Book Review:

            Generally when I read a book for review I have recently chosen to review the book, however in this case I chose to review the book several months ago, so when it was time to review this book I totally could not remember what it was about, however having worked for the courts I had a pretty good idea it was about a murder or other major crime since Attorney Client privilege is about the confidentiality between and attorney and their client so that the client and accused that keeps the attorney from being compelled to testify against their client.  However in my case I worked for the court so I had the confidentiality clause, but I worked in family law and testified to what went on during my meetings with clients.  The only time I ever had an issue was when a client confessed to a crime to me and I couldn’t do anything about it.  I definitely couldn’t be an attorney… but my daughter will probably end up one… she loves to argue.

            Anyway, back to the book, the storyline was excellent.  I was kept guessing until the end of the book. I loved the story but occasionally got a little lost.  The story seemed to jump around a lot at the beginning without any seeming correlation.  The relevance of each component was disjointed until near the end.  Some people enjoy this style of writing, but it turned me off a little.  Not enough to not want to read anything else by this author.  I will definitely read more by her, but I will keep in mind that this is not my favorite style of writing.

I give this book 4 out of 5 clouds.
