charm and a fair amount of luck has enabled him to accumulate wealth like he’d never dreamed possible. Then his ex-girlfriend’s body is found in a suitcase hidden inside the air conditioning vent in one of his buildings and all hell break’s loose.
The police think they have enough circumstantial evidence to charge Mackenzie with her murder and his perfect life begins to spiral out of control. His only hope is the girl he’s known since high school who just happens to be a damned fine criminal defense lawyer.
Can Jessica and Mackenzie ignore the spark of attraction between them in order to save Mackenzie from being convicted of a crime he didn’t commit…?
