From the daughter of James Lee Burke and former Portland prosecutor comes the second enthralling Samantha Kincaid mystery.Deputy District Attorney Samantha Kincaid is back at work after an attempt on her life and a promotion into the Major Crimes Unit. When the husband of a Portland city judge reports his wife missing, Samantha is assigned the case. She assumes her only job is to make the district attorney look good until the judge turns up. When the police discover evidence of foul play, Samantha finds herself unearthing secrets that were meant to stay hidden. Missing Justice confirms Alafair Burke's place among the genre's most talented and exciting newcomers.
A former Portland, Oregon District Attorney and the daughter of crime novelist James Lee Burke, Alafair Burke's second novel established her as an exciting voice on the thriller scene. Missing Justice is the second Samantha Kincaid mystery, and given Burke’s background, it’s not surprising that it seems true to life. This time Kincaid has just returned to work after an attempt on her life, only to become embroiled in another major drama when a local judge goes missing. Kincaid's investigation turns up evidence of adultery, foul play, corruption, and other dark secrets that someone in Portland was definitely determined to keep buried. Performer Betty Bobbitt narrates the suspenseful, action-packed story in suitably cool tones.
"The author's background as a former deputy district attorney in Portland lends gritty ambience to this modern parable of greed and ambition." (Booklist)
"Witty and concise dialogue." (Publishers Weekly)

Book never grabed my attention.
It was very slow starting. I listened to the first two chapters and I found my mind wondering. reader is a slow talker in my opinion. I have listened to books read by her in the past. I just speed them up a bit but didn;t help this time.
More interesting subjects at the beginning, to help grab the listeners attention.
Read a little faster?
The book would probably turn into a good listen, but I was just not interested.
I would like a credit back for this book. There are other books that I would rather listen to that don't require waiting for some thing to happen. I listen to be entertained and to enjoy. I was just not enjoying this product. I ended up putting on a book I had already listened to in order to complete my drive home.
