    Very highly recommended!

    I just finished reading this book. The bad guy was truly an interesting fellow and the author did a wonderful job of keeping you guessing what would happen next.

    So many books are very predictable with equally predictable characters.

    I found this one to be neither predictable or boring.

    It was, for me, a great read!

    I Also Recommend:

    Tense, psychological/legal thriller

    If the prologue doesn't suck you in, you shouldn't be reading this genre. This is an incredible psychological/legal thriller that kept me anxiously turning pages late into the night. The title refers to the attorney-client privilege of secrecy and the charming, yet deadly protagonist in Keeping Counsel knows how to use it when he retains his lover's best friend to represent him. The tense interplay between these two characters is reminiscent of Silence of the Lambs where the killer's compelling seductiveness barely conceals his creepy, unstable behavior. Torn between protecting her friend and upholding the law, Tara Linley walks a fine line between what's legal and what's right. Rebecca Forster's vivid descriptions and true-to-life characters jump off the page with incredible authenticity. This is one you do not want to miss.

    Read with the lights on.

    This is a spine tingling mystery. Wonderfully descriptive scene development and character development. This story takes you into the scary mind of a demented man. Walk with Tara thru her world turned upside down, as she attempts to decide her best course of action after Bill hires her as his attorney.
    Many passages will leave you holding your breath. There is a sweet love story worked into this scary mystery.

    Good Read

    I really enjoyed this book. Read it during my reading of Ms. Forster's "Witness" series and it didn't disappoint.
