Don't know what I want to be when I grow up. Trip's cool though. Use Audible to make gym-training sane... And rip my imagination.
Wonderful courtroom drama. Great see-saw both in and out of court as Mickey Heller struggles with mob, murder, and his ex-wife. I cannot wait for the next Lincoln Lawyer novel... although I'm hoping he won't be leaving the criminal defense bar. Peter Giles is pitch perfect. This is the best in the series so far and Connelly worked hard and it showed. Nice to hear the value of your purchase in extensive preparation and research. Also like it that Heller stands on his own here without the aid of his half brother Harry Bosch. I'd recommend though that you start this series at the beginning... it's not essential but each is good and they fit together perfectly.
Disguised as a mystery/thriller/courtroom drama, damn if this isn't a full bodied novel... LITERATURE! Hey, that's sneaky. But Coben has such power to plot and develop characters that he's created a vehicle to investigate both the cultural glue of family and the fragility of hope in the face of fear.
Gotta admit that Scott Brick, who I've criticized in the past for the portentention of his presentations – has burst through that single dimension and justified for me the esteem which many of his fans express.
This is both an entertaining and THOUGHTFUL read. I'm a Coben fan, but this is one of his best (so far... I started with his earliest and now I'm off to read more).
Don’t buy this book! If… if you have NOT read Rosenfelt’s Andy Carpenter series from the beginning. Okay, this novel sizzles. It’s tightly plotted, the dialogue sparkles, the ensemble cast work tighter together thana Super Bowl defensive line. I reeeeely like these people. And Grover Gardener brings them alive. I cannot imagine anyone else “playing” smart-ass attorney Andy Gardner. Nope… change that… I don’t want to imagine anyone else.
The thing is that while Dog Tags stands alone, it refers back from time to time to cool stuff the characters did in early books. Which might spoil them for you. Soooooo… don’t take the chance.
If you’ve listened to (in order) Open And Shut, First Degree, Dead Center, and Play Dead… well, wuddahell… Get Dog Tags… listen and lovvit. Otherwise… Treat yourself from the beginning and... Don’t buy this book! Kay?
