    Set in the United States Attorney's Office for the Central District of California, Santa Ana Branch Office, Deadly Force is the first installment of a trilogy of legal thrillers based around tough federal prosecutor Lizzie Scott. When a Riverside County sheriff’s deputy is accused of shooting a suspect to death, Scott is handed her worst nightmare: an excessive force case against a cop. If Scott indicts the deputy, she risks losing the trust of her fellow law enforcement agents. If she wins the case, she risks even more. The indicted sheriff knows where she lives and has threatened her life. Lose the case...and a killer walks, justice fails, and Scott's career is in peril. 

    A classic Western for the 21st century, Lizzie Scott is a tough law woman trying to tame a wild frontier. Deadly Force is the ultimate insider’s look into the nuts and bolts of a federal civil rights prosecution as it reveals the unique pressures, competing personal desires and ambitions brought to bear on the lawyers, victims, witnesses, and judges involved in such a case.
