Summary

U.S. Vice President Tom Bradshaw is the perfect candidate, a presidential "sure thing". This, despite the unfortunate mistake made in his youth, a transgression he turned into triumph. But when the future president is found dead in the penthouse of Boston's finest hotel, the American people want answers, and his administration need a scapegoat.It has been 10 years since Boston attorney David Cavanaugh has spoken to his ex-wife Karin, and 12 years since she left him for another man...a man of power and influence. Now, she has called to ask the impossible. She wants him to represent her husband in the case of the century; the charge: murder. The victim: the vice president of the United States.Now Cavanaugh faces the toughest decision of his career, a decision he knows will ultimately see him face off with his past and carve out his future. What he does not realize is that Tom Bradshaw's death is not what it seems. Three more are dead, and his enemies will stop at nothing to protect their secret and consolidate their power...for they are an unbreakable band of four, and their word is Gospel.

Tedious, obvious, boring ..

I've just finished this book - I usually listen to anything by James Patterson or Michael Connolly - awful, just awful, so slow, conceited and tedious, the only reason I finished it, is because I listen to Audio books while I work. The plot of this story is obvious and dull from start to finish, with no real shocks or twists through it. As a 'Legal-thriller' it barely qualifies! Bad characters, who are genuinely one dimensional. Awful passages that grate and embarrass me as a listener. This book could have been abridged to a 45 minute TV show of the quality of Murder She Wrote!

Only Audible title I ever abandoned

I cannot speak for the plot of this book, as I never got far enough to judge it fairly. I almost stopped the book in the first 30 minutes, then decided to give it more time. I lasted about a third of the way into the book. Too much tedious descriptive detail bogs down the character and plot development. Does a reader really need to know the precise style of furniture in every room a character enters?

Good story...wish someone else read it

This is my first Sydney Bauer book. The story was very good but I just couldn't get past the guy reading it to truly enjoy it. He sounded like he was reading Shakespeare throughout the entire book rather than a suspense. I'm so frustrated when I can't stand listening to a book simply because of the voice because it seems that this author uses this person a lot and I really would like to get another but I just can't. I miss Frank Mueller so much....
