Publisher's Summary

The woman gives her name as Betty. No last name. No phone number. Just a meeting place - a deserted, wooded park on the outskirts of Lake Tahoe. The one condition - come alone. San Francisco attorney Kali O'Brien understands client confidentiality, but something about Betty's urgent request has her a little spooked.
The moment Betty meets with Kali, she's shot and killed by a sniper, and Kali barely escapes with her life. She's left with more questions than answers. Why did the woman go to such lengths to ensure secrecy? And then there's the last thing Betty said - a cryptic phrase that leads Kali to another unsolved case - the mysterious disappearance of a woman eight years earlier.
As Kali get closer to discovering the truth, a killer is right behind her, anticipating her every move, waiting for her to play into his very lethal hands...

Just OK For Me

First Sentence: The blue Toyota turned off Highway 89 along the western shore of Lake Tahoe and into Ponderosa Pines Park.

Attorney Kali O'Brien is asked to meet a new client, Betty, in a park by Lake Tahoe. Although the request is unusual, Kali agrees and ends up with a dead client and a gunshot wound in her shoulder. Investigating Betty's death leads Kali to another case of a woman thought to be murdered eight years previous, but still alive and still with someone trying to rectify that.

This was not my favorite mystery story. However, Ms Jacobs does do a credible job of creating and building suspense, maintaining several story threads and tying them all neatly up at the end. Her characters are well done, well developed and interesting.

However, the story felt long and overly involved, but it was the overwhelming coincidence that beggared belief. Also some of the reasons behind the plot sounded far fetched which caused my rating to drop. I will try another Kali O'Brien book as I think this book had promise.

I received a copy of this book in return for an honest and unbiased review.

Cindy Pillar was good with the delivery of the story

- Lia "I love all genres of books. However, when I listen to audio books as I clean, garden, drive they are better with a lot of heat!"

Legal mystery that keeps you guessing

If you could sum up Intent to Harm in three words, what would they be?

Couldn't stop listening

Who was your favorite character and why?

Irene/Faith (same character) she is such a fighter throughout the entire book. You find out about her past, what she's been through and what she has to do on a daily basis to keep her secret from everyone around her. Rather than just give up, she keeps on fighting to stay alive

What about Cindy Piller’s performance did you like?

She speaks very clearly and does a great job of alternating voices for the different characters

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Close to the end you find out who really is behind the kidnapping and attack of Faith and it's a huge plot twist that I didn't see coming so that point kind of solidified how intrigued I was by this story

Any additional comments?

I really enjoy the Kali O'Brien series - this was my second audiobook from it and they are great legal thrillers for anyone who enjoys that genre and also has points of humor to lighten it up.
