Publisher's Summary

Two attorneys with everything to lose fight for justice in The Prosecutor, by USA Today best-selling author Adrienne Giordano.

Chicago assistant state's attorney Zac Hennings just got handed a political hot potato: keeping the convicted murderer in a high-profile case behind bars. He's up against his most formidable - and alluring - adversary. First-year law student Emma Sinclair is passionately fighting to free her brother. But she needs the take-no-prisoners prosecutor's help. Caught between attraction and letting a killer go free, Zac walks a tightrope. Until evidence surfaces that the real culprit's still out there. With his career and Emma's life on the line, Zac races to right a terrible wrong. Refusing to back down, he'll bring a cunning lawbreaker to justice - or die trying.

Best 2014 romantic suspense I've read

The male narrator's female characters left much to be desired (they sounded like aging drag queens!) but his pacing, inflection, etc, were good.

The 5 stars, then, is for this surprisingly engrossing tale of a woman's quest to free her wrongfully-accused brother, now facing 25 years in jail for murder. Sounds straightforward and the story, being a category title, isn't complicated. BUT, Giordano's writing is so good, this felt like a full-length latest Sandra Brown. I could have done without the slight TSTL scene where Emma goes into the dark alley, telling herself only stupid women did that but other than this, the story unfolded at a good pace, allowing all the characters to be nicely fleshed-out. Great hero, likeable heroine, excellent tension as Emma and Zac close in on who the killer really was.

There's a good balance of romance/suspense, a proportion that falls within my pleasure zone - I do not like my Romantic Suspense to have more romance as it detracts from the suspense. Giordano hit the right ratio for me in this well-written thriller.
