Publisher's Summary

When Attorney Sabre Brown's phone rings at 2 a.m. she's shocked to hear from her brother, Ron, who has been in Witness Protection for the past seven years. Someone has discovered his whereabouts and is trying to kill him - and possibly Sabre as well.

Sabre and her private investigator, JP, leave sunny San Diego to find her brother who has gone underground. Based on a single clue, they begin their search in the cold, wintry Pacific Northwest. They soon discover that the six felons whom Ron testified against have been released from prison. One by one, they are being murdered.

Sabre and JP race to find Ron and stop the next bullet. As the clues unfold, they're unsure if someone is trying to kill Ron or protect him. Or is Ron the killer? Could Sabre's beloved brother have changed during his long absence and is he now seeking vengeance? Sabre risks her relationships, her career, and her life to seek the undeniable truth. Is Sabre's love for her brother overriding her sound judgment and if so, is there a final bullet with Sabre's name on it?

Surprisingly excellent mystery/suspense novel!

I had never heard of this series but thanks to Whispersymc for Voice and its low prices I decided to try it. I will now listen to all of this excellent series. Teresa Burrell in new to me. She is a superb writer.

The advocate is a lawyer and abused children's advocate. He brother, who is in the federal witness permission program, finds his life at constant risk.

Narration is excellent.

Good story

Good story. Witness protection doesn’t always work, and when it doesn’t, people die. This is my second trip with Teresa Burrell, and I’m not sorry I took the time. While it wasn’t as tense as the books I usually read, there was enough there to hold my interest well. Again, I’ll read more of her as I bump into them. 4 stars.

Great thriller on a great series

This latest book in Teresa Burrell's Advocate's series is narrated by John Bell. Her heroin Attorney  Sabre Brown receives a call from her brother who has been in Witness Protection for the last 7 years. He believes someone knows where he is and that they are trying to kill him. Apparently he has been moved around the country from place to place trying to stay safe and hidden. After the latest incident he is on the run. He doesn't trust those protecting him any longer. So Sabre has to juggle her defence of children in juvenile court as well as find and protect her brother. Since no one can know where he is, including Sabre, she must use her Nancy Drew like Skills and her trusty Private Investigator J.P. to find where her brother Ron is hiding. Unfortunatly She is not the only person looking for Ron. Apparently every where he has been moved people connected to his case have been found murdered. Some in law enforcement believe Ron is the killer, Sabre must save her brother and prove his innocence without getting killed herself. This is by far the most thrilleresque book in the series. All the books have been great mysteries with danger and intrigue but this one takes Sabre and crew to a new level. I enjoyed listening to this book and narrator John Bell did a good job telling the stories. This is the first time a Male narrator has been used in this series, and maybe that did raise the level of intrigue in the listening, but I have to say I prefer hearing a female voice narrating this series. Overall the author was kept me interested in the characters and I am ready for the next book where there might be a little romance in store for Sabre Brown. I will have to wait and see.

This book was given to me as a gift for an honest review all six of Teresa Burrell's Advocate's series are available at Audible.com.

Gritty advocate work

This book gets personal for Sabre and her brother as they must avoid both the FBI and gang members.

Sabre and her detective must first find her brother, then protect him and her as well.

This book if exciting from start to finish and you don't find out who is actually guilty until the end of the book. The narration is outstanding.

This book was provided free of charge with the expectation of an honest review.

Liked it but missed the children

The Advocate’s Felony uses a different setting than the earlier books in the series. Instead of the California courtroom and Sabre’s usual world of legal investigation, this book is set in Montana in winter. It brought back her brother, Ron, who had been gone for 7 years in the Witness Protection Program, and was a very personal case. It is full of JPisms and continues Sabre and JP’s relationship. As much as I like Ron, I did miss the cases involving the children. John Bell brought the story to life although his narration seemed a little flat on occasion. Altogether, this was an enjoyable listening experience.

A good book but missed the stories about children.

Missed the cases involving the children. Especially liked the Tubor character. So many unanswered questions related to him. Hope we run into him again.

Desperately Seeking Good Editor

While author Teresa Burrell is obviously talented, I believe her books are desperately need a good editor. Main character Sabre Brown was extremely engrossing as usual, but the plot was unrealistic and implausible for so many reasons.

Point # 1: Don't have a man old enough to be her father (18 years her senior) constantly calling Sabre "kid", then attempt to turn their friendship into a romance - it sounded creepy. As much as I liked PJ's character, his feelings toward Sabre felt too paternal.

Point # 2: If someone in Witness Protection is successfully being traced from state to state, then there's obviously a leak in the agency. Why would it take days of running around in snowy Montana before Sabre, PJ or Ron to figure out something so simple?

Although parts of The Advocate's Felony were extremely entertaining and humorous, my mind started to wander when Sabre & company spent the majority of their time driving around in blizzards looking for a place to hide.

It's a felony not to listen to this book!!

Wow, I have listened to book one up to book six in this series and even through I enjoy the fun with the children and the courtroom time this one is by far my favourite (which didn't really have much of either.) The story started with a bang and didn't let up until the end and took you on a roller coaster ride across the country. Like all the other books in this series you were never sure who you should trust, with all the twist and turns. Sabre was out of her element , trying to save her brother but it was fun learning with her.
This was the first time the author has used a male narrator to read the book and even through it seemed strange hearing Sabre being spoken by a man to start with, it soon felt right as he was very good.
