I am gradually working my way backwards in the David Sloane series. Robert is a top writer and this is a top book, up there with Grisham. There is wealth of procedural detail which has been well researched and well written. The various strands of the story flow along nicely. You are well informed to where you are in the story so the mystery can be your centre of attention.
David Sloane is still in mourning for his wife when he meets by accident a female attorney Reid Barclay. She is on a crusade to bring to justice the drug dealers who supplied her now dead daughter. The drug dealers is released on a technicality. The drug dealer is found dead and the evidence starts to point to the attorney who by now is an item with David Sloane. She now becomes his client dragging him into criminal law.
Will Sloane lose? There are some really big twists and turns and reveals which should keep your interest going. His friends Jenkins and Alex provide some commentary which is not affected by grand passion. But is David listening.
These are great books combining police and procedures with lots of relationship ups and downs. Should satisfy Grisham and Connelly fans.
