After the 21,699,749th minute of his life, Dan Sorenson’s life fell apart when his wife and child were killed by a drunk driver. Having been a thousand dollar an hour lawyer. he’s now basically a drunk, when Nina, a friend of his wife’s best friend insists that he meet with Legally Dead, a black rapper being held at Riker’s. L.D. as he is known has been charged with the murder of his reputed girlfriend, Roxanne. Nina and Ben join forces to defend L.D. who insists he is innocent and there is reason to believe he may be right, even though the evidence appears overwhelming.
My measure of how much I enjoy a legal drama is legal repartee in the courtroom, the dialogue and interaction between lawyers and judges. By any measure this book succeeds well in that category.
A very surprising ending. Excellent page-turner.
