Publisher's Summary

Attorney Sabre O. Brown is called upon to defend an abused 14 year-old boy of murder after a body is discovered in a shallow grave with the word GOOF scrawled across his forehead.

Years later when more bodies are unearthed baring the same GOOF signature, two more abused juveniles are accused of the gruesome slayings. In order to convince a jury of her client's innocence, Sabre must either find a copycat killer, prove the murderer was a trusted friend of the three boys, or realize her worst fear - that her teenage clients carried out their own brand of vigilante justice on the men who abused them.

Great addition to the Advocate series

Excellent addition to the Advocate series. This book has long guilty pedophiles being murdered and in some cases their unfortunate victims getting convicted of the crimes. Sabre Brown doesn't believe that these accused kids are guilty but can't prove it. The men have prison slang for pedophile written on their forehead and instead of narrowing the list of people who could be responsible, it expends it. Unfortunately there are so many victims of child sexual abuse out there, many keep it to themselves and are ashamed to let other people know. The person responsible for these murders will surprise you.
John Bell does an excellent job narrating.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Great novel in a wonderful legal thriller series

The eight novels of The Advocate legal thriller series is always difficult to listen to because because all novels (to date) deal with severe child abuse or elect. Author Teresa Burrell actually works with such cases in her legal practice in the San Diego CA area. The subject of The Advocates Homicides are young teen boys being molested/raped by adult male sex predators. When the adult predators start to be murdered in serial fashion, some of their young teen victims are convicted of murder. Attorney Sabre Brown and and her ex-cop investigator/boyfriend set out to find the real murderer and free the falsely convicted boys.

This novel is #8 in The Advocate series. John Bell has superbly narrated the most recent three novels. I very highly recommend all novels in The Advocate series.

Worst narrator ever.

They should have stuck with the original narrator. This guy was awful. I'm sorry, not trying to be mean but it was very hard to stick with it. The story was good.

Great Addition to Advocate Series, Best Yet!!!

John Bell narrates the 8th book in the Advocate Series. He does a great job bringing the characters I know and love to life. His unique ability to voice and emote each characters personality brings great life to one of the best books in the series.

Teresa Burrell has become a stronger writer with each book. The main character Sabre O. Brown, and crew are back in a story right out of today's true crime savvy podcasts. A innocent child railroaded into the adult system for allegedly killing the pedophile who abused him. The true to life story of children caught in the children services system where parents are on drugs or in prison is presented with compassion and a level of truth only someone familiar with the system could know. Teresa explores all facets of the San Diego justice system, its frustrations and realities while telling a engaging story that draws you in and makes you care about each character.

As multiple bodies are found of the areas pedophiles, Sabre must solve more than one murder before all her young clients end up in jail. The stakes are raised as time is running out. Will she find the killer before some close to her is caught up in this killers path of destruction.

A great addition to the Advocate Series. Listen from the beginning.
