Tucked away in a cemetery is an office
on 66 Angelus in Savannah, GA called The office of Beaufort & Company, a
most unusual law office. While Bree Winston-Beaufort does take on normal cases
to pay the bills, she hears the appeals of the dead to have their Celestial
Judgments reconsidered. Bree’s staff is most unusual as well. Her secretary, Ron,
and her paralegal, Petru are both angels, as well as her dog, Sasha, who is
also a ghost. The homicide detective, Sam Hunter, seems to be attracted to
Bree, but she is oblivious. Despite the attraction, at times she seems to push
his buttons as she takes things into her own hands.
Her latest human case is a spoiled rich
girl who has robbed a Girl Scout, of all people. As she begins poking around to
build a defense, the girl’s recently deceased father cries out to Bree that he
didn’t die in the car accident as everyone believed. Soon Bree is working
through a web of villains and deceits that have ledMr. Probert Chandler to be sentenced to the Ninth Ring of Hell.
Not to mention that vile man, Josiah,from the past has escaped his grave and is now menacing Bree in a most
ANGELS ADVOCATE is a very intriguing,
impossible to put down mystery. All of the characters are three dimensional and
the supporting cast is very enjoyable. I particularly enjoyed Ron and Petru’s
bickering in the office and that Petru was forced to move his desk to the
kitchen, otherwise known as the break room. Bree is a strong heroine who
doesn’t back down in the face of adversity and the love she feels for her
family and Sasha is tangible.
