Attorney-Client Privilege based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
This is an extremely well-written mystery, and I would recommend it to lovers of great mystery/thriller fiction books. But let me caution you about two things. There is some profanity--not as much as some books in this genre, but definitely there. There are also some sex scenes--not overly graphic, thank goodness. But none of these things bothered me enough to mark my review down. This story is full of twists and turns that constantly kept me guessing. I was most concerned that the vindication would come at the end--and it did! (But not in the way I thought!) I was quite interested to see the workings of the court system and see what attorneys would do to accomplish their purposes--whether it was legal or not! This book was truly non-stop action from start to finish, and I was never bored. I thought I would be able to put it down once I started, but I could not. I was not only intrigued with the mystery, but the author's take on religion made things entertaining as well. I believe her message of religious tolerance came across (I agree with that to a degree). Racism was also an important element in this story. The author's writing style was fast-paced and not too detailed--which fit the style of the book quite well. In fact, sometimes the characters were privy to something the readers did not know, and I felt I had to keep writing so I would know what the characters knew. And sometimes the reader was not informed until some time later. If you are interested in reading an attorney/mystery/thriller novel that will keep you entertained from start to finish, this is definitely it. I would highly recommend it. I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion. I was not financially compensated, and all opinions are 100 percent mine.
