The Courtroom Coroner
A dead defendant. A court in lockdown. And a murderer in the room.
Coroner Fenway Stevenson is distraught. Not only is her father on trial for murder, but a huge conspiracy is wrecking the coastal town she calls home.
And with two gunshots in a crowded courtroom, everything changes.
A dead body. Thirteen people. A set of locked doors. As the hours tick by, one thing becomes clear: the killer is still in the courtroom and will stop at nothing to ensure the truth never comes out.
With nothing but a fingerprint kit, an Ethernet cable, and her wits, can Fenway catch the killer before becoming a victim herself?
"A suspenseful closed-room murder mystery. Ardoin masterfully crafts anedge-of-your-seat novel with the perfect balance of intrigue, drama, and humor."
--C.B. Samet, four-time award-winning author
