Coming this Spring!

Heel Turn


At the age of twenty-three, Sheila Hampton was arrested, tried and convicted for murdering her husband, wealthy Derek Hampton. Now, twenty-five years later and with her conviction overturned, Sheila is released from prison, only to be arrested days later for murdering the prosecutor, now retired, who originally sent her away.

Attorney Bernie Lyman has a personal interest in her case, and he hires Sam Quinton to help prove his client’s innocence. But as Sam digs farther into the case, he begins to ferret out the truth of what happened to Sheila and Derek a quarter century before and finds himself wondering why Sheila’s former in-laws are so determined to get in his way.
