New Legal Courtroom Suspense Thriller: Presumption Of Innocence





Presumption of Innocence

Kendra Carlisle Series
Brigitta Moon

Suppose there was a cure for cancer?

Who would kill to keep it quiet?

Kendra Carlisle's career life is about to change. The family attorney never expected to end up in the first chair representing a murderer. Unfortunately for her, if she cannot prove her case, there will be another death.


Kendra Carlisle is a successful, low-profile, family lawyer. She has led a life as quiet as her career. She's not glamorous nor a Miami socialite until the case of a lifetime is dropped on her desk. A woman is dead. Who killed her inside her apartment, and why? The news of her murder is fired across the internet and TV, scorched in bold letters of newspaper headlines — and across Claire Wallace's every waking thought. Denise Raines had been Claire's friend and she was the last to see her alive.

Denise did not have known enemies, but she was at the center of a historic discovery—the cure for cancer. While Kendra's partner and mentor is tied up in court with another case, she is left on her own to find unanswered questions from Denise's past which is nonexistent.

The harder Kendra pushes to exonerate her client, the guiltier she appears to the news outlets. Without the support of her client's husband, will Kendra lose the case and send her client to jail—for life or worse, death?

AT&T Cell Phone Customer Beware

Let me start by saying I don't love posting negative reviews, but when you call into a company and do not get a competent response, you ask for a manager. Sadly, when you get transferred to a manager whose response is worse, what else is there to do except post a review, and hopefully a higher person in the chain sees it. I have been a customer of AT&T since 1997 when they were known as Cingular, Cellular One, and then AT&T. 

According to AT&T, I have an older plan. I love it. I do not like their unlimited plan that is not actually unlimited. It slows your data down after you reach your monthly unlimited data deprioritization threshold. My plan is a 35GB family plan, four phones, with rollover. It is rare that we go over. If we do go over, we expect it in advance. One example is working from home, moving, and the WiFi does not get installed in time for the workday, so the data gets used as a hotspot. 

Starting on Friday, March 11 at 10:44 p.m., thirteen days before our bill cycle starts over, we started

receiving text messages that we had used 75% of our shared data, and 1G of Data would be added for $15 if we used 100%. That was the beginning of this nightmare that we continue to live in. The next message was sent at 1:40 in the morning. One daughter is on a plane. The rest of us are in bed until more text messages start arriving. The next text arrived twelve minutes later at 1:52 a.m., informing us that we had used all our data and 1GB had been added for $15. At 1:55 a.m., three minutes later, we received a text that we had used 75% of the 1 GB. No one is using Data. At 1:38 p.m., we receive a message that all of the 1GB was used and another 1GB was added for $15. 

I called AT&T using 611 and explained what was happening. We have half a month to go and they are adding and will be adding more $15 charges for 1GB of data each time. The customer service rep informed me that my old plan is not compatible with AT&T (although it is an AT&T plan that was assigned to us by AT&T)  and therefore the data will continue to disappear and the $15 charges will continue. Can you imagine how fast the $15 charges will add up for the next thirteen days at 1GB increments? The current plan is the one I was told I was upgraded into because the original plan I had was discontinued. Now, the rep is telling me that because my plan that AT&T changed me to is no longer compatible, and if I refuse to change my plan, the $15 charges will continue. I asked for a manager. Corrine, the manager gets on the phone. I explain the situation. She tells me they cannot disable the data because it would make the phones inoperable. She says I have one option. I have to change my plan to an unlimited plan or the $15 charges will continue. That is where she is wrong. I informed her, there are always other options. There are other cell providers.

All of us turned our data off. Still, I received another message at 9:58 p.m. saying we had used 75% of the 1GB. How? All the data on the phones are turned off. I went back to my phone and read what it said about turning the data off. Surprise! It is not actually off. It is on Low Data Mode which helps to reduce cellular data usage. We went a step further. All of us turned the data off for every App. Now, we have to wait to see if these $15 charges stop. 

After all these years, I have finally researched other cellular companies. I found a plan I like a lot. T-Mobile Magenta Max. It is $10 per month more than I am paying at AT&T, but we will get a lot more benefits. #1—the data is truly unlimited, with no slowdown. We will receive Netflix, so I can cancel my Netflix plan which is now $15.99/month. This means the T-Mobile bill is now $5.99 cheaper than AT&T. Woohoo. And just think, if AT&T had not attempted to force a long-time customer to accept a plan they do not want by adding $15 charges to the bill, I would have never looked into other cell providers. As soon as T-Mobile opens, I will be at their door waiting to switch carriers. In hindsight, I am happy everyone bought their phones directly from Apple and we are not under contract with AT&T. I stayed a customer for years without a contract. I would not have considered changing if I was not being forced into a plan I don't want by disappearing data and $15 charges. 

Update: 8:24 a.m., after turning all data off on every phone and on every App, we received another text saying we used 1G of data and another $15 for another 1GB of data has been added to my account. The rep on the phone is now telling me not to worry; it is a system error and just call back when I receive the bill and they will remove all the charges. He says they cannot stop the system from texting and waking me up all hours of the night. He says he cannot stop the system from adding an extra GB of data for $15, although I do not want it. Right now I feel completely harassed and abused. T-Mobile opens at 11 a.m. today. I cannot wait to cancel AT&T.

