WHEN BEAUTIFUL, JADED ATTORNEY RUBY RANDOLPH IS ARRESTED FOR KILLING HER SNAKE OF A LAWYER HUSBAND, NOBODY BLAMES HER—EXCEPT THE COP WHO LOVES HER.
“Only a lawyer [like Claire Matturro] would know the inner workings of a law firm. Only a great writer can make it so thrilling. Privilege is a great read.”–James O. Born, NYT bestselling author of crime and thriller novels.
“Florida’s sun and sand aren’t the only sources of heat in Claire Matturro’s legal thriller, Privilege(Moonshine Cove Publishing, 2019). The ethics of a law firm are fried to a crisp in this fast-paced story featuring the beautiful Ruby Randolph. … Privilege is a compelling story, with twists that keep you turning the pages until the very end.”–Tallahassee Democrat
Ruby Randolph is a street-smart lawyer with a dark past who finally makes it big, but she’s snared in an abusive marriage. Privilege has its costs.
When her husband’s shocking murder sets her free, Ruby vows to keep it that way at any cost. But when her former lover shows up at her door as the police detective investigating the case, freedom gets tricky. There’s still heat between them, but can she trust him?
Hank Rider, an honorable, world-weary cop, knows better than to get emotionally involved in a case. But he can’t forget what he once felt for Ruby as they re-ignite their steamy affair. When he discovers evidence against her, the line between duty and passion gets blurred, fast.
As the investigation spirals out of his control, Hank struggles through a long list of suspects who wanted Ruby’s husband dead—including Ruby. A bankrupted law firm, a busted client-attorney privilege, an ex-con out for revenge, a corpse in an orange grove, and Ruby’s own shady history conspire to make everyone a suspect.
