I hated all 3 major characters. Inter-relation didn’t occur until nearly the end. They were all 2 dimensional. Reasoning (Audible) was abominable.

Author seemed very familiar with the law.
Explored all sides of case and conclusion seemed plausible.

There are just so many coincidences one can accept when it comes to mysteries. This book, though reasonably well written, had too many large coincidences. The translation was generally good, but occasionally not.

I had only two issues with this audio book. One had to do with the content the second with the reading. The reading was actually excellent except that when edited there should have been longer gaps between changes in action/location.I found myself confused by the shift in who we were talking about.with respect to the content, I always have trouble when the protagonist chooses to go it alone rather than involve the police. It's especially frustrating when that someone is on the path to discovery, but chooses notto document what he has accomplished in the event that he is killed or something else occurs.The reader knows, obviously, that when the protagonist decides to go it alone, something will go wrong.as a reader, I just want to take that protagonist and shake him and say wake up idiot.

A high powered attorney on a major case for a huge law firm hears on the phone that a contact she's never even met is accosted and screaming after he conveniently forgets to hang up. What does the attorney do? Call the police to investigate? No, she jumps on a red eye flight to go to his apartment and investigate it herself.

Unfortunately this is not just one stupid contrivance, but rather one of the dozens in this idiotic book. I will stay away from this author forever.
