I'm so glad that I met Mike Daley and Rosie Fernandez in 'Special Circumstances' that I'm listening right now to the 2nd in this series, 'Incriminating Evidence'. Yep this is a legal thriller that's got plot and characters who pulled me into its whodunit delights.
I like it when authors obviously plan a plot, then execute it with usefully thought-out characters. Of course the denizens of these stories have purposes other than probing life's deepest secrets and feelings.. No, when this sort of book is at its best - it will shamelessly entertain.
Sheldon Siegel does that through the ensemble that Tim Campbell's created. I'm not sure which of them is luckiest to have found themselves in this partnership. Maybe the sum's greater than the whole of its parts? Regardless. Start this series with this novel. Do that, and I'm betting that, like me, you'll soon listen to 'Incriminating Evidence'."

This is the first book I've listened to by Sheldon Siegel. I thought it was a really good legal/courtroom mystery. I won't go over the storyline because I think Audible gives enough in their description.
The only thing I think I could add is to say that what ever you think actually happened or who ever you think may have committed the crime, you're probably wrong! I never saw this ending coming, no way could I have guessed what was coming or how Mike Daley would have handled the reality of this case.
Tim Campbell does a great job narrating. His voice fits this character very well.

I came across this author and gave him a try. So glad I did a well written and narrated book. Compare well with mark Giminez or Grisham.

I really, really liked the Mike Daley lead character. A brilliant composite of former priest and partner in a leading law firm who goes it on his own in the world of criminal law He's no hero at all in the physical sense and worries about his parked car and his own well-being BUT he's very refreshing and believable. The narrator does a stunningly good job of his character and is really good throughout. The whole thing though was let down by some not inconsiderable weaknesses in the plot and I think the courtroom dialogue became a bit repetitious and implausible. Still I liked it so much overall that I'll take a chance on the next one!
