Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:
Suppose the unimaginable: What if your child was killed in a hit-and-run? And the one person who knew the driver’s identity—his lawyer—didn’t have to tell you his name?
Silent Counsel is the story of just such a nightmare. After Stacy Altman’s six-year-old son is run down in front of their house, with no witnesses to the tragic accident, she learns that the driver has hired attorney Scott Heller to negotiate a plea arrangement with the prosecutor. But he’s instructed Scott to keep his name secret until a satisfactory agreement is in place. The prosecutor refuses to make a deal, and the court rebuffs Stacy’s efforts to force Scott to tell her—or even the authorities—who his client is, holding that it’s privileged information.
Since the court won’t do anything to help Stacy track down her son’s killer, she takes matters into her own hands. And she’s determined to make Scott talk—at any cost…
When Stacy’s stalking of Scott’s young daughter escalates into a kidnapping, Scott makes the only reasonable choice a parent can—cooperate and give up the client. That’s when Scott discovers that doing the right thing isn’t as easy as he thought—and now the mother isn’t the only one looking for the child’s killer.
