Moment of Truth
Mira, January, 2002.
Paperback, 400 pages.
Criminal attorney Kate Logan has just left a high-paying job at a big law firm and is slowly building a practice of her own. But new cases seem hard to come by -- until the day a young woman stops her in the park and begs Kate to represent her fiance, Todd Buchanan, who is wanted for the murder of his wife, Molly. The case is a high-profile one, and Kate thinks Todd is innocent. There's just one problem; Molly Buchanan was her boyfriend Mitch's beloved sister. And Mitch thinks Todd is guilty as hell. Todd is currently living under an assumed name with his fiance, Jessica, in the South of France. Kate takes the case, although it causes friction with Mitch. The more she investigates Molly's murder, the more she becomes convinced that she is on the trail of a ruthless murderer who met Molly in an online sex chat room, and that the killer will stop at nothing to keep his identity a secret: including killing Molly and her beloved daughter, Allison.
Moment of Truth is an edge of your seat romantic thriller that takes readers from the cyber chat rooms of the Internet, where any kind of sexual perverted fantasy can be fulfilled, to the sun-drenched beaches of the South of France. Christiane Heggan has created a wonderful heroine in Kate Logan -- a single mother who has to fight for her career and to keep her daughter on the right path (no easy trick when her ex-husband's girlfriend can offer a no-limit credit card and exotic vacations to the star struck girl.) With breathless suspense, an intriguing plot and vivid characters, Moment of Truth is a sure winner.
