Luke Garrison is a former district attorney of Santa Barbara County, California. He’s also a hero, having saved a group of stranded travelers from two desperadoes during the middle of a sandstorm. He’s now in private practice, having renounced prosecutorial duties to become a defense attorney after having prosecuted, and sent to the gas chamber, an innocent man. Nora, the widow of an old friend, and now state’s attorney in a rural northern California county, pleaded with Luke to accept the role...more

This is a book I would be quite happy to give 1 1/2 stars to. I will not be reading anymore books by this author. Nitpicky: the book was filled with commas splices and runons.

This book started out really slow for me. I agree with the one person who said that the first part of the book and the story that was told there was completely unnecessary and had nothing to do with the plot or character development later on. About 2/3rds of the way through the story picked up and I got a bit more interested. I enjoyed the ending...but it was sort of far-fetched. The last two of his books I've read have been disappointing so I might not read any more in the future of JF Freedman...more

Federal agents prepare to storm the Northern California hide-a-way of a drug lord. Little goes right and attorney Luke Garrison is hired as a special prosecutor to get to the bottom of the fiasco. This story starts out rather slowly but grows on you. I read it over several days and found, that when I wasn't reading it, I was wondering about what would happen next when I got back to it. This, to me, is the true mark of a good book.

Very good; lawyer is brought in by old law school friend to assist her in solving case of killing of drug lord during DEA raid; at last minute, surprises turn case upside down.

Another great book from Freedman. Luke is back in this one and escorts you thru a lot of twists and turns. Glad I started reading his books.

I enjoyed this book a lot, much on the line of some of the Nelson DeMille books.
