About the Book 12 Months to Live

Criminal attorney Jane Smith, tough as nails, has received a terminal diagnosis and doesn't have much time. Is her own client trying to kill her first? Jane Smith is an ex-NYPD beat cop, indefatigable private investigator, undefeated defense attorney. She’s hip-deep in the murder trial of the century. Actually, her charmless client might’ve committed several murders. She’s fallen in love with a wonderful guy. And an equally wonderful dog, a mutt.

But Jane has just months to live. Unless she’s murdered before her expiration date.
