San Francisco judge Ramsey Hunt, longtime friend to FBI agents Lacey Sherlock and Dillon Savich, begins the murder trial of Clive and Cindy Cahill only to have federal prosecutor Mickey O’Rourke, known for his relentless, aggressive style, suddenly turn tentative and distracted. Hunt suspects that something is very wrong — and then O’Rourke goes missing, and Judge Hunt gets shot in the back.
Savich and Sherlock receive news of the attack as a mysterious note is delivered to Savich at the Hoover Building: FOR WHAT YOU DID YOU DESERVE THIS. Who sent the note? What does it mean?
As Ramsey Hunt’s life hangs in the balance, Savich and Sherlock race to San Francisco to answer the question: Why would anyone shoot the judge? When they discover one answer, more questions arise, until Savich and Sherlock face the final shock.

TECHNICAL: I couldn’t bear to listen to this poorly structured and very unpleasing recording. Not sure how much of the problem was the producer and how much was due to the pitiful voice acting.
PERFORMANCE: Bad, bad voice actors. Replete with abrupt and jarring transitions. PS: this was not listed as a dramatization. [Folks, I hope you will be more careful about the projects you choose in the future.]
STORY: Terrible, terrible dialog. URG! Weak story/plot. I will avoid her work from here on out.
The narraters were very distracting. I couldn’t concrete on the story because the narraters were very distracting.
Have someone else read the book.
Those children voices were just terrible.
the top 20%. I read alot!!
a fresh breath
yes, it hit alot of emotions
keep writing Coulter
THE NARRATION ON BACK FIRE MAKES YOU WANT TO GRAB YOUR I POD AND THROW IT OUT THE WINDOW. I LISTEN TO TONS OF BOOKS BUT THIS IS PERHAPS THE WORST NARRATED BOOK THAT I HAVE EVER PURCHASED. I WILL NEVER PURCHASE A BOOK WITH THIS INDIVIDUAL DOING THE READING. THIS WAS A COMPLETE WASTE OF MONEY
CUT THE HORRIBLE BABBY TALK OUT OF THE BOOK. IT SOUNDS TERRIBLE
DO NOT BY THIS BOOK IT IS TERRIBLE
I had a hard time with the narration of children's voices. It was annoying and sappy. Kids in a thriller just don't fit for me. Perhaps I would feel different if I was reading it myself vs. listening to it. I couldn't even get through it.
Bad story, ridiculous dialog - really don't waste your time.
People don't really talk like this.
Have someone else read the book.
I really couldnt listen past 3 hours.
Jim Meskimen - yes. Deanna Hurst - never again, unless she promises to never do a child voice again in her life
I have turned many people on to this series. I like the suspence and the characters. I do think that I would recommend a book to the audiobook.
I liked the protection details on Ramsey Hunt, how Eve watched out for him and his family.
I think I would prefer to hear a single male narrator instead of the male/female interaction. I found that the dramatic voices were really distracting. I really liked Jim's voice but though Deanna did amazing at differentiating between the female characters, I would prefer just a male voice for this series.
I had no extreme reaction. It was easy to walk away from due to the narration. Emma didn't seem like a regular little girl. It distracted me. Her character didn't seem realistic, too perfect and plastic. I will probably read the next book instead of listen.
I don't want to ding this book at all, however I really appreciate honest reviews by other readers. I like that there is no graphic sexual interaction but there is great tease between Catherine's characters. I will always be looking out for the next Dillon Savich/Lacy Sherlock story. Thanks Ms. Coulter for a great series with awesome characters.
The story was one that brought you back to old characters and old friends. Lots of very corny "cop talk".
