Don't waste your money, this is a rip off!
I have read other Sheldon Siegel books that were pretty good. This one is only part of a book. Nothing tells you that when B/N advertised it. Therefore, I will probably not be buying any more Siegel books. Not sure if Barnes/Noble is the culprit or if Siegel is, either way I was terribly disappointed.

Yep, after only 23 chapters, 350 pages, it stops right in the middle of the story. Obviously, it's not a problem with the novel, but rather with its transition to digital form. Nevertheless, after paying for it, I expect to be able to read the full book! I requested help from B&N, but never received a reply. Bummer!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

HIS BEST YET
Many times when an author uses the same characters over and over they become stale NOT SO with Mr. Siegel's Mike and Rosie. He only gets better and better with each book. Had to be in bed for a few days figuring that the book would keep me busy for those few days only one problem I read it with in the first day as the book was so GREAT. Mr. Siegel PLEASE keep writing about the episodes of Mike and Rosie and your readers will continue to follow. Thanks for giving us such a subperb author and such a wonderful style of writing.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

A great legal thriller
They are law partners and lovers who were once married but realized they couldn¿t live together so they divorced. Lawyers Mike Daley and Rosie Fernandez agree not to take any high profile cases until their son sleeps through the night. When their friend Father Ramon Aguirre is arrested for killing a female parishioner he asks Mike and Rosie to handle the case and they agree because they won¿t turn their back on someone they care about........................ There is plenty of evidence that points to the priest as the criminal. His fingerprints are on the murder weapon, on her shoulder and on the bathtub faucets. The victim was made to look as if she committed suicide in the bathtub but the coroner rules it a homicide to make matters worse, the victim was pregnant and Father Ramon admits he donated sperm for an artificial insemination. It will take nothing less than a miracle for the lawyers to find the real killer to get the priest acquitted................................ Sheldon Siegel is to legal thrillers like Robin Cook is to medical thrillers. This enthralling novel keeps reader attention with one surprise after another bombarding the audience especially during the trial scenes in THE CONFESSION. The relationship between Mike and Rosie add an exotic dimension to this exciting courtroom drama in which the defense and prosecutor interrogation of witnesses makes for an authentic terrific tale.........................

The best legal thriller I've read in a long time.
Ex-priest turned lawyer Mike Daley doesn¿t go to confession much, but he does keep in touch with his good friend, Father Ramon Aguirre. Father Aguirre tells Mike of the sexual harassment suit that has been building against the San Francisco Archdiocese, but, just as the case heats up, the plaintiff¿s lawyer turns up dead and Father Aguirre is the lead suspect. Mike knows that Father Aguirre didn¿t commit this crime, but the evidence is overwhelming¿and when the medical examiner discovers the victim was pregnant, Mike fears that secrets from Father Aguirre¿s past might seal his fate. With nothing to go on but their instincts, Mike and his partner/ex-wife Rosie dive head first into a case of sex, corruption, religion and murder to free their client. `The Confession¿ is the BEST entry in the Mike Daley legal series. Razor sharp dialogue and twists galore will readers turning the pages frantically to discover who did it and why. I finished `The Confession¿ in one sitting¿it¿s that good. This tale of murder moves at breakneck pacing and the setting of the church mixed with sex clubs keeps it fresh. Sheldon Siegel is a master of the legal thriller. He has an undeniable gift of spinning a great yarn and his newest is his best. With so many legal series appearing and disappearing, the Mike Daley series remains strong by being exciting and original, a series that I look forward to reading for years to come. Sheldon Siegel does not stray from what he does best¿writing a GREAT story. Forget all the other lawyers turned authors before him, Sheldon Siegel is the real deal¿an author that deserves the top spot on all the bestseller lists! A MUST read!

I CONFESS...THIS BOOK IS BRILLIANT!!!!
WOW!!! What a thrill to have my annual visit not only with Mike and Rosie but also with Nick the Dick and Terrence the Terminator! This is Sheldon Siegel's fifth incredible book in this phenomenal legal/mystery series set in San Francisco and sometimes in marvelous Marin and I feel that it is definitely his best one yet! The preliminary hearing in the judge's chambers and the edge-of-seat courtroom scenes are written so well that you just cannot believe that the author is not a litigator in real life! This book will make the perfect summertime read and is guaranteed to hit the charts instantly....providing some aggressive marketing is done on the part of publishers thereby showing some modicum of respect for this truly wonderful writer. Thank you, Sheldon, for such a terrrrrrific book!!!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
