New book by John LaBuda and Trey Wilkinson
Book signing for ‘Right to Counsel’ August 17
New book by John LaBuda and Trey Wilkinson
Pinedale residents John LaBuda and William Dale Wilkinson, III (Trey) have co-authored a new book entitled, "Right to Counsel." The book is a murder mystery based in Pinedale, Wyoming. This is the first book for both men. There will be a book signing at the Pinedale Library on Wednesday, August 17th starting at 5PM.
"This was a project John had in mind for some time and starting a little over two years ago we started working on it together," said Trey. "It's a murder mystery based in Pinedale, Wyoming, with a unique twist at the end."
About the Book
A quiet little mountain town in western Wyoming is awakened when one of the town’s prominent figures is murdered. The wife of Pinedale’s mayor is found dead at a local hotel and questions arise when a handful of characters are questioned and become involved.
Jimmy J, the town drunk, looks good for the murder; however, his attorney believes in innocence until proven guilty.
The mystery adds a unique twist when a pair of lovers are pitted one against the other in the courtroom. The tactical prosecutor, Angela Scott, and highly decorated defense attorney, J.B. Royce, must trust one another as they go to battle in the legal arena.
An incompetent sheriff, an ambitious young reporter, a mysterious businessman, and a talented, yet ethically-challenged lawyer will leave readers wondering who’s right?...who’s wrong?...and who’s the murderer?
