Rich's son Ryan finally graduates from law school and is anxious to start law practice. His girlfriend, a classmate, also graduates but doesn't want to practice law but has her sights on becoming a literary agent. When Ryan hears this he remembers his father has written a true crime book about the murder of Martha Collins, his mother's aunt.
When he tells Amanda about the manuscript she is ecstatic about the possibility that it could be her first placement. Unfortunately, she soon discovers that Rich and his wife, Erica, don't want the book published but won't say why. But Amanda isn't about to take no for and answer and wears them down until they finally agree.
Rich's other son, Matt, is still reeling from the murder of his wife and a prison sentence he was forced to serve for a crime he didn't commit. To get him out of the doldrums Rich helps him get his law license back and sets him on a crusade against the mortgage servicing industy. The crusade gets off to a fast start when a client comes in with a great case against Reliable Mortgage Lending and Rich is able to line up a mole in the company.
Unfortunately, as soon as Rich's book is published he wishes he would have kept it in mothballs as the District Attorney reopens the investigation into Aunt Martha's murder and Matt's crusade against Reliable Mortgage Servicing is jolted when his client is accused of the murder of Reliable's CEO.

Legal Thriller Missed The Mark
I initially was drawn to the synopsis on the entry. I thought this was a different type of legal murder mystery and it looks really good. Well now I'm not so sure.
Although the story line gripped me, I felt there where just one too many characters to keep track of. I don't understand why there were so many. Chapters 17 and 18 were muddled so I had to go over them several times . I don't know if the author got confused and maybe was going to use some of the material and scratch some later on then forgot to or what happened here, but it looks like I was not the only one clearly confused about this.
Obviously the author did some massive legal research so, kudos for that. However I felt like there might have been just a tad too much added detail. Even though this is the third book in the series it is not necessary to listen the previous books as the prelude offers a detailed summary to get you up to date. (less)
