Overview

First in the Barbara Holloway mystery series, Death Qualified masterfully combines mystery, science fiction, and a keen examination of legal ethics. Lucas Kendrick appears at his estranged wife’s home after a mysterious seven-year disappearance, and is instantly shot. Nell Kendrick, charged with his murder, calls Attorney Frank Holloway to defend her. But Frank cannot prepare her defense alone. He needs a lawyer who is “death qualified”—able to defend capital cases. He appeals to his daughter Barbara, who, out of disillusionment with a profession prizing politics over justice, abandoned her practice five years before. Reluctantly, Barbara is plunged into a case involving chaos theory, the mysterious death of a researcher, and a politically motivated and hostile prosecutor. To complicate matters, Barbara falls in love with a mathematician whose help she seeks in unraveling the case.

I struggled to get the pages to turn all through the book and it won't let me finish the last 3 pages after reading over 1800 pages. I don't know what the problem is, but I am ready to buy a Kindle and forget the nook for good
