Advance praise for Robyn Gigl and By Way of Sorrow
"An intelligent and resourceful protagonist with an unusual backstory... Erin's ability to navigate the intricacies of the law is just as fascinating as the subsequent perils she encounters. Gigl, an attorney, offers some enlightening insights into the workings of the legal world."
"This enthralling series debut features a twisty plot full of surprises and a cast of exciting characters--most notably tough, relatable defense-attorney Erin McCabe--all while diving into the mud of corrupt local politics. An original legal thriller that is sure to be among the year's best!"
--Edwin Hill, author of The Missing Ones
"Readers will find that By Way of Sorrow is a compulsively riveting page-turner with a complex heroine, a captivating plot, and no easy answers. It's one of the best thrillers of the year." --Mystery Scene
"Robyn Gigl has delivered a compelling, provocative legal thriller like no other. It's addictive as hell, one of those 'just one more chapter' books that keep you reading late into the night. Topical and fast-paced, By Way of Sorrow
grabs you on the very first page with a brutal murder, and then sends you on a twist-filled thrill-ride that doesn't let up until the startling finale. Gigl introduces a new kind of heroine with attorney Erin McCabe--she's brilliant, resourceful, a little vulnerable and completely unique. Bravo! Is it too soon to ask when we can expect the next Erin McCabe thriller?"
--Kevin O'Brien, New York Times
bestselling author of The Bad Sister
"Robyn Gigl's By Way of Sorrow
is a taut, engaging, page-turner with a lot of heart. Lawyer Erin McCabe and her law partner Duane Swisher are on the case of a transgender teen accused of murdering the scion of a ruthless politician bent on burying the case, and the accused, at all costs. A good read. McCabe's a protagonist with a lot of depth. Two thumbs up for Gigl."
--Tracy Clark, author of What You Don't See
"Gigl, a transgender lawyer herself, provides provocative insights into the legal system and the challenges of gender identity."
