Summary

For Sabre Orin Brown, life is good; she has it all...or would have, if only she could solve the mysterious disappearance of her brother. The search for her brother and her career as a juvenile court attorney collide when she defends a nine-year-old whose father will go to any length to obtain custody.
Sabre finds herself immersed in a case with too many unanswered questions. Her quest for the truth takes her coast to coast and five years into the past. Confronted with mysterious clues and strange occurrences, Sabre is threatened by someone wanting to make her suffer the unbearable anguish of losing everything--including her life.
As Sabre's passion to find the answers intensifies, she discovers a twisted history of desperation, deceit, and revenge. And she discovers how obscure and treacherous the truth can be.
The Advocate, a legal suspense murder mystery, is the first book in The Advocate Series. Three characters continue throughout the series, Sabre Orin Brown, defense attorney, her investigator, JP Torn, and her colleague, Bob Clark. The Advocate is followed by The Advocate's Betrayal, The Advocate's Conviction, The Advocate's Dilemma, and The Advocate's Ex Parte.

Action packed!!!!

Is there anything you would change about this book?

A little less drama

Would you recommend The Advocate (The Advocate Series) to your friends? Why or why not?

Yes I have already

Any additional comments?

Thanks to Teresa for the audiobook For a listen to review I like to try different things and a law thriller is something I've not tried The book seems to be aimed at women primarily, and from the other reviews I've read it seems to hit all their buttons.As for meA bit too much happening in this one bookI felt like I'd just watched an entire season of 24.The main characters history is wheeled out in this first instalment, which i sort of expected to be drawn out throughout the series. This book has murder, kidnap, drugs, mobsters, arson, missing persons and moreSo you won't be bored. Although you may feel overwhelmed.I will be getting my mrs to listen to it too to see what she thinks of it. And I'll edit later if I can, to add her review.If you like TV shows like criminal intent or body of prof and law and order then I'd say you will love this.I'm sure the series will grow, and hope the next one takes the foot off the peddle a little and let the characters slowly develop, instead of giving us too much background too soon.

Great Legal Mystery, Great Narration

I loved how the author, Teresa Burrell, wove this mystery. She combined so much action into the story, lots of travel, a few great characters, kidnapping, a stalker, the mob, a fire, subtle humor, and a wonderful ending in one. The imagery was well done too! Without giving away spoilers, I loved the ending. Summer Rona added to this book with her emotions. I had read this book several years ago and enjoyed it then, and enjoyed the audiobook even more now. I requested this review copy audiobook and have voluntarily written this review.

Great story !

If you could sum up The Advocate in three words, what would they be?

Exciting, emotional, interesting

Who was your favorite character and why?

Saber, she just keeps going and does what is right.

What about Summer Rona’s performance did you like?

Her voice was soothing.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

If time allowed I could have listened to the entire book in one sitting.

Any additional comments?

I began the book with a sinking feeling, I did not want to listen to a sad, twisted tale of child abuse. I quickly realized that this would not be a disgusting story, playing on horror for the sake of horror but a well written story of genuine friendship, a blend of mystery, humor, and sadness to produce a story that kept me interested and did not end as I suspected.
