One thing that always drives me nuts with books like this is the heroine is tiny - and yet manages to fight off huge men, sometimes two at a time. She also doesn't do as she's told (that plot idea is really getting tired) and walks into risky situations that most normal women would walk away from (I know I would).
I was actually really surprised to come on to write this review - and find the author is female. I would have placed money on it being a man as there is what I would consider far too much page space taken up by fight descriptions (Krav Maga). Personally my preference, in a book, is just to have a couple of lines and then the outcome. Not page after page of which arm was twisted and at what angle, where someone was kicked etc. For me when I read a fight scene I start trying to envisage the positions that have been described and I lose concentration.
It's hard to put my finger on it - but I didn't really warm to Sasha or any of the other characters. I read to the end to find out how it wrapped up - but even that left me feeling a little "meh".
To wrap up - for a free book , it was ok. Might not of been so happy if I'd paid for it. Showed some promise.
Finally I am not the least bit interested in the pecking order in law firms in America. OK that is the author's background and she may well find it absolutely fascinating. But it left me cold and I didn't think it added to my understanding of what was happening. In fact I was so bored that I flicked through those passages.
Did I read the story right to the end - yes. Am I glad that I didn't pay for it - yes. Would I pay £3.99 for the next book in the series - no.
Melissa Miller has gone to great lengths to ensure that this book covers the LEGAL aspects that a case such as this would entail, that's why it's called a LEGAL THRILLER. She's found a brave young woman, Sasha McCandless as the leading character and all the other characters play their parts well.
So - my summing up: A fast paced book full of intrigue, deception and double crossing. I particularly enjoyed the legal side that the author, thanks to her background brings to this book. I also enjoyed the fact that this could be a scenario that could be based on truth. Who are we to know what is being thought up “out there” to make money at any cost? I look forward to meeting up with Sasha McCandless in the rest of the series.
