    "Good Description of Criminal Trial"

    If you like legal procedurals, this is a good one. But there are some unbelievable moments in the story, so you have to be able to suspend reality to fully enjoy this one.

    "Amazing!"

    This is an amazing debut in the legal thriller genre. Actually, and fortunately, it's more legal than thriller, which means it moves forward based on compelling and believable plot rather than chases, shootouts, etc. The trial process is quite realistic as are all the characters. The prosecutors aren't one-dimensional enemies looking to convict the innocent; they are realistic prosecutors doing a realistic job. Ditto the judge; he's not a hanging judge. He's a judge who wants to get it right as best he can, like so many in real life. The thrill element does exist, but it's not overwhelming. I'm also glad that we;'re not burdened with a lot of boredom about unresolved father issues, as is the case with so many fictional lawyer protagonists.

    I don't want to give things way; suffice it to say this is an audio book you will enjoy if you appreciate this genre.
