    This book was amazing. Lost a lot of sleep to it but worth every wink.

    This book has a fatal flaw - its not very good!

    I received this book in the mail as a free gift from the publisher and I certainly don't think I will read anymore Lashner work. The book is too long and the characters are not interesting. No suspense at all, halfway through the book the reader probably won't care who killed Hailey because they will be off on a wild goose chase. Very disappointing novel.

    A very clever and ingulfing thriller

    The title says it all in this novel. Every character is flawed and even the characters you hope to prosper- are the characters you're not so sure you even like all that much. 'Fatal Flaw' is a non-stop fantastic read with morality, suspense, law, all connected with passion. Highly recommend

    Look Out Grisham et. al., Lashner is Up to Speed!

    Captivating from beginning to end - Lashner deserves a space at the top. Fatal Flaw screams for a 'Warning Sign' Do NOT Begin Unless You Have a Day to Finish. Depth of each character and a plot thicker than Irish Stew makes even the heart of stone race against the clock. It's better to have one Lashner every 5 years and enjoy his wicked talents than the boiler-plate 'yearly' publications of late.

    Exciting legal thriller

    Although the prime suspect is a close friend, Philadelphia attorney Victor Carl believes that lawyer Guy Forrest killed his live-in lover in a crime of passion. When Victor arrived at the rainy scene, he found Guy sitting naked outside the house he shared with the victim, holding a gun. Inside Hailey Prouix had been shot dead. Guy, who left his family for Hailey, swears he did not kill her, but Victor thinks otherwise.<P> The police arrest Guy for murder. Although Victor is the defense attorney, he has his own agenda pushed by his personal obsession for Hailey, whom he slept with too. Even while he wants his client locked away, Victor investigates the couple. He learns that the two lovers were on opposite sides of a medical malpractice suit leading to his wondering if his client might be a victim of a seduction in order to win massive damages for her patron. He looks elsewhere for a clever killer, which leads Victor ultimately to Hailey¿s West Virginia hometown where secrets and murder reside in the gene pool.<P> This is an exciting legal thriller that brazenly steps off the edge, but never lands into free fall due to the energy of the vigorous story line. The two lawyers are interesting characters sharing in common besides the law a need for the deceased. Victor is especially intriguing as he plans to hang his pal until the evidence confirms that his client is a victim too. Hailey and her roots (no literary pun intended) provide a nice spin. Though gimmicks are the only flaw, they are not fatal to a gratifying legal thriller.<P> Harriet Klausner
