When a scandalous divorce trial interferes with a ruthless killer, can one tough lawyer find the truth before she becomes the next victim?

Kenzi Rivera is classy, compassionate, and ready to buck the status quo. Sick of being patronized by judges and undervalued by her own firm, the no-nonsense Hispanic attorney boldly takes on a high-profile divorce for a tech-world “throuple.” But the case turns toxic when leaked nudes of her client go viral and ruin her reputation.

Determined to help this woman already battling a debilitating neurological disorder, Kenzi is caught off-guard when her new client’s partner is strangled. With damning evidence massing at an alarming rate, vindicating her troubled client may be impossible.

Can Kenzi discover whose hands are covered in blood before the jury brings back a guilty verdict? Can she make this right before the killer makes her the next target?

Exposed is the compelling second book in the Splitsville Legal Thriller Series. If you like dark courtroom drama and tense mysteries, then you’ll love William Bernhardt’s powerful page-turner.
