Product Description

Review

There cannot be any dispute, Gimenez has taken over John Grisham's mantle. This is his seventh legal thriller, and his work is now faster and fresher than Grisham, his characters are stronger, and his plot lines reek of tomorrow's headlines (Daily Mail)

Gimenez does law mysteries every bit as good as John Grisham, and this latest effort won't disappoint fans of that master . . . Gimenez is a great and growing writer who hasn't let his readers down yet and doesn't look likely to (Weekend Sport)

Gimenez has created a likeable, wise-cracking action hero with a high IQ (Irish Independent)

The story whips along with Gimenez displaying the right combo of a good story, intriguing characters and a riveting plot (RTE Guide) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Book Description

The action-packed new legal thriller from the bestselling author of THE COLOUR OF LAW

Format: Hardcover
A departure for Mark Gimenez, but all the ingredients are there in spades! Fascinating characters...each one carefully painted....a good dose of American Law .... another off the beaten track interesting town, which just begs you to visit it....a really topical background (Fracking).....so nothing that departs too far from his previous novels, sort of a mix between The Color of Law and The Governor's Wife in pace, and it's real Texas to the core (I love it!)......so what's new? John Bookman is what is new and a clever formula that will ensure in subsequent novels he will always have a new and different sidekick?
And what of John Bookman... well he is best described in my mind as a thinking man's Jack Reacher.
Great work Mark...hope you have Bookman 2 ready for print!

Having read all of his previous great stories, this is another good one but seems to be filled out with padding.
Too many pages of classroom waffle that don't really add to the drama.
Having said that, the book moves along at a good pace and the hero is very likeable.
I can't wait to read the next instalment, dealing with gun control!!!

Mark Gimenez has written a fascinating account of the temptation facing small Fracking operators that probably reflects reality much more than all the pious words of officialdom

I have read all of his books and found all of them except The Governors Wife and this one to be excellent, This one was so boring it took me over a month instead of a couple of days to finish, as it is the first of a series starring John Bookman I am afraid I have better things to do with my time so I am sorry to say this will Be the last Mark Gimenez book I will be wasting my time on.

A well structured tale but too much padding with "detail". Could develop and slow but enjoyable. Glad I read it as like what he writes

This book was different and unusual. Be ready to find it "goes on a bit",in parts, but great story, plus you learn such a lot about Fracking,which is a current topic.
Give it a try, it is a good book.

An interesting start to a new series and a lively new character. Explores the subject of fracking in some detail which was enlightening, although there were the usual extremes of viewpoint. Some of the diatribes on constitutional law go on a bit, but the classroom stuff (Bookman is a lecturer) provides a good subplot. Well worth a read - great description of the Texan countryside.

A good insight into Fracking and should be required reading for those UK citizens who are interested in that subject.
