    Caught in the middle

    I read this in one sitting in order to keep all the characters straight in my mind. Beth Swahn's law firm has been retained by the BMI Alumni Association to prevent their old military school building from being torn down and its underground tunnels filled in. The opposing side headed by lawyer Herb Gartenberg is funded in part by a Venezuelan drug cartel. Underhanded dealings, blackmail schemes, and an old boys network that is alive and well kept this plot moving, though not in a straight line at times as time segments between 1984 through to the present day bounced around. I volunteered to read an ARC through Net Galley.

    When Past and Present Collide

    Attorney Beth Swahn finds herself caught between a rock and a hard place when she agrees to represent a former military academy. Facing demolition, there are those who are adamantly opposed ... not because of the building itself, but the tunnels that run underneath. What's so important about those tunnels? That's where the school's deepest and darkest secrets are buried ... and only a few know what the are. The prominent men of today were students years before the school was shut down. They will go to any lengths to protect themselves ... which puts Beth in the middle of a maelstrom. This case may kill her career .. or more. This is a legal thriller that seems to have something for everyone .... murder, suicide, assaults, cover-ups by the elite, even a little romance. Characters are finely drawn .. some I loved, some I hated ... but all unique in their own ways. The story premise is complex, but the author's writing doesn't allow for any confusion on the reader's part. The author's history of being an attorney himself lends credibility to this fine book. Many thanks to the author / Random House -Alibi / Netgalley for the advanced digital copy of this legal thriller. Opinions expressed here are unbiased and entirely my own.

    Decent but not great

    I liked this book but I wouldn't say I loved it. This is a decent legal thriller and crime drama but is a little unbelievable at times. The main character, Beth Swahn, is a lawyer at a law firm that is representing an Alumni Association that is trying to preserve their abandoned school and protect it from demolition by a contractor building a subdivision. Lots of money, shady deals and intimidation are involved in trying to get this deal pushed through but Beth seems to be able to manipulate the situation in her client's favor. Beth's research and investigative abilities at times seem to surpass the FBI and when it's time to bring the bad guys to justice she wants to be in on the take down and her FBI boyfriend does nothing to stop her and neither do any other law enforcement officers. That's very unbelievable. This story was a well thought out investigative legal and crime story but there is something a little off. There is way too much detail about trivial incidents at times and it reads a little cold. It starts off with a covered up suicide that really has nothing to do with the story and could have been deleted without making any difference. There is a lot of legal procedural information that is superfluous to non-lawyers. There is a lot of boating information that is also unnecessary. The dialogue at times is stilted and doesn't flow. Overall, some good editing could make this a much better book. All that said, I liked it; it just needs some polish. Thank you to the publisher and NetGalley for giving me this ARC in exchange for a fair and honest review.
