    A Good Michael Daley Thriller

    Siegel takes the Michael Daley in a new direction. In this one his partner & ex-wife Rosie is sick with cancer while her neice Angela is arrested for a murder. Lacking the usual courtroom drama, this book focuses more on Michael and Rosie trying to learn the truth to get Angela out of jail before she becomes a suicide victim. Noticeably absent in this one is Nick Hanson, PI who is usually very entertaining. Instead we have Jaella PI and ex-cheerleader. Maybe Michael's brother Pete will finally have his day! While all this goes on Michael is having an extremely secretive affair with a judge which causes all kinds of conflict of interest situations. Though not up to the same level of some of the other Siegel Daley books, it is still a superior read mainly because of Daley's wisecracking thoughts around everything he says.

    A MUST read!

    Mike Daley is back, and with the help of his partner (and ex-wife) Rosie, he is out to find the killer of movie director Big Dick MacArthur. Richard (Big Dick) MacArthur was riding high as one of Hollywood¿s top directors, but after several box office disappointments MacArthur needs a hit, and he may have it with his new film 'The Return Of The Master.' Following a private screening of the film Big Dick is hit with mixed opinions, and much criticism against the performances in the film, mainly that of his wife Angel, who was cast in the lead. On the morning following the screening Big Dick is found dead, beaten with his Oscar statue. The police have their suspect, Dick¿s wife Angel. Angel was found past out in the front seat of his car parked on the bridge where his body was found, and next to her is a bag of cocaine, to make matters worse her fingerprints are found on the murder weapon. Mike and Rosie could not make it as husband and wife, but they make a great team of defense lawyers, and when the call comes in about Big Dick¿s murder they know they will have their work cut out for them, especially since Angel is Rosie¿s niece. Rosie, battling her own personal issues, must find the strength to help her niece, and at the same time look out for her brother Tony who is in the middle of a graft proposal. As the murder case heats up, and Tony gets deeper involved with wrong doings, Mike¿s relationship with a woman judge is put to the test, a fellow lawyer¿s son is arrested on drug charges, and Rosie hides a secret that will shock them all. `Criminal Intent¿ is an ABSOLUTE MUST READ PAGE-TURNER. This novel starts off with a bang and plummets ahead at warp speed. The murder plot unfolds with the unveiling of secrets, and the discovery of each character with something to hide. The various sub-plots are introduced and then woven into the main plot with such precision that the reader can do nothing but hold on tight and enjoy the ride. Sheldon Siegel has written two previous EXCELLENT novels, and he is continuing the streak with his best novel yet. Complex plot, cliff-hangers at the end of each chapter, interesting characters, witty dialogue, razor-sharp suspense, and lightning fast pacing sets this novel far apart from others in the genre proving Sheldon Siegel will be around a long time. Forget Grisham, Turow, and Lescroart¿ Sheldon Siegel is the author to read if you want an entertaining legal thriller. This MUST read novel should rocket up the bestseller list¿s, and keep readers anxious for the next book in the Mike Daley series. Nick Gonnella

    engaging legal thriller

    Producer Richard ¿Big Dick¿ MacArthur dies by apparently falling off the deck of his Baker Beach, California home. The police detain the movie mogul¿s third wife, Angelina Chavez, who was found by a bridge unconscious in a family car. After questioning and checking out her story, the police accuse Angelina of murdering her spouse as the murder weapon, his Oscar, is in the trunk of her vehicle. San Francisco attorneys Mike Daley and Rosie Fernandez become the defense team because Angelina is the niece of the former. <P>The Big Dick case would be difficult enough to provide a defense for without the family connection. However, the lawyers have other clients in various states of legal trouble with most related in some way to the firm. Trying to balance each one¿s need while working a homicide case keeps Mike and Rosie working overtime. <P>The latest Daley-Fernandez novel is an engaging legal thriller that is superior when the story line focuses on either the Big Dick homicide case or the tour of the Streets of San Francisco. The secondary legal cases feel like filler and leave the impression that except for the police, the entire Bay Area is related to Mike, Rosie, or someone else in the firm. Still the prime plot is cleverly developed so that sub-genre readers will enjoy the homicide defense while series fans will like insight into the extended family. <P>Harriet Klausner

    BEST SUMMER BEACH BOOK!!!!

    GRAB this one fast before it sells out cuz Mike and Rosie are back and this time with Big Dick and Angie and a cast of amazing characters that will make you laugh and cry and even shudder at their antics. The previous two marvelous books were fantastic but this one is fatter, juicier and most definitely the best one yet. i completely totallly agree with each and every word that nick gonnella wrote in his review. you'll definitely have fun revisiting mike and rosie's favorite haunts in the glorious city of San Francisco while they solve their latest case. What more could you possibly want or need in a book? Thanx, Sheldon, for the continuing saga of these two crazy attorneys and here's to many more! I, for one, cannot wait for the next fun caper.
