It's the first novel I've read that describes the XXY condition I have though Ben in the book has much more severe symptoms and other problems than I had, I recognized a lot of my tribulations that he also shared. It was sort of like I was reading about me.
I highly recommend it.
Paige soon finds herself excoriated by the local media, under investigation by the State Bar Association, and on the receiving end of threats. Courthouse Cowboys by P. A. Moore is a taut drama that mixes courtroom scenes with backroom machinations that will thrill you at the same time they turn your stomach. Determined to see justice done, Paige and Jack face down the judges, attorneys and cops who have hijacked justice for their own selfish aims.
This is a book written with authority and skill that will make you wonder how much justice there really is in the justice system.
The main plot (the murder trial) was great. I loved getting in Paige's head about the investigation, trial prep, etc. If that was all this book was, I would have absolutely loved it. However, that isn't all there is.
In what I assume is an attempt to convince the reader that Paige is exhausted, the author included references to other cases going on. That would be fine, except they never go anywhere. The book will say "and then I went to visit California's death row," but that's it. Nothing on that case, no background, no information. I never could figure out what was going on with the case that led to the investigation by the State Bar. Apparently it was referenced early on in the book, but by the time it came back up, I'd forgotten everything about it.
As other reviewers have said, a good editor would solve a lot of these problems.
Another thing that bothered me, although that is personal, is somewhat excessive religion. At first it was not particularly annoying, but as I progressed through the book it became heavier and heavier handed. I tried to ignore it but at times it became just a bit too much. Other than those two small points, this was well worth reading.
May all defendants in need find a lawyer truly dedicated to them.
Now for my positive thoughts: not many typos, not many wrong words, characters were all believable, easy to picture the events, and overall well written.
