Tugs at the heart strings

This novel, Book 2 in the Michael Gresham series, is better than the first book. It is a profoundly disturbing, dark legal thriller. I look forward to Book 3. Gresham is a criminal defense attorney in Chicago who is practicing with his wife. There is lots of action and suspense both inside and outside the courtroom. I'm not a fan of the voice of narrator Stephen Hoye, but he does a more than credible job with this novel. Highly recommended. Oh, and when purchased at Amazon in conjunction with the Kindle version, the Audible book is very inexpensive.

Great New Author to follow

Great from start to finish. Story was explosive and moved quickly with a few surprises . Character development was strong and consistent. The reader was outstanding. it seemed to be his story and his tone was always appropriate. I will definitely buy more stories from this author.
