Publisher's Summary

When the world's most notorious cartel bosses get arrested, they call Benn Bluestone. A drug lawyer sharp enough to exploit loopholes in the system, Bluestone loves the money, the women, the action that come with his career...but working between the lines of justice and crime has taken its toll, and he desperately wants out. He's convinced himself that only an insanely rich client can guarantee him a lavish retirement.

When the New Year begins with three promising cases, Bluestone thinks he's hit pay dirt. But then the cases link dangerously together - and to his own past. Does the mysterious drug kingpin Sombra hold the key to Bluestone's ambitions? Or does the key open a door that could bring the entire federal justice system to a screeching halt and net Bluestone a life in jail without parole?

Messy plot and light content

The idea of reading about drug cartels from a US lawyer perspective was appealing to me. However the plot is confusing (flitting from location to location a lot of the time without any reason), the dialogues shallow and no character is likeable. George Newbern does a great job with his performance to keep the interest alive, but after a while it gets like pushing water up to the mountains...

okay story line

Kept me engaged, lead character was arrogant, obnoxious big city lawyer who is not as smart or brilliant as he thinks. I predicted the big twist about half way through but it was interesting.

Not great

The performance was really good. The story was a bit convoluted and hard to follow.

Meh

If you like narcissistic attorneys who believe that they live the life of a rockstar on the fringe of drug cartels you'll probably like this. I experimented with the speed at which the book reads just to get through it faster. didn't really care for the writing style and it felt like every sentence should end with 'see'. As in, I'm a wise guy see so therefore I am smarter and more crafty than other people see.

what a mess

I'm about halfway through and I can't finish this book. The plot is a mess , I don't care about any of the characters, and I am continually offended by the attitude displayed towards women. This book is a throwback to times and attitudes I thought we had moved beyond. at least the narration is good!

Interesting Thriller

I don’t often read legal thrillers. This one, concerning a corrupt lawyer who specializes in representing narcos is a pleasant surprise. The novel has a lot of descriptive info about different countries that rings true. The plot was quite tight. The only reason that I gave 3 stars was the lack of depth in the characters and the authors over reliance on stereotypes.

I'll try reading the book on my own

I have been listening to the narrator of the book but for whatever reason I was not able to grasp what the author's purpose is. So I stopped. I'll give it a second chance and try reading the text on my own. I'll update the ratings if it gets better...
