J.M. has written a beautifully intelligent, irresistible legal
thriller, full of energetic and lively characters. The "good guys"
are real people, with flesh and blood fears and hopes. There is
hard-work, lots of plot machinations that draw the reader deeply into
the story, and take the reader across the country and back again.
There is love fulfilled, and old lust enjoyed in remembrance and in
denial and loss.
There is perseverance and perspicacious deducing. There is
indefatigable pursuit of justice, using both brains and brawn, both
incorporating some sneaky maneuvering. There is a plethora of
weapons available to all characters. There are gun shot wounds, and
all this is in the pursuit of justice.
The best part of the yarn may be the tackling of a conspiracy,
luckily involving Mississippi and a variety of those who have promised
to use the shield of justice for the public good.
Add all the legal excitement, the crime-solving puzzle, and the
sex toys, and you have a riveting read that is hard to put down.
This is a great book for a long airport wait, for a wonderful stay
at the beach, or when waiting for court to begin. It is exciting,
absorbing, legally compelling, and basically covers the Seven Deadly Sins---and then some!
