Overview

b>She's a prosecutor chasing demons. He's wrestling them. Will they find proof of innocence? Or will the demons win?

Every prosecutor has one – the case that won't let go, long after the verdict. Maggie Frye's has just jumped from nightmare to worst-case reality.

Four and a half years ago, she served as special prosecutor in a remote mountain county in Commonwealth of Virginia v. J.D. Carson. Shaking off echoes of the family tragedy that drove her to be a prosecutor, she did her damnedest, despite cards stacked against her. The verdict? Not guilty. A moment that rattled her in ways she's done her best to bury.

Except now another young woman has been killed in chillingly similar circumstances.

Either Maggie prosecuted the right man and got the wrong verdict or she prosecuted the wrong man and got the right verdict. Either way, a murderer went free to strike again.

And there is J.D. Carson -- not only still in town, but far too close to the investigation for Maggie's comfort.

But Maggie's going to be part of this part of this investigation, too. Because this time she'll get it right ... no matter what it costs her.

NOTE FROM PATRICIA McLINN TO CAUGHT DEAD IN WYOMING READERS: Proof of Innocence and its sequel, Price of Innocence, do not have nearly as much humor as the Caught Dead mysteries, though there is some. (I just can't help myself.) They're a bit grittier and darker ... though not in the deep end of grit and dark. I strongly recommend you read the preview to be sure this is something you would enjoy.

Proof of Innocence by Patricia McLinn Prosecutor Maggie Frye is determined to do her job and protect as many women as she can from being hurt... She follows the evidence...not her gut feelings. Almost five years after losing a case—letting a murderer roam free—she gets a second chance. Another murder. Same town. Same place. Same man lives there again. Talk about tunnel vision...she has it. This time around, Maggie is starting from the ground up. The new sheriff wants her help in finding out if the murders could be the same person. In her mind...they are and she already has her verdict on who it is. But...could she be wrong? Wow! What a page-turner. I had so many people I suspected of the crimes. This was a great suspense with a touch of romance. The author added several different point-of-views from the characters, which added to the mystery of who-done-it, I thought. **Sensual content and language
