Brigham's first case is a speeding trial. His second is a murder. His client, Amanda Pierce, shot and killed the man who molested and murdered her daughter. Brigham's ethically challenged boss gets the case on his public defender contract and hands it off to Brigham. Would any judge allow a brand new lawyer to represent a defendant in a death penalty case? Of course not. Nor should any virgin lawyer be stupid enough to take on a murder charge, much less one that carries the death penalty. While this novel purports to be based on a true story, it is a truly shocking story if Utah actually allowed a lawyer with no jury trial experience to handle a death penalty trial all by himself.
In any event, Brigham moves forward with the case and is shocked to learn that the judicial system favors the prosecution. Apparently Brigham wasn't paying attention when he interned in the public defender's office. His approach to the trial is baffling. For instance, he decides not to question prospective jurors because "if you want an unpredictable verdict, you need an unpredictable jury." It doesn't occur to Brigham that if you want to win, you need a favorable jury. Brigham's choice is absurd given that the jurors are being questioned (and the jury shaped) by the prosecutor. Most of Brigham's trial preparation consists of reading books about how to defend a client.Read more ›
I purchased this book because it was on sale. I certainly can't recommend it at full price.
The owner of the firm appears to be a mobbed-up Russian emigre with a smallish heart of gold. The author develops, barely, the possibility of trouble between the firm owner and the mob so you are not surprised when one day they find out the law firm owner [you figure out the rest] and yet our hero with help from the now-girlfriend carries on. The author does the romantic (okay, sex) scenes with all the delicacy and delicious nuances of Tom Clancy, which is to say not very well.
John Grisham hit the jackpot with "The Firm" and two decades of Gresham wannabes (including maybe JG himself) are trying to duplicate that success. Author Victor Methos comes up short. If you can get a Methos novel at a Kindle-specials price say $2, it's a worthwhile read. Otherwise ... this is not a book I'm likely to read again and again.
