September 18 - October 13, 2023 Virtual Book Tour
In this lawyer on the run action suspense, attorney Quinton Bell loses the trial of his career, and possibly his life.
Dead By Proxy takes you on a heart-pounding journey through the life of a criminal defense attorney, whose world is wiped out. When Quinton loses a career-defining case, he finds himself being hunted by the very client he tried to save.
As Quinton navigates the treacherous path of survival, he is running from a powerful and relentless adversary who will stop at nothing to see him silenced. Finally landing in Houston, he hides in plain sight while re-inventing his new life as a trial lawyer.
When he’s forced to take on a high-profile murder case, he exposes himself and those he loves to danger. With each passing moment, the noose tightens, and he must draw on every ounce of wit to outsmart those who still want him dead.
Will Quinton Bell find a way out, or will he forever be a target in a deadly game of cat and mouse?
Dead By Proxy is the first book in the edgy Proxy Legal Thriller Series. If you like memorable characters, smart gritty action, and jaw-dropping twists, then you’ll love Manning Wolfe’s fast-paced page-turner.

"A riveting read that expertly teams courtroom drama and legal maneuvering with imminent danger, spine-tingling suspense, a touch of romance, and non-stop action. Talk about an adrenaline rush!"

In Dead by Proxy, Quinton Bell loses a career-defining case and finds himself being hunted by the client he tried to save. As Quinton navigates the treacherous path of survival, he is running from a powerful and relentless adversary who will stop at nothing to see him silenced. Finally landing in Houston, he hides in plain slight while re-inventing his new life as a trial lawyer.
As a child I imagined I’d be an attorney when I grew up. Instead, I fell in love with psychology and took a different route. My guilty pleasure is legal thrillers and I live vicariously through them. This is my first book by this author, and I am hooked! The characters are well written and full of depth. The cat and mouse elements combined with an action-packed adventure.
The details are descriptive, and I felt like I was a fly on the wall the entire time. Being set in Houston brought back fond memories of the years I lived in the Bayou city. I was also sucked in by all the drama in this story from the court room to the personalities I couldn’t put this book down. The red herrings were perfect, I didn’t see the final twist coming and loved it!
Dead by Proxy is the first in the A Lawyer on the Run Action Suspense series. I am anxiously awaiting book number 2 and look forward to accompanying Quinton on his next adventure. I also look forward to seeing how the characters develop and mature.
