Fantastic thrilling read!

I was really impressed by the authors ability to capture my attention for so long - I was not expecting it since lawyer novels are not usually my cup of tea. I was pleasantly surprised by the twists and turns, as well as the strong female lead he created. I loved how many different perspectives could be taken in the novel as well so when you thought you understood it it took another turn. I highly recommend this novel if you love lawyer thrillers and it is a great story

What I Loved:
This book had a great mixture of a legal story along with what you would want out of a mystery and thriller! I didn’t feel lost in legal talk and enjoyed the entire story. The legal aspects were really enjoyable and I wanted more!

How I Felt:
This story took me on quite the ride! It was so filled with surprises, I was kept on the edge of my seat through a lot of it. There were times where I thought the case had been wrapped up, but then another twist would happen, and I would be surpr

It frightens me, the idea of mixing research and fiction. So when I set a scene in say, a courtroom, I just write what comes to mind...and the research comes later. Much later.

Kicking and screaming.

It's good to see people bring their jobs into their writing--it adds a layer of authenticity. *Blanket Immunity* feels authentic from start to finish. Adam Van Susteren is a civil litigation attorney after all, and it shows--sometimes too much. There are spots where he dumps a lot info on us.

Wrap yourself in a delightful crime novel

I very much enjoyed this ebook. Interesting characters abound, including a likable, if dangerous street thug, Omar, and a villainous “victim.” The plot has more than enough suspenseful twists to provide an fun frolic to the reader. Kudos to the author for accuracy in portraying the legal system. Additional kudos to this male author for creating a rounded female protagonist, attorney Jo Channing. I will be following his future works.

This was a simple, pleasurable book to read. Fast-paced and exciting, it follows Jo Channing outside of her job as a public defender to becoming a defence attorney. She meets some questionable characters and makes a somewhat rookie mistake. How she cleans this up is super impressive to me as well as encouraging. This is one of those books you jusr can't help concluding! ...more

A bit confusing at times, but still enjoyable!

Blanket Immunity strong point isn't it's storyline, which is pretty complex and hard to navigate at times. It's rather the multi-cultural background and personal aspects imbuing the entire novel. It is the enchantment of falling in love however unrealistically fast it happens and of people supporting one another even beyond the classic family ties.

If you expect the classic legal thriller, you might be disappointed, but I still recommend this book to
