I love espionage, legal, and detective thrillers but listen to most genres. Very frequent reviews. No plot spoilers! Please excuse my typos!
Michael Gresham is a Chicago criminal lawyer with issues. The law firm he founded 30 years ago kicked him out so he is now on his own. His 45 year old ex-wife who he is paying $7500 monthly alimony is shacked up with a kid half her age and they are trying to have a baby. His older brother is the top civil law attorney in Chicago; well, he is when he is when not off his meds for his bipolar condition. Finally, Michael is defending an ex-con who killed the wife of the judge who sentenced him to prison. This book is a wild, if not entirely credible, ride. This novel is Book 1 of the three novel Michael Gresham series. Stephen Hoye does a nice job of narration, but I find his voice monotonous.
