This book was good, but almost too intense. One night when I was reading it I told Andrew it was getting too scary and I was afraid I was going to have nightmares.
I heard about this author from friends who know that this book is the sequel to "Majestic Descending" and is currently in production to become one of two Bruce Willis movies, the first coming out in July 2011, so I had to read it. I was up all night reading Majestic, then within five minutes, I literally put on my shoes to drive to the book store to purchase "Dead Docket". I finished it the next day. That's how good these two books are. I really cannot remember being so happy about time spent wi ...more

I enjoyed it. It was a follow up, somewhat, to "Majestic Descending". Same characters but this time, more of a main character was John Delaney, ex NYC cop, boyfriend to Katherine Adams, star of the first of the 2 titles. Definitely some interesting twists to the story, some taking place in NYC as well as the Atlanta, Ga area. I do like the strong female character in Katherine and she and John make a good match in the sorting out and detective work needed to figure this mystery out.

I'm seen some rather negative reviews of this book - but I thought it was just fine. It's light reading, not great literature. Mitchell Graham surely isn't Lee Child. But this was still a very nice quick read. It kept me interested and totally glued to it for the last 100 pages - and the earlier pages weren't bad at all either. I really enjoyed the characters and would probably read another book from this author without hesitation.

John Delaney and Katherine Adams are an interesting couple. He used to be an NYPD detective and is now a lawyer, while she is a brainy Atlanta attorney. They volunteer to settle the affairs of the daughter of a family friend. This story is quite complicated, with a number of other persons playing a role before it is over.
