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.

I don't think so
The narrator was okay, but the kids voices were so annoying
The dialog was lame and the plot was ridiculous. I would not recommend this book.
May have turned out to be a good story, but I couldn't get past the reader's baby talk in the first thirty minutes when doing the children's lines......if an author must put three and five year old kids in a book and include conversations with them, the editor should NEVER let the reader try to imitate with baby talk. No child actually talks like this. Gag
A little slow moving. The reader bugged me at first....a lot of He said She said which I am not used. Overall not great but good.
Yes going to listen to the book that tells what happened to Emma next.
Sci-fi, detective, cozy. Only give 5s to those books I think stand above the rest. 4 is a good solid book. 3 is average, nothing special.
Decent, nice twists. Some of the characters are a bit simplistic, but then I have only read a couple of the earlier books in the series.
Suspense, fascinating and riveting
I was so absorbed in this story, that while I was working around the house I finished in a record time. WOW. I will read more of her books ASAP. Many books in my wish list. Really good.
I'm an avid reader since childhood. I'm a retired science teacher, retired nuclear plant worker and grandmother of three. I love mysteries.
First the terrible narration was a real irritant. Either one of the narrators would have been better than the two of them together. It was irrational how they switched back and forth with all the he said/she said... nuts! The child voices were especially over the top ridiculous. I love listening to books but go with the print version of this for sure.
Second, I had trouble following the characters. I don't know the series so I didn't know who was who and Coulter switches between the first and last names so much it was really difficult for me to keep track. I find it easier to keep track of multiple characters in print but maybe that's just me.
Third, you really have to suspend disbelief in that the characters are shot/injured and hop up and keep going. Only the first guy shot is treated like it was a serious thing. I'm okay with that but some people insist on more reality and if that's you then you won't be happy with this.
If you are already a fan of this series then nothing on earth will stop you from reading this but I strongly suggest you go for the print. This isn't really my favorite genre but I'd read another from this series with a different narrator.
I didn't feel that the story was very well written. It was not worth the time. I did not want to finish listening to the book, but my husband insisted that we listen to the end.
Totally addicted to Audible.
This was my first book by this author. I liked the characters and the story was pretty good. Glad it was on sale and I did not spend a credit though.
Nurse, mom, loved to read....but now I love to listen. When I retire I hope to hear waves crashing in 1 ear and audible in the other!
I have always loved reading Savage and Sherlock's story but listening now brings them to life...I can picture them in my head while listening.
I actually liked the story of Eve and Harry...I feel a new storyline coming.....
I liked the banter between Eve and Harry, especially her reaction to "commitment issues!"
Any time Savage or Sherlock get injured I worry that Coulter will kill one of the off....
Like I said Savage and Sherlock are a little bored and settled in this book....Eve and Harry were really the stars.