Update: AT&T attempted to match T-Mobile's offer. We do not watch HBO Max but we were willing to accept the offer for convenience until I was told that if I did not accept autopay the plan would be $40 more. That is a deal-breaker. After spending two hours on the phone trying to sort this out and thinking things were good, I was hit with the $40 extra fee. Greed! Lastly, she offered me a 15GB unlimited prepaid line for each phone. Bye AT&T!

Book Review: Arcadia Falls by Author Ken Stark

 Although this story was written for teens and young adults, I enjoyed every scene. I think horror and suspense readers of all ages will enjoy Arcadia Falls. The author, Ken Stark, has a way of telling this story

that kept me reading to discover what would happen next. 


At the beginning of the novel, I actually forgot I was reading a horror. I was leisurely dropped into a high school where I met the students and one teacher, in particular, the history instructor. Without warning, I found myself in the middle of a horror story.


 Each character is fleshed out in the beginning, and then the landscape. The author did such a wonderful job with the characters and landscape that I felt as if I was watching a movie. At times, I felt as if I was actually in the middle of the scene, watching and experiencing everything. I love books where the author has the ability to invoke all the senses.  


As I read, I wondered many times how this story would resolve. Honestly, I had no clue. The author kept the suspense going, feeding the reader small morsels at a time and holding back the little and big reveals. The story is filled with camaraderie, teamwork, action, adventure, and yes, the quest. I truly enjoyed the history of Arcadia Falls and how it shaped the entire story. I recommend this book to horror and suspense lovers. It is definitely a five-star read.

Read This Before You Fly to Another Destination With Your Laptop

 

You may or may not know that I am a travel nurse in addition to writing novels. May 10th was stressful. I was headed to work in Boston. I pushed my driver's license through the scanner and pulled my mask down so the TSA employee could compare my license with my face. I moved to the next security checkpoint. I was told to place my computer and cellphone in a separate bin and push everything up to the automatic scanner belt. I did as told. I moved to the next security checkpoint. I stood inside the scanner with my hands above my head and my feet on the footprints. After I was scanned, I went to claim my valuables. My MacBook was gone, STOLEN off the SECURITY BELT after it left the scanner. The theft was captured on TSA video. They have the man's picture. The problem is no information is saved after you pass through the first security checkpoint to add your belongings to the scanner. The police took the picture and searched the airport for the man. They did not find him or my computer. The worst part of the whole ordeal was when the police and TSA said to me, "This happens all the time. People's wallets, purses, cellphones, and, laptops are stolen all the time." They said TSA is not responsible to replace stolen items. I filed a claim anyway. Although they can never replace what I lost on my laptop, I would like them to be held accountable for the loss of the Macbook. We are forced to place our items on these belts. I am sharing my horrible day so the next time you go through the security checkpoint you will never take your eyes off your valuables. Even when you are being scanned, watch the security belt. No one else is keeping your belongings safe. I have Locate my Mac engaged. The computer is offline, it won't locate until the computer is on WiFi. I don't believe I will ever get my Mac back. Share this with your family and friends so they will not lose something they value.

Books Word Puzzle collection. Each word that appears in capitals below is contained inside the puzzle letter group. Words can be found in a straight line horizontally, vertically, or diagonally. They can be read forward or backward. Did he get away with murder?

 

Mr. Herlock Amadan is in PARIS for a ROMANTIC celebration with his wife. Twenty years of MARRIAGE. She has been the best wife—raising the kids, keeping the house, and keeping her husband. His shirts and pants were always pressed with a crease that even the dry cleaner envied. Breakfast was hot and on the table every morning before she kissed her man and sent him off to work on Capitol Hill. Now, the kids are grown and Mrs. Amadan has some gray strands in her neat hairdo. CELLULITE and belly fat are CREEPING up on the happy couple. But Mr. Amadan doesn't care about the aging changes his wife is EXPERIENCING. So, for their twentieth ANNIVERSARY, he books a lovely trip to Paris. His wife is ECSTATIC. She tells everyone about her wonderful DEVOTED husband. Mr. Amadan is today's talk on the Hill. What a wonderful husband he is— is what they are all saying. He has even GARNERED a COVETED time slot on the news. He sweeps his twenty-year bride off her feet and onto a plane for a romantic twentieth HONEYMOON. He wines and dines her like a queen. On the third evening, he has a surprise for his lovely wife. She is off to take a shower to ready herself for whatever he has planned. He kisses her cheek, telling her he will return soon. He has to add the final touch to their CELEBRATION. Twenty minutes later he leaves the suite, greets the DOORMAN on the way. But he is so happy, he turns back to the doorman and announces that it is his anniversary. He is off to get his wife the biggest diamond he can find. The one he finds is CAPTIVATING—it has all four Cs—color, cut, clarity, and carats. The woman is a KNOCKOUT: gleaming red hair and girlish freckles sprinkled across the bridge of her nose, perky breasts, toned thighs, and she has the giggles. He slips the ring on the finger that could be that of a hand model. An hour of passionate lovemaking with the hand model has made Mr. Amadan feel twenty again. He returns to the hotel, BRANDISHES the less than "biggest diamond he can find" at the doorman. The lowly paid employee smiles, showing all his teeth. To him, it looks as if it is worth a million dollars. Mr. Amadan returns to his suite. He walks through looking for his wife. The shower is running. He can hear the water. He peers in. Mrs. Amadan is DEAD, apparently slipped in the shower and hit her head. Mr. Amadan smiles as he lifts the receiver to call for help. He doesn't have a worry in the world. The Doorman will REMEMBER him.
