Book Description

Scott, it's Rebecca. I need you.'



After years of silence, Texan lawyer Scott Fenney receives a devastating phonecall from his ex-wife. She has been accused of murdering her boyfriend, Trey - the man she left Scott for - and is being held in a police cell. Now she is begging Scott to defend her.



Scott is used to high-stakes cases, but this one is bigger than anything he has handled before. If Rebecca is found guilty, she will be sentenced to life imprisonment. Her future is in his hands. As he prepares to take the stand in the most dramatic courtroom appearance of his life, Scott is forced to question everything he believes to get to the truth - to save the life of the ex-wife he still loves....

Review

This mix of family values, sex, sleaze and intrigue holds together in a gripping read with unexpected twists that ranks with anything Grisham has done in years (The Times)

For my money, Grisham has grown stale over the past five years while Gimenez has gone from strength to strength...this is one of the best legal thrillers since Scott Turow's Presumed Innocent in 1987 (Daily Mail)

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding from start to finish 20 April 2010
By Phil Robertshaw VINE VOICE
Format:Hardcover
Every now and then, a book comes along which you don't want to end. Accused is one of those books, and Mark Gimenez's finest novel to date.

This is the fifth Mark Gimenez novel and the first to follow up a previous one. Accused carries on where his debut The Colour of Law left off, the other novels all standing alone. A. Scott Fenney receives a desperate phone call from his ex-wife Rebecca, who left him for a professional golfer, Trey Rawlins, but is now accused of his murder. The story follows Scott and his small team's investigations into who could possibly have been responsible for Trey's murder, leading up to the trial itself.

What makes this such a great novel? It's hard to know where to begin. Certainly the quality of the writing is excellent, and Gimenez has created a set of immensely likeable characters - Scott's daughters and his four associates all feature throughout, and are all well drawn. The prose is very, very readable and it is a page-turner; not of the James Patterson ilk, where two page chapters are used to keep the reader racing through - this is just such a pleasure to read that you see no reason why you should put it down. And you shouldn't.

From the prologue, which pulls the reader straight into the action, to the breathtaking denouement, Accused is a fabulous legal thriller. If you haven't read The Colour of Law, it's advisable to do so first in order to fully understand the history of the characters and to appreciate why they behave in the way they do. Accused also contains several revelations about the previous book which you would be best to avoid if you plan to read it. But that said, I believe Mark Gimenez will really make people sit up and take notice with this latest book, and it's about time he was recognised more widely. Forget the Grisham comparisons - this is an author who is going places and making his own name the benchmark to live up to. Superb.

4.0 out of 5 stars Life goes on 18 April 2011
By Michael Watson TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback
This is a better book than 'The Colour of Law' and, given that the book is pushing 600 pages, it is a story which is easily read. It would be better for new readers to start with the previous book, since just about all the characters - certainly the main ones - have background which relates very much to the first book. The author explains some of this as we go along but, even so, you need to catch the flavour and the style of writing, I think, the better to see where this book goes.

There is the still the same rather simplistic attitude to relationships which in real life just wouldn't pan out like that. However, it's an intriguing story as Scott Fenney acts as his ex-wife's defence lawyer, the wife being accused of her boyfriend's murder. Did she or didn't she? As the story unfolds, the number of people who could be considered as alternatives mount up, unlike, for a change, the body count.

It seems the boyfriend is not all he tries to portray to the general public. His off-course antics during the major golf tournaments in the US present a somewhat different picture. In fact, if you are a golfing fan, you'll probably enjoy the book even more. I'm not but it didn't put me off the the main thrust of the investigation.

The author is at his best in the court room scenes. These, however, take place towards the end of the book but it's an enjoyable read to that point and a better one after that.

It's probable that the character of Scott Fenney has gone as far as it can but as for Rebecca Fenney, his ex-wife, maybe there's another story looming. Could be quite an event.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic - I couldn't put this down 28 April 2010
Format:Hardcover
This book is a follow on from a previous book so it was nice that you already knew most of the characters although it is also a book in its own right and you don't have to have read the previous one to enjoy this.

It is not often that a book has me guessing all the way through. This book was totally unputdownable! I read a third one night and grudgingly put it down at midnight and I planned on reading the following third the next night and the final third the night after, I had to finish it the following night, stayed up till 2am, was tired and grumpy at work the next day but it was well worth it.

The book states it is better than John Grisham or your money back - it leaves Grisham standing! Can't wait for the next book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just fantastic 27 May 2010
By Grace
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Following on from the Colour of Law this book is a masterpiece in suspense. I couldn't wait to get to the end to find out who the killer was and yet I didn't want it to finish. Had a job to put it down and only then when I really had to. If I ever get into deep,deep water I want A Scott Fenney as my lawyer. Grisham better look over his shoulder 'cause there's a new man in town. Can't wait for the next novel and hope it uses the same characters as I am getting so used to them.

3.0 out of 5 stars A good read, but not many twists 14 July 2011
Format:Paperback
This book was recommended to me by a friend and was the first I've read by this author. It follows on from a previous title, Colour of Law, and while it's not essential to have read this first, it may have helped in getting a better understanding of some of the characters.

The story revolves around a lawyer, Scott Fenney, who is asked by his ex wife Rebecca to defend her against the charge of murdering the top golf pro she left him for. Most of the book involves Scott and his team gathering evidence to suggest Rebecca may not be guilty of the murder, but can Scott trust Rebecca - is she telling him the whole truth?

At the end of the day it's the type of story you would see on Law and Order or CSI Miami etc. and therefore whilst being a good read, lacked major twists or surprises. I would consider reading this author again, but there would be no point reading Colour of Law after the Accused as the latter briefly summaries the story of the former.
