Meet Mike Daley. Ex-priest. Ex-public defender. And as of yesterday, ex-partner in one of San Francisco's most prominent law firms. Today he's out on his own, setting up practice on the wrong side of town. Then his best friend and former colleague is charged with a brutal double murder, and Daley is instantly catapulted into a high-profile investigation involving the prestigious law firm that just booted him.
As he prepares his case, Daley uncovers the firm's dirtiest secrets. It doesn't take long for him to discover that in this trial, ambition, friendship, greed, and long-standing grudges will play just as important a role as truth and justice.
Brilliantly paced, crackling with energy and suspense, Special Circumstances reminds us why we love to hate lawyers - but can't get enough of courtroom drama when it's done this well.

Such an original and enjoyable lead character
I really, really liked the Mike Daley lead character. A brilliant composite of former priest and partner in a leading law firm who goes it on his own in the world of criminal law He's no hero at all in the physical sense and worries about his parked car and his own well-being BUT he's very refreshing and believable. The narrator does a stunningly good job of his character and is really good throughout. The whole thing though was let down by some not inconsiderable weaknesses in the plot and I think the courtroom dialogue became a bit repetitious and implausible. Still I liked it so much overall that I'll take a chance on the next one!

Just a Really Good Listen
I'm so glad that I met Mike Daley and Rosie Fernandez in 'Special Circumstances' that I'm listening right now to the 2nd in this series, 'Incriminating Evidence'. Yep this is a legal thriller that's got plot and characters who pulled me into its whodunit delights.
I like it when authors obviously plan a plot, then execute it with usefully thought-out characters. Of course the denizens of these stories have purposes other than probing life's deepest secrets and feelings.. No, when this sort of book is at its best - it will shamelessly entertain.
Sheldon Siegel does that through the ensemble that Tim Campbell's created. I'm not sure which of them is luckiest to have found themselves in this partnership. Maybe the sum's greater than the whole of its parts? Regardless. Start this series with this novel. Do that, and I'm betting that, like me, you'll soon listen to 'Incriminating Evidence'."

Pleasantly surprised it was this good
I took a chance and ordered the book and much to my amazement was listening to a great legal thriller. Just finished his second book and ordered his third.
