Loved, loved, loved this book. Although I wasn't sure I would at first. Instead of just going through one case it's more like you are show the whole workload of a assistant D.A.(well then he becomes the D.A). You actaully follow along for 3 current cases, and one past case that deals with one of the present cases. It got a bit confusing at time. Lots of people in the picture to keep straight, so it started a bit slow and annoying, but I'm so glad I kept reading. It quickly picked up the paces and kept me on the edge of my seat for all 503 pages!

sequel to "Primal Fear", takes up 10 years after that story ended. I loved picking up where the characters are, and this book is as chilling and scary as the first. Another one that I couldn't put down.
