Summary

Attorney Robert Worth unreels a movieland murder as the Amazon Charts bestselling Beach Lawyer series continues.

When Robert Worth relocated his law practice to the Venice Beach boardwalk, he never thought he’d be cutting movie deals. But when his pal Reyes needs legal help with his film project, Robert agrees to look into it. The road to Hollywood fame takes a crooked turn after a potential billionaire backer turns up dead in his Brentwood mansion - and Reyes is arrested for first-degree murder. 

Robert may not have any criminal-law experience, but with the help of his girlfriend, Gia, and his buddy Erik, a retired cop, he takes the case. He even zeroes in on the logical prime suspect. Appearances can be deceiving, however, in a city where the truth often ends up on the cutting room floor. It’ll take an aggressive lawyer with a fine-tuned BS detector to find the real killer in a sunlit town full of shady characters - unless his own death becomes the next Hollywood option.

Great Lawyer Story Without A Trial—Fast Paced

Another action packed story about Robert Worth, beach lawyer. This time about a screen play and the people who option it and then want to keep the writer dangling just in case. The story takes the reader from the beach to a fancy party to seeing one of Robert’s best friends arrested for murder. Seems unlikely but the clues all point to Reyes. While Reyes is in jail awaiting arraignment, Robert gets to work to find out who really committed the murder. The story involves several characters, any one of whom could have been the murderer, but the actual killer is not revealed until the end. It is almost impossible to figure out why and who the murdered is and how all the connections get made. I enjoyed all three books and hope #4 doesn’t take a year to publish. This is a fast paced series and the writer’s skill is terrific. I listened on audible and the narrator, James Patrick Cronin, is also excellent. He has the skill to make his characters sound like who they are. Well done!

Another Fantastic Listen from Avery Duff!

I've read all of the Beach Lawyer books, and all three of them were wonderful. Characterization: Unmatched in Mysteries and Thrillers. Plot: Absolute Best in Class. James Patrick Cronin: The best voice actor in the business. I don't know how he does it, but he makes the characters come alive. The Whole Package? I've probably listened to 500 audiobooks. In my opinion the Beach Lawyer books are the best. Thank you Mr. Duff. Thank you Mr. Cronin. Please come back soon.

Narrator is terrible

Story was just OK but the narrator was awful
His inflection was in all the wrong places made it very difficult to listen to the story
