I knew it! I didn't really. Well crafted.

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.

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!
Steve
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.
Joe O'c
Excellent; Continuing character: Brady Coyne; lawyer helps client/friend whose wife wants divorce, then gets further involved when the wife is murdered
Irving Milbury
I always love reading a Brady Coyne novel. Although Tapply is not the greatest writer, he's among the greatest.
