I'm on a roll, with just one more book left in the seven-book series featuring former spouses Mike Daley and Rosie Fernandez, who have continued to work together in their law firm. In this one, the 6th, the couple are called in for a Hail Mary attempt to get a stay of execution for a former lawyer who was convicted of murdering three people in Chinatown some 10 years ago.

Because he earned his stripes successfully defending shady characters and mobsters, he's never been a candidate for the San F
I really enjoy Siegel because his legal novels ring true. There's no Grisham chase scenes or Perry Mason moments.
First Sentence: The oldest man on death row is eyeing me from his wheelchair.

Attorney Mike Daley and Rosie, in spite of a promise to his ex-wife and law partner, takes on a death-row appeals case. Former powerhouse-attorney Nate Fineman, is due to die in 8 days. He was convicted of killing three men in a Chinatown restaurant shooting, but claims he is innocent and the gun was planted by the police. Now Mike has not only to prove Nate’s innocence, but find identify the killer in order to prevent

I have become hopelessly fan.

Another great legal thriller. This is my second Sheldon Siegel book. I love the colorful characters, the complications, the honesty, and the overall facetious attitude of Dailey. As as ex seminarian who studied law and whose dad was a construction worker and a bartender, I understand identify with the work ethic, character, self doubt, and dogged determination of Dailey and Fernandez. I'm going to do it again.
It's ok

I've read a few books in this series. The Confession is the best. This one is okay, but there was just too much of Mike's internal dialogue to read through. I felt like I was sitting through an episode of House of Cards. The mystery was so-so, but for .99 you can't ask for too much.

Superb reading

I'm getting addicted to Sheldon Siegel books. So far this is the third book. I absolutely recommend books by this author. The suspense of this story was like a cliffhanger, wondering how counselor Daley wins.
Good Reading

Enjoyed the easy reading. Somewhat predictable but entertaining. Repeat of characters gets old but needed if others have not read first books. I like the flow of the chapters.
This is maybe the fifth or sixth book in a series about an ex-husband and wife who practice criminal law together. I started reading the series about 5 years ago when I was taking a trip to San Francisco and wanted to read a book that took place in that city. I've read each of the books in the series, and haven't been disappointed with any of them. They're pretty easy reading, and good filler when you just want to read something that you don't have to think too much about. The characters are lik ...more
Daley and Fernandez are on a dead line to have an execution stayed 8 days before its scheduled to happen. All the twist and turns are riveting. I will not give you anymore to spoil it, but i will say it was a page turner.

Fairly predictable but still a great read. I really enjoy the Mike Daley character and especially how Siegel shows us what Daley is thinking as opposed to what he's actually saying.

I love this series -- the characters, Mike and Rosie, are very believable, even though the situations they find themselves in, and the sleuthing done by Mike, is not!
Another lawyer-turned-writer book; good read. I'd probably read one more by this author, but then I'd guess it would turn formulaic...we'll have to see!
Intriging plot and great characters set in always interesting San Francisco.
Great story line. Hard to put down.
