When a young reporter is found dead and a prominent Philadelphia businessman is accused of her murder, Mick McFarland finds himself involved in the case of his life. The defendant, David Hanson, is Mick's best friend, and the victim, a TV news reporter, had reached out to Mick for legal help only hours before her death. Mick's played both sides of Philadelphia's courtrooms. As a top-shelf defense attorney and former prosecutor, he knows all the tricks of the trade. And he'll need every one of them to win.

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

The narrator's voice is so unpleasant that it's hard to know if the story is any good.

Would you be willing to try another book from William L. Myers? Why or why not?

Not with this narrator.

How could the performance have been better?

I have NEVER written a review here, but this reading is so awful that I had to write a note.

Was A Criminal Defense worth the listening time?

No

Any additional comments?

I think I've said it all above. Just awful.
