    What worked best for me was the courtroom dialogue and drama Too often a book will be listed as a Legal Thriller , but will have little or no courtroom presence This book however, was a text book example for what I define as a Legal Thriller, and these scenes were the best part of the book I love the legal wrangling s, seeing the attorney s duke it out, all while peeling away the layers of the mystery The author allowed the reader a sneak peek into the life of a defender and we are able to What worked best for me was the courtroom dialogue and drama Too often a book will be listed as a Legal Thriller , but will have little or no courtroom presence This book however, was a text book example for ...

    I did NOT know this was a book in a series, let alone number 16 when I read it That being said, I don t think you need to read all 15 before reading this one The fall was slightly disappointing I love a good thriller, and maybe I watch too many crime shows, but I found many of the scenes and most of the dialog boring Since most of the story takes place in a court room, it became tedious to read, as the defense attorney The Beck asked the same question seven ways to Sunday I think I was mo I did NOT know this was a book in a series, let alone number 16 when I read it That being said, I don t think you need to read all 15 before reading ...
