Critical Reaction - A Review
An explosion. A lawsuit. A coverup? Young lawyer, Emily Hart agrees to take her college friend's case - the lawsuit he is bringing against Covington Nuclear. Kieran insists that Covington is covering up extent and the type of radiation that he was exposed to when he was in an explosion. As Emily and her father, Ryan, get further and further into the case, they discover that things at Covington aren't what they seem. The more that they dig, the more startling facts they find. Will they be able to prove that Covington is responsible?
This is literally an explosive book. I don't usually read legal thrillers, or thrillers in general, so this was a branch out for me. I'd read the author's first book, Deposit Slip, and enjoyed his writing style. This one kept me interested from the first page to the last. I loved loved loved both Ryan and Poppy. I thought that Ryan's determination in the courtroom made for some tense moments. And Poppy, I loved how he knew that what he was being asked to do was wrong and he stands his ground. I wasn't expecting it to be as fast paced as it was. I'll certainly be keeping an eye out for more by this author.
I received this book for free from Bethany House Publishers for the purpose of reviewing. My thoughts and opinions are my own.
Recommend to fans of Dan Brown, Tom Clancy, John Grissom, Robert Whitlock, legal thrillers.
