Kali O'Brien understands client confidentiality, but something about Betty's urgent request has her a little spooked. Why did the woman go to such lengths to ensure secrecy?

Jacobs, Jonnie – 6th in series
Kensington Books, 2003, US Hardcover – ISBN: 1575668297

First Sentence: The blue Toyota turned off Highway 89 along the western shore of Lake Tahoe and into Ponderosa Pines Park.

Intent to Harm is the sixth book in the Kali O'Brien series. The listener experiences suspense, mystery, romance and more in this legal thriller, that is set outside the courtroom. Kalie is contacted by a mysterious client that wants to meet with her confidentiality. The plot thickens and spins in many different directions before we get to the end. There was just enough foreshadowing that I

This is a very suspenseful story and it's reasonably realistic. Predictably, there's some gratuitous romance that adds nothing to the story and could easily
have been omitted, but it seems authors feel compelled to include it. I like the main characters, although I think they could have been more fully developed
with some backstory.

Cindy Piller performs adequately. Nothing about her narration stands out, but she gets the job done.

NOTE: I received a free copy of this audiobook in exchange for thi

Complex and riveting overall. One quibble: Why would a transwoman in the SF Bay Area ask a fairly clueless cis-gendered friend about how to talk to dates about her pre-op status? Wouldn't she have lots of trans friends or community groups or support groups to talk to? I think Jacobs needs to update her understanding of the trans community in her hometown.

I honestly have zero recollection of how the plot plays out, but I do remember the synopsis's outlined circumstances. That being said, I don't have a whole lot to say about this book...but given that I gave it 5 stars, I guess I really enjoyed it and I would like to read it again sometime to give it a better review!

Really wanted to rate it a 3 and 1/2 star. Easy, breezy light mystery. I am enjoying the character of Kali O'Brien. Not her best in this series but still an interesting read.

Really good and exciting. Jonnie Jacobs always keeps me guessing until the end.

Lots of things happening in different places. Found it hard to read when I was only able to do a few pages at a time.

Interesting...good plot...a little slow at times. Enjoyed the Lake Tahoe setting.
Dec 18, 2011 Jordyn rated it liked it  ·  review of another edition
Intriguing overall, but an extremely unsatisfying and disappointing ending. Not worth the 300+ pages it took to find out a sub-par resolution in the last 10 pages of the book.
