Garrett Goodlove hates liars. As a lawyer, he’s forced to deal with more than his fair share of cheats and con artists, but lately, he’s been getting fed up.
Goodlove suspects that his latest client, a jolly babushka by the name of Aksana Ivanova, is a grandmaster of deception. His law partner disagrees. But how can they be sure?
Soon after they get her weapons-possession charge dismissed on a technicality, the Redwood Point DA arrests her on a charge of first-degree murder. Apparently, the weapon found in the trunk of her car was used in an assassination.
Perhaps Ms. Ivanova isn’t who everyone thinks she is.
If Goodlove can’t figure out when she’s lying and when she’s telling the truth, he won’t be able to defend her.
Worse, he comes to fear that keeping her out of jail might not be such a good idea.
The Sexy Nerd ‘Revue’
Ok, try as I might, I could not find anything to like about this book, storyline, characters, nothing! First off, I take legal thrillers very seriously, especially the legal aspect of the story. I’m not sure what ticked me off more, the fact that this story was so farfetched or the fact that the characters didn’t make any kind of sense to me. It was as if this story was written as a joke, and I’m not sure if that’s what the author was going for?
