Lawyer Rep Pennyworth suspects that the frat boy on trial for piracy in Milwaukee is being used in a cheap publicity stunt. Meanwhile Rep’s wife Melissa, a professor, witnesses a verbal firefight between two colleagues that escalates into burglary, jury-tampering, and forgery of document from World War II—and murder. Though Melissa wants to protect a naïve undergraduate, one of the other suspects makes Melissa a cast-iron alibi and her search for the truth leads through a maze of gray lies—including her own. Dealing with an investigative reporter, a fellow professor with ruthless academic ambition, and a brace of cunning lawyers, Rep and Melissa combine their talents to stay off the casualty list.... Shoot the Lawyer Twice is the fourth book in Michael Bowen’s Pennyworth mystery series.
