    What kept this from a higher rating is its length it s very overwritten and the over the top conclusion, which seemed evenabsurd given how well the author depicted the courtroom scenes and judicial process he s a former lawyer There are also too many allusions to the O.J Simpson case, which is understandable given when this came out, and that the author had some connection to that case, but it grew intrusive There also needed to be a stronger central character Here we have two Gra What kept this from a higher rating is its length it s very overwritten and the over the top conclusion, which seemed evenabsurd given how well the author depicted the courtroom scenes and judicial process he s a former lawyer There are also too many allusions to the O.J Simpson case, which is understandable given when this came out, and that the author had some connection to that case, but it grew intrusive There also needed to be a stronger central character Here we have two Grace and Dickson and while they re nicely drawn, they battled for my allegiance

    The writing was overly cliched, but the story is good not a 4 but could bethan a 3.

    This book should have been shorter, but it still held my interest most of the time There are twists to the story and the characters are fun.

    This book is quite possibly one of the best legal thrillers ever written It begins in a pretty standard way the wife of socialite Eliot Ashford is discovered butchered in their home and all signs point to the husband The DA wants a conviction to boost his chances in the upcoming election the defense team simply wants to save their client s life and engages the help of Bear Barrett Dickson, former hotshot lawyer There isto this case than meets the eye, however and soon both sides are This book is quite possibly one of the best legal thrillers ever written It begins in a pretty standard way the wife of socialite Eliot Ashford is discovered butchered in their home and all signs point to the husband The DA wants a conviction to boost his chances in the upcoming election the defense team simply wants to save their client s life and engages the help of Bear Barrett Dickson, former hotshot lawyer There isto this case than meets the eye, however and soon both sides are simply hoping for a hung jury Dickson soon finds himself torn between his ethical duty as a lawyer and his moral duty as a citizen

    It was an ok story It could ve been so much better It was long, dragged out DA kept going back forth as to whether they should plea bargain, dismiss or proceed, all while the trial was going on No explanation whatsoever about the investigations into the 3 murders Andno follow up to the missing evidence where did it go, who may have taken it Yes the ADA had an idea where it went, but it was never investigated No cops in this story whatsoever I did like the main characters, Grace Har It was an ok story It could ve been so much better It was long, dragged out DA kept going back forth as to whether they should plea bargain, dismiss or proceed, all while the trial was going on No explanation whatsoever about the investigations into the 3 murders Andno follow up to the missing evidence where did it go, who may have taken it Yes the ADA had an idea where it went, but it was never investigated No cops in this story whatsoever I did like the main characters, Grace Harris and Dickson Barrett Too bad they weren t in a better book

    I tried the first Martel Partners and couldn t get in to it, This one, however, was very inviting Washed up attorney Barrett Dickson gets drawn into the high profile trial of an ex congressman who s wife was found brutally murdered The plot is further enhanced by a juror who is very involved in the case This story has almost too many facets but it was still a good read I am going to try is next one.

    The author is an attorney so the courtroom information is accurate, which I really like I hate reading books that you know the person has no idea what they are talking aboutsome fiction is like that, just thrown together for a quick buck and it s usually obvious Martel s books are very engrossing and I have a hard time putting them down this one definitely fit that bill.

    Picked this up on a whim at a bargain used book place, and I liked it surprisingly much Not usually a fan of courtroom dramas or anything concerning the Mafia, this had enough suspense and was enough of a psychological thriller, mingled with the courtroom lawyer Mafia angle, that it kept the pages turning for me A great twist about 3 4 of the way through that I did not see coming as well

  9. Kim Kim says:

    This book started out pretty good, but had a few random chapters, that were very obviously foreshadowing By about page 250, I had the entire plot and ending figured out and didn t see any need to keep reading for another 200 pages just to have it confirmed I liked the courtroom scenes and the flawed but good hearted defense attorney, but overall, I could have skipped this one and been okay.
