C.E. Tobisman


C.E. Tobisman is the author of DOUBT, published by Thomas & Mercer in August 2016, and a sequel, PROOF, which was published in 2017 and won the Harper Lee Prize for Legal Fiction.

An of-the-moment legal thriller, DOUBT introduces Caroline Auden, a rookie attorney with a troubled background and a penchant for hacking, who has to prove that a shadowy biotech company is responsible for thousands of deaths—before they come after her.

In the sequel, Caroline struggles to keep her fledgling practice afloat—and her paranoia in check. When her grandmother dies, she mourns losing the only constant in her life. But grief soon turns to suspicion when she discovers her grandmother left her entire estate to a charity called Oasis Care. On the surface, Oasis helps society’s outcasts, like Caroline’s alcoholic, homeless uncle. But as she digs deeper, Caroline uncovers a sinister plot that sends her running for her life on the dangerous streets of Los Angeles.

Plunged into a world of addicts and broken souls and operating without a phone or a computer, Caroline finds sanctuary with her uncle and a ragtag group of outcasts while building evidence for her case. As she sifts through the shadowy world of the Goliath nonprofit, Caroline is also forced to confront her own dark shadows, casting doubt on her ability—and her sanity.

C.E. Tobisman is an appellate attorney in Los Angeles, where she lives with her wife and three children.
