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.

Although the two readers were disconcerting at first, it quickly became internal to the rhythm of the book.

Not that I am aware of
The friendships and the love.
Not really. Too much predictable gore as it moved into the climax.
"He said." "She said." too often. Sometimes a male voice, then a beat, then a female voice saying, "he said." Sheesh - no exclaimed, or shouted or cried, just 'said'.
Narration really slowed down the suspense and hampered the storyline. Are these narrators tired of doing this?
Sometimes male and female changed off with each other with no rhyme or reason, just enough to make the story not flow.
The story is decent, the writing and characters are cheeseball express to cheddarville. Not worth a credit IMO, but worth the cost of a deal of the day sale, which is how I got it.
once again a great listen. I love Catherine Coulter's FBI series. I plug in my ear buds and listen for hours. Catherine's stories grab you from the first, and have you on a roller-coaster ride to the end.
I love to read, the books need to be fairly complicated or interesting in their own way. I belong to a book club that selects great books.
Enjoyed Sherlock and her husband In this book. Well written and suspenseful. Liked the dialogue and the pace of the book was perfect.
I could not wait to listen to the entire book. Very suspenseful story to the end. And full of surprises.
Very well told.
I almost never give up on a book. I can usually muddle through the most challenging writing so that my review is based on the complete work. Not this time. I didn't make it past chapter 10. Using multiple narrators is usually a good thing but in this case it's just irritating. This story just never caught my attention. I've been trying to get through this book for a year. I give up.
I think fans of C.C. will like or love this book. I couldn't get past the Narration. I had just listened to book 2 and that narrator was awesome.
The plot was good. The story moved along at a good pace.
They lacked anima. They just seemed flat. I should say I had just listened to book two and was comparing, without intension. Book two narration made the characters come to life.
I was disappointed because I love the characters Savage and Sherlock. In this book they seemed like different characters.
I think if you hadn't listened to other narrators portray Savage and Sherlock you might really enjoy this book.
