Description from Amazon

Spencer Wedgeworth, a rising young star in an elite law firm, fears that he is being drawn into an international crime ring headed by his superiors at the firm, including some rather flashy and violent women. Aided by a quirky paralegal planted to spy on him and with whom he falls madly in love, Spencer uncovers the real truth about the contraband that he has been spiriting around the globe, a truth far more terrible than anything he could have imagined.


Overall Feedback: This one takes the reader on a fast past thrill ride full of deception. It takes the first chapter or so to really get into the author’s style of writing but once you are there you are gone on Spencer’s adventure with him. This one is slated as a legal thriller but I would place it in the Comedic Legal Thriller group. Anytime an author can give me thrills and laughs, I am in.

Point of View: The story revolves around Spencer’s point of view.

Voice: Sometimes we find ourselves in situations that can define who we are.

Character Development: I felt that the author was a little light in the development area but the story does not suffer from it.

Plot: Humans ensure that this type of thing is possible. The author does a superb job in creating circumstances and deceit that would be possible and could be happening as you read this review.

Dialogue: Usually the hardest thing to capture in a novel is natural dialogue. This writer is able to utilize this downfall to create humor in a genre that does not get many laughs but should (as you will read).

Pacing: After getting into the first chapter or so, you become engrossed in the story and never look back.

Setting: Unique but quite believable. Helps push the story along in places.

Continuity: Normally after I read a legal thriller, I find myself asking questions afterwards because some parts did not make logical sense. This is not the case here. I found myself so engrossed in the story that Spencer’s adventures became my own.
