  • "Grisham Light"

    Overall

    Story

    This story had lawyers, criminals, victims, bad guys, good guys and the usual cast found in Grisham novels. But it wasn't typical Grisham. I think the story was so far fetched that it seemed like the work of another author. Everything had to fall into place and, of course, everything did. What I liked about the story is that I wasn't able to guess what the blazes was going on until Grisham slowly revealed it. Thus my interest was piqued throughout. But the aspect that I liked was also the aspect I disliked. There was no way to really do any sleuthing with this one. You simply had to wait it out to see what would happen. Not great literature but an enjoyable listen.

    Given the importance of what they do, and the controversies that often surround them, and the violent people they sometimes confront, it is remarkable that in the history of this country only four active federal judges have been murdered. Judge Raymond Fawcett has just become number five.... Nothing is as it seems and everything’s fair game in this wickedly clever new novel from John Grisham, the undisputed master of the legal thriller.

  • "One of Grisham's best"

    Overall

    I hesitated to purchase this because of the reviews that called it depressing. I liked much of Grisham's earlier works and this is one that I had yet to read. I'm glad I took a chance. The Chamber is a compelling story with excellent character development and just enough detail to make you familiar with its settings. And Michael Beck is just superb. I can't imagine the story being read any better. Grisham's expertise is best illustrated by the fact that Sam is a totally unlikable character who, by book's end, will capture the reader's empathy. The premise of the novel is somewhat of a stretch as are some of the events that take place. But all that's trumped by the masterful way that Grisham told this story. I haven't changed my opinion on capital punishment, but the novel made me think without detracting from its entertainment value. That is rare. I think this book will appeal to liberals, conservatives, capital punishment supporters and capital punishment opponents alike. It's good. Download and enjoy.

  • "Well-constructed plot"

    Overall

    This book was well-written and didn't leave the impression, as many thrillers do, that the author was making plot decisions on the fly. I personally had the wrong person pegged as the villain, but when the mystery unfolded, everything fell logically into place. The narrator did an excellent job on altering his tone and cadence, allowing for quick identification of who was speaking. Not the best book that was ever written but it did well on all counts and synergistically earned five stars. An excellent offering by Lescroart.

When his body is found, inspectors discover that his knapsack is filled with high-grade marijuana. It soon becomes clear that San Francisco's A-list flocked to Bay Beans West not only for their caffeine fix. But how much did Maya Townshend - the beautiful socialite niece of the city's mayor, and the absentee owner of the shop - know about what was going on inside her business?

Kathi's greatest hits:
  • The Advocate: The Advocate, Book 1

    "Close--but not quite a page turner"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    For a first book in (what appears to be a series) this is not too bad. There is a lot of action--as Sabre Brown, an attorney who is a child advocate, takes on a case that will lead to strings of investigations that even become personal. I basically liked the book, don't think the narrator did anything to help it (even hindered in spots--think she hasn't really hit her stride here yet), but the outline was good. Sabre and her friend Bob are on the track of finding out why a young girl shouldn't be sent back to her father, an apparently wonderful parent. This investigation takes her across the country to Georgia to find some of the missing pieces, and some of the action takes place there.

    I guess I'd give this book a "wavy hand"--nothing to write home about, yet I did like the author using the angle of Sabre being a child advocate. That's an interesting area of the law--and one that has great human appeal. The story moves, the characters are well fleshed out, and I would listen to the next one in the series. I suspect this author is going to improve with each book--she has good potential. (Wouldn't mind a different narrator though).

  • Presumed Innocent

    "Great courtroom thriller; really great narration!"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    This is Scott Turow's first book in what I understand will become a long line of good legal mysteries. Can't think what to say about this book that hasn't already been said by everyone else. It's old now (written in 1987) but I am just getting started on his books, which I had always heard were wonderful thrillers but somehow missed reading or seeing the films. This did not disappoint in any way, and didn't lack anything for being slightly ahead of cell phones and electronics, which have revolutionized mystery books forever. In fact, I rather prefer the books that are still pre-computerized and rely on old fashioned ingenuity.

