Publisher's Summary

A year after the devastating murder of his wife, attorney David Sloane has returned to Seattle after three months in Mexico. At a black-tie dinner where he’s been persuaded to give the keynote address, Sloane reconnects with Barclay Reid, opposing counsel in his most prominent case. Barclay is suffering from her own personal tragedy - the death of her teenage daughter from a drug overdose. In the aftermath, Barclay has begun an intense crusade against the Russian drug traffickers she holds responsible for her daughter’s death, pursuing them with a righteousness that matches Sloane’s own zeal for justice. Despite their adversarial past, Sloane is drawn to Barclay and for the first time since his wife died, he finds himself beginning to have romantic feelings again. But when Barclay’s crusade stalls and a Russian drug dealer turns up dead, she stands accused of murder, and Sloane is her chosen defender. Amid the swirling media frenzy, in his first criminal case, Sloane finds himself once again in harm’s way, while mounting evidence suggests that Barclay is a woman with many secrets - and may not be quite as innocent as she seems.
With his signature fast-paced, page-turning action and exhilarating plot twists, Robert Dugoni once again proves why he’s so often been named the heir to Grisham’s literary throne.

Great Addition To The Series

A drug dealer is set free by a judge because he finds the evidence inadmissible. Which in turn takes on a whole new meaning. He ends up dead after his release. A woman is charged with his murder and the dark secrets start to surface. Reid, the accused, hires Sloane to defend her of the charges. She charms her way into his life and they start seeing more of each other, regularly. But things are not all as they seem. Things start to fall into place as the investigation and the trial begins. Certain things come to light. Things Reid has said and the way she seems unphased by the events that aren't in her favor, Sloane starts to think something is wrong. If you like a good deception story line and deceit along with it, this is the book for you. If you have listened to any of this author's books you will not be disappointed..

- 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!"

Disappointed

Wow I can't believe this book has merited such high ratings. I had to stop listening to "Murder One" about an hour into it because I found the narration so annoying. Then I checked it out from the library and found it so suspenseful on the written page that I didn't want to put it down so I listened to it parts of it on my commute to work. My criticism of the audiobook is the narrator sounds ridiculous when he does female voices – like a man pretending to be a woman in a comedy sketch. Worse than that is all the black characters sound fresh from the plantation – even a highly educated man raised in a wealthy family in northern California.
The story however definitely held my interest so I would recommend reading rather than listening to this thriller.
