After five grueling years, Robert Worth is just days away from making partner at a powerful Santa Monica law firm. When a client confides in him that senior partner Jack Pierce sexually assaulted her, Robert breaks two of his mentor's cardinal rules: Never let yourself get emotional about clients. And never make an enemy of Jack Pierce. Robert crosses Pierce and is fired on the spot, losing not only his job but also his reputation. Advised to go quietly, Robert vows revenge against the ruthless man who betrayed him.
This review is more for the narration than than the twisty, turny, yet still somewhat bland story...
The narrator's voice and tone had me confused the ENTIRE book. I usually finish an audiobook in a day, sometimes 2 and this one has taken me 2 weeks! I got soooo annoyed because I couldn't tell when something was supposed to be suspenseful or not. Even the ladies voices always seemed to indicate a huge plot twist was coming. My heart rate seriously never went down while listening. This is despite the story actually being a bit a bland and procedural... I might give this author a shot again, but only if I actually intend to READ not listen.

With money and hope in short supply, newly minted attorney Brigham Theodore decides it’s time to lower his standards. He joins a seedy fly-by-night firm in Salt Lake City out of desperation. After he loses his first case - a speeding ticket - he’s convinced his career is over. But to his shock, his boss hands him a slightly more complex case: capital murder.
Mediocre story, unnecessarily graphic, and I STILL can't figure out what happened to mobster practice owner (who may or may not have possessed two testicles...). I mean, I listened to the whole thing on audiobook in one day at work. Seems like the author could have done a lot more to flesh out some of the gaping holes in the story. The most imagination there was in the entire story felt like it all went into the sickeningly horrific details of the little girls' murder. And if it helps, yes I'm a mom. But I still don't think most people want to read that kind of stuff.
