Usually the courtroom puppeteer, McFarland quickly finds himself at the end of Nunzio’s strings. Struggling to find grounds for a not-guilty verdict on behalf of a well-known killer, Mick is hamstrung by Nunzio’s refusal to tell him what really happened. On the other side of the law, Mick’s wife, Piper, is working to free Darlene Dowd, a woman sentenced to life in prison for her abusive father’s violent death.

I enjoyed the series storyline and the development of the characters one each. my problem was with the reader. she just couldn't do a proper male voice and very limited in good female voices.

store made the federal secret organizations seem to have nobody watching them. The old CIA and FBI run a mock as they did in the 1920' s. although the reader did an excellent job the story had problems.

What if you could paint with reality? Elijah Brighton can bring a girl back from the dead, travel outside his body, and absorb a lifetime of memories from anyone he touches in the fugue state. Everyone seems to think he's the prophet they're waiting for...including the girl he's falling in love with. The truth is, the fugue is bleeding over into reality, bringing his sketches to life and haunting him with visions of a girl in metal armor. She stabs him with her blade and denounces him as any prophet worth the name - and it's not like he disagrees.

characters were better presented in this book however the main characters learning curve could have been more logically developed. ending left a lot of questions as to what happened to the other characters.

Elijah Brighton is the face of the Human Resistance Movement. He's the Olympic-level painter who refused an offer of immortality from the ascenders - the human/machine hybrids who run the world - in solidarity with the legacy humans who will never get a chance to live forever. Worse, Eli's not even entirely human. Few know about the ascenders' genetic experiments that left him...different. Fewer know about the state that creates his transcendent art - as well as a bridge that lets him speak to the dead.

there are parts of the a Story where the emotional ride of Isaiah make me angry but I forget how a teenager who hasn't been taught to control his emotions might act or someone whose pain from life has scared him so badly that assention to adulthood is strained.
topped with the lack of understanding and knowledge withheld from simple humans create a painful scenario for the reader.
The tail is engaging and as the story develops grips the reader/listener to keep going til the end.
