About The Book

If you’re looking for an interesting place to commit a murder, you can’t do better than West Palm Beach, Florida.

Events at the Palm Beach Courthouse prove just how true that is, as a high profile murder trial is complicated by a bailiff’s murder, the bombing of the courthouse and a victim’s father seeking revenge of the oldest sort. Two strong and respected female judges are caught up in the spiraling violence and intrigue, as is a young and ambitious bailiff, Casey Portman, who loves the courthouse action, yet yearns for a conventional life as a wife and a mother. But career is everything to a young prosecutor determined to win a big case, never expecting that this may be the one to bring him to his knees. “Punishment,” written by a former judge, is filled with suspense, humor, irony and an insider’s knowledge of the criminal justice that will have you loving this book – and the sequel it promises.
