Face Value

A Rachel Gold Mystery


As St. Louis attorney Rachel Gold knows firsthand, the grueling hours and demands of Big Law take their toll on young lawyers. Some turn to drugs, some quit the profession, and occasionally one quits altogether. According to the medical examiner, Sari Bashir quit for good on leaving work one Thursday night when she fell to her death from the eighth floor of the downtown garage adjacent to her firm. The police rule her death a suicide and move on._x000D_ However, Stanley Plotkin, the law firm’s eccentric mailroom clerk, is sure that Sari was murdered. Stanley, a genius afflicted with Asperger’s Syndrome, cannot read emotions from other’s facial expressions.
