In Justice in June, it's Miami in June. It's raining, it's pouring, but the life of criminal defense attorney Mary Magruder Katz is anything but boring--especially when she gets caught up in a whirlwind of three different cases. Three cases. One Mary. One torrential downpour of turmoil. Can she weather the storm? Ride out the cold front that settles over her once-hot romance? Salvage what remains of her--and her clients'--reputations? Mary Magruder Katz is about to find herself in the eye of storm, because this month's forecast calls for trouble.
