This was the best audio book I've heard for some time. Don't be put off by the length of it, it's well worth it. The narration is fast paced and interesting and there's something utterly compulsive about the story. For the first time ever I listened 'through the night'.

I was looking forward to listening to this book; legal thrillers are particularly suitable for audiobooks and Richard North Patterson's books have a good reputation.
I was however disappointed. The book takes quite a long time to get going, and whilst the legal thriller aspects, as it were, are pretty good, they are not by any means spellbinding; the plot is a little obvious - if you cant guess who did it, you are not paying much attention - and the interplay between the main characters drags after a while. Compared, say, to the best of Scott Turow's or John Grisham's earlier books, this is second rate stuff. I wont be downloading any more of his books.
On the plus side, the narration is very good, and keeps you listening, particularly the courtroom exchanges.

I can usually figure out whodunit halfway through a book. This had me guessing up the climatic chapter - and then I kept saying, "no, no, no way". It's so nice to have a book catch me by surprise. It was well written and the characters were well drawn, enough so that I cared about what happened to them. If you like mysteries, and good trial dramas, add this one to your list.

I listen to Richard North Patterson every few months. Each time I do, I remember how much I like his stories and put another of his books into my wish list. This book is full of the interesting, intellectual dialog and plot twists that keeps the book interesting until the very end - even for a long book. I highly recommend this book.
