Watch the launch party for Val Bruech's outstanding debut novel, Judicious Murder.
Bruech thanks her friends and family for their support and gives a dramatic reading of the first chapter.
The book follows a fictional defense attorney, Susan Marshfield, as she investigates the murder of her friend and colleague, a judge who was bludgeoned to death in his chambers.
Bruech was a real-life defense attorney, and her vivid recall of that world gives Marshfield and a delightful assortment of cops, crooks and creeps a depth that is uncommon on the mystery shelves.
Judicious Murder from Smoking Gun Press is available at better booksellers and at Amazon.
