This page is about the book, Almost a Murder, by Jody Seay and Jim Lloyd

“Every now and then a monster writing talent rockets into the literary world. Such a writer is Jody Seay. There is something about the way she magically strings words together that makes you just proud to be a member of the human race.”  – Susan Chernak McElroy, NY Times best-selling author

In this REAL-LIFE COURTROOM DRAMA, “ALMOST A MURDER”, Seay and Lloyd recount how a wealthy “Son of Oklahoma” is slain by his delicate foreign wife. To the police, the brutal facts are clear: she cracked his skull with a bat, shot him twice, she strangled him, dumped his naked body; lied repeatedly and then, when cornered, she confessed.

Everyone believes it’s going to be a slam-dunk murder trial. 

But Jim Lloyd (a cub lawyer) when he reluctantly comes to her defense in a completely lopsided contest. He puts his family and future in jeopardy to defend a killer with no friends, no money, and who barely speaks English. They stand against powerful political and financial forces in this epic battle between retribution and truth and American law.

Ultimately this REAL-LIFE LEGAL THRILLER is one of the most studied legal clashes in US law today.  Read an award-winning author’s spellbinding account of uncertain justice, fight for family, and a struggle to do what’s right. 

“The reader invests themselves absolutely. Who wouldn’t want a ‘Jim Lloyd’ to defend them when it really matters?” 

– Mark Lindberg, Attorney & Business Law Professor at Oral Roberts University

“The regional tone is captured perfectly as are the insightful portrayal of the lawyers, judges, family members, and others involved in this real-life battle. Seay depicts all the drama, the humanity and, yes, even the painful self-examination as it happened in this great Oklahoma courtroom.” – Jaki Fey, author of “The Last Goose Concert” and “Wolf In My Pocket
