Tiny dynamo Sasha McCandless returns in Inadvertent Disclosure.
It's been six months since an airplane crash altered the course of attorney Sasha McCandless' professional and personal life. She's busy building her solo law practice and tending her budding relationship with federal air marshal Leo Connelly, who helped her stop a madman. When Sasha drives from Pittsburgh to rural Clear Brook County to argue a run-of-the-mill discovery motion, she finds a town bitterly divided over the issue of hydrofracking the Marcellus Shale beneath it. Outsiders from the oil and gas industry and environmental activists threaten to rip apart the fabric of the small town. Then the town's only judge is murdered, and Sasha can't just walk away. But, as she works to find the killer, she must race to save the town before it fractures beyond repair.
This is the second book in the Sasha McCandless legal thriller series, which begins with Irreparable Harm.
the story was very interesting. the narration however was distracting. the main characters voice sounded like a cute little girl, not a self assured lawyer. I'll READ any future books if it's the same narrator

I’m addicted to Sasha McCandless or I would give up listening to this dreadful series of recordings. Southern twangs, Valley girls, and incomprehensible mash-ups of northeastern city accents all in characters in Pittsburgh? Why oh why? And can someone give the voice actor a hint about pronouncing the legal Latin? It is painful.
Very good story line, good narration -what's not to like?
Sasha is a good character that is easy to relate to. The mystery is well done with a twist or two. I've already gone through the second book in this series and am ready for the third.
This isn't a bad book, and I rather liked the main character, attorney Sasha McCandless. I did not read the first in this series, but little depended upon that except for her first meeting with her current lover and unofficial "partner," Air Marshall Leo Connelly. Sasha is appointed to handle a case completely outside her area of expertise, which already seems rather unlikely. Although she is an attorney, this is not a legal thriller. She falls into become a kind of informal detective, essentially abandoning her personal, fledgling law practice in Pittsburg. I found the conclusion unsatisfying, wherein the villains essentially self-destructed rather than being unmasked by Sasha or the police through their investigative efforts.
I had a difficult time getting used to Karen Commins' reading; her voice is rather harsh, and she has considerable difficulties portraying male voices. She also mispronounced a number of words.
I probably will give the successor book, Irretrievably Broken, a try to see whether I would want to continue the series.
