After Judgment Day, This Was Pedestrian
Still interesting, and a plausible tale, but almost (but not quite), predictable!!
I'm convinced that 2 characters have the same names as a previous 2 characters in Judgment Day, but in seemingly diverse roles (all very confusing)! Whilst The character who was front and centre of this tale seemed pretty 1 dimensional.
This wasn't the best in the series sand seemed to be a drop in standard when compared to the previous book! And the conclusion seemed a bit rushed and ultimately dissatisfying.

I've been binge listening!
I really wish there were about 10 more in this series. I've been listening to one right after the other and some were "less good" than the others but this one...WOW! On the edge of my seat and didn't know how it would turn out. Ordering #8 in the series now.
PS Thank goodness Tim Campbell is back!!!

Do you know what your kids are doing?
This is an excellent series by Sheldon Siegel. When I first heard about it—Mike Daley, ex-priest, lawyer leaving his law firm, practicing with his ex-wife, etc, I thought there were too many “gimmicks” for this to be a book that could work well. Wow, was I wrong. This series has consistently good stories (usually murders with good courtroom drama), as well as nicely balanced background stories of the people involved—mainly Mike Daley and his one time wife, now law partner Rosie Fernandez and their kids.
This story begins with a situation that is very recognizable to parents. Their daughter Grace is 16, now dating, and they are realizing she has grown up faster than they had recognized. They are still trying to catch up with the fact that she is now a teen, doing normal teenaged activities.
Now her boyfriend is accused of committing a murder. He vehemently protests his innocence, and Grace has become his alibi—since they were together at the time the police have established for the murder.
Daley/Fernandez agree to take on the case to represent Bobby in court, but this is not easy—with a lot of unanswered questions, and knowing that eventually their own daughter might have to take the stand. As always, this is a tense, fast moving story, very engaging, and with the family issues front and center in this, also very human and appealing. It wasn’t hard to think how I would have felt as a parent with a child being involved in such a serious situation. This book, and the entire series are well worth listening. And very good narration by Tim Campbell, as well.
