Two rich families. One poor student. Who will win?
Casey Cort is proud of her struggles. She’s the first in her family to graduate from college. After finishing her legal education, she’ll be the first in her family to have a job in an office. Her rags-to-riches tale is her immigrant parent’s dream come true.
Then weeks before law school graduation, Casey discovers that the son of Cleveland’s most admired family—one that saved the city’s football team—is at the center of a cheating scandal. When she blows the whistle not everyone is on her side. The decision to do the right thing turns Casey’s once-solid future to quicksand under her feet. Will Casey pay the price for an offense she didn’t commit?
Disgraced is the next installment in the sensational Casey Cort legal thriller series. If you like strong women, engrossing political intrigue, and stories ripped from the headlines, you’ll love Aime Austin’s page-turning story.
This novel seems as if it should have been part of the first two books of the series. Are they the pages that had to be cut to meet an editor’s arbitrary number?
All it does is rehash, in somewhat more detail, the traumatic results of the heroine’s report of plagiarism. We learn nothing new, except a few additional characters who contributed to her angst, and a deeper look at those who love and help her.
Again, better proofreading should catch some glitches (e.,g., correct use of in/into).
