“I was loving this. The beauty of being a defense lawyer is that I don’t have to prove anything. All I have to do is poke enough holes in the People’s case to give the jury reasonable doubt. This new information presented exactly the kind of juicy scenario likely to distract and confuse a jury.””
In Snap Judgment, Samantha Brinkman returns when a prominent attorney is a likely suspect to a murder of a young man suspected of killing his daughter. Needless to say, the attorney does not a good client make. As all of this is taking place, she is again “compelled” to help an underworld boss in order to protect her secret. She has to rely on her father, Dale, to help her tread through dangerous waters.
As with the first two books in the series, I loved the characters and the subplot with her father. I really enjoyed this and am looking forward to the next in the series. If you’ve read the other novels, you know that she can be dangerous when threatened.
“But there was a lot more he didn’t know and would never know. As I thought about it now, I imagined he suspected that was the case. But suspecting isn’t knowing, and I’m a solo player by nature.

But I’d keep them in the back of my mind, and when the opportunity came along, I’d be ready.”
