#Bookmail By Way of Sorrow by Robyn Gigl @VERVE_books @robyngigl @kellyalacey #booktwt #miniblogpost #bookpost

Today I received a package from Verve Books. It was By Way of Sorrow by Robyn Gigl. It sounds like such a refreshing read. Thanks to Verve books for my gifted copy. Review will follow shortly.


Erin McCabe is a New Jersey criminal defense attorney doing her best to live a quiet life in the wake of a profound personal change – until a newsworthy case puts both her career and her safety in jeopardy…

Erin McCabe has been referred the biggest case of her career. Four months ago, the son of a New Jersey state senator was found fatally stabbed in a rundown motel near Atlantic City. Sharise Barnes, a nineteen-year-old transgender sex worker, is in custody, and there seems little doubt of a guilty verdict. Because Sharise admits she killed the senator’s son – in self-defense.

As a trans woman herself, Erin knows that defending Sharise will blow her own private life wide open and doubtless deepen her estrangement from her family. Yet she feels uniquely qualified to help Sharise and duty-bound to protect her from the possibility of a death sentence.

While Erin works with her law partner, former FBI agent Duane Swisher, to build a case, the distraught senator begins using the full force of his influence to publicly discredit everyone involved in defending Sharise. And behind the scenes, his tactics are even more dangerous. For his son had secrets that could destroy his own political aspirations – secrets worth killing for…

Robyn Gigl is the author of SURVIVOR’S GUILT and BY WAY OF SORROW. She is an attorney and advocate who has been honored by the ACLU-NJ and the NJ Pride Network for her work on behalf of the LGBTQ+ community. 

Robyn is a partner at Gluck Walrath, LLP in Freehold, NJ, where she handles complex commercial and employment litigation. She is a graduate of Stonehill College and Villanova University School of Law. Robyn lives in New Jersey, where she continues to practice law by day, and work on her next novel by night. Fortunately, she has a very boring social life.
