Publisher's Summary

Deadly Defense: A Grace Gaynor Christian Mystery is a powerful psychological suspense and legal thriller by internationally best-selling crime writer R. Barri Flowers.

Three years ago, Miami defense attorney Grace Gaynor was the victim of a violent sexual assault in which she killed her attacker. She has been undergoing therapy to deal with the trauma.

When her therapist Doctor Austin Winchester, whom she had begun to develop feelings for, is arrested and charged with the violent murder of her friend Kara Pedrosa, Grace reluctantly takes on his case for her law firm of Kendall, Francois, and Larosa.

She goes up against brilliant Miami-Dade prosecutor Perry MacAlister, a former colleague whom she still considers a friend. He's as tough as they come and believes he has a slam dunk case against the successful psychiatrist, Dr. Winchester.

In order to prove otherwise, Grace must call upon all of her considerable skills, faith, and gut instincts to win an acquittal in the face of uncertainties and mixed loyalties.

The intriguing and complex storyline, three-dimensional characters, and shocking conclusion will keep listeners engrossed from beginning to end.

Enjoyed

I enjoyed this book. The author did a good job of keeping the mystery alive. I was surprised, not so much of who 'done it', but the why. The narrator did a fine job with the performance of the story.

Great Mystery, but sometimes hard to follow...

I really liked this Mystery, a great story with a nice twist towards the end. The religious aspect was sometimes emphasized a bit too much for my personal taste. However, that can be expected in a Christian mystery.

I sometimes found it difficult to know who is speaking at a certain point in the story - particularly during conversations bewegen male characters. The narrator has two ways of speaking - one for male and one for female characters. Especially the male characters sounded almost identical to me, so it was like ,ah Ok, that is somebody else speaking now'.

I also liked the, bonus' of an additional story about a murder case re-enacted by a theatre-group. Nice extra.

All in all, an entertaining audiobook I can recommend.

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

A great thriller

I eeceived this book from the author of my own free will for an honest review.

And it surprised me a lot, I mean it was a full length novel and 2 shorts and I enjoyed all 3 of them so much.

I admire how he was able of fusion christianity in all of these people lifes, usually lawyers are known from being the devil's advocates and all but Grace was great as she was so faithfull to herself and to a divine power. One of the things I enjoyed more were the twists that kept you guessing what was really going on.

The narrator was pretty good too, she had a good pace when she talked and the message came across pretty well and she conveys feelings well when she reads.

The other two stories were surprisingly good for being so short too I really liked that, hopefully we will see more of this author in the future.
