The Midnight Call by Jodé Millman
Could you ever suspect that your mentor was a cold-blooded killer?
Attorney Jessie Martin couldn’t– at least not until she answers the midnight call.
Late one August night, her mentor/confidante and popular high school teacher Terrence Butterfield calls, admits he’s killed someone and pleads for Jessie’s help. Out of loyalty, she rushes to his aid, unaware that she’s risking her love, her career, her life and that of her unborn child.
When the police arrive, her presence raises questions as to her role in the gruesome slaughter of the teenage boy found in Terrence’s basement. Did Terrence call her as a lawyer or a friend? Was she somehow responsible for the murder?
To dismiss the murder charges Terrence betrays Jessie, making her wonder whether he’d been a monster in disguise all along.
To prove her innocence, Jessie must untangle the web of betrayals and the shocking truths behind the homicide. This quest turns out to be the fight of her life.
