In Defense of Guilt - Book - #Giveaway! (U.S.) Ends 10/21

Even the most virtuous among us has a few skeletons in their closet. It can be easy, especially in our fast-paced, technology-fueled, highly competitive capitalist world, to live a life that is less than perfect in terms of morality and priorities. We can usually skate by this way; but Ben Berkley, in his thrilling courtroom drama In Defense of Guilt (Koehler Books, October 24, 2018), imagines what might happen if you were forced to come face to face with your sins—and be judged for them. In a revelatory novel that will keep readers turning pages from the first word, Berkley subtly reminds us that in the end, we’re all dispensable, and it’s important to live each day with that in mind.

Available to purchase online and in stores, October 24th!

About the book:
Lauren Hill is a chic, sophisticated, and driven defense attorney who has never lost a case. Some might call her a workaholic. When she represents a man accused of throwing his wife overboard on a cruise, she, as usual, begins to artfully present her case. Courtroom proceedings start to take a turn, however, when the presiding Judge Howell morphs into God, and only Lauren can see him. Her personal life becomes the content of the case instead of her client’s alleged crimes. Forced to question her own actions over the course of her life, she confronts infidelity, poor parenthood, and self-absorption. As the Almighty questions her, he charges Lauren with committing the seven deadly sins. But is this real or fantasy? Is Lauren on the edge of a nervous breakdown, or is God presiding and ultimately deciding Lauren’s fate?

With In Defense of Guilt, Berkley leverages years of experience as an attorney for this page-turning courtroom procedural that toys with the genre in a unique way — giving us a look behind the scenes both in the courtroom and in the lives of busy, practicing lawyers.
