I love legal thrillers and this one was especially good. A femal
I love legal thrillers and this one was especially good. A female prosecutor and homicide detective play cat and mouse with two wicked killers, putting the prosecutor in the line of fire. If you like legal fiction by Lisa Scottolinr, Linda Fairstein, or John Grisham, you will be right at home with STATE'S EVIDENCE. Also recommend Flowers other legal thrillers, PERSUASIVE EVIDENCE and JUSTICE SERVED.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

First Rate Romantic Legal Thriller!
I found STATE'S EVIDENCE to be nothing short of superb --from the opening scenes to the conclusion. There were some excellent and riveting courtroom scenes that were balanced with a well-developed police procedural and a strong and satisfying romance between the protagonist prosecutor and her lover lawyer turned judge. The story will keep you guessing as to who killed whom till the end. As a true fan of legal thrillers, this one rates right up there with the best from Grisham, Rosenberg, Scottoline, Turow, and Fairstein. Highly recommended!Was this review helpful?

electrifying and enthralling legal thriller
After winning a capital murder case in Judge Crawford¿s courtroom, Assistant District Attorney in Wilameta County in Northern California Beverly Mendoza and her co-chair and lover Deputy D.A. Grant Nunez celebrate. So does the judge and his young wife but their party dissolves into a massacre when a Latina male kills the judge and brutally rapes his wife. Through good eye witnesses testimony the wife is able to point out the killer, rapist Rafael Santiago, in two line ups. The judge had sentenced him to hard time twelve years behind bars. he vowed revenge when he was sentenced. --- Beverly is the prosecuting attorney and Grant, who has been appointed as a judge, is on the bench for what seems like a slam dunk case. While at a Burger King with her son, Beverly spots a man who looks almost identical to Rafael. The police are looking for Manuel Gonzalez in the death of at least three women and he has singled out Beverly as her next target. He is arrested before he can harm her but he throws a monkey wrench into Rafael¿s case and causes Beverly to doubt her own beliefs. --- R. Barri Flowers has written an electrifying and enthralling legal thriller that will appeal to readers of Nancy Taylor Rosenberg and Barbara Parker. The courtroom scenes are very realistic and the heroine is someone readers will empathize with and admire as a role model for minorities and women. STATE¿S EVIDENCE would make a great action packed move. --- Harriet KlausnerWas this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
