Jake Lassiter is not your typical hero...

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

I thought this was a very interesting book in that the plot changes about 1/2 way through the book. It starts out as a medical malpractice and then changes. You have Jake the retired athlete with a sports injury turned lawyer, a daughter accusing her father's second wife of conspiring with his doctor/her sometimes lover to murder him, in the meantime there is a back up plan the good doctor is unaware of. Oh what a tangled web... If I say anything else you won't have to read the book.

What about Luke Daniels’s performance did you like?

He just did a really good job. He gets all the right inflections for the different characters.

Any additional comments?

I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this book, it's a very good courtroom thriller without too much time in the courtroom!

Another one saved by the narrator

I wouldn't have made it through if it wasn't for Luke Daniels.

This had good story potential , but it was filled with absurdities.

For instance, we're supposed believe a judge is up there presiding over a court case and reading the sports page?

How about a lawyer teaming up with a corner to do a little grave robbing. Tell me the reality in which that is possible?

There's other Ludicrous things in there that I don't have time to go into.

It's really too bad I have to get give this such a bad review - Because I think it had a pretty good idea in there somewhere
