San Francisco attorney Mike Webster does not lose medical-malpractice cases. But his stellar reputation and faith are put to the test when he agrees to defend Dr. Johanna Anderson, a brilliant and beautiful psychologist. Jo is accused of failing to prevent the death of Seth Bell, a senator's son she was treating with a revolutionary technology-assisted therapy called the Mind's Eye. The controversial technique provides insights into what patients are thinking and feeling and determines whether they're telling the truth - so why didn't it detect that Seth was suicidal?
As the case unfolds, a shadowy firm, Horizon Finance, sees a golden opportunity to profit by seizing the Mind's Eye and auctioning it to intelligence services around the world. And Horizon will stop at nothing - not even murder - to succeed. As the danger escalates, Mike and Jo feel the heat of a mutual attraction. But when Mike's loyal paralegal, Val, unearths evidence that could blow the case apart, Mike realizes he stands to lose much more than just a verdict.

I love espionage, legal, and detective thrillers but listen to most genres. Very frequent reviews. No plot spoilers! Please excuse my typos!
Author Rick Acker wrote a great 8 hour legal suspense novel then ruined everything by turning the last hour into religious sermonizing and a Biblical seminar. Narration was superb.
OK, very intriguing premise with an inconsistent story arc but still held my interest. Alexander Cendese was very good, except for female voices, if there was anytime a second narrator was needed it is here. Some male voices were difficult to distinguish but still good Male voice. It was NOT that religious at all as another reviewer said, just an introduction to a new direction for the main character. It could have been better as I had a strong interest with the device to 'mind read' so I had higher hopes but I liked the courtroom scenes, sometimes it did not flow but overall I think it was pretty good, and may check out Rick Acker's 2 book series soon.
