Fun mystery/legal

I generally enjoy a good mystery and this was no exception. I felt the character of Katherine Adams was a lot of fun and easy to relate to. There are so many twists and turns in the plot, sometimes I had to stop and think where I was, but it all came together nicely. ...

I understand that this is actually the second book author Graham has published with the two lead characters. They make a great team and I'm hoping the author will write more. I'm heading off to the store now to get his first book!

A rambling plot line and sometimes confusing storyline left me underwhelmed by this book. Although character development is usually secondary in a suspense novel, it would have been nice to see a little more evolution of the characters. Can't recommend it except for those who are not very discerning about their reading material.

    nothing special

    in the pantheon of legal thrillers, I would have to consider Dead Docket as run-of-the-mill. The book's rather paint-by-number plotting didn't really hold my interest for too many pages. On the action scale, there were more jolts and jars than twists and turns. This one seemed to be mailed in.
