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 bought because of the rave reviews and because I really loved Boston Legal which Rosenberg wrote for. But ...got 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.

Bought as a Daily Deal and as a result of preponderance of 5* & 4* reviews. Interesting plot but the characters didn't ring true nor did the relationships between them.
As a senior partner in a legal firm, the main character was oddly deferential & submissive to the junior lawyer he had been instrumental in recruiting some years before and also to his "maverick" defence counsel, who quits the brief and then inexplicably accepts it again. Whilst the "hero"s legal specialism is in corporate law he shows astonishing ignorance of criminal law & jurisprudence - surely lawyers usually have basic working knowledge of other areas of law?
For a novel with a reasonably small cast of characters and a limited number of locations, the writing needs to be tighter and more focussed than this - the denouement seemed to arrive with indecent, inexplicable and incredible haste - the "twist" owes more to "Perry Mason" than anything else and the plot line deserved better.
Disappointed.

It was a bit dull for the first chapter. My heart really sank and I was really wondering if I would just not bother or if I would force my way through - because I don't like not finishing books.
At some point - and I'm not sure where, the story became interesting and then gripping. Very involved and complicated plot - and the end turns out to be a great surprise. Along the way the author throws you several red herrings so that you think that you know whodunnit - but you don't.
It's a pretty lightweight piece of writing but great for a holiday book. From time to time the main character - who is narrating to story in the 1st person gives little technical explanations as to why certain legal procedure is being followed or why a particular approach is being adopted. I enjoyed this aspect and it gave it more realism.
It's not Grisham but it is not too far away.

I wasn't too sure about this book when I first started reading it as parts of it seemed to drag slightly and I felt it, sometimes, went on for too long on certain subjects which can be a bit boring but, once I got over that, I really enjoyed it. It was nice to read a book where the story is really believable and there was nothing too 'fantastical' about it plus I didn't manage to work out the ending which, to my mind, always makes a good thriller. This is a really good book if you like legal thrillers like I do. The reason I've given it four stars is only because of my comments at the beginning but don't let that put you off. I would gladly read more of this author's books.

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. I guessed the perpetrator of the crime very early for the right reasons, not usual for me, and this was disappointing. One really good thing about the book was the insight into the world of American 'legal eagles' and the culture of maximising billing hours and reaching the offices on high floors. I shall watch out for the tv movie, it should be quite a good one.

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.

Well written book, Easy to follow and the ending is unexpected.
Was a recommendation to me and I am happy to recommend to others.
Was a bit slow in the middle but soon picked up again and was unable to put this book down.
