    " I'm a fan of Richard North Patterson. Not only are his books well-written, but they often incorporate ethical challenges faced by his characters. This particular book was beautifully written, had well-developed characters whom I cared about and who intrigued me, and had an elegant plot that came together in the end. "

    " A legal thriller that lives up to the genre designation. Renowed TV journalist Mary Capelli is charged with the murder of a famous novelist. She claims he attempted to rape her and that she shot him in self-defense. Defending her is Christopher Paget. They share a past secret, and a son. The build up to the trial is fascinating and Patterson's handling of his characters and the issue of evidence is compelling. I was stopped in a few places by sudden point-of-view shifts, but not enough to make me set the book aside. This is a page turner. "

    " A reasonably good read. I sometimes found the characters far fetched, and I'm not quite sure that I bought into the ending ...but entertaining and distracting which is what I look for in a "page turner". "

    " Great murder mystery. I love Patterson's hero, Christopher Paget. He's endearing, smart, likable. For mature readers given the specifics of the murder. "
