Rated 3 out of 5 by from Light Lawyer 'mystery' I don't generally read lawyer books, sticking more to the sci-fi/fantasy genre but decided to give this author a try. The context seems very John Grisham and the book flows at a pretty fluid pace. The 'twists' were for the most part pretty obvious, not a lot of subtlety to be found. Not overly intense, it is the type of book that could easily be developed into a 2 hour summer popcorn flick, the kind that requires no sequel.
