Overview

A year after the devastating murder of his wife, attorney David Sloane has returned to Seattle after three months in Mexico. At a black-tie dinner where he’s been persuaded to give the keynote address, Sloane reconnects with Barclay Reid, opposing counsel in his most prominent case. Barclay is suffering from her own personal tragedy — the death of her teenage daughter from a drug overdose. In the aftermath, Barclay has begun an intense crusade against the Russian drug traffickers she holds responsible for her daughter’s death, pursuing them with a righteousness that matches Sloane’s own zeal for justice. Despite their adversarial past, Sloane is drawn to Barclay and for the first time since his wife died, he finds himself beginning to have romantic feelings again.

But when Barclay’s crusade stalls and a Russian drug dealer turns up dead, she stands accused of murder, and Sloane is her chosen defender. Amid the swirling media frenzy, in his first criminal case, Sloane finds himself once again in harm’s way, while mounting evidence suggests that Barclay is a woman with many secrets — and may not be quite as innocent as she seems.

With his signature fast-paced, page-turning action and exhilarating plot twists, Robert Dugoni once again proves why he’s so often been named the heir to Grisham’s literary throne.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
At the start of Dugoni's fourth legal thriller, the best yet in the series (after Bodily Harm), featuring Seattle attorney David Sloane, he attends his first public event since his wife's murder a year earlier, a benefit to promote legal aid services, where he literally runs into attorney Barclay Reid, an adversary from a previous case. Reid is also in mourning—for her college age daughter, Carly, who died of a heroin overdose. Reid mounts a charm offensive to persuade Sloane to represent her in a wrongful death suit against the Russian gangster, Filyp Vasiliev, who was behind the heroin sale that killed Carly and who has just beaten federal criminal charges after a judge tossed out crucial evidence at a pretrial hearing. The shooting death of Vasiliev in his Seattle home derails the developing romance between Sloane and Reid as well as the civil case. While many will anticipate the ending twist, Dugoni conveys the legalese in digestible form. (June)
Library Journal
David Slone (Bodily Harm) is slowly rebuilding his life after his wife's murder. He runs into Barclay Reid, a beautiful attorney and an old legal adversary. Reid is also grieving; her daughter died from a drug overdose. They start dating, but Reid is obsessed with the man she believes caused her daughter's death, so when he gets off on a technicality, Reid decides to go after him via a civil suit with the famous "Jury Master" himself, Slone, as her new lawyer. The romance flourishes until the drug kingpin ends up dead, and Reid is arrested for his murder. Slone reluctantly tackles her defense, his first time in a criminal courtroom, but Reid isn't always forthcoming, and Slone finds his case unraveling. After his investigator uncovers some troubling evidence, the suspense really ratchets up a notch until the final, surprise ending. VERDICT Tight plotting and well-developed characters push Dugoni to the head of the legal thriller pack in what is probably his finest book to date. John Grisham and Scott Turow fans should add Dugoni to their list of must-reads.—Stacy Alesi, Palm Beach Cty. Lib. Syst., Boca Raton, FL

    Excellent

    Murder One is an excellent and dramatic courtroom novel. There is no reason to say more as I wouldn't want to give away anything that might surprise you if you read the novel, but I will say that I did not get a free copy of the book, nor an advance copy, and have no interest in Nook pricing! And I've never met Robert Dugoni.

    Took me to the end

    I usually figure mysteries out fairly quickly. This one took me to the end. I like the characters and the story line. I read as much as I could get away with between work, wife and sleeping.

    Robert Dugoni brings back David Sloane!

    Murder One is the next gripping installment in Robert Dugoni's intense series featuring his "Can't Lose" lawyer David Sloane. There's not a case David won't win, or is there? Finally returning from the self-imposed exile that David succumbed to after the tragedy that befell him, he finds himself grudgingly front and center the focus of attention when asked to be keynote speaker at a gathering of contemporaries. At last, trying to slip out the back door who does he cross paths with but his past rival and nemesis, Barclay Reid. In a change of character, Barclay is sympathetic providing the broken and vulnerable David with the private details of a tragedy of her own. They very soon find themselves banded together to bring to justice the source of Barclay's pain, as well as treading into a relationship on a personal level. No sooner partnered, do they find themselves questioned in their target's murder with Barclay placed in custody as number one suspect..can David work his magic and get Barclay cleared? He is the best there is, surely he can do it! David sets out on his mission to clear Barclay's name, he knowing in his heart she is being wrongly accused, things start to add up differently. In the midst of his first criminal trial David and his band of covert associates work to put the pieces together, working the clues no matter where they lead truth be told, with police and experts seeming to fall behind. A fast-paced page turner with twist and turns no one sees coming, back-tracking to past unsolved cases, missing persons and witnesses that seem to have their own agenda. It wouldn't be David Sloane without the danger to himself and his knight in shining armor sense of righteousness.

