Greek billionaire playboy Nikolas Constantinos intended to conclude the business deal with Jessica Stanton, a.k.a. The Black Widow, as quickly as possible. Love hadn't been part of his plan. A hot affair or a one-night stand was all he'd allow. Because love would lead to marriage. And marriage to Jessica, a woman with a scandalous past, could ruin him. But love was the one thing he couldn't control.

I don’t like men who are bullies, won’t listen & treat women like chattel. Even less do I respect women that allow it. Regardless of the ending. I’ll read other reviews & The summery more carefully before I purchase another of her books.

The 1st & Last story rate 4 Stars as due the performers. The middle 2 do not deserve 2 stars for either the stories or the readers. Had to turn both my car & Bose headsets up to almost max & still could not always understand them. The stories changed time, directions or drug on with little meaning or purpose.

A startling and original courtroom drama from New York Times best seller John Grisham that is the prequel to his newest legal thriller, The Whistler. A judge's first murder trial. A defense attorney in over his head. A prosecutor out for blood and glory. The accused, who is possibly innocent. And the killer, who may have just committed the perfect crime.

On a score of 1 to 5 this is a 10 in my scoring. Make time to finish it as you won't want to put it down. Expert writing keeps you wondering what will come next. History references will have you revisiting what you thought you knew. I love all of the Clive Cussler books but this will be extremely difficult to top by any of my favorite authors.

Too many references & going over what happened in the prior book made this longer than it should have been. Main character, Lucy, sounds like a whinny child with no confidence; her partners & team don't like her and don't seem to want her around. Her own family can't trust her emotions. I really expected her to be stronger and an asset to the family by now.
