FROM THE PUBLISHER
"Bernhardt is a master legal tour guide, taking the reader through the labyrinth of the judicial system of America's heartland."
Mostly Murder

Ben Kincaid is not a superstar attorney. In Tulsa, Oklahoma, there are only a few lawyers who win headlines and big bucks. So when the notorious Apollo Consortium offers Ben a job as their in-house counsel, he takes itfor the money.

The violence in the streets outside the Apollo is nothing compared to the backstabbing politics of the firm. And when Ben wins his first case, he unwittingly sets up some bitter rivalry with his colleaguesrivalry that will culiminate in a fellow lawyer's dead body and Ben charged with murder.

"Ben Kincaid is a refreshing change from the omniscient, holier-than-thou attorney/investigators whose courtroom acrobatics and aerial law displays are more show than substance."

Ben Kincaid, Tulsa's maverick lawyer decides to take a fling with a big law firm and steps into a mess of corporate greed and murder.

Before Bernhardt, I had read only one and one-half books by John Grisham and although those books were okay, I found that the movies based on his books were better. Bernhardt, on the other hand, does not write the same book twice (although many of the characters are the same) and in "Deadly Justice" the ending was a surprise to me; or else I'm losing my "knew-whodunit" edge....

I hope whoever chooses this book enjoys it as much as I. I read it in one night because it is/was a page-turner; speaking subjectively, that is.

Ben Kincaid is not a superstar attorney. In Tulsa, Ok., there are only a few lawyers who win headlines and big bucks. So when the notorious Apollo Consortium offers Ben a job as their in-house counsel, he takes it-for the money. The violence in the streets outside Apollo is nothing compared to the backstabbing politics at the firm. And when Ben wins his first case, he unwittingly set us some bitter rivalry with his colleagues-a rivalry that will culminate in a fellow lawyer's dead body and Ben charged with his murder. With no one to trust, and the press clamoriing for a guilty man, Ben's given one week to clear himself. By day he's in the courtroom trying to save the firm its blood money. At night, he's scouring the streets for a lead on a murderer-and ending up on a psychotic's hit list himself...

found this to have too many characters to keep track of and the story not so great
