womens murder club: director sanvers edition
for anyone who doesnt know of the james patterson series of the same name, the premise is this: a detective, a lawyer, a reporter and a coroner are all friends - given their lines of work they often have some of the same cases on their plates. it leads to all kinds of shenanigans.
now, i present to you:
fresh from gotham pd, she’s hoping that national city will be the fresh start she’s looking for.
except, at her very first crime scene she sees the coroner, of all people, chatting with a reporter. maggie, not having any off this bullshit. she doesn’t care how attractive the woman might be. who does the medical examiner think she is?
chief medical examiner for national city, thank you very much. the youngest chief in history, with a reputation that precedes her - maggie sawyer didn’t do much in the way of making a friend when she approached the ME, declaring
“at my crime scenes we don’t talk to the press.”
and alex, utterly unimpressed “i didn’t think i needed your permission to talk to my little sister detective.”
reporter, also alex danvers’ little sister.
maggie sawyer wishes the ground would just open beneath her feet already because now she’s made a fool of herself in front of the chief medical examiner, and her sister.
who only writes one of the most popular crime columns in the city.
now, alex and lucy are friends. maggie has caught them interacting at alex’s office and she can’t quite pin down what’s going on between them.
kara on the other hand has no interest if her sister and her friend are hooking up.
[spoiler alert: they are]
former jag, now an ada for national city - she’s got a winning record that has the biggest defense firms in the country begging for her to come work for them. but lucy lane always, always turns them down.
she office meets detective maggie sawyer over the course of maggies first case,
she’s impressed. impressed with how sawyer handled the case “including,” lucy says with a smirk “no leaks to the press.”
and honestly maggie should have known right then and there she was screwed.
the first, both official and unofficial gathering of what kara will dub ‘the murder club’ will be after a successful conviction of maggie’s first case, lucy prosecuted, alex was the ME - and kara getting an above the fold, page one by-line in her telling of the case.
the shenanigans are limitless.
