    A great lgl thriller

    On a ranch near Dallas, charismatic Senator Tucker ¿Chase¿ Dean shoots an undocumented migrant worker Elijandro "Ellie" Torres in what the police conclude is a tragic hunting accident. With tears and a catch in his throat the cherished politician tells what happened to the media and the public. His remorse makes him even more popular and enhances his road to the White House.<BR/><BR/>However, the victim¿s family insists he was cold bloodedly murdered by the affluent senator. The police ignore her accusations, but Legal Aid attorney Casey Jordan decides to follow up after meeting the widow and baby before they are deported. Casey soon learns that Tucker¿s wife was visiting the deceased. She begins to make a case that the powerful senator¿s motive for murder was being the cuckolded spouse. When the DA rejects prosecuting the case, Casey sues in civil court.<BR/><BR/>The star of twisting legal thriller THE LETTER OF THE LAW returns in another impossible scenario. This time Casey takes on a super power who manipulates everyone so that he is ABOVE THE LAW. The story line is fast-paced and like Casey¿s previous appearance filled with terrific spins. Although the support cast comes from legal thriller typecasting, heroic Casey is a delight as a modern day Dona Quixote fighting windmills.<BR/><BR/>Harriet Klausner

    I agree with some of the complaints regarding the page long reviews written by some of the readers where they write what the story is about. I, for one am NOT going to read your reviews. So I am not even going to say it's rude and insensitive. Look up the word REVIEW. It means to evaulate or criticize, in other words, either ya like the book or you don't.

    Casey is back...

    I stumbled upon The Letter of the Law about five years in a bargain section and was hooked. Since then, I have read everything Tim has written and think he improves with every release.

    Although, I enjoyed Above the Law because of its many twists and turns, I thought it was too short and somewhat predictable in spots. I realize that high profile people are in fact, Above the Law, but I was truly hoping for a riveting trial scene in the book...where within, Casey worked her magic again, but to my disappointment there was not one. Nonetheless, this is a legal thriller that I would recommend. I look forward to Mr. Green's next release.

    Action packed legal thriller

    Lawyer Casey Jordan was first introduced in The Letter of the Law. She has left the high powered firm she was with and has opened a legal aid clinic.

    Senator Chase has a tragic hunting accident on his property, killing one of his Mexican workers. But when a woman comes to Casey's clinic and says that her sister in law's husband was murdered by the Senator, she reluctantly agrees to look into it, not putting much stock in the idea of a murder. But when she is thwarted at every turn and discovers first hand how the Senator controls the law in his corner of Texas, she becomes a believer. Aided by her investigator Jose, they discover that this murder is a cover up for something far bigger.

    Tim Green has created another solid legal thriller in Above the Law. Although some of it is predictable - the sexual tension between Casey and Jose, the bucking against the odds, tenacious, good looking female lawyer and the 'untouchable' bad guys, it also deals with some very relevant topics. Namely the abuse and plight of illegal immigrants. Green has woven together this element with non stop action and produced a very entertaining read.

    Green himself has had an interesting journey - he played pro football for eight years, was a sports commentator and also earned his law degree.
