They are all-consuming. This one I found particularly remarkable. A legal thriller of the highest order. As always, great character development, but the plotting of this one - weaving a murder, a trial, celebrity scandal, and personal conflict into a frenzy - was remarkable. Unlike most other "series" authors, Patterson weaves together a world where the The problem I have with Richard North Patterson's novels is that once I start one, I seem to be completely unable to do anything but finish it.
Unlike most other "series" authors, Patterson weaves together a world where the secondary characters in one novel become the main characters in another. This speaks to how well-developed these characters are in his head while he's writing, and makes for a very rich experience as you read more and more of his novels.
But if I go on to the next one I'll never get anything I need to do done View 2 comments. Mar 24, Connie rated it did not like it.

This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. It took me forever to finish this book, I didn't give one little bit of crap about any of the characters. I forced myself to finish it because of the other good reviews and the promise of a great twist at the end.

Well, there was a bit of a twist but I had already figured out Carlo was not Paget's son and who the hell knows if Mary ever told the truth about what happened in that room. She was such a bitchy flake. The overprotecting of Carlo was beyond ridiculous! He was 15 not 8. I really found t It took me forever to finish this book, I didn't give one little bit of crap about any of the characters.
I really found that the most annoying and yet most consistent part of this story. And Terrie hooking up with Paget?! View all 3 comments. Aug 12, Idamaro rated it it was amazing Shelves: crime-thriller , legal-thriller , icy-cold-heroines. Excellent read. The 5 stars are for the legal proceedings and intensity of the trial, beautifully written. But I feel that the author finished the story poorly and wrapped things up tidily but rather cliched. You have one of the most fascinating and complicated female characters - Mary Carelli - both refreshing and compelling to discover. And then there is little-miss-perfect-do-gooder -Terri -that honestly is exhausting to follow throughout the story; I had to skip some of her scene at the end Excellent read.
And then there is little-miss-perfect-do-gooder -Terri -that honestly is exhausting to follow throughout the story; I had to skip some of her scene at the end that were painfully cringe worthy. Her subsequent relationship with the main character makes me want to stop reading the next book in the series..

Apr 10, Leslie rated it liked it. This is a good legal case study, well-written and with good characters. I really want to say I enjoyed the book, but it became ponderous. I don't think I'll run out and buy the next one, either. A good author, a decent book, but perhaps too overdone. Mar 13, Don rated it it was amazing. Mary, the mother of Christopher Paget's son shows up after a 7 year absence, asking him to defend her against a murder charge.
Christopher has raised Carlo on his own and only reluctantly takes the case. Patterson has a great talent for creating complex and intriguing characters with very intelligent, compelling story lines. Hig Mary, the mother of Christopher Paget's son shows up after a 7 year absence, asking him to defend her against a murder charge. Highly Recommended. View 1 comment.

Almost kept my attention from beginning to end, although I did think it felt as if scenes were being repeated at times making me feel like skimming. Strong characters on all sides. May 29, Jean-marcel rated it it was ok Shelves: from-work. This was a bit of a windy affair, I thought, although there were some unsettling accounts of rape and female degradation.
Degree of guilt
No need to describe the plot as the synopsis tells you the facts you need to know about this page monster that ambles back and forth between legal and domestic drama. The legal stuff is all right, though extremely repetitive, and would probably go over well in a movie. I know plenty of people love courtroom drama and there is some meat here, though it takes about page This was a bit of a windy affair, I thought, although there were some unsettling accounts of rape and female degradation.
I know plenty of people love courtroom drama and there is some meat here, though it takes about pages to get there and one often gets the feeling proceedings are just wandering around in circles. I also can't say it's exactly wrapped up in a satisfactory manner. If so, why didn't she find them?
It would have been better, I think, if the rather sympathetic judge had suspected that Christopher had the tapes in question, but she never suggests this to be the case. While by the end I had some empathy for Mary Carelli, the truth certainly doesn't win out in the case as the testimony built in her defense was flimsy indeed, and I can imagine the non-resolution frustrating many. IN order to be ok with that one has to care rather deeply about these characters, and I'm afraid I just didn't.
Much of it, particularly the stuff involving Chris, Carlo and Mary, just comes off as pages and pages of angst and recrimination.
As someone who has never really lived in a "stable" family, I found that while it all sort of resonated with me, it was mostly in a "yeah yeah, been there, done that, let's move on" kind of way. The thing is that the book subscribes to this modern notion of children needing to be cushioned and protected until the day they go to college or something, when the switch is metaphorically turned and they suddenly become "adults".
