"As if by magic..."
With such a wonderful title and Scott Brick narrating, despite the horrible cover I was anticipating a really excellent book. And the early chapters did not disappoint. The story promised to be intriguing, exciting and with unexpected happenings. Sadly, though, it slowly morphed into the ridiculous. The violence, sex, murder and mayhem didn't phase me, it was the silliness of the scenes invoked in my head that had me laughing rather than being shocked at the anticipated horror. A case, I fear, of too much shown where a little more mystery would have achieved what excess could not. Think of the Masons! And the idea of our wimpy main protagonist winning out against all the odds and of the father-daughter relationship as given: I'm sorry, it was just plain daft. Perhaps it's because I'm British ...
Despite the (mostly) predictability of it all, I istened to the very last word. Why? Scott Brick, of course. He could make reading a government document stunning and realistic. His deliciously warm voice echoed the emotions of the text without breaking into guffaws of laughter, all beautifully modulated, and with individually distinctive character dialogue. And, of course, he became Mark Wilson, the foolish but nice lawyer hoping to succeed, who is recounting his story. By his narration, Brick turned the, frankly, risible into high drama.
Did I enjoy the book? Well, yes, it was fun, like a comic book, with dastardly villains and nowhere to hide. But it could have been so much better, a real chiller, had the author tried a little less hard to shock and been slightly more original with some of the nasties that were revealed. My thanks to the rights holder for gifting me my copy of Murdering Lawyers, via Audiobook Boom. I notice that the ending leaves just enough ambiguity to suggest a sequel. Now that could be interesting ...
