Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

*Starred Review* Parker Stern’s promising career as a litigator at Macklin & Cherry ends abruptly when he’s stricken with paralyzing stage fright in courtrooms after the suicide of his mentor, Harmon Cherry. When the firm subsequently breaks up, Stern’s former partners are supportive: Manfred Mason, now associate dean at a law school, hires him as an adjunct professor, and occasional bedmate Deanna Poulos, now a coffee-shop operator, persuades him to represent another ex-colleague, Rich Baxter. When Baxter, accused of embezzling from his longtime client, the cultish Church of the Sanctified Assembly, is found hanged in his jail cell, Stern begins to believe the outlandish charges that Baxter has made against the church. Hired by Baxter’s father to fight the church over his son’s estate, Stern finds himself at risk, along with his student, Lovely Diamond, who is helping him with the investigation and with whom he becomes romantically involved. Rotstein’s debut is a tautly constructed, fast-moving narrative with an appealing protagonist—smart, articulate, and crafty—who nevertheless literally faints from fright in front of a judge. This promises to be a compelling series for legal-thriller fans. Get in at the start. --Michele Leber

Review

“This is a terrific book. Just terrific. Robert Rotstein has come up with a fresh take on the legal thriller and he does a first-rate job. Parker Stern is a complex and well-developed protagonist and the story is beautifully structured for maximum intrigue and suspense.”
—SUE GRAFTON, #1 New York Times–bestselling author
 
“An intelligent, fast-paced, exciting thriller with an intricate plot that kept me on the edge of my seat. The ending had my heart pounding. I stayed up late, finished it in two sittings, and wished there had been more.”
—ROBERT DUGONI, New York Times–bestselling author of Murder One     
 
"A tautly constructed, fast-moving narrative with an appealing protagonist. . . . This promises to be a compelling series for legal-thriller fans. Get in at the start."
BOOKLIST, starred review

“Be prepared to put everything down and read through the night. Rotstein is a master of lightning-fast plot shifts and startling characterizations. Sexy, riveting, and keenly crafted, Corrupt Practices is well worth the insomnia.”
—TERRI CHENEY, New York Times–bestselling author of Manic
 
Corrupt Practices gives you all the pleasures of a legal thriller . . . but it is also just a beautiful novel. The characters are weird, interesting, flawed, and psychologically complex, and the portrayal of various Los Angeles subcultures . . . is authoritative and insightful. [It’s] both a wild ride and a profoundly satisfying literary experience.”
—MATTHEW SHARPE, author of Jamestown
 
“An intriguing, deftly paced legal thriller. The scenes ring with authenticity and the story peels back layer after layer of surprises.”
—PAUL GOLDSTEIN, author of Havana Requiem
 
“The kind of rich and entertaining read that will please a wide range of legal thriller fans. . . . It is that rare sort of book—one that leaves you feeling entertained and a better person for having read it.”
—LES STANDIFORD, author of Bringing Adam Home

"A steady stream of intriguing revelations delivered in a lively, precise style will keep readers turning the pages."
—PUBLISHERS WEEKLY
