Dead Lawyers Don't Lie by Mark  Nolan
Hi Christine, you are very perceptive :) Terrell's headaches play a major role in the plot of book three, titled: Killer Lawyer. Thanks for reading!
Mark Nolan liked a quote
Bird by Bird by Anne Lamott
“For some of us, books are as important as almost anything else on earth. What a miracle it is that out of these small, flat, rigid squares of paper unfolds world after world after world, worlds that sing to you, comfort and quiet or excite you. Books help us understand who we are and how we are to behave. They show us what community and friendship mean; they show us how to live and die.”
Anne Lamott

“In the sense of movement a boat is a living thing.
It is a companion in the night. Each boat has its own manner and character.”

“You may step down from the witness stand, Miss Chance,” Judge Emerson said. Sarah got up slowly, walked on shaking legs and sat down next to her attorney. She could feel every eye in the courtroom staring at her.”
Mark Nolan, Dead Lawyers Don't Lie

“Terrell stopped at Starbucks for a cup of coffee to go. As he was walking back to his car, he received a text message from his partner, Beth. Beth: Anything going on? Terrell: Getting coffee at Starbucks Beth: What’s the coffee of the day? Terrell: Caffè virgin Beth: Awkward Terrell: Damn autocorrect. I meant caffè vagina.”
Mark Nolan, Dead Lawyers Don't Lie

“Attorney Max Vidallen was in court, finishing up his grueling lawsuit against Sarah Chance. The case had been ugly and ruthless. This was the final day of the court battle. The jury and courtroom crowd watched as Sarah was traumatized by Vidallen’s relentless attacks upon every detail of her private life and career.”
Mark Nolan, Dead Lawyers Don't Lie

Ernest Hemingway

Robert A. Heinlein

George R.R. Martin, A Dance with Dragons

“When I was a child, adults would tell me not to make things up, warning me of what would happen if I did. As far as I can tell so far, it seems to involve lots of foreign travel and not having to get up too early in the morning.”
