I loved the premise of this story from the get go. The characters are well written and the reader is drawn into the story quickly. This could easily be a movie! I look forward the Farin Powell's next crime drama offering!
Judge McNeil is known to be a ruthless Judge in the courtroom when sentencing defendants, even more so after the death of his wife, giving them the maximum sentences for their crimes, despite many first offenders with what some may consider minor offenses, i.e., dealing pot, etc. The story opens with Judge McNeil being kidnapped by what turns out to be three former defendants who blame the Judge for their brutal sentences and had their lives change dramatically after being sentenced by the Judge. They all met in prison and devised a plan to "get even" with the Judge. As the story unfolds there are more twists and turns than Lombard Street in San Francisco and more characters are introduced into the plot. The Judge's daughter who disappeared after the death of his wife, the Judge's sister, and all of them hold family secrets.
As the plot unfolds you will find yourself riveted to the next page, chapter, and the ending. Definitely a profound criminal thriller mystery all rolled into one.
This is much more than a courtroom drama. Kidnapping, drugs, and yes, romance, all fit into this story.
The very beginning is a little confusing, but doesn't take long before everything comes together.
Farin Powell writes in a way that the reader feels they know the characters and can envision all that is happening in the story.
Extremely well written, had me hooked almost from the very beginning!
