Praise for Margaret McLean
“On your shelf of legal thrillers, move the Grishams aside and make room for Margaret McLean. She’s got all the knowledge of an insider and —more importantly—all the skills of a great storyteller. She’ll take you into the offices and the holding cells and the courtrooms, and you’ll believe every detail and nuance. Then she’ll start to heighten and tighten and twist and turn, and you won’t be able to put the book down. Go and read it.”
—William Martin, New York Times bestselling author of City of Dreams, on Under Fire
"McLean's first novel takes the reader on a terrific journey through the machinations of Boston law. Under Fire is a compelling legal thriller with vivid characters, a realistic feel to the proceedings, and a case that ignites our interest practically on the first page. McLean, a law professor and former criminal prosecutor, knows her stuff and, even better, knows how to translate it to fiction."
"Authentic and compelling, a reflection of McLean’s skill as a writer and her years as an assistant district attorney for Essex County."
—The Patriot Ledger on Under Fire
"This fast-paced debut legal thriller by a former criminal prosecutor offers an interesting immigrant twist. It should appeal to Richard North Patterson fans."
