This is my first Richard North Patterson book, and I really enjoyed it. However, it is not an easy read, by that I mean not one that you can read quickly. It is very indepth and involved, the story-line is complex and makes you concentrate. But if you like involved courtroom stories, this book is for you. I plan to read more of this author.
