Sheila Harrison Grant is the first African-American woman ever nominated to the federal bench in Cleveland. But when her 13-year-old daughter, Olivia, shares a family secret with a well-meaning guidance counselor, she sets the wheels in motion to feed a partisan senate's opposition, threatening her mother's position...and both of their lives.
Once an ambitious, young law student with promise, Casey Cort made the mistake of crossing a classmate from a prominent and influential family. Now she works as an unfulfilled, faceless cog in a broken legal system.
When fate gives Casey a second chance, she has to set aside her lack of faith in justice and find the strength to fight for those with nowhere else to turn.
In this first novel of the Casey Cort series, Sylvie Fox--a former trial lawyer in Cleveland--weaves a tale that blends the best of today's top legal thrillers with the heart and soul of women's fiction in a story ripped from real-world headlines.
Losing the most high-profile case of her career ironically made Casey Cort a winner. Well-heeled clients now knock on her door, and Tom Brody, her rich ex-boyfriend, wants her back. But entry into the upper echelon comes at a price. The newest assistant United States attorney, Miles Siegel, has set his sights on nailing a public figure he believes to be corrupt: Cuyahoga County Juvenile Court judge Eamon Brody.

Miles Siegel hopes solving and prosecuting the case of the 'women in the container' will redeem him in the eyes of his colleagues.
