From Publishers Weekly
Former trial lawyer Bell (No Legal Grounds) starts this engaging whodunit series kickoff by plunging successful young L.A. attorney Ty Buchanan into deep mourning for his fiancée, Jacqueline Dwyer. Apparently, wife-murderer Ernesto Bonilla shot himself on a highway overpass and his body landed on Dwyer's car, killing her. Buchanan, in the grip of intense grief, is further burdened when a scruffy man accosts him at the funeral and demands money in exchange for the truth: that Dwyer survived Bonilla's fall, only to be murdered. When the police dismiss this explanation, Buchanan risks his career and his life to get to the bottom of the mystery, crossing paths with a variety of powerful movers and shakers and ending up a murder suspect himself. Readers will enjoy Bell's talent for description and character development, even if the overall setup of a white-collar worker scouring the mean streets is familiar terrain. (Oct.)

Attorney Ty Buchanan is prepping a potentially career-making case involving repressed memories (he's defending a doctor who, after publicly criticizing a repressed-memory expert, is now being sued for defamation). When his fiancée is killed in what appears to be a freakish coincidence, Ty is shattered. And when he learns that Jacqueline might have been murdered, he risks his career and his life to find the truth. Bell, an attorney turned prolific novelist, has created in Buchanan an appealing and series-worthy protagonist (he's already working on the second Buchanan novel), and the tale equally balances action and drama, motion and emotion. Readers who pride themselves on figuring out the answers before an author reveals them are in for a surprise, too: Bell is very good at keeping secrets. Fans of thrillers with lawyers as their central charactersLescroart and Margolin, especiallywill welcome this new addition to their must-read lists.

Ok. I finished the book and he didn't get beat up any more. As a matter of fact he turned out to be a good hero. But I like my heros to be a little more un-clueless (sorry, couldn't think of any way to express it better than that). I am going to follow the series at least into the next book and we'll see if he get better. I hope so. I liked the book.
This first book in the Ty series ranked somewhere in the middle. I really wanted to like it, and there were engaging parts throughout. However, I kept looking and hoping for more legal drama and discourse. The focus was more on drama around his fiancee's death and his struggle to find out what he was going to do with his life. So, if you are looking for a legal thriller, this would not be my first recommendation. If you are looking for a thriller/drama, then this is a decent choice. This being said, I will probably try the next book in the series to see if it offers more as a legal thriller.
