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
I am not sure. I didn't finish this book. It was not particularly interesting and I am a bit surprised at the positive reviews (which is why I purchased it).
He just wasn't very good. Sometimes a good narrator can save a poor book. I am not sure that would happen in this case, but I didn't really like this narrator.
The hero was just a bit too agonized to be believable. His traumatic past was not well developed, or perhaps it wasn't traumatic enough to justify all the angst! Not believable.
First book in a long time that I completed without going to another midway!! I would recommend this book and narrator to family and friends.
This is the second book that I have read by the author Adam Mitzner, and I am sure it will not be my last. His writing is very good and he did a great job in showing the grief that the main character, Dan Sorensen, felt in the death of his wife and daughter.
The plot definitely had a surprise ending! The narrator, Kevin Collins, was excellent.
I look forward to reading his 3rd novel, "Losing Faith."
I do a lot of reading. I like all types of books from Stephen King to Nicolas Sparks. I also enjoy the 50 shades series. This is the first book I have read from Adam Mitzner. I can say with 100% certainty it won't be my last. This book had me from page one. I didn't see any of the twists coming. I think the courtroom scenes were believable. (In that, in many books, I feel the writer makes the judge "pick" on our hero more than would be believable.) This book had a great hero and the whole story developed the characters very well. Yayyyy me for finding a new author to enjoy.
Excellent legal thriller! Eighteen months ago, Dan Sorenson was a successful young attorney with a large law firm in New York when he won a high profile case defending a star football player accused of rape. The following day his wife and daughter were killed in a car accident. He resigned from the law firm and spent 18 months drowning his sorrows in Scotch. Then he met Nina, who convinced him to defend a rapper named Legally Dead who was charged with the murder of Roxanne, a rising pop star. That is his new beginning and the beginning of many surprise twists and turns with the biggest surprises near the end. I would never have guessed this ending. Great Grisham like legal thriller!
Collins makes stories better than they really are. The plot and writing of the novel were mediocre, but Collins draws you into the characters' feelings and keeps you on the edge of your seat with his urgent telling. Lots of fun.
The narrator was excellent!
Story was great with a really unexpected twist right at the end
The language was sometimes coarse at inappropriate places
Blasphemy was very off putting
