Abstract:

The jailhouse lawyer: A young lawyer takes on the judge who is destroying her hometown--and ends up in jail herself. In picture-perfect Erva, Alabama, the most serious crimes are misdemeanors. Speeding tickets. Shoplifting. Contempt of court. Then why is the jail so crowded? And why are so few prisoners released? There's only one place to learn the truth behind these incriminating secrets. Sometimes the best education a lawyer can get is a short stretch of hard time.

Power of attorney: When she learns her father has Alzheimer's, Leah Randall leaves the law firm of Garrison, Danforth, and Shook in Chicago to return to Bassville, Arkansas. Everyone in Bassville thought Amber Lynn Travis was dead; when she returns someone is chasing her, but she doesn't know who. When Amber asks Leah to help her settle an estate, Leah is caught up in a case of abuse and sexual slavery. -- adapted from perusal of book
