Plea of InsanityBook - 2009
The prosecutor - Julia Valenciano. Young and ambitious and facing a case that could catapult her career. The defendant - David Marquette. A successful Miami attorney and devoted husband and father. The victims - his own family. The plea - not guilty by reason of insanity. The perfect father and husband, David Marquette seemingly just snapped. His defence team claims paranoid delusions caused by schizophrenia drove him to slaughter his entire family. But the state suspects Marquette's insanity defence is being fabricated to disguise murders that were cold-blooded and calculated. Worse, Julia believes Marquette could be responsible for a string of unsolved, brutal homicides. The distraught survivor could just be one of the most prolific serial killers in the country's history. To bring him to justice, Julia must embark on a terrifying personal journey back into her own past - something she has struggled for fifteen years to forget. And this will lead her to confront a future so chilling, she's not sure she will ever be able to face it.
