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.
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.
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.
