Trophy Widow: A Rachel Gold Novel (Mass Market Paperback)

Trophy Widow: A Rachel Gold Novel Cover Image
Special Order


Savvy attorney Rachel Gold has had her share of celebrity clients, but none with the stature of her newest client, Angela Green. Angela may well be the most famous former housewife in America, and surely the only one to receive special awards from Ms. magazine and the NAACP while serving time in prison for the brutal murder of her powerful husband.

Her highly publicized murder trial made Angela a media star and a folk hero. And now, with a lucrative book deal and a major motion picture in the works, she finds herself at the center of another legal controversy-this one over the proceeds from the book and movie. To defend her in the lawsuit, Angela retains Rachel Gold, who already has her hands full with a bizarre ostrich lawsuit that's right out of the pages of a supermarket tabloid.

As Rachel prepares to represent Angela in the Son of Sam lawsuit, where proceeds from Angela's book would go to the victim's family, she starts to uncover questions that were never really answered in the murder trial. Is it possible-is it even conceivable-that Angela was framed?

And if Angela's really innocent, then the murderer is still at large-and, as Rachel discovers, ready to kill again.

About the Author

Michael A. Kahn is the award-winning author of several novels, including T"rophy Widow, Bearing Witness "and" Death Benefits."" Publisher's Weekly" has praised Mr. Kahn's novels for their "intelligent, breezy dialogue and clever plotting" and writes that his latest novel, "Trophy Widow," "shows off his trademark lightning repartee and captivating setup."

A graduate of Amherst College and Harvard Law School, Mr. Kahn began his literary career writing free-lance feature articles for "Chicago Magazine" while teaching fifth grade in the Chicago public schools. He is now a trial attorney in St. Louis and has been selected for inclusion in the current edition of The Best Lawyers in America, the definitive guide to legal excellence.

The father of five children, he wrote his first novel on airplanes and in hotel rooms while working on an out-of-town lawsuit. He did it on a dare from his wife, who got sick of hearing him announce, each time he finished a paperback thriller that he'd purchased at an airport newsstand, "I could write a better book than this." "Then write one," she finally said, "or shut up."
