Night Justice: A Judge Willa Carson Mystery (Hunt for Justice Series Book 11) by [Capri, Diane]She killed a man. Or did she?

USA Today bestselling Judge Willa Carson returns in this fast-paced mystery filled with great characters, humor, and more twists and turns than a roller coaster.

It could happen to anyone.

Driving home after a long, exhausting work week, Judge Willa Carson is horrified when she hits a man with her car.

She jumps out to help, but it’s too late. He’s not breathing and she can’t revive him.

Famous Restaurant Owner’s Wife Kills Pedestrian is the top click bait headline for every citizen journalist with a smartphone video looking to make it big on social media.

But is it true?

Privately, the coroner says Evan Hayden was as good as dead from an overdose of toxic heroin when he lunged in front of Willa’s car. But the scandal mongers don’t know or care about the legal nuances.

Relentless gawkers and paid protesters swarm George’s Place and drag Judge Willa’s reputation into the gutter, where gleeful power brokers who want her gone for good seize their chance.

Mercilessly pursued by the vultures, she’s forced to abandon her work and flee her home to uncover the truth.

As Willa burrows deeper into the mystery of Evan Hayden’s death amid too-good-to-be-true sports celebrities, savage money managers, and upscale heroin addicts, she discovers too many motives for murder.

Can she unearth what really happened that dark and rainy night, restore her reputation, save George’s restaurant, and get her world back onto its axis?

Or is Willa’s life as Tampa’s youngest and most flamboyant federal judge over and done?

If you like to read a twisty, clever “who done it” that will have you scratching your head until the end is revealed, Night Justice and Judge Willa Carson are for you.

Is her magic strong enough to stop a killer?

On her first assignment as a demon-hunting witch, Alma was unable to kill. Now broke and unemployed at twenty-six, she lives in Silverpool, a remote town in a redwood forest north of San Francisco, where she sells magic-infused jewelry and tries to live a drama-free life.

When fairies draw her to the dead body of her ex-boyfriend, she must defend herself and the hidden power in Silverpool from an influx of supernatural trouble. The only way to make peace—and stay alive—is to find the killer.

Drawing upon years of formal magical training she’d rather forget, and using other abilities she’d like to keep secret, Alma goes up against bloodthirsty fae, a dangerously charming demon, her infamous father, and other ambitious witches with agendas of their own.

This time, an inability to kill might be not just the end of her job, but of her life…  (Amazon)
