Wow. I haven'd read a good legal thriller since the Client, and this was everything. It was fast paced, always kept my interest and it wasn't so bogged down with legal jargon that it was hard to follow. Vernetta was funny, witty, and strong and I enjoyed her POV. Her husband, Jefferson reminded me so much of the men, including my husband, that I have met in my life. With there views on adoption and the whole machismo that poured out their mouths with every line spoken. It wasn't too much and it was easy to see that yes he was a man, and had male ideas about what a wife was to do for him, but you can also see the weak parts in himself that he could only show his wife. I loved that. He was a such a realist character. I don't think that he was whiny at all.
Special, her home girl, was another character/friend that I felt every women has. That one friend that always says whats on her mind, even when you don't want to hear it, but have to hear it anyway. Vernetta's working relationships with both David and Neddy, especially Neddy, was something to admire. Being the only two African American Women at this law firm, at first you do feel like you have to be enemies (which I think it stupid, and brings up that whole thing about crabs in a barrel, but no one seems to understand, that a barrel isn't the crabs natural habitat but whatever) then being placed on this case made them put all that crap to the side and a great friendship bloomed.
But all in all, enjoyed this book. It was thrilling, but it wasn't as thrilling as I thought it might be. But since this wasn't from a POV of a PI or police officer, I can see why it wasn't THAT thrilling. The conversations were realistic and flowed very well. The characters were easy to see and I def will be reading the rest of this series.
I found Vernetta's (the main character) husband very childish and tiresome, and at times I had to wonder if the author used the scenes with him as "filler" for the story. The same goes for the scenes with Vernetta's best friend, "Special". To tell the truth, I wanted Vernetta to send both her husband and her friend packing. Not only did they come across as a "crutch" for the story, but they totally ruined the tempo and content of what could have been a really good novel. Other than this, I enjoyed the legal side of the plot.
Spoiler alert! Don't read further if you don't want the spoilers!
If the girlfriend went into the murder room after the crime was committed and so much was discussed about the shoe size prints in the blood, why weren't there 2 sets of shoe prints in the blood, and surely the sex of the wearer of the particular shoe could be determined as the 2 women who entered the room were both dressed up and would've been wearing easily identifiable women's shoes, and why wasn't the girl friend ever called to the stand to testify by the defense? It could've been the girlfriend that was "seen" in the passage outside the room. The defense would definitely have used the fact that it could've been someone else that entered the room rather than the accused wife as they knew that someone else DID enter the room before the body was found.
What happened to blood spatter tests that should've been taken off the accused wife and her belongings? Surely they would've found blood on some article of hers, impossible to have absolutely no trace if she had to go back to her room and change get her bloodied clothes. Also if he was already dead when stabbed then the coroner would've been able to determine this.
This series is starting off really good. I recommend this book as I go on to read "In Firm Pursuit" Book #2.
