Review

In Oregon, the Kelso-McIvey Rehabilitation Center is known locally as the Rehab Center. The facility provides non-profit medical care for people. However, neurosurgeon David McIvey, son of one of the founders, has other plans for the place as he sees an opportunity to make money although the clinic was his mother’s dream and his wife enjoys her volunteer work there. The current clinic leaders Dr. Greg Boardman and his wife Naomi oppose changing the clinic, but soon may have no say as David inches closer to taking total control.

However, someone takes exception to David’s plan and kills him just outside the clinic. The police suspect that the victim’s wife, in cahoots with a physical therapist working at the Rehab (who they believe is her lover) committed the homicide. Attorney Barbara Holloway thinks otherwise and plans to prove her clients are innocent.

CLEAR AND CONVINCING PROOF is an exciting legal thriller that will keep the audience guessing as the evidence affirms the police position as to who is the killer though clues are provided throughout the tale. The story line is fast-paced especially while Barbara explores alternate motive theories. Though the reason for the murder seems soft, it is reasonably established so fans receive a powerful investigative tale wrapped inside a strong legal thriller.
