For Sabre Orin Brown, life is good; she has it all…or would have, if only she could solve the mysterious disappearance of her brother. The search for her brother and her career as a Juvenile Court Attorney collide when she defends a nine-year-old whose father will go to any length to obtain custody.
Sabre finds herself immersed in a case with too many unanswered questions. Her quest for the truth takes her coast to coast and five years into the past. Confronted with mysterious clues and strange occurrences, Sabre is threatened by someone wanting to make her suffer the unbearable anguish of losing everything–including her life.
As Sabre’s passion to find the answers intensifies, she discovers a twisted history of desperation, deceit, and revenge. And she discovers how obscure and treacherous the truth can be.
Here’s what the reviewers have to say:
Great book. Looking forward to the next Advocate book. Would recommend this series highly. Excellent reading and writing. Really had a hard time putting book down.
The Advocate is a page turner which will grab you from the beginning. Through the characters, you will experience shock, the courage and bravery of a small child, compassion, the will to survive, and a determination to find truth and justice. I found The Advocate to be the perfect book me for to put my amateur sleuth hat on for. In fact, after I read this book, I immediately bought the second book in the series.
The Advocate is an excellent legal thriller about an intense, emotional subject. Attorney, Sabre Brown, works in Juvenile Court, protecting at-risk children. This is an excellent story line with plenty of suspense and takes you deep inside the inner workings of the juvenile system. Teresa Burrell writes an excellent, authentic thriller.
Best book I have read in a long time. Right up there with Michael Connelly in writing style with a little faster pace and great characters. Can’t wait for the next one in the series.
I really enjoyed this story! Teresa Burrell is a wonderful author who describes as though you are there but with out over doing and boring you with too much details. She keeps you on the edge of your seat. I can not wait to read more from Teresa Burrell!
