Devils Advocate Meets a Nice Boy from Brooklyn

I don't think I would have selected this book based on the description because I am not usually attracted to legal thrillers. What had me at "hello" was my favorite narrator, Scott Brick. He could read me the dictionary and I would be captivated. Beyond that, the book sounded dicey so I gave it a try. The story grabbed me right from the beginning and I was hooked all the way to to the end.

This was my first time listening to a Larry Fine book and it won't be my last. Too often, I listen to authors that play it safe and this one did the opposite which was so refreshing! There is a little bit of the occult and a smidge of fantasy mixed into a great thril ride! The book was less of a legal thriller and more of a suspense horror with intense and graphic sexual violence which adds depth to the plot and delivers characters you will route for and others you will love to hate. Here is how I break it out:

Suspense/Psychological: 70%
Horror: 20%
Romance: 5%
Legal thriller: 5%

The story feels slightly like the movie, "the devil''s advocate" although that's just at the surface level. The story itself is unique and read by the best narrator in the business, Scott Brick. Bottomline, you can't go wrong choosing this story.

NC-17 and pretty good

Let's get the Performance rated since that is easiest - Brick is very good, he makes good books very good, bad books tolerable. In fact, without him reading I probably would not have chosen it.
There are some disturbing events that occur between both consenting adults and not, some with children so be warned but it was not over-the-top graphic(with the kids) and was needed to demonstrate the level of evil of the antagonists.
The main character, Mark, was quite a dichotomy. He seemed dense, plain and naive but then he was brave, skilled and intelligent at other times making it difficult to get a read on him as a likable character.
There were some twists and it took a little while for the narrative to gain momentum. There were a couple times I almost turned it off within the first 2 hours but it definitely built momentum as it progressed so if you like suspenseful stories with a strong evil cult influence, and can tolerate the NC-17 then stick with it. The Legal aspect takes a backseat in the story about half of the time.
There is a bit of 'Devils Advocate' in this story, the Pacino-Reeves movie but just a little. Overall, I enjoyed the story, just would have liked more of a definitive protagonist so I could 'get' him. Lastly, cover art could have been better so just as with the choice of Performer, the cover art plays a role in peoples choices.

Unexpected Twists

Larry Fine is an author whom is new to me. Scott Brick has been a favorite narrator of mine since I've listened to him perform other books. I really thought this book was well written, but some of the subject matter was taboo to me and that was why I did not give it the full 5 star rating for the story. I love a mystery with unexpected twists, but this one stunned me. I do not like giving away spoilers in reviews, but some people might not like part of the subject. This story is totally original and not like anything I have ever read or listened to before. I was voluntarily provided with this review copy audiobook at no charge by the author, narrator, and/or publisher.

Scott Brick makes every story better.

This reminds me of a Brett Battle's book. A lawyer who is running for his life and Brick's narration let's you feel the danger,, disgust, and triumphs. I look for books narrated by Brick because no one can drag you into the story like he does. Larry Fine did great work unfolding the plot.

Lawyers are supposed to protect us, Right?

Marc Wilson is a jobless young attorney, once idealistic but now willing to bend a few rules to help his career. What seemed like a such a small infraction as a way to get Marc into the Lawyer's Ethics Committee, opened his path into the shadowy side of the of the committee.
He begins to realize the Committee is more than what it seems. As an ancient secret society made up of powerful judges and lawyers focused on the powers of Satanism the committee begin to challenge everything Marc thought he knew and draw into a web that he might not escape from.
A good story and well worth the listen and always Scott Brick makes it all come to thrilling life.

"As if by magic..."

Any additional comments?

With such a wonderful title and Scott Brick narrating, despite the horrible cover I was anticipating a really excellent book. And the early chapters did not disappoint. The story promised to be intriguing, exciting and with unexpected happenings. Sadly, though, it slowly morphed into the ridiculous. The violence, sex, murder and mayhem didn't phase me, it was the silliness of the scenes invoked in my head that had me laughing rather than being shocked at the anticipated horror. A case, I fear, of too much shown where a little more mystery would have achieved what excess could not. Think of the Masons! And the idea of our wimpy main protagonist winning out against all the odds and of the father-daughter relationship as given: I'm sorry, it was just plain daft. Perhaps it's because I'm British ...<br/><br/>Despite the (mostly) predictability of it all, I istened to the very last word. Why? Scott Brick, of course. He could make reading a government document stunning and realistic. His deliciously warm voice echoed the emotions of the text without breaking into guffaws of laughter, all beautifully modulated, and with individually distinctive character dialogue. And, of course, he became Mark Wilson, the foolish but nice lawyer hoping to succeed, who is recounting his story. By his narration, Brick turned the, frankly, risible into high drama.<br/><br/>Did I enjoy the book? Well, yes, it was fun, like a comic book, with dastardly villains and nowhere to hide. But it could have been so much better, a real chiller, had the author tried a little less hard to shock and been slightly more original with some of the nasties that were revealed. My thanks to the rights holder for gifting me my copy of Murdering Lawyers, via Audiobook Boom. I notice that the ending leaves just enough ambiguity to suggest a sequel. Now that could be interesting ...
