I thoroughly enjoyed this book it was so compelling, I loved hearing about the racial tensions that where still happening in the eighties in the USA. I found the characters interesting and the story line absorbing. Jack is a like-able hero, realistic, flawed yet still doing his best to represent his client and battle the bigger co-operation. The narration is well down with each character having their own distinctive voice. Can not recommend this novel enough and look forward to listening to more John Grisham novels in the future

While I enjoyed this story it was as gripping or enthralling as past Piccolt novels. I enjoy more of the court thriller, so maybe that is why I didn't enjoy it as past Piccolt novels I have listened to. It was well narrated but I found the protagonist a little whiny and not likeable while I enjoyed the side stories of the healthy older daughter and the relationship between the two daughters. A good story but defernitly not my favorite

My new favorite series

I have listened to a few of the previous titles in Lescroart's Dismiss Hardy series and with each book they just get better and better. It is well Narrated, the characters each given their own unique, individual voice. The story is compelling, and leaves you both sympathetic to the defendant and questioning her motives. With plot twists and shocking revaltions, the story is not only told in the courtroom but tells the tale of a young lawyer trying to battle his conscience with trying to save a woman from the death sentence even though he is not sure of her innocence, and spending time with his new family, his wife having just given birth to a new baby. With a child's death in question it hits close to the Dismiss who has also lost a child which was the cause of the breakdown from his previous marriage. I am now a huge fan of this series and can't wait to buy the next one.

I really enjoyed this story. Well thought out and researched it gives you a great impression on daily Amish life and what it would be like growing up Amish. I found the story line engrossing and grew to love the modern day lawyer and the Amish defendant. The story is very compelling and full of twists with a shocking revelation. It was well Narrated and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

After the long wait I was not disappointed!!!

I am a huge fan of Charlaine Harris, I have read all her series including Sookie Stackhouse,the Shakespere series and the Grave series. In the The Midnight series Charlaine brings all the memorable characters from these series and sets them up with a few new characters and makes them neighbors. In the first book "Midnight Crossroads" we are introduced to new characters and reunited with old, in this prequel we gain more insight to the lives that have lead them to live in this small town where every one has a secret and nothing is ever quite what it seems. Combining paranormal and crime, this book tells an intriguing and entertaining story that leaves you waiting breathlessly for the next one in the serie
