Meet Jess Dawson. Jess grew up with money, a sense of entitlement, and no one, especially her father, really expected her to achieve anything more out of life than obtaining her MRS. degree in suburban housewifery. Since Jess’s mother committed suicide when she was eight, her father coddled and protected her, and as a result, Jess hasn’t always been the pillar of good behavior. She spent six years in college partying instead of studying. She wasted most of her inheritance after her father died. She’s done three stints in rehab for heroin. But it’s her misdeeds fourteen years ago on a high-profile death penalty case that could prove to have deadly consequences for her now. Then, as a juror, she helped sentence a young Russian named Mikael Kriskan to die for the brutal murders of his adoptive American parents and sister one cold Colorado night, and now, the Russians have come to set him free. For they have discovered the genius Kriskan is really the biological son of one of their own, a leader of the Saint Petersburg Twelve, a criminal organization known for arms dealing and murder, and they want Kriskan returned to his Russian roots. The choice the mob gives her seems easy: Kill Mikael, kill your son. Save Mikael, save your son. But in a case where the post-conviction appeals have run out, the impact the truth of her actions will have upon her new husband and autistic son is dire, and the lives of her fellow jurors are equally at stake—this choice will be anything but easy.

In The Fifth Juror, intimidation and ultimatums weave a complicated web of murder, conspiracy, and lies that force a young woman to confront her past and the consequences her choices have had on multiple lives. The plot leaves you asking—how far would you go to right a wrong? A nail-biting suspense thriller that is part of the Women of Redemption Series, books that feature women who may not be perfect, but perfectly kick-ass when given a second chance.
