Lost Proof



Attorney Nate Shepherd is back, representing a thief accused of murder. Was it a burglary gone wrong? Or is his client caught in a larger plot? A riveting new legal thriller by Michael Stagg.

Nate Shepherd can’t tell if his client is lying.

The police say Nate’s client beat a young reporter to death during a break-in. They have the evidence to prove it, from the stolen goods right down to the bloody aluminum bat. A celebrated prosecutor takes over the case, aiming to convict Nate’s client of murdering the reporter while robbing his house.

But Nate’s client swears he didn’t kill the man so, helped by a new associate and old friends, Nate dives into the overwhelming evidence in search of a defense. And with each new lead, Nate’s suspicions grow that there might be more to this crime.
