MARGARET MCLEAN TACKLES PREJUDICE, GREED, AND POLITICAL CORRUPTION IN HER SPELLBINDING BOOK, UNDER FIRE!
McLean has years of experience on television, radio, and in public speaking. As a guest on your show, McLean can discuss her real-life experiences as a former prosecutor in the courtroom, plus her reasons for writing novels that force readers to examine their attitudes towards America's legal system.
Drawing on her years of experience as a criminal prosecutor as well as her in-depth research, McLean has created spellbinding courtroom thrillers that touch on some of the most controversial topics in the news today. Under Fire features the trial of a black Muslim immigrant in what appears to be an open and shut case of arson and murder. But, as the case unwinds, readers start to learn that prejudice against Muslims, and unbridled greed and corruption are the true motivators behind the death of a heroic firefighter and the prosecution of an innocent woman.
McLean hopes that readers will not only be entertained by her books, but will walk away thinking about key issues that confront Americans today. Among some of the significant issues that she tackles are the prejudices that lead us to judge people unfairly because they may be immigrants, Muslims, or somehow different from us. In both Under Fire and Under Oath, McLean takes us behind the scenes of a jury trial, showing what various jurors think and how their personal biases affect their judgment. McLean draws from her own experiences for she recently served as a juror on a big federal case.
Other topics McLean can discuss:
- arson investigations and trials
- the misuse of eminent domain to seize private property.
- casinos and the greed behind certain lucrative real estate development projects
- the Whitey Bulger case (Her next book, Under Oath, features the dramatic trial of a Boston mob boss)
