In this John Grisham-style mystery, Matt Royal, the retired lawyer turned beach bum is called back into the courtroom to defend his girlfriend J. D. Duncan's Aunt Esther, who lives in the sprawling North Central Florida retirement community of The Villages. A best-selling author has been murdered after a book signing, and Aunt Esther has been arrested. Matt has a history with the local sheriff - one which may not bode well for his client.
Matt reluctantly suits up for the courtroom, and J. D. takes a leave from the police department to go undercover. A bizarre specter from the past haunts their investigation every step of the way. As they delve further into the case, the pieces of the puzzle refuse to fall into any kind of coherent pattern. Jock Algren arrives with his special skill set to expose the real murderer and free Aunt Esther, but to no avail. Not until the case goes to trial and the evidence is revealed does the truth emerge - and a strange kind of justice prevails.

Matt Royal legal mysteries are always excellent!
Vindication, the most recent release, is Book 11 in the Matt Royal series by attorney H. Terrell Griffin. Unfortunately, only six of the 11 novels are available in audio format. Vindication is an excellent legal thriller with a superb plot and and lots of courtroom action. Like all novels in the Matt Royal series it is set in Longboat Key, Florida (central gulf coast near Sarasota). Matt Royal is a rather young and wealthy retired lawyer who seeks to avoid the courtroom, but he is never successful. In this book he is defending the aunt to his girlfriend (and police detective) J. D. Duncan. The old lady is accused of murder. As usual for him Matt Royal uses his legal skills along with some behavior which is less than legal. Steven Roy Grimsley narrates all audio books in the series. Grimsley voice and style are perfect for the series. If you enjoy legal thrillers, especially light and fun ones, the Matt Royal series is worth checking out.

Another good Matt Royal adventure
I love this series because the characters are familiar and easy to love. Narration is always superb. I had technical difficulties with it though and when I called the girl could barely speak English and couldn't understand what the problem was. I THINK I heard the whole book but am not sure. If everything is working you will enjoy the story.
