The Safecracker—A Novel


Idealistic young lawyer Patricia Egan has a housemate she doesn’t like and a criminal case she doesn’t want—defending a professional safecracker who seems far removed from her boutique law firm’s premier client, a group of Carolina cities pursuing a visionary alternative energy project. But the safecracker and some city officials and investors in the project are closely linked in their respective criminal enterprises, something they want no one to discover, certainly not Patricia and her accidental housemate and fellow lawyer, Jack Alexander.
