The paperback is 630 pages long. Gave up after 230 pages. The author did such an awful job of initial character development in the 1st 100 pages that it made it difficult/impossible to support the main characters (Dismas, Frannie (his wife), Jennifer (the accused)). Other important characters (Freeman, Terrell, Abe, Jennifer's family and therapist) were also poorly portrayed. The story contains 1 of the "dumbest" plot devices I've ever come across: Frannie is insecure and jealous over Jennifer, so she asks to meet Jennifer. Big waste of time.

A bit too long & some bad writing but mostly a good read. Amazingly incompetent lawyers though. Hard to believe courtroom procedures are like this in real life, but who knows, it's the USA where the object seems to be to give lawyers a good living.

I usually like long books, they give me a chance to stay immersed in a plot for several days. This one, though, was disappointing at the end. Several hundred pages to end with a Perry Mason-esque conclusion in a few pages

This is Lescroart at his best. There is lots of detective work, many red herrings, a sneakily misleading title, some excellent courtroom scenes, and a surprise ending.
