I love espionage, legal, and detective thrillers but listen to most genres. Very frequent reviews. No plot spoilers! Please excuse my typos!
I'm becoming a big fan of legal thriller Pamela Samuels Young. This novel is in her Verndetta Henderson series. The novel deals with three primary cases. The first is a pro football star accused of rape but with insufficient evidence to charge, he is sued in civil court. The second is about a retail company accused of sexual discrimination. The third is a murder case. But mostly this novel is about lawyer Verndetta Henderson and he issues with a crooked female lawyer.
RC Bray is one of the elites among narrators. Listening to him is always fun.
The exploration into Islam.
Yes, but not wholeheartedly. Too much of the ho going on with both men and women. Too many of the women are over the top and mean.
Even though most of the characters are women, RC changes his voice enough so that I can tell them all apart. Vernetta is spot on.
I was appalled by the pushiness of Special. If she really wants to become a detective she will need to learn some tact and patience.
Why do all the current mysteries rely on murders and deaths? This series seems to be getting more violent as it goes on. I'll try one more but unless we get a real mystery, not just find the murderer, that will be it.
As I have said in a previous review, I appreciate the insight into Black Culture but now am wondering if the representation is true or not with all the cursing and sexism.
I've really enjoyed the Vernetta Henderson stories. I've read them all. This is the 4th in the series. It's really three stories in one which is about a pro football star who is accused of rape but there is not enough evidence to charge him so he is sued in civil court; a retail company accused of sexual discrimination; and a murder case. But most interesting is the ongoing issues Vernetta's has with an unscrupulous female colleague.
RC Bray is one of audible's top notch narrators. He pulls you into the story. One reviewer described his performance as "tv in a book."
First, this girl (Pamela Samuels young) right here combined with the narrator opened my eyes to the Mystery/Thriller genre.
People dying, business documents compromised, employee/er scandal…can you say TV in a book.
What I liked most – was that the Christian lady had unshakeable faith, no matter what was thrown her way, she stayed the course.
The battle of how the lawyers worked in/outside the court room/streets and office, was definitely intriguing to say the least (is this how it is really?).
Favorite Character: I’m not sure but I always lean toward the lead character as my favorite. I have been following the Vernetta Henderson series since book one. Vernetta is my girl. She is a go getter and she does it strictly by the book. She is a winner.
Without hesitation I would definitely recommend. I would strongly suggest this book and all others in the series. The narrator R.C. Bray delivers amazingly.
first off I received this audible edition for free for my honest review. I love Pamela Samuels young .. the narration is great as well .. I want to be vendetta Henderson she is strong , smart, and tough as nails, in fact stronger.. leagal thrillers are my favorite and Pamela Samuels young knocks it out the ballpark with her writing skills .. can't say enough.. love it!!!
