Summary

Deaver. Dangerously good.

Taylor Lockwood spends her days working as a paralegal in one of New York's preeminent Wall Street law firms and her nights playing jazz piano anywhere she can. But the rhythm of her life is disrupted when attorney Mitchell Reece asks her to find a stolen document that could cost him the multimillion-dollar case he's defending...and his career as well.

Taylor signs on...only to find that as she delves deeper and deeper into what goes on behind closed doors at Hubbard, White & Willis, she uncovers more than she wants to know - including secrets damaging enough to smash careers and dangerous enough to kill for. But who is capable of going to that extreme? With her life on the line, Taylor is about to learn the lethal answer....

Awful narration.

Good for getting you to sleep. One of his early books and you can tell.

I can not read one more page


Commercial books do not have to be so stilted and unimaginative the formula can vary a bit, the level of disbelief you have to endure to enjoy this story is torture, the plot is a travesty of implausible and the characters are laughable.
There was no reason to finish it, I was not able to care for any of the characters or the events.
wasted money and precious time.

Not bad, not Deaver at his best

It started slowly, gained momentum, got quite good, then lost its way at the end. Not really what one expects from this author but alright if you can't find anything new to read.
