by Don Clark France
In any social issue, those who clamor, rarely gain; those who are victims usually lose. And so it is that the profit-takers take profits. Such is the case in Don Clark France’s novel Baby Face.
Lloyd Rosen is an attorney. His wife, Becky, is pregnant. As the couple prepares for the birth and baptism of their child, the nation’s eyes swing to Orlando, Florida, and the case of a woman and her deceased newborn.
Solitia Luster is accused of killing her infant; Lloyd is the defense attorney. Behind the scenes and in the midst of all the legal maneuvering, Lloyd’s enemies will stop at nothing to see him lose this one, including threats “to bring him to bay using his lovely young wife. His lovely young pregnant wife.” Will Lloyd succumb to their threats? Or will he resist the intimidation? And what will be revealed in the trial?
