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.

The story seems to be typical of Catherine Coulter's FBI series. The best patr of this book is the performance. What I usually hear with a two person performance is the male narrator reading from the male's point of view voicing the female's role like a single person read. Then the female will read from the woman's point of view, again voicing the man's role as in a single person read. This book, however, the men's dialogue is all done by the male reader; and the women's dialogue is all read by the woman, no matter who is doing the background narration. Very similar to an old radio program. An Outstanding Performance.
solid 8 out of 10
yes, one narrow escape after another, also Catherine brought characters from her other F.B.I books into the plot, I really like this.
no, the children's voices sounded like an adult trying to sound like a child the male voices did not match the characters
I wish this book had be narrated by Renee Redmond and Paul Costanzo the narrators of her last two F.B.I books they were excellent.
I love Catherine's FBI books but I couldn't get into this one but the narration and baby voices killed it. I wanted to hit something every time. After a while it seemed all I could hear were the children and those horrible voices instead of the adults so I gave up.
Lose the baby voices and listen to what kind of crap you are turning out.
the story and these characters. Savitch, Sherlock and the whole gang. Was waiting for the next in the series/
When they were in the elevator. don't want to give anything away. I was surprised how one of the villans came out of left field. ie: from the Judges background story.
A lot of the reviews I read complained about the narration so I debated about purchasing it, but I'm glad I did. I don't have a problem with the narration, sure when they do a little kid voice it's a little irritating, but thankfully that doesn't happen very often.
This was a nice continuation of the series, even if some parts may be a little predictable.
This one was a real disappointment. The story was unnecessarily complicated and frankly a bit boring compared to other books in this "series". The narration was also a definite disappointment. I admit I am not a fan of multiple narrators for one book and I found it distracting in this book. The male narrator in particular was very annoying, using exaggerated accents and overly babyish voices. The Tommy Lee Jones impression for one of the main male characters was particularly annoying. Overall, I'd say skip this book.
I enjoyed the story with the twists and turns throughout the book. Listening to the book with all the different voices was a joy and added a depth that I did not get reading the book.
