This is the second novel I have read by Pamela Samuels- Young. It is a mystery which follows the career and personal life of L.A. attorney Vernetta Henderson. The author does a great job with her characters, who are very believable, and the story is fast-paced and keeps the reader interested with many twists and turns. I liked the fact that the book touches on contemporary issues through an exciting, compelling story and realistic but entertaining characters.

I was excited to see that Pamela Samuels had written a second book since I enjoyed her first one so much. This one did not disappoint me and provided an excellent story from start to finish. Being a guy, I have leaned toward stories that haven't focused on a female lead character, but this was definitely not a 'chick' book! I can't wait for future books from this writer.

MS YOUNG HAS DONE IT AGAIN!!!!   I WAS ON THE EDGE OF MY SEAT TRYING TO FINISH THIS BOOK ASAP.  I NEEDED TO KNOW, WHAT WAS GOING TO HAPPEN TO VERNETTA.  AND I ALSO WANTED TO KNOW, WHAT WOULD BE THE OUTCOME WITH LAKEESHIA.  I THOUGHT THIS BOOK LOST A LITTLE OF IT'S LUSTER TOWARDS THEN END.  THAT IS WHY I ONLY GAVE IT 4 STARS.  BUT, IT WAS STILL A PAGE TURNER AND ATTENTION GRABBER.  I WILL RECOMMEND IT FOR READING.  I AM NOW OFF TO START, MURDER DOWN BELOW.

In this not quite a sequel but more of a continuation to "Every Reasonable Doubt," author Pamela Samuels-Young returns with lawyer Vernetta Henderson. After a recent large success in the courtroom, Vernetta is on the fast track to a coveted partnership with O'Reilly and Finney, the first for an African American attorney. The only possible impediment is her current case. At first, the case appeared to be a slam dunk, but Vernetta quickly learns things are not as they seem and that someone will stop at nothing to get their way, up to and including murder. Samuels-Young again engages readers with the happenings of her heroine. IN FIRM PURSUIT convincingly establishes Vernetta as hardworking and determined yet sensitive and relatable. Samuels-Young delivers a suspense laden, well-paced story of murder, deceit and deadly ambitions. From its tense opening to the very last page, IN FIRM PURSUIT will entertain readers. Highly enjoyable. I recommend to anyone looking for a good read. Reviewed by: Toni

Pamela Samuels-Young's second novel is even better than her first. As an avid reader of mysteries and legal thrillers, I appreciate not only a good story, but also quality writing and character development. Pamela's characters are real, interesting people and she weaves a taut and original tale with them.

This book is a thrill ride from start to finish. Lots of suspense and uncertainty about what was going to happen. The writing style is easy to read, but not dumbed down. The author created an excellent story line full of greed, violence, backstabbing, loyalty, love and the law. This is or is not a contest with Grisham, but this author is a solid contender for his spot if her books get out there. My favorite genre is intrigue and mystery -- it's what I read. So I know what I'm talking about. *******

From the moment I opened In Firm Pursuit by Pamela Samuels-Young I was drawn to the legal novel. I love anything legal and this book was a legal mystery mixed with some personal issues. The main character, Vernetta Henderson is determined to make partner in her law firm, but her high-file case will make or break her career. In the midst of the law she has a husband who lives out of town and his indiscretions is up for discussion. Ms. Henderson also has a friend, Special she has to deal with. Special is something else. She wants to help Vernetta solve a mystery of a sexual harassment case that turns to a death, and the stakes are high this time when Special is almost murdered. Vernetta is in deep trouble and her survival is the key. Jefferson Henderson has a secret and her name is LaKeesha who is determined to have her man. She would do anything to make it happen, and she gets her way when she gives him sexual gratification and blackmails him when he informs her that their sexual imprudence can never happen again. He spends his time trying to keep the truth from his wife, Vernetta. Special finds out and she takes matters into her own hands. In Firm Pursuit is a page-turner and I enjoyed every page of it. I was on a mode of suspense waiting for what was going to happen when I turned the next page. I was enthralled in such a realistic legal novel, and enjoyed the aspects and details of the law. This book gets five stars (*****) and more for a job well-done. The characters are engaging and the length a law firm will go through to hide a scandal is unbelievable. This novel will make it to the best selling list, I guarantee.

Pamela Samuels book 'In Firm Pursuit' takes you from the struggles of a small hard working company to the wheeling and dealing of Corporate America. Murder suspense with plenty of surpries and twist. Love the way all characters tied together. The last couple of chapters will take your breath away.

In Firm Pursuit a legal thriller by Pamela Samuels-Young. Vernetta Henderson, the intelligent young attorney from Every Reasonable Doubt, is back. This time she is in the midst of a sexual harassment suit that seems open and shut until mysterious things start to happen throughout her case. When the story begins, Vernetta has an opportunity to settle the case for little or nothing but refuses. She refused a little too soon because she discovers shocking information regarding her star witness and then is dealt another blow when her lackluster opponent switches strategy and bring in a high powered attorney to first chair. On a personal note, Vernetta is struggling because her husband Jefferson is working out of town and his visits have diminished. As in Every Reasonable Doubt, Jefferson feels that Vernetta puts too much of herself into her job and not enough time into them. With Jefferson¿s weird behavior and a little coaching from her best friend Special, doubt sinks in and has Vernetta and Jefferson fighting to save the love and sanctity of their marriage. This book was a joy from beginning to end. I immensely enjoyed the character Special and I hope that she gets a book of her own, hint-hint. With that said, Ms. Samuels-Young has once again delivered an outstanding read that ends way too soon. In Firm Pursuit is a top notch, fast paced legal thriller whose characters are so intriguing they refuse to be put down. This is definitely another home run for this master storyteller. Eleanor S.
