Publisher's Summary

You can pick your friends, they say, but you can't pick your family. And lately, Mike Daley's family has been keeping him very busy. An ex-priest, ex-public defender, and ex-corporate lawyer, Daley and his former wife, Rosie Fernandez, now run their own San Francisco criminal defense firm. Most of their cases are fairly small-time, which is why it would be surprising that the person accused of murdering movie director Richard (Big Dick) MacArthur is calling them - except that the accused is Rosie's own niece, Angelina. That case is bad enough, but the family problems don't end there: Rosie's brother, Tony, may be on the wrong end of a strong-arm graft proposal; the son of one of the firm's lawyers has just been busted on a drug charge; Mike is having a clandestine affair with a woman judge... and Rosie herself has a dark secret that may make all of it seem irrelevant.
An intricate plot, immensely likeable characters, powerful suspense, and more than a touch of humor-these have already become Siegel's hallmarks. Criminal Intent will keep you turning pages until its final, surprising end.

Criminal Intent IS NOT The Great American Novel. It is a legal/murder mystery. Mike Daley & Rosie Fernandez have had fine chemistry since Special Circumstances -the first novel in Sheldon Siegel's series. In fact, you'd do well starting with that book and enjoying their growth through Criminal Intent.

Here they wrestle with movie moguls, real estate developers, community organizers, and shabby politicians in San Fransisco. Apparently neither Bill Godfrey nor any of the production staff have ever visited that city or they'd pronounce place names accurately. The mispronouncing is repetitive and ripped my attention away from the narrative. Still, even with this irritant, it's the sort of book that makes cleaning the dishes, or mowing the lawn totally bearable.

Lots of intrigue and suspense!

Criminal Intent is Book 3 in the seven book Mike Daley/Rosie Fernandez legal thriller series. The first 5 books are available in audiobook format and all seven are available in Kindle ebook format. Audible does not list this series as a series. The novels were released between 2000 and 2010 inclusive. The novels in order written are Special Circumstances, Incriminating Evidence, Criminal Intent, Final Verdict, The Confession, Judgement Day, and Perfect Alibi. Daley and Fernandez are law partners who were once married but now divorced. Daley is also an ex-priest. The pair have a 10 year old daughter.

Criminal Intent is an excellent legal thriller, but in my view it is the weakest novel in the superb seven book series. The intrigue is over the top.

I recommend the entire Daley/Fernandez series.

Poor narration

Clicks and clunks. Also inconsistant volume. I think recording was done in his front room very amateur.

nice story but.....

Mr. Godfrey's voice drove me insane-I think I could have done a better job with the variations.
