Product Description

Product Description

When much-despised Marbury Marfan senior partner Simon Rafer turns up in a cold pool of blood with an ornate dagger in his back, it comes as a surprise to no one—least of all to Robert Tarza, who is first on the scene. A long-time partner at Marbury, Tarza knows dozens of attorneys in the firm who had good motive to want Rafer in the ground. But despite his own decades of conflict with Rafer—and a recent heated quarrel over a rare ancient coin Simon bought from him—Robert never imagined that homicide Detective Spritz would zero in on him as prime suspect.

As Spritz’s case builds with uncanny speed, Robert quickly falls from his respected position at Marbury to a criminal being dragged through the tabloids. Along with his kick-butt defense attorney, Jenna James, he is forced to play detective in a race to find the real killer—and uncovers a web of fraud amongst his closest colleagues in the process. In the end, only Jenna’s untested trial skills can keep him out of prison.

Revised edition: This edition of Death on a High Floor includes editorial revisions.

5.0 out of 5 stars On eof the best for many years ! 13 July 2012

Death On A High Floor: A Legal Thriller
This has to be one of the best legal thrillers I've read in many years, with a tight modern and most of all plausible plot set in Los Angeles in a law firm.
It was impressive that the characters were not all young sexy high flyers, so I felt at home with the age group :)
For me, the legal aspects of the story are brilliant, as I've just been reading about
"probable cause " in the US legal system.
Well done indeed to the author, I'll certainly be looking out for more.
Highly Recommended.

I enjoyed this book. A bit different and the main character was a bit irritating in places. There was some humour and I hadn't really guessed whodunnit for sure.

I really enjoyed this book, I had previously read Long Knives. It has the same main characters. Death on a High Floor should be read first.
The story has a good plot which seems to only have one conclusion but the twists and turns in particular in the court room made me want to not put it down.
I think the nearest equivalent is Raymond Chandler.

3.0 out of 5 stars Bit middling 14 April 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I bought because of the rave reviews and because I really loved Boston Legal which Rosenberg wrote for. But going well, but then slowed down and became, I thought rather repetitive in the middle. I kept going then suddenly the murderer was named, and I did feel that it came hurriedly and out of the blue.

3.0 out of 5 stars High (T)Ides 11 April 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Two murders a frame up of a prominent lawyer and unravelling the mystery. I enjoyed the yarn but for such a supposedly intelligent man the protagonist was helluva naive. The second character was also very unlikely even as a red herring.

4.0 out of 5 stars was a good read but the ending was disappointing
The story was good and lots of twists but didn't live up to expectations and the end left me feeling a little let down.

5.0 out of 5 stars Difficult to put down
Fast paced crime drama similar in style to John Grisham.

Short chapters make it easy to read, even on short commutes.

The book moves along just fine, has a credible cast and some good action episodes, but I felt as though the book was written just to make a tv movie. Read more
