Mistress of Justice (Mass Market Paperbound)
Taylor Lockwood spends her days working as a paralegal in one of New York's preeminent Wall Street law firms and her nights playing jazz piano anyplace she can.

Yet who is capable of going to that extreme? With her life on the line, Taylor is about to learn the lethal answer....
