Summary ↠ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB ✓ Martin Clark
A complicated story is shielded from the reader even though the character knew what was going to happenHighly recommendDavid Putnam author of the Bruno Johnson series A very clever lot with a great main character The book starts a little bit like Better Call Saul as the main character a disbarred lawyer is working as a supervisor at a fast food restaurant The story has a lot of twists and some memorable characters that encompass the full range from good to evil The only drawback is the speed at which the The White Mans Burden plot develops as the author uses some filler narrative that could have been avoided This is my second book by this author and he is fast becoming one of my favorite legal mystery writers Mistakes were made justice subverted revenge was the cleverest of allTheremise Visit the Sick pulled me in and I found the first few chapters absorbing but it veers off in another direction before it all becomes clear I know I sound a bit vague but to say is to ruin this cleverlylotted tale It s a bit dense however so if you go in with the expectation of a legal thriller it s not going to go well for you Once I shrugged off the blurbs I was able to settle into this well crafted story and enjoy its literary meritsThe author Carry Me Over the Threshold points out the failings of humans and of the legal system androvides a rather satisfying ending hints of which the shrewd reader will The Courtship Basket pick up along the way However I d have enjoyed it if the legal aspects hadn t gotten so deep in the weeds At times technically specific the legal machinations are often incomprehensible to anyone without a law degree The law s an unforgiving bitch isn t it Once you make a single mistake everything else you do is viewed through a warped lens and any new narrative begins with the assumption that you re simply up to of the same old criminal bullshit Guilty just like last time I ended my 2019 reading year with this book and it seems a fitting end to what was a year of fits and starts I can t say I loved every minute of this but I will definitely give this author another try because despite the deep dive into law I thoroughly enjoyed the characters and tricky bits and that bumped it to a solid 4Read December 2019 Excellent Well written and not the usual andredictable Deuteronomy, Joshua, Judges, Ruth, 1 2 Samuel (The Expositors Bible Commentary pretty little bow ending Very cleverlot with a double entendre title Well deserved 5 stars. Rious stranger wanders into the shop armed with a threatening invitation to join a multimillion dollar scam Kevin will need every bit of his legal savvy just to stay out of Small Talk prison A remarkable tour of the law's tricks and hidden trapdoors The Substitution Order is both wise and ingenious a wildly entertaining novel that will keep you guessing and rooting for its tenacious hero until the very lastag.
