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 For my money, Grisham has grown stale over the past five years while Gimenez has gone from strength to strength...this is one of the best legal thrillers since Scott Turow's Presumed Innocent Daily Mail

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.

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.

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.

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.

This is a good legal story that keeps you guessing. Could move a bit faster through the plot but is well written. I like his dialogue style.

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.

Book seems to have been ghosted by James Carville after getting a traffic ticket in Galveston. If one can ignore the obvious Demo-Lib-Anti-Texas bent, the story itself is readable.
