Overview

Murder Begets Murder is a suspenseful mystery thriller set in Washington State against a backdrop of island ferries, mountain roads, and deadly twists.

Seattle defense attorney, Mac Brodie, has a beautiful wife, two young children, and lives in tony Mercer Island on Lake Washington. He made a fortune back east so now has the luxury of picking his clients by their need, not their paycheck. His wife wants Mac to use his looks and charm to run for congress, but he loves what he does and with whom he does it. His investigator, Seth Ivarsson is a 6’7” pony-tailed behemoth ex-cop who lives on a houseboat, and describes himself as more loyal than moral. The third and last member of Brodie’s team is a thirty year-old legal assistant, Brooke Fletcher who’s in her third year of law school. Though immensely attracted to her, Mac values his family too much to mess around – and she doesn’t seem interested.

Mac’s latest client, Earl Richards, is on death row and guilty as sin. But Mac doesn’t believe in the death penalty and will do whatever it takes to get the sentence commuted. Little could he predict the nightmare that leaves everyone he loves in imminent danger and his life forever changed.

Editorial Reviews

http://www.andybarratt.co.uk/review-murder-begets-murder - A. P. Barratt
I was completely sucked in, the book was clearly very well researched and it was nice to read a view of Washington state that was not filled with sparkly vampires. I felt myself feeling the same anger Mac felt, the same horror upon reflecting on his actions, the same hatred and hopelessness as he found himself trapped in the world of an insane man using him as his puppet.

    Great train read!

    I stumbled upon Murder Begets Murder looking for another book. It sounded interesting and for five bucks, why not? So now I'm never stopping at a rest area at night again! But it's not just a creepy thriller. It delves deeply into the characters and the choices they make, while still maintaining a quick pace. It uses technology, current events, and has some subtle, and not so subtle, messages. I was pleasantly surprised that the plot didn't follow a pat path, but still remained believable. I also liked that the ending wasn't one of those where the reader has to ponder what happened. From the prologue on, it's about assumptions - some are true, and others not. I tend to read on my train commute and usually pick mysteries or crime novels. I found myself picking this one up during my lunch breaks too. A very good read.

    Highly recommended

    This was not a typical mystery/crime novel. It's anti-death penalty, which with the West Memphis 3 and Troy Davis and all the rhetoric coming from Rick Perry is very timely. But it's not a Dead Man Walking. It's more about what the death penalty is doing to all Americans without us even being aware of it.
