Publisher's Summary

A year after the devastating murder of his wife, attorney David Sloane has returned to Seattle after three months in Mexico. At a black-tie dinner where he’s been persuaded to give the keynote address, Sloane reconnects with Barclay Reid, opposing counsel in his most prominent case. Barclay is suffering from her own personal tragedy - the death of her teenage daughter from a drug overdose. In the aftermath, Barclay has begun an intense crusade against the Russian drug traffickers she holds responsible for her daughter’s death, pursuing them with a righteousness that matches Sloane’s own zeal for justice. Despite their adversarial past, Sloane is drawn to Barclay and for the first time since his wife died, he finds himself beginning to have romantic feelings again. But when Barclay’s crusade stalls and a Russian drug dealer turns up dead, she stands accused of murder, and Sloane is her chosen defender. Amid the swirling media frenzy, in his first criminal case, Sloane finds himself once again in harm’s way, while mounting evidence suggests that Barclay is a woman with many secrets - and may not be quite as innocent as she seems.

With his signature fast-paced, page-turning action and exhilarating plot twists, Robert Dugoni once again proves why he’s so often been named the heir to Grisham’s literary throne.

    I love espionage, legal, and detective thrillers but listen to most genres. Very frequent reviews. No plot spoilers! Please excuse my typos!

    "A 5 star legal thriller in the David Sloane series"

    I like Robert Dugoni's Tracy Crosswhite detective thriller series more than his David Sloane legal thriller series. Nevertheless, this David Sloane thriller is outstanding. The twist near the end gets this novel extra credit. There is lots of action and suspense both inside and outside the courtroom. Highly recommended.

    Story
    "Outstanding Legal Thriller"

    This is an outstanding legal thriller that I read based on a recommendation from author Diana Gabaldon. The novel starts off very slowly, introducing a plethora of characters.
    Initially, the story proved to be very confusing and I almost gave up, but forged ahead based on the recommendation. Gradually, I realized my confusion stemmed from the fact that this book is in the middle of the series, each story building on the prior. The remedy proved to be rereading each early encounter until I became familiar with the various characters.
    The story is very complex and with many twists and turns. I guarantee you won't guess the murderer until the very end, even though all the clues were there.
    I liked this book so much that I am now going back and reading the rest of the series.

    "Disappointed"

    Wow I can't believe this book has merited such high ratings. I had to stop listening to "Murder One" about an hour into it because I found the narration so annoying. Then I checked it out from the library and found it so suspenseful on the written page that I didn't want to put it down so I listened to it parts of it on my commute to work. My criticism of the audiobook is the narrator sounds ridiculous when he does female voices – like a man pretending to be a woman in a comedy sketch. Worse than that is all the black characters sound fresh from the plantation – even a highly educated man raised in a wealthy family in northern California.
    The story however definitely held my interest so I would recommend reading rather than listening to this thriller.

    "Keeps you guessing. "

    I love the back and forth of "who did it". Another great listen of the ups & downs for David Sloane.

    "Boring, boring, boring"

    Couldn't get past the 3rd chapter for all the irrelevant blather. I have some 300 books in my Audible library and this is the most boring.

    "not for me"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I just could not get into this book.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Robert Dugoni again?

    yes. I loved my sisters grave.
