Publisher's Summary

With money and hope in short supply, newly minted attorney Brigham Theodore decides it’s time to lower his standards. He joins a seedy fly-by-night firm in Salt Lake City out of desperation. After he loses his first case - a speeding ticket - he’s convinced his career is over. But to his shock, his boss hands him a slightly more complex case: capital murder.
Brigham’s new client is Amanda Pierce, a lost, exhausted woman who gunned down the man who tortured and killed her six-year-old daughter. A jury may prove sympathetic to her unbearable pain, but the law is no fan of vigilante justice - and neither is Vince Dale, the slick and powerful prosecutor who’s never lost a murder case. There’s no question that Amanda pulled the trigger - she did it in front of five witnesses. If she pleads guilty, she will avoid a death sentence, but saving her life this way comes with an admission that what she did was wrong. However, if she refuses the “guilty” label, Brigham will have no choice but to fight for his career - and Amanda’s life.

Good Court Room Drama!

I really enjoyed this legal thriller/drama... You start getting the meat and potatoes of the story from the first chapter. It is not stuffed with a lot of fluff or filler.

However, I had to suspend my disbelief a good deal, but I didn't mind because the story was very interesting and I wanted to know what happened next. I recognized that some of the court room antics would not be permitted in the real world, but like in most real court rooms there are "back room dealings." The story was very well told in such a way that it kept my interest and I cared about the outcome of the trial and the conclusion of the story.

This story is about how much a mother loved her child who was assaulted and murdered. I think the tactics defense attorney used in his closing argument sealed the deal.

I've heard the narrator before and I think that his performance was okay. I was really into the story but noticed from time to time that he could have used a little more drama or excitement in his voice.

HERE'S THE DEAL


If I was to judge this off of what I've read from the quote unquote best courtroom drama writers lately - Then this book was genius. I.E. Grisham and Sycamore row as of late. At least in this book - The main character in the Neon Lawyer acted like a lawyer and argued points. It took a little bit before i could get into the narrators voice - But once I did - He did fine. He wasn't the best - But I've heard worse for sure.

I'm not saying this book is genius. The book may not be as realistic in some areas as some people would hope - But I did like the court room drama & arguments.

I thought Victor did a fine job with this book and I will look at his others because this was my first by him....

I haven't wrote a positive review for awhile now. Very disappointed by the same old boring stuff.... This was decent enough to stop an give kudos to.

For what its worth... J
