This was my first time listening to this category and I really enjoyed it! I think people that don't normally listen to legal mysteries would still enjoy this book. The book uses legal terminology but manages to say it in a way that you understand even if you don't know anything about the legal system. There are some parts that you see coming from chapter 1, but hold on because there will be a twist that you don't see! My mouth dropped open during the last chapter! I highly recommend this book!
I pretty much like everything about this book. It was well put together & the end shocked me. If you love a page turner, this is the book for you! :)
This is my 2nd book by this author and I am glad there is a 3rd. I could do without the profanity and sex which too many authors rely on
This is an OK listen. I have certainly listened to better books, so nothing to get too excited about.
He feels obliged to"act" each part, to translate the action as he interprets it. As a result he detracts from the story with his histaronics. One longs for the understatement of a Will Patton, or Simon Vance or other more careful readers.
I can find a book to love in any genre -- a beautifully written classic, an interesting mystery or sci-fi, a trashy romance. Bring it!
STORY (legal thriller) - I thoroughly enjoyed this book, but then I'm a real sucker for legal thrillers. A lawyer who's depressed after personal tragedy finds himself bouncing back as he represents a rap star accused of killing his girlfriend. There's a lot of your typical stuff where the lawyer investigates the case against his client and prepares for trial, and if you're a lawyer you will definitely roll your eyes at some of the departures from acceptable courtroom procedure. But the book is still a great listen, and there are two really unexpected twists at the end. I didn't see either one of them coming, so I was totally surprised!
PERFORMANCE - Very good job, but wasn't awesome so I'm rating it four stars.
OVERALL - Recommended for anyone who likes the genre. Some cursing and a few sex scenes, but they're not very explicit. Be prepared to hear lots and lots of talk about pubic hairs. Eeeeek!
Just when you think that this story has a clear ending and twist, it takes yet another turn to become something even more dynamic. I am a new fan of Adams books and he has quickly become one of my favorites.
In my opinion John Grisham is far superior of an author. He is able to spin his story without disrupting the flow with so much foul language. True talent doesn't need to resort to this. Good story. Excellent narration. Good story line. I just prefer a lot less language
If you like John Grisham you will like this author. In depth discussion of law. Unlike Grisham though the ending is well thought out. Narrator is very good too
