liked this legal and courtroom drama novel. Dugoni has done a good
job of combining preparing a defense case with personal drama. Keera
is a capable attorney and has a good team behind her. The part of the
novel building up to the courtroom was engaging on two fronts. One
was the actual work she was doing, the other was the drama in the
family business. Dugoni mentions in his afterward that he wanted to
bring into the plot the personal family aspect and he has done that
well. Alcoholism and sibling rivalry both show themselves. The chess
aspect was interesting too.
issues really caught my attention. One was the action that might be
taken to win a case. Here we see nefarious action on the side of the
prosecutor. We see how desperate one might be to gain political
other issue was the concern of successfully defending an accused
murderer yet being unsure of his innocence. Dugoni did a good job of
keeping tension going as we do not know for sure, not only the
outcome of the court case but also the actual innocence or guilt of
a good legal investigation and courtroom drama novel. I hope there
will be more featuring Keera.
rating: 4/5 stars.
