A cross between a high-octane thriller and a courtroom drama, “Survivor’s Guilt” sees transgender attorney Erin McCabe struggling to solve, without ending up as a victim, the murder of a millionaire. When the millionaire’s daughter pleads guilty, McCabe smells the proverbial rat, and with the aid of her practice partner, dives into a horrific world of trafficking and exploitation and evil. The author is a straightforward stylist and the thriller plot itself proceeds a little clumsily, but the underlying storyline and the interaction of Gigl with the victim, herself transgender, keeps the reader interested. The action scenes are gripping. Survivor’s Guilt offers an engrossing, slightly-off-the-beaten-track read.
