About the Book: Criminal defense attorney Harrison J. Walker, better known as Jaywalker, has just been suspended for using “creative” tactics and receiving “gratitude” in the courtroom stairwell from a client charged with prostitution. Convincing the judge that his other clients are counting on him, Jaywalker is allowed to complete ten cases. But it’s the last case that truly tests his abilitiesand his acquittal record.

Samara Mossyoung, petite and sexy as hell stabbed her husband in the heart. Or so everyone believes. Having married the elderly billionaire when she was an eighteen-year-old former prostitute, Samara appears to be the cliched gold digger. But Jaywalker knows all too well that appearances can be deceiving. Who else could have killed the billionaire? Has Samara been framed? Or is Jaywalker just driven by his need to win his clients’ cases and this particular client’s undying gratitude?

My Review:I love legal thrillers! I especially love legal thrillers that give me that extra special glimpse into the law and the intricate workings of the court and in that way this book delivered. It was also a pretty great mystery with a very fun lawyer to root for in Jay Walker.

I read this on a plane and it kept me with it, so that classifies it as a page turner. Even so there were a few things about the writing that I found distracting at times. It wasn’t overwhelmingly distracting but the presence of an omniscient narrator pulled me out of the story at times. Even so, the case was fascinating and keeps you guessing up until the very end.

I look forward to more work from Mr. Teller in the future!

Please note there are some sexual references and language in the book…but it wasn’t overwhelming at all.

    I couldn’t even finish this, but so far all the other reviews I’ve read have been positive.

    This is waiting for me on the bookshelf; I thought I’d get to it by mid-month. Thanks for the reminder with this positive review … I’ll have to take it off the shelf and put it on the nightstand.
