Book Description

"Scott – it's Rebecca. I need you."

His wife left him for a younger man. He blames himself. He could not give her what she had needed, so another man had. Now, two years later, she needs what only he can give her: a defense to a murder charge.

In this sequel to The Color of Law, A. Scott Fenney must defend his ex-wife, Rebecca, who is accused of murdering the man she left him for. Trey Rawlins, a rising star on the pro golf tour, is found dead in his $4 million Galveston beach house with a butcher knife in his chest—and Rebecca's fingerprints are found on the murder weapon. The police refuse to investigate other suspects, so Scott must. The case takes Scott to Galveston, and the investigation takes him behind the scenes of the image-conscious, corporate-sponsored pro golf tour—into a world of million-dollar purses and endorsement deals, agents and caddies, groupies and WAGs. Scott digs deep into Trey Rawlins and discovers a lifestyle that cost him his life—and that now threatens Scott's.

Editorial reviews:

"Some critics are calling the Texas-based lawyer Mark Gimenez 'the next Grisham'—but I think that's far less than fair. This, his fifth novel and the second featuring attorney A. Scott Fenney, shows he's now better than the one-time master of the American courtroom drama. For my money, Grisham has grown stale over the past five years while Gimenez has gone from strength to strength. If you doubt me, sample this cracking thriller which sees Fenney defend his former wife against the allegation that she killed the man she left him for, millionaire golf professional Trey Rawlins. . . . This is one of the best legal thrillers since Scott Turow's Presumed Innocent in 1987 . . . Superb."
– Daily Mail (UK)

"Brilliant writing, masterful plot and all the thrill of the courtroom in one. Grisham, step aside."
– City AM (UK)

"Gimenez has set his bloody murder trial Accused against the background of a failed marriage, single-parenting issues and male infidelity. . . . This mix of family values, sex, sleaze and intrigue holds together in a gripping read with unexpected twists that ranks with anything Grisham has done in years."
– The Times (UK)

"Gimenez writes smart vernacular dialogue, hip and street-wise, with a nice line in social commentary, and his plotting leaves the over-rated John Grisham in his rear-vision mirror."
–The Australian

"Courtroom drama at its finest. . . . Great ending, too."
– Perth Now (Australia)

"A great read. . . . Gimenez is a thriller writer of quality."
– Oamuru Mail (New Zealand)

"You’ll be handcuffed and imprisoned from the first page."
– Joburg.co.za (South Africa)

"If you enjoy suspense and a fast-paced courtroom drama, this one's for you."
– Foschini Club Magazine (South Africa)

"Accused is an engaging and character-led legal thriller. Gimenez's dialogue and prose are as fluid and natural as we've come to expect, and the pacing of the plot will keep pulling you along. When we're finally brought into the court-room, the author actually makes it gripping and tense, even though we've been following Scott and his team's investigation every step of the way. Accused, therefore, offers the reader everything they could want from a thriller, and is a very satisfying read."
– Civilian–Reader (UK)

"Gimenez's plots are driven by surprises and twists, while the stakes are much higher than what one can possibly imagine at the beginning of the book. What's more, the Texan lawyer, A Scott Fenney, grips our interest with his mind games, and we are compelled to turn one page after another to discover where the story is headed. Gimenez is in good form in Accused. He is equally good in the companion book, The Color of Law. Unputdownable for those who love the genre."
– The Times of India

5.0 out of 5 stars Trying a man's judgement December 2, 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Mark Gimenez, who knows Texas, takes his plotting and local color skills to the Gulf Coast for this legal thriller, which is in the Scott Turow tradition. Million-dollar Dallas attorney A. (for Atticus) Scott Fenney leaves Highland Park for Galveston to defend his ex-wife on a murder charge. The story is as good as the premise, and it goes down to the last sentence. Did Rebecca Fenney kill pro golfer Trey Rollins, the man she left her husband for? Gimenez, himself a BOI (Born on the Island), introduces readers to Galveston--after Hurricane Ike. The city becomes one of Gimenez's characters but doesn't get in the way of the compelling mystery, which climaxes with a twisting, turning murder trial, which is tastier than the shrimp at Gaido's.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gimenez does it again September 12, 2010
By Frogers
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a sequel to The Color of Law, and we find it amazing that this writer is not more widely known and that he is not widely published in the U.S. We read every book of Mark Gimenez that we can get our hands on, and thoroughly enjoy each one. Thank goodness that Amazon can give access to such writers.

Your ex-wife calls out to you for help because you're a lawyer and she needs one. You come because you believe you're to blame for her leaving in the first place. Only then, as the people that were once a family relate again do the flaws (and yes there are many) begin to replace the simple guilt for having driven her away. The trial is not at the center of this murder story, except maybe it is. It really depends on where you are in your relationships.

It's a fascinating, troubling book that deals with the three relationships that may shipwreck our lives -- spouses, parents and children. And it does it well in unexpected ways.

3.0 out of 5 stars False testimony April 21, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I had just finished reading The Color of the Law so I was excited to read Accused. Not near as good as the first book in the series. The ending was too rushed as if the author just wanted to finish the book.

Mark Gimenez's easy writing style keeps the pages turning in this legal whodunit. Social comment is offered with humorous insight. His characters are entirely plausible and his plot ingenious.
