Publisher's Summary

A bloody van. A motive. No alibi. Nate’s next case is not looking great.

Attorney Nate Shepherd’s newest client stands accused of a fatal hit and run. While Nate doesn’t believe that the CEO of Carrefour’s largest charity would ever smash into a person and flee the scene, a blood-streaked van says otherwise.

A freewheeling prosecutor is certain that Nate’s client did it, and more, that the killing wasn’t an accident at all. With help from old friends and an intriguing new one, Nate uncovers incriminating acts, secret relationships, and a massive motive that has him scrambling for answers.

As the case gets worse, Nate fights to craft a defense. But as trial approaches, one risk grows until it looms over everything else: Will Nate destroy his client’s life by saving his freedom?

Just Plea is the fifth book in the gripping Nate Shepherd Legal Thriller series. If you like razor-sharp dialogue, captivating characters, and riveting trials, you’ll love this fierce courtroom drama by Michael Stagg.

Not a thriller

Love the narrator and writing but this was my least favorite of the series. Very anti-climactic

Love the whole Nat Sheppard series.

Loved this 5th book in the Nat Sheppard series as much as all the others. Great writing that made me laugh out loud sometimes and kept me in the edge of my seat. At first I thought all of the trial dialogue was too much, but I just came to appreciate the details, the more I listened.
I also believe that George Newbern did a wonderful job of narrating and made the series that much more enjoyable.
My hope is that Michael Staggs does not stop with 5 books!

Highly recommend

If you enjoy courtroom dramas, the Nate Shepherd series is a must. The characters, story and narration are totally enthralling. It's also refreshing that the five books each have very different characters and storylines.
