I am so used to reading books from the victim or perpetrators point of view so The Indictments was a real treat being from a prosecutors point of view.
This book kept me wanting to come back for more so I will definitely be reading more from this author.
The narration was also phenomenal. Bob did a fantastic job and I can't wait to hear more of his work as well.
Bravo to author and narrator!

This is the second book in this series and I have not read the first Savannah Law. I really don't think that would have made this audio book any better for me. I thought most of the story was good but at time I wondered where the author was going and found my self lost. Bob Johnson's narration is just okay. I did find the more I listened the more I could get into his style. He gives distinctive voices to the different characters and that part I found to be quite good. It was when he was just giving back ground that I had a problem.
I was gifted this book with the understanding I would leave an honest review

Any additional comments?
This excellent story basically tells the lawyer's side of the blocks and pitfalls along the way of trying to successfully prosecute a known serial robber, starting with the disastrous retrial in September, 2007, until a return to court in April, 2008. Throughout, it follows the life of a rising young lawyer, Scott, his work colleagues and friends and various investigations conducted during that times. It really highlights the frustration of the job where guilt has to be proved beyond any shadow of doubt, the tricks that can be played to ensure evidence is inadmissible and the sometimes frailties of victims and witnesses.
Well written, fascinating and suspenseful, this quite lengthy book is well narrated by Bob Johnson. As with another reviewer, initially I found his carefully paced delivery slightly disconcerting with an inflection to his sentences, but very quickly grew to appreciate the precise use of his very lovely voice. The conversation of different protagonists is mostly minimally differentiated: his is more of a reading than a performance. But this in no way distracts from the overall presentation nor of the understanding of who is speaking at any given time. It fitted the subject matter well.
This was an enjoyable, sometimes funny, often moving book, and wide ranging in topics covered. And the central story of how justice does not always equate to decisions under the law is totally absorbing. I was very fortunate in being g gifted a copy of The Indictments by the rights holder, via Audiobook Boom. Thank you. And I can happily recommend it to anyone who enjoys their thrills in a quieter version than simple violence and battles.
