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'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.
Action ,adventure and a bit of a love story blended together. I love how the characters from previous stories are brought together again, each contributing special skills needed to solve the crime.
Character development is excellent
no about the same
the story line is good without all the sex (some is good, ...but) keeps you interested in what up.
I was distracted by the voice change. but i am easy to distract.
Didn't read print version
I have read all of this series, and I can't find another I like this well.
Male and Female voices and very good drama
Liked all of it
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.
