The story is interesting, with a few plot twists.
As a lawyer, now judge I found the courtroom stuff pretty realistic. As a graduate of the Minnesota Law school (long ago), I hope that the pervasive corruption is not accurate but the story is well done in any event.
I especially liked the author's quick transitions, very well handled.
Unlike the first book, there is much more to the story development and less to the development of the lead characters. That is understandable.. Not a criticism at all. I really liked both the book and the development of the author.
I was a bit confused as it appeared there were originally 2 murderers and wasn't quite certain what Carstens was thinking as he didn't flesh this part of the novel out. A pro was hired to do a killing, yet a woman testifies it was a suicide and she has proof. So what really happened with the professional hit? Carstens always manages to flesh out his main characters, add new ones with interesting roles, I just wish he wouldn't add so many that are peripheral to the main storyline. This would help to keep the reader on point and remove the confusion caused in my earlier statement regarding who actually killed who.
Marc is making quite a name for himself as a criminal lawyer and the cases are always convoluted but interesting. Carstens is not the best writer but he has interesting stories and this one leaves the reader with a moral dilemma regarding the jury's findings and the guilt of the convicted. Something to ponder. Since I enjoy legal thrillers I will continue to read Carstens and hope his writing improves with each new novel.
Towards the end, there seemed to be a few proofreading/editing mistakes. Gender pronouns were mixed up, punctuation was lost at least one point, and even characters were mixed up on one or two occasions. I was following what and who very carefully - I do some proofreading and editing, so this sort of stuff jumps out at me. It was a good read anyway, and I highly recommend it.
