5.0 out of 5 stars The Force is Strong With This One 19 July 2012
By William Stacy Huff - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
All too often I pick up a book by a "name" author and come away unimpressed. Then on occasion I find something by somebody new and within a few pages I know I've found a jewel. That is the case here. From the whodunit mystery to the vivid descriptions of working in an oppressive Imperial legal factory, Plummet is an entertaining page-turner that kept me guessing, and kept me up far too late when I couldn't put it down. I look forward to more works by Zarocostas.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ridiculously entertaining! 20 July 2012
By LP - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I really loved this book. Zarocostas gives the readers a look into the corporate legal world (especially loved being privy to the down and dirty details of a major law firm) and his ear for dialogue really captures his milieu. The plot kept me guessing the whole time, and as I drew toward the end, as much as I wanted to find all the answers to my questions, I was also bummed that it was almost over. To me, that's the hallmark of a great read.
4.0 out of 5 stars I really enjoyed this story and I think it only took me ... 11 Aug. 2016
By Austintacious - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed this story and I think it only took me a few days to read it.

Zarcocostas does a nice job of keeping the story a mystery and keeping the reader wanting more. I really enjoyed the look from inside a big legal firm and how he emphasized the the less sensational job responsibilities of a lawyer working on cases - the less glamorous things that don't happen in a courtroom, that happen during litigation and investigation, something that I think only an experienced lawyer would know about and a good writer could expose.

The story mainly follows Gabe (senior partner), Micah (newly recruited litigator) and Raphael (lawyer trying to make partner). I thought all the characters were developed excellently, especially Raphael, who is the comic relief - but his comedy stems from an overbearing pressure of trying to exceed his colleagues and bill more hours than any other lawyer, so he can make partner. He's the one with the crude jokes and fast lane lifestyle. Gabe is a dynamic character in a sticky situation, unraveling from the core of existence, trying to make good on promises he can't keep. Micah is a very green, naive lawyer who's been out of law school only a few years. My only complaint is I didn't like his dialog at all. I liked his story, but he always retorts with corny flustered lines, but that could be the author's intention.

There is two different time lines in the plot (one is moving forward in time from the past, so it starts out a year earlier, the other is moving forward in time from the present, both converge at the same date for the climax - I thought it was a great literary device) and maybe people with less attention spans can get confused. I didn't think it was all that difficult to follow the separate timelines. I could only see it as a setback if you read some of the book, put it down and came back a few weeks later - forgetting what happened.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Raw but Exceptionally Entertaining 6 April 2013
By Don Kidwell - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Ripped through this book in less than 24 hours and had a high time of it! Very engaging dialogue and story, but prepare yourself for a myriad of foul language and sexual situations. If there was one thing annoying I would say that the Star Wars references which were comical at first began wearing a bit thin by the crescendo. Not certain how the author would carry it forward with the lead protagonist, Micah, but I would definitely encourage him to try. In a similar vein, I would also recommend "Trigger City" by Sean Chercover which was a load of fun as well and actually has a prequel, too. (Please see my review for that book as well). Bravo!

5.0 out of 5 stars All the Thrill You'll Need with This One! 3 April 2014
By Kiwes - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
If you want to know what it's really like to work in a law firm, this book is definitely your guide to that path. When I say this book was awesome, that's exactly what I mean. This story had everything from murder to great legal-ese and all the mystery one can handle! I was so damn sorry the story had to end. I am praying Michael writes more legal novels because he's a brilliant writer.

Micah Grayson was fresh out of law school--had done some extensive clerking for a federal court judge back home in Kentucky, and he set his sights on the bright lights and hustle and bustle of New York City. When he interviews with a partner, who later turns out to be his mentor, Gabe Weiss, the lessons he learns from working in a huge law firm stretched even further than what Micah thought he was capable of.

The characters in the story are strong and so life-like. I loved how the author took you back to the past and mixed in the present with it. One thing I love is when an author can weave several stories together, leaving your mind in a whirlwind wondering what the hell is going on, and then when the story starts to take shape and the reader becomes one with all the plots and then--BOOM you're smacked with a damn good story and great ending to boot! If you love legal thrillers, this is the book to read. Lookout John Grisham, you've got some competition here. Michael I bet you're one hell of an attorney. I understood every single thing you did in this book. Outstanding. Looking forward to more work from you! BRAVO!!!!
