Publisher's Summary

Sabre Orin Brown's clients keep disappearing. With seemingly no connection between the cases, Sabre enlists the help of her southern PI friend, JP, and her best friend, Bob, to find each of them - before it's too late. In her race against the clock, Sabre must determine whether contemporary horrors are being buried in the shadow of dark traditions - or if it's something else at work. A conspiracy years in the making, secrets hidden for decades, and the twisted work of a mysterious society have all come together in the ultimate test of the strength of Sabre's conviction.

    "Wonderful legal thriller deserves better narration"

    This is not a typical legal thriller novel or series. This book takes on real world issues in a serious way. Narration is just average, and this serious novel deserves better. The protagonist is a lawyer and a child advocate.

    I recommend this series.

    "Legal Series Worthy of Following"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Advocate's Conviction to be better than the print version?

    The mediums are completely different. For me, I love to experience the print version, but as with most audiobooks the visuals come alive when presented in the spoken word.


    What other book might you compare The Advocate's Conviction to and why?

    John Grisham comes to mind, but the fascinating children's advocate element adds a level of interest sometimes lacking in many legal thrillers.


    What does Laurel Schroeder bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The narrator was a bit lacking regarding the presentation of differing characters. However because the writing is seamless, the listen was smooth and pleasing to follow.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Ms. Burrell’s experience as a children’s legal advocate shines in this heart-wrenching and at times terrifying journey of compelling attorney seeking answers about missing kids assigned to her care.


    Any additional comments?

    Exceptional writing is at the core of this legal thriller. I knew very little about the court system relating to child advocacy. The legal elements and dialogue between the characters was quite fascinating. I’ve read several of this author’s books and as always, she provided incomparable information in an entertaining manner. If you love an intriguing, ongoing legal read the Advocate Series by Teresa Burrell is one I highly recommend.

    "Advocates Conviction"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Advocate's Conviction to be better than the print version?

    I still prefer to read the book but the audio version is good if you are traveling by car or want to listen to something different from music.


    What other book might you compare The Advocate's Conviction to and why?

    I haven't read any other books like the Advocates Conviction to compare it to. W


    Which scene was your favorite?

    My favorite part was when they finally caught the judge and social worker.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Who knows what goes on behind court room doors??


    Any additional comments?

    I've read Ms. Burrell first two books. Now I have listened to the 3rd book and look forward to the others that follow. I met Ms. Burrell at the Victorville CA Barnes and Noble when she was promoting her first book The Advocate she signed my book and was very pleasant. We had a nice conversation so reading her books have meant more to me since we have actually met. Also the fact they take place in San Diego a place my husband I have spent a lot of time at, so I can relate to all the places she talks about and it makes it more intriguing to read for me. I feel she is a very good author and story teller!

    Any additional comments?

    Sabre and Bob are back in action. We have missing babies, teenage runaways, over zealous social workers, and hints of witchcraft. It's up to Sobs and Bob to represent their clients and figure out exactly what is happening. Their private investigator is there to help.
    Well written, fast paced, with characters so well defined that the reader feels like they are friends.
    The book has it's comic moments and yet still speaks to the damages drugs are doing to our children without being “preachy”.
    Another winner from this author. I enjoyed it, read it more than once to be honest and would highly recommend it.

    "Not Your Ordinary Lawyer Mystery"

    "The Advocate's Conviction" (2012) is Book 3 in Teresa Burrell's "Advocate" series. The series isn't a clichéd lawyer series with a hard boiled criminal lawyer whose cynicism is rivaled only by her drinking. Sabre Orin Brown is a court--appointed children's lawyer, and this series isn't "attorney-porn" (Attorney-porn: one case at a time; lots of time to strategize and plan; a great jury;,and everyone but the bad guy likes the lawyer.) Sabre has lots of cases at the same time; she gets stressed out and annoyed; she needs help and asks for it; her cases are always in front of Judges, some of whom are real jerks; and sometimes her clients hate her.

    Burrell has always been great at plots, and "The Advocate'a Conviction" is the best yet: it's tautly woven, keeps-you-guessing-til-the-end good, and surprisingly plausible. Burrell sometimes writes dialog like the attorney she is. Some of the characters use vocabulary that is much better than their education.

    Sabre represents children from two very different families torn apart by alcohol and drugs. Both run away after getting involved in the juvenile justice system. The contrast between the two families is stark. One family desperately wants to stay together - and the other? The situation was so horrible, it's surprising that the child wasn't removed earlier. Or, at least it seems surprising.

    Burrell is great at subtly engendering sympathy even for secondary/supporting characters. It's a neat way to make Sabre's world more complex and real.

    Burrell's been trying out different narrators. Laurel Schroeder seemed a little too clipped, fast and mechanical in the first part of the narration. About halfway through, she seemed to relax and understand the characters.

    [If this review helped, please press YES. Thanks!]

    "Good story"

    The story was good it went rather quickly, disappointed that there were few interactions with the primary characters. I missed the repertoire between Sabre, Bob and J. P. that the previous stories had, so it felt a little bit flat - lacking in emotions. I definitely plan on reading the next stories in the series, hope that Sabre has more emotion or more storylines with Bob and J. P.
    Narration was done well.

    "I'm Hooked!"

    I'm really enjoying this series. just finished this one and already ordered the next one in the series. Liked the performance on this one more the previous one. I confess I can sometimes guess what's coming but other times not. Like the theme if child advocacy. Hope the main character's dedication is the norm.

    "Book three a hit!!!"

    The story was great and kept me guessing. The characters were believable. The narrator was HORRIBLE! !! This book would have benefited from a more lively narrator who has a better range. Her voice was monotone I fell asleep a few times whil e listening. I'm looking forward to book four.

    "Great Story"

    I have listen to books 1,3 & 4. All are great it tells at the end of the book that Teresa is a lawyer who fights for children and her books are based on some of her cases. I don't know about being a lawyer but she is a great author. I want to read all her books.
