Two judges are murdered in Washington and only a young law student, Darby Shaw, knows why. She has uncovered a secret, but can she stay alive long enough to persuade anyone to believe her? Originally designed for teaching English as a foreign language, the series' combination of high interest level and low reading age makes it suitable for both English-speaking teenagers with limited reading skills and students of English as a second language. Many titles in the series also provide access to the preth century literature strands of the National Curriculum English Orders. In addition, titles fall into one of three sub-categories: "Contemporary", "Classics" or "Originals". At the end of each book there is a section of enjoyable exercises focusing on vocabulary building, comprehension, discussion and writing.