    Dugoni is in top storytelling form

    Robert Dugoni's latest David Sloane legal thriller is actually more of a mystery than a thriller. But that isn't a bad thing. The author is in top storytelling form, weaving a complex plot that has the reader turning pages and trying to guess whodunit right up to the very end. In previous novels, Sloane has gone up against government and corporate conspiracies with long arms and deep pockets that threaten his life and the lives of the people he cares about. There seem to be dangers at every turn. Now, year after his wife was murdered by someone involved in one of those cases, he goes back to work and tries to get back to living. Before he knows it, he's romantically involved with Barclay Reid, another lawyer and former adversary, she's accused of murdering the drug kingpin she blames for the tragic overdose of her daughter, and he's put in the position of defending a criminal case, something he's never done. As the investigation unfolds, all of the evidence indicates that Barclay is guilty. Sloane and his private investigator friend Charles Jenkins struggle to make the all the pieces fit and find the real killer. At least this time his adversaries are straight-shooting cops and the legal system and some uncooperative witnesses. Sloane's heart and integrity are on the line, even if his life isn't. Murder One is a fine addition to the David Sloane series. Robert Dugoni has filled it with colorful characters and local details that add life and depth to what might otherwise have been a dry police procedural. Highly recommended.

    HIGHLY Recommend

    I have now finished 4 of Robert Dugoni's books and the more I have read the more I have enjoyed them. My wife turned me on to him after he gave a lecture @ our community book club and I have really been glad that she introduced me to him. Murder one was the best of the ones that I have read to date and I look forward to my net one.

    Disappointing!

    Dugoni is one of my up and coming favorites, but I found the plot of this addition to the David Sloane series to be too reminiscent of Michael Connelley's "The Lincoln Lawyer." Essentially, a lawyer who usually carefully maintains a healthy skepticism about the guilt or innocence of a client finds his guard is down regarding a current female client on trial for murder. Fortunately, suspects are in abundance and ultimately justice of one kind or another prevails. The Sloane character is appealing and dynamic, in spite of his sensitivity and an anguished conscience, hindrances that Connelley's roguish and appealing bad boy Mickey Haller manages to short circuit. The plot in both instances keeps the reader guessing, but Connelly's mastery of wit, pacing, and characterization leaves Dugoni's Sloane always a few beats behind. If you read only one, go with Connelley.

    I love the David Sloane Books!

    Dugoni is fun to read, and his main character, David Sloane is a great guy to read about. I have read all four of his books, and anxiously await the next.

    The fourth Sloane legal thriller is a strong entry

    In Seattle, thirteen months ago attorney David Sloane's wife was murdered. Now he makes his first speaking engagement since she died at the Rainier Club to promote legal aid services. Afterward as he starts to sneak out he literally runs into lawyer Barclay Reid who he opposed in court last year. She also grieves a close loss, the death of her daughter Carly from a heroin overdose. Reid wants to hire Sloane as her lawyer in a wrongful death suit against Russian expatriate car dealership owner Filyp Vasiliev, who recently beat a drug rap when a judge tossed out as inadmissible key evidence. Barclay insists the monster makes his money selling heroin including the amount that killed her daughter.

    Soon after their meeting, someone kills Vasiliev in his luxurious mansion. The police suspect Reid who has the motive. Instead of a wrongful death suit, Sloane defends his client against a murder charge in which the evidence seems heavily to affirm she killed Vasiliev. Private investigator Charles Jenkins seeks contrary information to support Reid's contention of innocence.

    The fourth Sloane legal thriller is a strong entry as he works the jurisprudence system while his partner works the Seattle streets. Fast-paced, this time the hero is not being shot at, as he battles in court. Readers will enjoy Sloane's return to the living in this fine legal thriller with an anticipated but enjoyable final twist.

    Even though I guessed the ending, this did not hamper the excellent writing style and terrific characters in this book. There were enough twists and turns to make this read hard to put down.
