More About the Author
Stephen began his legal career as a criminal defense attorney, appearing in federal, state, and municipal courts throughout the State of Washington. After several years of defense work, Stephen 'switched sides' and became a prosecutor. He has been practicing criminal law for over 20 years, working his way up from misdemeanor offenses, to felonies, and finally to homicides. He has tried nearly 100 cases and now supervises other prosecutors. In addition, he uses his extensive experience to teach trial advocacy to Seattle law students.
As an author, Stephen pens the David Brunelle legal thriller series, featuring Assistant D.A. David Brunelle and a recurring cast of cops, defense attorneys, and forensic experts. He also writes the Maggie Devereaux paranormal mysteries, recounting the exploits of an American graduate student in the magical Highlands of Scotland.
In his spare time, Stephen enjoys painting, drawing, and spending time with his family. For more information, visit his website www.stephenpenner.com

EVERY book a winner.
EVERY book fabulously written.
EVERY book will keep you reading.
EVERY Book is going to stay in my Kindle library because great books are meant to be kept and not discarded.
I just raved about him to my sister yesterday - she started and finished one book already and she could not believe how great a read it was either. She is ready for the next book - the sooner the better she said.
Each story is so good. I love the main characters already. I can speak of them as if they are my best friends or friends that I just met but feel like I have known them forever.
I am going to put this same review on every one of his books that I have read, so everyone who loves a well-written story with crime and police and court proceedings knows how truly great these books are!!
The crimes are original as is the storylines. All the characters are believable. You hate the ones you are supposed to and love the ones you should.
Open your kindle to Stephen Penner - YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED!!
Not my greatest read, but definitely worth reading.
A homeless man is murdered in Seattle, and the killer is caught within blocks of the crime. Its discovered that both the man and the killer belong to a Native American tribe and jurisdiction is in the tribal court. While tryng to become acknowledgeable of the rules of the tribal court, people are being murdered around David. They are claiming an ancient custom of "blood revenge." Add the bodies piling up and the defense attorney Talon who keeps reminding David she is going to kick his ass, the story line will keep your interest.
Then bring David's girlfriend Dr. Kat Anderson, medical examiner from Seattle into the story and it really becomes a page turner.
I am totally hooked on Stephen Penner's style of writing, the characters and story lines.
That any kind of court where blind justice was involved could be so skewed when it came to trying to decide what was customary tribal law of that tribe nearly 200 years before the crime seemed inconsistent with the rule that ignorance of the law is no excuse when it comes to a serious breach of the criminal law.
The writer, for whose legal skills I have a great deal of respect, had to have recourse to a set of changing almost conspiratorial facts and actors that took the book, for me anyway, from a 5 to a 3.
The writing is fast paced and , largely, logical, but the fascination of the lawyer with the beautiful tall almost omniscient Indian prosecutor became a bit repetitive.
