High-stakes politics and the rivalry between two powerful women in the trial of the century.
Legendary defense attorney Raquel Rematti represents a presidential candidate—and former First Lady of an ISIS-assassinated President—Senator Angelina Baldesteri in the most watched and explosive trial of the 21st Century. The Senator, a Democrat, sees it as a vendetta show trial orchestrated by the current Republican U.S. President, his Republican Attorney General, and an ambitious Republican United States Attorney in Manhattan. At the trial, a year before the election, the Senator faces charges of election fraud, tax evasion, and money laundering; each of which could deem her unfit for office and all but remove her from the Presidential race.

As the dramatic trial unfolds, Raquel steadily realizes that the Senator’s is hidden trail of lies which she has fought hard to keep from the light of day including a series of complicated and illicit connections. As Raquel’s complex, conflicted relationship with her client begins to gradually endanger herself, she must decide whether to face the recurrent dangers or allow her life and the lives of those she loves to be threatened.

Praise for Paul:

There are too few legal thrillers with women courtroom warriors. This page turning true to life super thriller helps to remedy this bias. Batista’s characters jump off the page. They are as real as they are fascinating. A great read.- Alan Dershowitz, Author of Trumped Up

Paul Batista scores 100% with his new novel, The Warriors. Two strong women locked in battle in and out of a courtroom coupled with murder, money laundering, and constant mystery. His lawyer heroine is complex and compelling. We live and breathe her triumph and terror. No doubt, I love this book!- Rikki Klieman, CBS News Legal Analyst

Powerful courtroom scenes and well-drawn characters are pluses…fans of TV commentator Batista won’t want to miss this one.- —Publishers Weekly
