This was an interesting suspense story. Joe Dillard wants to quit being a criminal defense lawyer. This book details his final cases. There are, of course, plot twists. I can’t say I was terribly surprised by anything but it was still a fun read. Joe has a birthday wish…just to have one innocent client. As the story unfolds, we meet some colorful characters. Erlene sounds like someone I probably wouldn’t be friends with, but she is definitely unpredictable and fun.
The author’s way of describing characters and the dialogue made me feel as if I was in the same space and knew these people.
I gave this book four out of five stars and would recommend it to anyone who enjoys reading attorney type suspense stories. I will be adding book #2 in the series to my books to read.
