Billed as similar to John Grisham, this book was a disappointment. Took forever to read. Suspense not built up. Poorly edited.

This murder mystery is written by a female attorney and includes female attorneys as the main characters, and I enjoyed it very much. A fantastic first novel by Mimi Latt.
