Jacquie Johnsonabout this book: Investigative journalist Ryder Prescott was her childhood love. Alexis Winters was the one he never forgot. When the investigative journalist accuses Alexis's client of wrongdoing, she must decide how far she will go to defend truth and justice. Is she willing to sacrifice life, liberty and the possibility of love?
Alexis Winters believes in the legal system, so she's thrilled when her first job as an attorney pairs her with Jon Elliott, Chicago's powerhouse litigator. When she learns that Jon plays by his own rulebook, instead of the one she learned in law school, Alexis faces an unexpected dilemma, how to balance her profession's code of conduct with her own beliefs about right and wrong. Unwilling to compromise her values but not wanting to risk her career, Alexis investigates one of Jon's clients, who she fears is engaging in wrongful conduct, on her own. After witnessing a horrible crime, she seeks outside help from Ryder Prescott, an old friend. Together they unravel a web of deceit that crosses international borders, political parties, and socio-economic classes.
Once upon a time, the author practiced law, labor and employment law to be exact, just like her heroine Alexis Winters. The similarity pretty much ends there, but her career did give her the idea for Dilemma. Although she never faced Alexis's situation, on more than one occasion she left a legal proceeding wondering whether her profession's rules were protecting the right party.
