This was a real legal thriller/page turner. I did not realize that it was part of a series. This is the 9th in the Ben Kincaid series. Ben is a sole practitioner in Tulsa. 11 children in a nearby town died from leukemia. The apparent connection was polluted water from a nearby manufacturing plant. The parents sue in a class action suit and the intrigue begins and does not quit until the end. Seemingly unrelated subplots and plot twists abound. Not to be missed. I am going to read the rest of thi ...more

I'm not quite sure how I ended up with this book in my stack from the library. It's ninth in a series I have never read before, and according to what I've recorded, I've never even read the author before. The description on the inside cover doesn't reference the fact it's part of a series, so my best guess is I picked it up randomly and thought it looked like a decent, escapist legal thriller.

I don't have anything against series writing per se. It's just different than what I usually read these
The story is about a powerful rich corporation accused of improper waste disposal, this fact causes the death of eleven children who live in a nearby neighborhood, there is also a subplot featuring a sadistic killer who makes the impossible to accomplish his goal. The author is a great storyteller, in this book he deflty manages two different parallel stories, and subtly intertwines them until they merge into the main plot, he knows how to handle ticking bomb suspense and e
Best story so far in this series

Well what can I say? During the trial I wanted to beat hell out of Colby and Judge Perry. I'm betting this is why most people feel that justice is not served. Of course just when I've given up hope. Here comes Ben and his gang to give back hope for justice. Good job!
It was hard to decide between three and four stars because of one factor: several really gruesome murders. After the first one I knew that the others would be likewise gruesome and skipped the details. I do really enjoy the characters of Ben Kincaid and Christina and there are some real surprises. My husband and I read quite a few of the earlier books and then we somehow stopped reading, I'm not sure why.

My most recent visit with William Bernhardt's excellent series featuring the relentless attorney, Ben Kincaid and his loyal collection of staff, friends, and adversaries, is my favorite so far. The case is again probably hopeless and presents a substantial economic threat to all concerned, but Ben plows ahead and shows his dedication to fighting the good fight against huge odds. The plot is tight and the outcome unpredicted, but the reader leaves well satisfied as always. Bernhardt always keeps ...more
William Bernhardt's legal thrillers feature lawyer Ben Kincaid, who takes on big, impossible cases with few resources. In this one, Kincaid represents a family of a young leukemia victim and raises serious questions about the link of illegal dumping of industrial chemicals to causing leukemia. Plot twists keep you going until the final word. A very good read!

Children are dying from cancer in a small Oklahoma town. The parents suspect toxic waste from a local plant is the cause and convince Ben kincaid to take the case. A deranged man takes a law class that Kincaid is teaching hostage and kills one student. Employees of the company named in the law suit are being tortured and murdered.

After a break of a few months I am back reading Bernhardt's books. This story is a little like Erin Brocovich. Bernhardt's writing has a new depth to it. I just wish his character, Ben Kincaid, could try a case with an impartial judge.
A strong environmental theme gone wrong...a very sad story in the middle of a legal thriller. Definite read for any William Bernhardt fan.
It was well written, but too close to A Civil Action for me. But then again, it was written a long time before today.
Love the main characters in this series, but had to give them up due to the amount of violence and brutal murders.
Another interesting Kincaid book. Obviously a quick read and again hits on interesting social issues.
Great book! I loved it! I highly recommend it to all Grisham and Turow fans.
One of the better Kincaid books.
Slow start but good read.

William loves his job and it shows in his writing. Library Journal has called him the "master of the courtroom drama;" his books have sold more than ten million copies worldwide. The Vancouver Sun dubbed him "the American equivalent of P.G. Wodehouse and John Mortimer." His novel Dark Eye was a psychological thriller that, in the words of bestselling author Lisa Scottoline, "will chill you while i ...more
