Flawed Judgment


When a brutally disfigured body is found in an alley dumpster in center city Philadelphia, top Detective Shana Doyle assumes the crime scene will be business as usual. Instead, the victim turns out to be one of her high school classmates.

As she dives into the investigation, she’s shocked when evidence points to her close friends of thirty years. She hasn’t exactly been the model friend, since she distanced herself from them after a personal tragedy hit her six months ago. But she can’t believe any of them could be involved with the murder. Fighting for their innocence, she enlists the Chief Medical Examiner, Malcolm (Mac) Boyd to help decipher a vital clue in hopes of finding something to support her belief.

But when Shana stumbles on a deadly cover-up and blackmail scheme that misdirects the investigation and further implicates her friends, she agonizes over holding back information that could jeopardize her successful career. Against all odds, she is still convinced of their innocence. With pressure to make an arrest, Shana races against time to find the real killer.
