Original, Engaging - Time and Money Well Spent
I am residing smack in the middle of the second half of my expected and allotted lifetime, and this book fit me well . . . I "got it" and thoroughly enjoyed it. Some have been critical of the first few hours of this work . . . too slow or too flat. Not so for me. The exacting character introductions and development were captivating. I love a good story from start to finish and this was exactly that.
This was my first Martin Clark novel. He has an exceptional gift for painting with words. Near the end Clark was describing his main character and wrote "he was now forged and tempered, all the clay and filler and alloy burned away. Someone with tales to recite, advice to give . . . a place to fit him." The book was full of these wonderful verbal pictures!
Lastly, most novels have a surprise ending . . . it is expected. Mr Clark closes with 4 or 5 surprises in his ending, each brilliantly crafted. No major hanging threads in this tapestry of life left to the reader (listener) to finish. Clark tied them all up. It was great for a change. I am so glad I took a chance on Mr. Clark's The Legal Limit. Well done!!

I wish there were more books by this author
Martin Clark is an excellent writer who really develops his characters. This was a book that I designed my day around, so that I could listen while doing tasks. The plot seemed simple at first, but develops into quite a convoluted, complex plot.
The reader was very good, and since Audible doesn't have any other books by this author, I will search for books read by Ed Sala. He has such a good pace to his narration and his voice is soothing and fades into the background as the story unfolds.
All in all, a very enjoyable read!
