    Tre stelle abbondanti per questo thriller giudiziario della serie dell avvocato Paul Madriani, con un paio di bei colpi di scena e un finale pirotecnico Le stelle possono salire a quattro se siete amanti del genere.

    Ahhh, another series I m reading and I m not even counting them any Just going through them one by one and enjoying every one Well, almost every one After discovering Steve Martini s character, lawyer Paul Madriani, I was in heaven Madriani is now a widower wife died between 4 and 5 with a seven year old daughter he adores He s not a particularly top notch or highfalutin attorney but he s very clever, has morals and there s a line he won t cross for anyone This is the first book in the series th [...]

    Slow to get going, long wait til surprise ending fair dramaThis is our third Martini er, the author s books that is We enjoyed Simeon Chamber his first outing , but felt the List was too dry and set too sluggish a pace for our taste We tried the Attorney to see if the defense attorney Paul Madriani series, which now has some half dozen entries, might be entertaining Alas, a rather mundane plot gets us off to a lackluster start Jonah Hale s granddaughter Amanda, of whom he has legal custody, is [...]

    Martini pens a very suspensful legal thriller This book had me riveted to the pages.The case A CA state lottery winner has gained custody of his granddaughter when the childs mother, his daughter, is imprisoned on drug smuggling charges Upon her release, she elicits the aid of a vigilante group called Vanishing Victims in order to steal the child back Because it is a kidnapping by a parent, the state offers no aid in getting the child returned When the head of the organization is found dead, all [...]

    Another Martini book, another great read Had a hard time putting this one down Started it one day, finished it the next, including staying up until 2 00 or so reading I had made the mistake of napping earlier in the evening and wasn t too sleepy I sure was today at work though I knew who the killer was right from the get go, but it doesn t really matter because it s still fun to see how it all plays out and how the killer manipulates things Hopefully the library will have some Martini books wai [...]

    I enjoy the Paul Madriani mysteries This time a murder is connected to a vigilante who abducts children from their supposedly abusive guardian parent and hides them, usually in Mexico The grandparents have legal custody because their daughter mother has a drug addiction problem It all gets mixed up with Mexican drug cartel operatives.

  11. Stephanie

    For some reason, I am a sucker for the protagonist in this Paul Madriani I sort of wondered where this one was going, but followed it as it went and enjoyed the trip to San Diego in my mindI d recommend this one.

  12. Glenda

    The clue to who done it came early in the story That being said, I think the story was still full of action and well written, and, if you missed the early clue you may have been surprised by who done it.

  13. Jennifer Junker

    This is the fourth book about the lawyer Madriani that I ve read and I just love how real the characters seem They have very human attitudes and problems and feelings The courtroom scenes seem extremely realistic, and the stories keep me up late

  14. Tom

    Recently finished this title I ve enjoyed other Martini novels before and enjoyed this as well It was not my favorite of the series but still I m glad I took time for this book.

  15. Rene Ponce

    This book is my first introduction to the writing of Mr Steve Martini Enjoyable and persistent, this book adds credibility to the experience the writer has in the legal profession At first the novel takes some time to build, but tackles some intense and vulnerable issues tremendously well, which are all central to the building plot Nice surprise ending I would recommend this book to anyone looking for an easy yet engaging read.

  16. Emily Higgins
