5.0 su 5 stelle Scott Fenney's back, better than ever! 21 gennaio 2016
Di Paul Mastin - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
It's a good day when I get an e-mail from Mark Gimenez announcing a new novel! I look forward to each new legal thriller from this Texas writer, and he has yet to disappoint. The Absence of Guilt is as fresh as the latest CNN news crawl and as suspenseful as a season of 24. Fans of Gimenez's earlier novels will welcome the return of A. Scott Fenney, now a Federal judge. We catch up with his daughters, some of his admirers (and detractors) in Highland Park, and his legal team. We also learn the fate of his ex-wife in a cameo appearance.

More important than the reunion is the story of a terrorist threat to destroy the Dallas Cowboys's stadium during the Superbowl. (This is how you know The Absence of Guilt is pure fantasy: Gimenez has Tony Romo leading the Cowboys to a Superbowl appearance!) A bunch of local Muslims are rounded up and appear in Fenney's court. The trouble is, the government can't present a single piece of evidence tying the Muslims to a plot. Fenney has to rule on whether they can be held in custody, at least until after the Superbowl.

Gimenez's readers won't be surprised that he doesn't take a hard-line stance on the issues at hand. The Muslims don't elicit a lot of sympathy, but by presenting the extreme anti-Muslim point of view from some characters ("Islam is no longer a peaceful religion." "All Muslims are terrorists in waiting."), Gimenez gives Fenney the chance to take a more moderate view. Fenney even learns that a trusted member of his staff is Muslim.

On another issue, Fenney is called on to rule in an immigration decision. Should immigrants be granted amnesty? On both cases, Fenney has to balance his own opinion and emotional responses with political considerations and constitutional questions. Gimenez includes several lengthy passages of arguments and Fenney's decisions that make for thoughtful, informative reading, but he never lets these passages get in the way of the story.

Gimenez has a gift for tying together real-world, present-day issues with engaging stories in such a way that the reader has to think about multiple aspects of the issues. What seems to be black and white in many contexts ends up being not so clear in his novels. One thing is for sure: we can count on Fenney to make the right call. If Fenney keeps up the good work, he will land a spot on the Supreme Court.

(One other note that lets you know The Absence of Guilt is pure fantasy: Gimenez has Obama apologizing for releasing terrorists from Gitmo and taking the blame for the former prisoners going back to their ways as terrorist leaders. I just can't see Obama saying, "That was my bad." Gimenez apparently thinks more highly of Obama than I do! I think real-life Obama would more likely apologize to the Muslims for their imprisonment.)

Gimenez's readers will be delighted with The Absence of Guilt. It's one of his best. Fans of a good suspense novel with colorful, engaging characters and thoughtful, practical commentary on important current issues will similarly not be disappointed. The only drawback is the wait for Gimenez's next book!

5.0 su 5 stelle Ripped from the headlines thrill ride! 16 gennaio 2016
Di Texas Wave - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

Steeped in current events (very current!), Federal Judge A. Scott Fenney is assigned a case that is far from his usual mediocre motion and postponement cases. His latest involves terrorism, ISIS, national politics and US Constitutional Law. As friends, family and his own safety are threatened, Scott is faced with his greatest challenge.

The story is complex but understandable; you will have a hard time putting this book down as A. Scott (my favorite Gimenez character) goes up against true evil, and chillingly demonstrates how our freedoms are constrained by the very laws that keep us free.

I learned a lot, lost some sleep reading until the wee hours, and thoroughly enjoyed Gimenez' latest. I highly recommend this read, and hope we get to follow Scott in more books to come!

4.0 su 5 stelle Ethics hold up 9 giugno 2016
Di Maggie Maestra - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
I've read most of Gimenez' books and really like them, and also Scott Finney. Absence of Guilt is very good and a thoughtful read, however I did have several issues with it. He over does the 'now Scott's poor' angle in my opinion. Anyone making 200,000 a yr with good perks is not poor! Many folks drive Fords--and not because they're poor! Many folks do not have a pool in the back yard. Poor people don't usually buy their groceries at Whole Foods. It just seemed like he was pushing it. And I don't think there are any yellow crepe myrtles. I've never seen any, and couldn't find that they exist. These petty details stood out to me, but did not keep me from enjoying the book, nor from planning to read the next one out. The treatment of the immigration issue was interesting and a good way to keep Scott on the straight and ethical path that he has chosen; it's good when a character holds true to high standards, which Gimenez' characters all do. That is why his books are so readable. That and the way he uses his settings. The main characters are always likeable and mostly real. A very literate author.

2.0 su 5 stelle Promising beginning then veers to the RIDICULOUS! 6 marzo 2016
Di wendy - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
Fascinating (& relevant) plot line that started out sooo promising but then 1/2 way through it veered off to the ridiculous. The Author either hasn't consulted with experts in the professions he is writing about or doesn't have faith in the intellect of his readers, or both. Each of the characters were easy to relate to, compassionate and often humorous.- BUT as the story unfolded the author amplified the personas to such an extreme that the most endearing traits became annoying and, when entwined in with the plot's action became unbelievable.

a few of the many examples (SPOILER ALERT!): Scott's 12 year old daughter taunts and laughs in the face of a terrorist with a sword to her neck??? Cat, the FBI Agent who is aching for a promotion but almost immediately pursues Scott romantically. ...She acknowledges she must be careful because any involvement could be career ending - yet their first 'get together' is in his living room with his daughters in the house (not to mention Scott, the over protective Dad doing this) and then starts SEXTING HIM.....are you kidding me???! Later Cat is on a manhunt through the neighborhood with Scott (& no other agents) & then all the Agents insist Scott come with them to chase the suspected terrorists through a sarin filled Arena.......gimme a break!!!.
3.0 su 5 stelle Nose dive..... 5 maggio 2017
Di JEMSON - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

The author's previous Scott Fenney books I liked. Then came this one, a story that started off pretty well... and then nose-dived into a ridiculous concoction of poor writing and structure, and absurd events. What happened? I don't know. It was as if the author got bored with keeping a tight storyline, tired of letting it develop naturally. Comedic sequences and silly character lines suddenly appeared, not in keeping with what this reader expected. When Gimenez is in legal mode, inside a court of law, he is good. But, in this book, at least, he is all over the place outside, a mismanaged hokum of a story the result. Disappointing.
