Praise for The Flinch Factor... "Pick it up, but only if you can afford to lose a night's sleep, because you won't be able to put it down." -Steve Martini, author of the Paul Madriani novels Several years have passed since we last saw stunning, savvy attorney Rachel Gold. Now she is a mother, a widow, and a reluctant participant in a lost cause: the Frankenstein Case. She represents a blue-collar neighborhood fighting a developer intent on bulldozing their homes to erect a gated community. Rachel's strategy will be based on the wacky judge on the case, known to the St. Louis Bar as "The Flinch Factor." Then Rachel gains a new client: Susannah, sister of Nick Moran, local heartthrob. Nick has been murdered, found slumped on the front seat of his pickup along an isolated lane known as Gay Way. His female groupies are, to say the least, stunned. His sister smells foul play. A skeptical Rachel agrees to check it out and turns up facts suggesting that Nick's death was not an accident. Are Nick's death and her Frankenstein case somehow related? Can Rachel uncover the truth before more lives are lost? Michael A. Kahn is the award-winning author of several novels praised by Publishers Weekly for their "intelligent, breezy dialogue and clever plotting." Now a trial attorney in St. Louis, he wrote his first novel on a dare from his wife who, sick of hearing "I could write a better book than this," finally said, "Then write one or please shut up." www.michaelakahn.com.
