In all honesty, I had borrowed one of Stephen's books on Prime 3 days ago. Just 3 days ago. This review goes for all of his books, not just this one - as soon as I finished the borrowed book - I IMMEDIATELY purchased all his other books in this series starring David Brunnelle:
Beyond a Reasonable Doubt
Case Theory
Presumption of Innocence
Tribal Court
By Reason of Insanity
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!!

Stephen Penner is a remarkable author. I've read both of his David Brunelle mystery novels and love them. Stephen has a great imagination which he uses to create interesting plots. Lots of drama, enough twists and turns, sprinkled with rye wit and humor. He is an artist with dialog. However, what I appreciate is the authenticity of his courtroom scenes and his portrayal of criminal law. If you like paranormal mysteries, be sure to read Scottish Rite and its sequel. If you like science fiction, Mars Station Alpha is a fun read.

The trials and tribulations of the lead character tend to wear you down as you keep reading. Although the conflict of mixing the business with pleasure are quite evident and has already been dealt with in the previous book, it has been given more than its share of importance is what I feel. As soon as the situation is developing one is able to perceive what is likely to come up next which robs the book of the suspense.

I liked it. I would recommend it. The writing style is good. The main characters are likable. This is the second one I have read and I find the plots interesting and well developed. I have downloaded a third in the series and see myself as probably reading others in the series.
Not my greatest read, but definitely worth reading.

In the 2nd David Brunelle Thriller, David must leave the comfort of the Seattle prosecuting office to a Tribal Court were he is not 100% sure of the tribal rules.

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.

The ending could be better explained. Overall I'd say it was just ok. I'll still read the last book but only because I feel obligated.

I found the premise of the book intriguing; that you could have a tribal court administering what it seemed very eager to call 'tribal law' when there seemed no clear way to untangle the mess made by the US and the various agreement made with Indian tribes.
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.
