Overview

Elijah Deville is a crafty lawyer. When an employee is accused of sabotaging a brand new rollercoaster in order to kill his overly curious boss, Elijah refuses to believe it. Along with his sister Becca, and private investigator Cameron Mills, it is Elijah's job to present the best defense possible, in the hopes that the jury will see things his way. But where to start? After all, all of the evidence points to his client's guilt. The accused was seen near the coaster on the night of the sabotage; his fingerprints were found on the missing pieces of the coaster; and he owned an acetylene torch needed to commit the sabotage. Knowing all this, Elijah needs to find the courage, and evidence for that matter, in order to attain the ultimate prize: a 'Not Guilty' verdict. Who committed this murder? And more importantly how? Can you crack the case before Elijah does? Take the challenge, that is if you're up to it!

Meet the Author

J.R. Diestelkamp was born on July 4, 1983, in St. Catharines, Ontario. Growing up, Diestelkamp became interested in entering the teaching profession because of his love for working with children. He went to school at Brock University and studied Chemistry and Education. He graduated in 2006, with a Bachelor's of Education and a Bachelor of Science focused in Chemistry.Upon graduating, Diestelkamp was hired by the local school board and has been a substitute teacher up to the date of publication for this novel. Even though Chemistry is his main focus, he always has had a knack for creative writing. In 2011, he published his first novel titled 'Elijah Deville in Coasting to Death'.The series itself follows the cases of Elijah Deville, a rich Canadian lawyer situated in Toronto. Along with his sister Becca, and his investigator, Cameron Mills, Elijah helps defend guilty looking clients against scurrilous criminal charges. Somewhat based off of fictional lawyers, Perry Mason and Ben Matlock, Elijah always says that he'll vigourously defend his clients in the courtroom. However, personal ethics sometimes hinder his cause, creating situations that other fictional lawyers might not face.Unlike other detective stories, Diestelkamp attempts to place his characters in a time and place. Although real names and events, close to the time period have been changed, you'll notice that sometimes novels refer to other cases that have already happened or are about to happen. Sometimes, clues might be given in one novel, that might shed some light on a case in another one. Diestelkamp hopes that this feature not only keeps readers coming back to the series, but that it adds a sense of realism, in that these characters really do have lives, and are not just bounding from case to case.At the time of publication, J.R. Diestelkamp resides in Thorold, Ontario, a town of 18,000 people, situated about 15 minutes west of Niagara Falls. He is active in his community, including the church where he attends known as the Garden City Church of Christ. He hopes you enjoy the series, and looks forward to write many more novels in the years to come.

    This 170 page free book was okay

    This free, 170 page book was well edited. It is a lawyer, murder mystery, set in Toronto, Canada, so the laws are different than those of the United States. I found this book to be not exactly entertaing, but very interesting. It is a nice, clean read and other than the murder there is no other adult subject matter. No cursing and no violence, except for a couple of bonks on the head. My favorite thing about this book was that the word," smirked" was only used once. I am really tired of reading smirk and its derivatives. The reason I did not give this book a higher rating is because of its lack of details. The book is 99% conversation and trail testimony. I did not think the trail would ever end. I loved the defense lawyer and his bossy sister. There is some off beat humor in this book, which I enjoyed also. There is a lot packed into this book, considering its length. There is not any sex or romance, although an affair is implied. No cursing or religion either. There is not any written in Canadian accents, French words or slang or any other items, Americans would be unfamilar with. Recommended for ages 18 and up. I think anyone younger might consider this book too tedious. For all mystery lovers. This is not chick lit.

    Didn't finish this book

    Not my type of mystery. Did not care for the characters. Finally just gave up and archived the book.
