Murder One (David Sloane, #4)
Andy Plonka's review
Sep 14, 2011
A civil lawyer recovering from the horrendous murder of his wife a year earlier reluctantly agrees to defend a woman , also a lawyer, who is accused of murdering a Russian drug lord who sold drugs to the woman's daughter. The daughter dies of a drug overdose and her mother vows revenge, so when he dies she is automatically chosen as the prime suspect. Sloane, the civil lawyer undertakes a criminal case. There are lots of twists and turns and misdirection in this one, but the author basically plays fair and gives readers enough information to guess the outcome. Full of lawyerly detail, though I think some of the stuff about the mechanics of walking versus running are not accurate.
