Book Description

Jan. 1 2002
The Internet chat room was a place where anything could be said, any identity assumed. A place where someone known only as the Black Knight seduced, lured . . . then killed.

Attorney Kate Logan needs a high-profile case to jump-start her fledgling private D.C. practice. So when she's asked to represent the prime suspect in the Molly Buchanan murder, the opportunity seems too good to pass up.

Two years earlier, Todd Buchanan, son of a powerful Washington family, fled the country in a desperate attempt to avoid being arrested for his wife's murder. Now he wants to clear his name -- and he wants Kate to do it. But the case comes with a price -- for the victim is the sister of detective Mitch Calhoon, the new man in Kate's life. Now Kate is faced with a harrowing choice.

Convinced a miscarriage of justice has occurred, she accepts the case and enters the powerful corridors of the nation's capital, where secrets remain hidden at all costs -- even if it means murder. But time is running out and the moment of truth has arrived . . .

Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

What does a struggling Washington, D.C., attorney do when a high-profile client offers her one hundred thousand dollars to clear him of a two-year-old murder? Take the case! With bills to pay and a 13-year-old daughter to support, that's exactly what Kate Logan does, but unfortunately, her client is Todd Buchanan, the youngest son of a Supreme Court Justice. Todd, a smart aleck rich boy with a taste for trouble, had disappeared after his wife Molly was found murdered in a sleazy motel room by someone she met online in a sexually themed chat room. Molly is also the sister of Detective Mitch Calhoon, the man in Kate's life. As Kate expects, Mitch reacts badly when she tells him she's taken the case, but then he surprises her by offering his support even though the case will open old wounds and reveal family secrets he'd just as soon keep hidden. Gathering evidence to clear Todd takes Kate into the inner circles of D.C.'s rich and powerful and gives Kate, as well as the reader, an up close and personal look at the dark world of cybersex and sexual addiction. Although the novel's plotting isn't as seamless as one would expect from an author of Heggan's skill and following, its provocative subject matter, likeable characters and swift pacing override any shortcomings.

2.0 out of 5 stars Below Average. May 13 2003

Format:Mass Market Paperback
Have to wonder whether these reviews ("keeps getting better") are on the level. Overlong and most trifling of whodunits. Not romantic, not racy, no courtroom, no surprises, Juvenile reading level.

4.0 out of 5 stars An enjoyable romantic suspense March 17 2003
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Kate Logan has branched off into her own practice as a criminal attorney after the notoriety of proving her own father-in-law a murderer. It was harder than she thought however, as the press she received hasn't at all helped her practice. That all changes when she gets a call from the finance of an accused murderer who fled the country two years before. She is dying to take the case, not only for the money, but she honestly believes the man is innocent. Kate is torn, for the murder victim was the sister of the man she has fallen in love with.
Mitch Calhoon is a cop for the Metro PD. He's always believed in justice and in his opinion, Todd Buchannan needs to be brought to justice for the murder of his sister. Then he gets priceless advice which makes him realize that he's thinking as a brother, not a cop. So he decides to help Kate unravel the mystery behind the night of his sisters murder.
Moment of Truth is a suspense that will keep you guessing almost until the end. Heggan drops clues about who the real killer is, which aren't hard to pick up and piece together. It was a very satisfying and enjoyable read!

5.0 out of 5 stars Read Suspicion First April 30 2002
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This book has the same two characters as Suspicion, Kate Logan and Mitch Calhoon. I would recommend reading that one first. Kate Logan an attorney is asked to represent Todd Buchanan, a man being sought for the death of his wife Molly. The problem with this is that Molly was the sister of Mitch, Kate's boyfriend. It all started with two people agreeing to meet in person after they first meet in an internet chat room.
