ONE WOMAN'S FIGHT TO PROTECT CRIME VICTIMS AND EXPOSE CORRUPTION WITHIN THE DISTRICT ATTORNEY'S OFFICE LEADS HER ON A HARROWING AND LIFE-CHANGING JOURNEY. Bradley's debut novel, Breach of Trust, explores the obstacles crime victims face navigating the criminal justice system. When Anne Gardner, a victim assistance program director, learns her boss-the district attorney-has been accused of sexually harassing a young employee, she struggles through uncharted territory. Should she remain silent or risk the career she loves by going public about a powerful elected official? The harassment allegation-along with evidence that the district attorney's corruption may have enabled a young mother's murder-dredges up painful memories from Anne's past, causes friction in her marriage, and propels her into a moral crisis.
Breach of Trust is a gripping story of corruption, courage, community, and friendship. It's about one woman's profound decision to finally speak out against injustice
"An absorbing new book filled with heart, wisdom, and a hero you'll cheer on from the opening page "-Beverly Willett, author of Disassembly Required: A Memoir of Midlife Resurrection
"Breach of Trust is a page-turner set in the much-publicized and romantic city of Savannah, Georgia. And its subjects--sexual harassment, domestic violence, and governmental corruption before the #metoo movement-are indeed timely. If you're like me, you will be riveted and want to read more."- Rosemary Daniell, award winning author of ten books of poetry and prose, including Fatal Flowers: On Sin, Sex and Suicide in the Deep South, Sleeping with Soldiers: In Search of the Macho Man, and Secrets of the Zona Rosa: How Writing (and Sisterhood) Can Change Women's Lives"Breach of Trust is a humdinger of a debut novel. Helen P. Bradley used her insider knowledge as long-time head of Savannah's crime victim advocacy program to create this compelling read about the devastating effect one person's deceit has on the justice system. Despite facing an agonizing moral decision, Anne Gardner-her fully-drawn main character-maintains her zany sense of humor, providing a welcome respite from the novel's mounting tension."-Susan Earl, author of We Part to Meet Again "These vivid characters navigate life-and-death situations at the mercy of a justice system rife with internal dramas. Bradley-herself a victim advocacy pioneer-has created a gripping, unforgettable story."- Dawn Major, author of The Bystanders
