    Kris, your lawyer fiction is always so factually spot on (even when they’re not in Earth courtrooms), I am constantly amazed. Another gripping story! Loved it!

    This was amazing. Please tell me that you plan to expand this into a book.

    And, if you do, put me on the mailing list for it.

    I’ve been wondering how those 2 fared for a while (a bunch of years, actually, already). Mind you, bad as I am with names, I might know and not realize.

    Take care.
