I wasn't disappointed. Immediately I liked the protagonist, Jane Larson the smart, witty, and sarcastic litigator who takes on a pro bono case as a favor to her friend, Francine, a legal assistant at her law firm. From the start this reader knew that wasn't a great idea. The story weaves through many twists and turns leading to betrayal, deceit, danger, and murder.
The complex story with it's great plot had the multidimensional characters and smart dialogue that I have come to expect in the Rothman-Hicks and Hicks novels. I loved New York City as the backdrop and pictured areas of the city as they were mentioned.
The characters are particularly well-written -- from the couple who run the local diner to the flamboyant news reporter -- each memorable in his or her own way. There are loathsome characters, but among the rest, the authors expertly tug readers back and forth so that it's never clear-cut who is trustworthy and who is not. Main character Jane Larson is the first to recognize her own flaws, but she's also not certain she's ready to fix them head-on. That, and her sometimes lack of good judgment when she knows better, makes her more realistic.
The authors did several interesting things in telling the story. First, the story is told from Jane's perspective and Jane directly addresses the readers. Second, in the beginning, Jane is telling the story in reflection and notes to herself and readers that she didn't recognize signs of things to come as they were presented to her. And finally, though it is first person point of view, readers only selectively know why Jane does some of the things she does. These things, plus the many forms of figurative language Jane uses to convey her thoughts, make the writing enjoyable.Where the writing could be improved is by a thorough editing; there are consistent comma and other punctuation errors, several agreement errors, and a few typos.Read more ›
