In this novel, Carolyn Sullivan, a probation officer and law student, has to help her brother Neil get out of trouble. An artsy type, Neil calls Carolyn to tell her that his girlfriend was found dead in a pool. After she finds out a family secret, she begins to have doubts about Neil's innocence. All the same, she is determined to help her brother.

This was a solid if unspectacular novel. The writing was competent and professional. There were no major plot holes in the novel. At the same time, th

Wow. This was a free Kindle read, and I didn't read it as much as skim. It is so poorly written that I kept marveling that it was ever published. The main character is a probation officer/law student/single mother dynamo, the kind of probation officer who isn't afraid to lock herself in a room with a violent killer to get the truth. Characters repeatedly comment on how she's the one to get the job done and no one else can do it.

The other characters have little personality and in the

It had been quite a while since I had read a book by Nancy Rosenberg. Unlike some reviewers I found Sullivan's Justice an enthralling read. The plot is complex with a lot of characters and subplots but I couldn't put it down. Burned the midnight oil to finish it. very satisfied when I finished it.

Read it. You will enjoy it.

Wow. This book is like watching a horrible movies that is so bad it's entertaining. There are stereotypical characters throughout, laugh-out-loud dialogue and scenes that you'll swear were stolen from the worst action movie you've ever seen.
I can only recommend this to someone who is tired of reading quality literature and doesn't want to think for a while.
In the second installment of the Carolyn Sullivan legal thriller series by Nancy Taylor Rosenberg, Sullivan's Justice, Carolyn Sullivan returned in another harrowing tale. This time, when her brother Neil was arrested for his dead girlfriend's body floating in the river, he became the prime suspect. For Ventura County probation officer Carolyn Sullivan, she would help her brother out by clearing his name. Lately, evidence proved it was liked to serial killer Raphael Moreno, one of the ruthless c ...more

Good book had some great parts. Lots of good characters, twists and turns that kept my interests. I like the fact this book was able to stand alone even though it's book #2 in a series. I did not feel like I was missing too much from not reading #1. Other than a bit of history of Brad and Carolyn. I do feel like it there were too many subplots to the story. I feel the story of Carolyn's father's death could have been a book of its own. (Now won't I be embarrassed if I found it is! :) ) I wanted ...more

After having waded through a very long saga previously I was ready for some light reading. Sullivan's Justice provided that. Carolyn Sullivan is a Ventura County, California, probation officer who works with hardened criminals and uses her knowledge of psychology to get them to open up to her. There are lot of twists and turns in this thriller and heavy body count. Carolyn's brother Neil becomes one of the murder suspects and family secrets are revealed. A good legal thriller. Not great but good ...more

Excellent read. Like many of the thrillers available, the book finishes with a rush. Rosenberg is one of my favorite authors.

It's a pretty good who-done-it. Towards the beginning there are some unnecessarily explicit sex scenes, which if she really needed that element, could have been handled differently without very much creativity needed. I really don't think they are that essential to the story, and consequently may not read anymore of her books because I don't need to have that as part of the stuff I read.

I liked this free download to my Kindle. It was enjoyable, although sometimes I had a hard time keeping track of the characters. The tension the probation officer felt during her interviews with the "bad guy" was palpable. With so much riding on that, but with so many other people, sometimes I was not sure of where it was going (or even of where I was).

Aug 12, 2010 Marcy rated it it was ok  ·  review of another edition
Carolyn Sullivan, a probation officer, single mom and wonder woman is the sister of a man suspected in a double homicide. She's also the only officer who can deal with an evil prisoner.Numerous sub-plots intertwine, though not very effectively. It was a chore to finish this one, poorly written as it was with characters about whom I cared nothing.

I made a mistake and listened to the abridged edition of the audio book. I do not like abridged editions in general and this was no different. The effect was choppy and some story lines seemed to disappear or just crop up for no reason. My impression is that this is a good book.

I was totally wrong with my guess of the "bad guy." This free Kindle download was, at times, complicated with all the characters. The main characters had a lot of dynfunctionality, most of it started when they were children. Other the few "flaws," I did enjoy it.

Carolyn Sullivan, a probation officer, interviews scary murderers (even though she's a GIRL!), tries to get her brother Neil off-the-hook for killing his ex, and figures out just who Melody Ash is. Something about a female assassin for hire with MS? Yawn.

Carolyn Sullivan is a probation officer in California. Her brother is a suspect in the death of his girl friend; and some similar murders. Nothing and no one is what they seem. Convoluted but interesting mystery

The plot got so involved, even the author couldn't keep up with it. Mediocre writing. Lots of action. Glitches in story line and too much explanation at the end to TRY and tie up the loose ends.
I really liked this book. Good plot.. Maybe a little unbelievable at the end but it was still good writing. Enjoyed it thoroughly... Will read more of this author eventually

I enjoyed reading this murder mystery and will read the next of the author's book. A little light on character development but entertaining.

I was a little disappointed after having read Interest of Justice, which was excellent. I was hoping for another book I 'couldn't put down'.

Another excellent book by Nancy Rosenberg. The plot moved and I enjoyed the character development...not what I expected for an ending.

This is the 2nd of the Carolyn Sullivan series. Another who done mystery! Interesting twist when family is involved.

It was an ok book to read for fun. A bit far-fetched and hard to follow at the end, but was still ok.
An undemanding thriller full of red herrings and plot twists, another good companion for a poorly duvet day.
