A devastating terrorist attack in the heart of Washington, DC, and the arrest of the terrorist leads to a trial that threatens to expose the dark underbelly of America's national security. The Russian president is gravely injured and fixated on revenge, while a gay Russian dissident is arrested and put on trial in Judge Tom Brewer's courtroom. With the world's attention fixed on Tom and this case, secrets from his past explode during the course of the trial, which place him at the very center of the case and make him the only man who can try to stop the world's slide into war.

Private investigator Johnny Delarosa has seen it all. First as a cop, and now as a private eye. Cheating spouses, embezzlements, and insurance scams are routine. But he meets his match when the alluring, auburn-haired Claire Dixon walks into his bar/office and drops a $20,000 retainer in his lap. She wants the hard-drinking Johnny to find $2 million that was stolen from her mobster family 30 years earlier. But $2 million can be motivating.

In Domengrad, there are rules all must live by: Fear the Gods. Worship the Magicians. Forsake the Iconoclasts. To Annabelle Klein, the rules laid down by the Magicians are the mere ramblings of stuffy old men. As far as she's concerned, the historic Iconoclasts, heretics who nearly destroyed the Magicians so long ago, are nothing but myth. She has much more important matters to worry about. Heiress to a manor mortgaged down to its candlesticks and betrothed to her loathsome cousin, 16-year-old Annabelle doubts the gods could forsake her more.

A young law professor's obsession with a female student and a politically charged, media-frenzy criminal trial that pits the nation's most successful criminal trial lawyer against Savannah prosecutors, provide the backdrop for Savannah Law. The intense drama - both inside and outside the courtroom - builds to an unexpected climax in an unforgettable final chapter.

Good overall book. Felt very slow in the beginning. By the time the real plot twists came it felt rushed as compared to the 30 chapters of character building.

Good performance by Bob Johnson especially with wide range of Southern accents .

Really struggled with this one. I was immediately lost with all the time, location and character changes. I get that this is book one of a series and it needs to establish things but it was Game of Thrones level in the amount of stuff for the listen to remember.

The narration was good but I hated the vocal effects put on during character's inner thoughts. I don't generally like sound effects in audio books and this was no different. The effect was really jarring.

Here's hoping the rest of the series is easier to follow.
