Poised to make partner at a high-powered L.A. law firm, Vernetta Henderson takes on what appears to be an open-and-shut case of sexual harassment. As the case proceeds, Vernetta soon begins to suspect that her corporate client may be involved in a far-reaching cover-up. The deeper she digs, the more the case spirals out of her control. Determined to find the truth, Vernetta eventually unravels a conspiracy of greed and violence that places her career - and her very life - at risk.

I love espionage, legal, and detective thrillers but listen to most genres. Very frequent reviews. No plot spoilers! Please excuse my typos!
Pamela Samuels Young writes legal thrillers that have the right balance of serious and fun. In Firm Pursuit is made even better by the outstanding narration of RC Bray.
I hope this series will go on and on and on! I'm hooked to say the least. These books are not being written fast enough. This was my Sunday entertainment, no commercials, no sitting in one place, I even went outside and did some gardening while still listening. In this book you get laugher and the edge of your set adventure with a little violence and the book is easy to follow. I love Vernetta's side kick Special she gives the book balance. R.C Bray just narrated this book with a female lead character and STILL knocked it out of the park.
The stories in the Vernetta Henderson series are super entertaining. As one reviewer said, the stories "are not being written fast enough." I was always tuned in listening and wanting to know what will happen next. This story is very relaxing with some violence (not over the top) and the storyline is very easy to follow. So I can be busy doing my gardening, washing dishes, house cleaning, etc. without worrying about zoning out and getting lost or missing something in the story.
Vernetta's side kick "Special" is really special... She is in all of the stories and her character provides lots of texture to the story and brings laughter with her never ending shenanigans which plays well into the storyline.
R.C Bray's narration is good.... even his female voices are okay. His performances are always excellent.
As much as I love Vernetta, Special is the most fun person ever. We all need a special friend like special. I love these books and although I complained (to Ms Young) about a man reading a female protagonist lead with the first book I do not even notice it now. Mr Bray is excellent and one of the best narrators to me. This was a super book. Great story. Believable, captivating and I hated to see it end. I've read all the Vernetta Henderson books now and can't wait for the next one Ms. Young is one of the best authors to me; she drops a lot of names with the clothes and such but I know people like that so that's real too! Keep up the excellent work Ms. Young. I am loving your stories, all of them and cannot wait for the next one!
Sometime writer...blogger...and overall lover of literary art!
I enjoyed this book- it seemed a bit drawn out in parts but overall I did like the story and I love the main character.
Got this as part of a series special. The first book didn't light any fires and this one assured that there would be no possibility of ignition. I've given this author a chance, but now I'm moving on to greener pastures.
The plot and twists were good, not great but good. The characters don't draw you in or make you care more than a little. The characters do grow on you.
No, probably not. Some people will like this book.
The voices were not great. The main characters are female and the narrator did not do them well. I think a different narrator would have made the book better.
No and no.
Some people will like this book. It has a decent mystery. I think the narration ruined the story for me. It could have been a 3 1/2 *
