Publisher's Summary

Inspired by real crimes.

From the author of the number-one best-seller, The Good Lawyer.

A serial killer is littering the South Shore beach of Long Island - the bones of his victims stuffed into burlap bags. Nick Mannino, The Good Lawyer, is living off the ill-gotten gains of his deceased mobster uncle, when, without warning, a brutal serial killer turns on him, and worse, his family.

As much a thriller as it is a mystery, with an ending as riveting as that in Silence of the Lambs, The Criminal Lawyer is also a love story, a novel of family secrets, and crimes beyond forgiveness.

    "Excellent suspense thriller!"

    I'm happy I did not stop with the first novel of this series. The Criminal Lawyer is lot a legal thriller at all although the protagonist did practice criminal law in the past. The first book in this two novel series was set in 1979 while The Criminal Lawyer is set in 2010. This novel is an exciting and action packed suspense thriller wrapped around a story of love and family. It is a fun and satisfying listen. Narration is superb.

    "Awesome"

    Loved the characters and the story. At times I asked myself is this really plausible? Then I found myself weeping as I was listening while on the the treadmill.

    "Simply dreadful listen"

    I have listened to over 200 audible novels, this was the worst. I can not believe the 4 star ratings. simplistic story line, very weak performance, unbelievably drawn out ending

    "Had potential"

    I gave this book 3s across the board because 1/3 of the time it was crummy,, 1/3 of the time it was average, and 1/3 of the time it was excellent. In any case it is way too long and too much blah blah blah totally unnecessary. It reminded me of when I was in high school and had to turn in a theme so I filled the paper with nonsense trying to reach the word limit assigned by the teacher. The narrator was it times quite good and sometimes just boring. I really hate books like this that have a pretty decent plot that screwed up by the author just trying to fill pages. Every five minutes there is some great detailed background that adds nothing at all to the book. Anyway, I read it so I'm not going to return it but I think some of the high ratings of it over the top.

    "MORE PLEASE"

    I really enjoyed getting to know Mr. Benigno's characters in these lawyer books. I would love to continue to read more crimes they can solve., I just loved this book and hated to have it end. Will there be any more lawyer follow ups?

    "Refreshing"

    The book was amazing. Kept me on the edge of my seat. The most refreshing thing was the ending. Lots of book tie up some of the loose end in the last chapter. This book went into detail about anyone of importance! It was fun finding out what happened to everyone that you read about. I wish more authors did that!!
