#16 in the Boston attorney Brady Coyne series.

There's one grievance Coyne is certain Fallon is not responsible for, however: the death of Fallon's wife, who was suing Fallon for divorce before she was murdered.

I don't get the appeal of this series. The pacing is okay, but the protagonist, Brady Coyne, is two-dimensional and the characters straight out of Central Casting.

This was my first time reading a William G. Tapply book and certainly won't be my last. I thoroughly enjoyed this book!!!!

Believable everyday characters. Mystery that wasn't able to figure out 3 chapters in. Figured it out about the same time the book revealed it - I had guessed incorrectly. Enjoyed following Mr. Coyne's steps while questioning his client and others.

Obviously not a good book since I didn't even remember finishing it. It was on my "currently reading" list, but when I went back to finish it, I realized that I had! Then I remembered how bad it was. Poor character development...the plot not fully developed...too many parts of the story that could've been told. It just wasn't good enough.

Tapply calls it "invisible writing" and that's just how I like it. You don't need big words and lots of intricate knowledge to write a good story, but to me a good book is one from which I've learned something useful.

After you read a lot of books by the same author you tend to know what clues to look for. I thought I had this one figured out but wasn't really sure until the end. Good mystery.

Love this series. Reminiscent of Robert Parker except Brady Coyne is a lawyer. Dry sense of humor, fast moving and a nice read when you need something not so deep and emotionally grabbing!

Tapply doesn't do anything fancy, but Brady Coyne is a good guy without being boring, meets interesting characters, and always fools me just enough with the solutions to his mysteries.

I always love reading a Brady Coyne novel. Although Tapply is not the greatest writer, he's among the greatest.
