In some places he lectures on things law more than necessary and gets a bit boring, but the next thing you know, the reader is back in the thick of things.
The plot, or should I say, several plots all combined, kept me turning pages right until the end.
It is extremely bothersome to me, however, to encounter so many grammatical errors, which the author or the publisher's editors certainly should have caught and corrected. There is no excuse for this.
Furthermore, he makes some statements that are completely incorrect, and all it would have taken is a little quick research to make them accurate. This grates on my nerves.
Two examples: He quotes the famous Jack Benny scene (it was on radio, I'm old enough to have heard it) where a robber says, "Your money or your life." The correct response is not "I'm thinking about it." as written, but, of course, after a long pause, "I'm thinking, I'm thinking."
Another silly error is when the protagonist is a passenger in a commercial flight that is landing, he notices the flaps on the wing coming down to slow the speed. He says those are ailerons. No they are not. They are flaps. The ailerons on each wing is what makes the plane bank left or right as the yoke is turned.
There are others, but I have to assume that everything he writes about the law is more accurate. I have to say, I learned a lot about all the shenanigans that are pulled by lawyers in settling a case.
Anyway, it is worth reading.
"clueless" about his cases and his associates. I will read other Sharp mysteries.
This ebook had a number of grammatical and word errors, and should have been better edited..
