Defender of the Innocent: The Casebook of Martin Ehrengraf
Twelve stories, one original to this volume. Dapper and diabolical defense attorney Martin Ehrengraf never sees the inside of a courtroom, because all his clients are innocent, no matter how guilty they may seem.

Evidence turns up, incriminating someone else. More murders occur, with the same M.O. And the gate of the jail cell opens, and the accused walks free.

Amnesia
When Gaby Baillieux released the Angel Worm virus into Australia's prison system, hundreds of asylum seekers walked free. And because the US runs the prisons - as they do so many parts of her country - the doors of several thousand jails in the US also opened. Was this a mistake, or a declaration of cyber war? What, if anything, does it have to do with the largely forgotten Battle of Brisbane between US and Australian forces in 1942? Or with the CIA-influenced coup in Australia in 1975? Journalist Felix Moore is determined to write Gaby's biography in order to find the answers, to save her, to save his career, and perhaps to save his country. But how to get Gaby to cooperate?
