Attorney Kay Havelin takes on the first major solo case of her career, defending a man accused of murdering his wife. But someone is trying to intimidate her, and a string of personal attacks shake up her world. Kay has to figure out who is out to get her before everything she's worked for gets destroyed.
Police officer Reese Milo suspects Kay Havelin is hiding something sinister. Her name keeps popping up in murder investigations and Milo needs to find out why. But he's been warned to leave the fiery attorney alone, so he'll have to figure out her secrets quickly or risk losing his badge.
More mystery, suspense, danger, threats and surprises. We still don't know the full story behind Kay. Threats against Kay have gotten dangerous. Daniel is not showing any sign he is grieving the death of his wife. This intriguing read held my attention from beginning to end. We do find out a little bit more about Milo. Another cliffhanger that still has so many unanswered questions.
Wickedly cruel to the reader
Kay, a new lawyer, has one case under her belt and is working to build her client case, while Reese, a detective turned crime scene investigator, is settling into his new role with the NOPD and still unsure how to process the things he learned in Cruel. As the story progresses intimidation starts, another old connection reaches out, and just thinking they know the culprit may not be enough to keep them safe. W.L. Knightly is wickedly cruel to the reader in Intent. The shadows of doubt are cast and lines are drawn in this book, leaving the reader once again holding a bag of possible outcomes that are probably untrue.
I received a free copy of the book from the author. I had the opportunity to review or not.