    Rusty Sabich is a prosecutor in a mid-west state who is also working to try to get his boss re-elected. When that doesn't happen, and Nico Della Guardia wins the election, he realizes that things will change. But he had not banked on a colleague getting murdered, and himself getting charged with it. A great deal of the book takes place during the trial, and is quite interesting with lots of twists, turns and surprises. The story moves well, and even though I had assumed some things about the ending, I actually had not figured it out.

    This book has similarities to the exciting page-turner John Grishom style of writing, but I believe it preceded those, so this may be the trend-setter here for a lot more subsequently done in similar style. I must say a little about the narrator. I found his ability to do voices to be superb! He shifted back and forth between a lot of different people and it was always clear who was speaking. He did a particularly good job with the voice of Sandy Stern, very light, gentle, yet assertive in the courtroom. If you are like me, one of the dozen or so people on the planet who missed the book or movie of "Presumed Innocent," I can strongly recommend this book. I really enjoyed listening to it!

  • The Gods of Guilt

    "Mickey Haller on the job again!"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    In this sequel to Lincoln Lawyer, Connelly has done it again. Keeping the usual cast of characters, he is still working out of his Lincoln, this time representing a man he feels sure is not only innocent, but discovers the murdered woman is a client he has represented as well in the past, which leads to having to go back to that case to help solve the present one.

    The story flows well, never slow. But if I did have just the smallest of criticisms (and this is very small--but was slightly annoying) for some reason, Connelly used an unusual number of phrases (such as calling a courtroom strategy a "depth charge") over and over--causing them to lose their "punch" a bit. However, that does not detract from a great story--hard to stop listening to it (in fact, stayed up into wee hours of morning to finish it.

    Unfortunately, I think Adam Grupper (who narrated "Lincoln Lawyer") did a far better job than Peter Giles--who seems a so-so reader. Not bad, but lacked a little something.

    This is still a really good book, and I do truly recommend it--if you like Michael Connelly's works, you will enjoy this one.

    3 of 3 helpful votes

    Joseph Finder has yet to fail me as an author of fast passed , intriguing, real life thrillers! Once again, HIGH CRIMES, presents a situation that makes me shudder with possibilities of happenings that boggle the mind.

    In this story, Harvard Law Professor, Clair Chapman, is called upon to defend the man who has been her husband for three years. She has known him as Tom Chapman, a great husband, and father to her 6 year old daughter, Annie. But the military has arrested him as Ron Kubik, a brutal murderer of 87 innocent men., women and children in an offensive action in San Salvador 13 years earlier. Clair wonders who this man really is, as he has told her a complete past history that does not involve the military in any way. Can she believe anything he says? But the man she knows would never commit such terrible acts of violence!

    Clair, and defense lawyers used to the military counts, find themselves up against a formidable prosecutor, and a 'take no prisoners' judge. The court marshall scenes and legal actions add great interest and suspense to this 'believe him or not' mystery. Finder puts the reader in a plausible situation that would give nightmares if this were a situation that the reader ever found themselves maneuvering through in their own family. great read!!

    Seth Hubbard is a wealthy man dying of lung cancer. He trusts no one. Before he hangs himself from a sycamore tree, Hubbard leaves a new, handwritten, will. It is an act that drags his adult children, his black maid, and Jake into a conflict as riveting and dramatic as the murder trial that made Brigance one of Ford County's most notorious citizens, just three years earlier. The second will raises far more questions than it answers. Why would Hubbard leave nearly all of his fortune to his maid? Had chemotherapy and painkillers affected his ability to think clearly?

In prison these judges-turned-felons can reminisce about old court cases, dispense a little jailhouse justice, and contemplate where their lives went wrong. Or they can use their time in prison to get very rich, very fast.

    High summer in Acker's Gap, West Virginia - but no one's enjoying the rugged natural landscape. Not while a killer stalks the small town and its hard-luck inhabitants. County prosecutor Bell Elkins and Sheriff Nick Fogelsong are stymied by a murderer who seems to come and go like smoke on the mountain. At the same time, Bell must deal with the return from prison of her sister, Shirley - who, like Bell, carries the indelible scars of a savage past.

Even as the besieged attorney looks after his ailing wife, Feaver must also make tapes that will hurl his friends, his enemies, his city, and a particular FBI undercover agent into a crisis of conscience and law.
