Murphy’s Will is a legal thriller. If you enjoy legal thrillers ala John Grisham, then this novel will be right up your alley.

The characters are interesting and interact in complex and interesting ways that hold a little mystery along with all the thrills provided by the story.

This was quite a surprise. It is a short read that I finished in a single setting. A legal procedural with enough suspense to keep me turning pages. It’s a feel good story where the good guys win. That’s not really a spoiler because you can tell by the style as you read that it will have a happy ending. There is a refreshing lack of cynicism that kept it uplifting and enjoyable.
A young man disappears on a quest for the meaning of life. During the three years he is out of touch his father comes i

It's been a good while since I've come across a legal thriller that wasn't a cheap John Grisham knockoff. Let's just be real, it's not easy to make probate and estate law titillating but then comes Edward A. McCoyd with Murphy's Will, a novel chock full of thrills, drama, action, mystery, and suspense. It is a rather quick read at only 224 pages but it packs a good punch. The opening scene grabs your attention and holds it tight right through the epilogue. That it is set in 1987 at first had me ...more
