Overview

The Arraignment (Paul Madriani Series #7) by Steve Martini

In this gripping New York Times bestseller, a double murder leads lawyer Paul Madriani into a web of international intrigue and conspiracy.
 
The verdict on The Jury was unanimous. Larry King in USA Today called it “a cracklin’ good read” and Publishers Weekly proclaimed it as “one of Martini’s best novels to date.” Now, The Arraignment takes Madriani into uncharted territory—into the minds of men whose murderous greed knows no bounds...and onto the front lines of the South American drug war.

The law firm of Madriani and Hinds of Coronado, California consists of two partners, Harry Hinds and Paul Madriani. They are an ethical pair who refuse to accept drug cases. At the coaxing of his trophy wife, Nick Rush, a criminal attorney at the legal giant Rocker, Dusha and DeWine, asks Paul to take on the case of Gerald Metz, a business man entangled with a grand jury probe. Nick explains he is unable to provide Metz with legal support because of a conflict of interest. Paul has doubts but meets Metz. Paul quickly figures out that his potential client is lying to him and that he might be indicted for money laundering. After consulting with Harry, they agree they want no part of the case. Paul reluctantly tells Nick he won¿t represent the man. A few minutes later as Paul is walking away from the scene, someone kills Nick and Metz in a drive-by shooting. Though he knows he has no reason to, Paul feels guilty and decides to investigate Nick¿s death. He almost gets himself and Harry killed in the process. fans will find Steve Martini¿s latest work exciting and so engrossing that it is impossible to put down until the last page is turned. Paul Madriani is the Perry Mason of the new millennium, an attorney with ethics who goes the extra mile for his client and will even work for free to see justice occur. THE ARRAIGNMENT is realistic and believable, yet so vivid a novel with strong believable characters that the storyline would make an exhilarating movie. Harriet Klausner

In the meantime while meeting on the court house steps both Metz and Nick are gunned down. Was this just a random drive-by. Who was the intended victim, Nick or Metz. Paul want to find out what really happened. Bodies start showing up that were connected to Mr. Metz. So go on roller coaster ride from California to Cancun, Mexico on Paul's quest to find out what really happened.

I have not enjoyed this book, and I keep wanting this story to hurry up and get on with it. I like the Paul Madrianni series but I am beginning to see the same thing in each book. Paul always ends up in a very dangerous fight, being knocked out by the evil-doer, and then is saves at the last moment. He has been stabbed and cut so many times in the last nine books that I am surprised he can get around. Please Mr Martini, give your devoted readers a new twist in these otherwise good lwgal thrillers.
