Editorial Reviews


"A brilliant debut novel by former lawyer Teresa Burrell with a sharp writing style and perception of right and wrong. Legal suspense as it should be, filled with action, drama, and emotion."--Andrew Peterson, thriller author of First to Kill

From the Author

I grew up reading Erle Stanley Gardner's Perry Mason novels until I discovered John Grisham. I hope I can bring a fraction of the reading pleasure to my readers as I have received from those two wonderful authors.

Teresa Burrell has dedicated her life to helping children and their families in both the courtroom and the classroom.

As an attorney in San Diego, Burrell maintained a private law practice for twelve years, which specialized in domestic, criminal, and civil cases. Her work in juvenile court focused on representing abused minors and juvenile delinquents. Burrell has received several awards and special recognition from the San Diego Volunteer Lawyers for her countless hours of pro bono work with children and their families.

Burrell has also enjoyed a satisfying career as a teacher. She has taught children of all ages with diverse backgrounds and special needs. After creating an after-school program that kept kids off the street, she received a community service award.

Now in semi-retirement in California, Burrell continues to educate groups about social issues impacting children and write novels, many of which are inspired by actual legal cases. She is the author of The Advocate Series which now contains eleven novels: The Advocate, The Advocate's Betrayal, The Advocate's Conviction, The Advocate's Dilemma, The Advocate's Ex Parte, The Advocate's Felony, The Advocate's Geocache, The Advocate's Homicides, The Advocate's Illusion, The Advocate's Justice, The Advocate's Killer, and the newest release, The Advocate's Labyrinth. Teresa has a second series with a character from The Advocate's Felony. She has three books in that series, Mason's Missing, Finding Frankie and Recovering Rita.

Burrell also has three children's books that are fun for the whole family--Gaspar, the Flatulating Ghost, Gaspar Meets a Bully, and Gaspar Flies a Kite.
