Legal Thriller Fans: This Will Soothe a Craving Aug 11, 2008
Sydney Braun's debut thriller has some faults, but overall legal thriller fans will be glad to pick it up and plunge in.
The story centers around the death of a senator's child while she's asea with some friends against her parents' wishes. The senator pressures the DA to try the case as a homicide instead of an involuntary manslaughter case, and the story then moves into the efforts of the defendant's legal team to disprove an unproveable case.
The courtroom scenes are well-written but the characters are highly stereotyped. A semi-believable romantic relationship keeps intruding upon the plot, but overall this is a good read.
Great Read! Aug 10, 2008
This book is so good I swallowed it up! Great legal thriller. I haven't read one this good since The Firm-John Grissom. The book has everything from racial tension to political intrigue. I highly recommend this book and can hardly wait for another one from this author! Shirlz
exhilarating legal thriller Jul 2, 2008
To celebrate her daughter Teesha's seventeenth birthday in style, Boston based attorney Rayna Martin rents a boat to take her teenage child and Teesha's three musketeer friends (Christina, Mariah and Francie) on a sea trip. However, the happy occasion turns tragic when Christina drowns.
Christina's father Senator Rudolph Haynes is outraged blaming race for the death of his daughter. He and his child are white Brahmins while the Martins and the other two friends are African-American working class. He pounds the DA into charging Rayna with a race related murder. Rayna hires attorney David Cavanaugh to defend her while her best friend Sara Davis vows to help prove a tragic accident occurred.
Rudolph is overly stereotyped as an ambitious always right manipulative conservative politician rather than a full blooded grieving dad lashing out at the only adult he can; whereas the rest of the cast including the late Christie seem genuine. Stealing the show from a secondary perspective is the victim's mom who reassesses all she believed in the American dream. Well written, UNDERTOW is an exhilarating legal thriller that turns over the Simpson premise that money can buy the dream team defense as influence can purchase the best prosecution in the world.
