Publisher's Summary

"Scott, it's Rebecca. I need you." After years of silence, Texan lawyer Scott Fenney receives a devastating phone call from his ex-wife. She has been accused of murdering her boyfriend, Trey - the man she left Scott for - and is being held in a police cell. Now she is begging Scott to defend her. Scott is used to high-stakes cases, but this one is bigger than anything he has handled before. If Rebecca is found guilty, she will be sentenced to life imprisonment. Her future is in his hands. As he prepares to take the stand in the most dramatic courtroom appearance of his life, Scott is forced to question everything he believes to get to the truth - to save the life of the ex-wife he still loves...

What the Critics Say

"For my money, Grisham has grown stale over the past five years while Gimenez has gone from strength to strength...this is one of the best legal thrillers since Scott Turow's Presumed Innocent in 1987." (Daily Mail)

    "Enjoyable"

    Not as good as "The Goveners Wife" which was a serious read. At times I thought I was reading a comedy & it did make me smile. On the whole I enjoyed this sequel to "The Goveners Wife"

    I am an avid multi tasker, I love to listen as I walk, ride, clean... Mostly love crime novels but have an occasional foray into other genre

    "Great follow up"

    Read this on the back of the colour of law and was equally gripped. A really enjoyable
    listen tied up any loose ends from the previous book. Like his other book a little slow to get going but once it does it romps away.

    Story
    "Another good listen from Mark Gimenez"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would certainly recommend this book but I would say, read 'The Colour of Law' first as this is a sequel to that book.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Like the first book the storey keeps going at a good pace, it holds your interest. Although it revolves heavily around the law, it doesn't delve deaply into it, it's not complicated, which in my opinion makes it an easy listen. Great for walking the dogs!


    What about Jeff Harding’s performance did you like?

    I like Jeff Harding, I have listened to a few books he's narrated and I think he's excellent. I will say however that Pete Bradbury read the first book and in my opinion, his voice seemed to suit the characters better. It annoyed me a little in this book whent the pronunciation of Pajamae's name was changed from Paschamae to Pajamy.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I wouldn't say it moved me but the very end of the book on the boat, I wasn't expecting the narrative, perhaps I should have been.


    Any additional comments?

    I hope there are more in this series, I enjoyed the characters and would like to see how they develop.
