M Glad Kate Wilhelmglad Kate Wilhelm a following I ll just move on to mystery writers that give me of a thrill Not a great idea sometimes to skip books in a series but when others are not availablewellI enjoyed the story Maybe not as exciting as some of the previous stories but well told A crime from the past and a crime in the present give a very compelling look at our justice system and how a person is process and prepared to go to trial I like the lawyer information I o like Barbara Holloway and her Dad Frank While as almost always I enjoyed this book in Wilhelm s Holloway series my brain protested the whole way through about the amazing memories of characters who recalled in precise The Modern Drunkard's Adventures with Alcohol detail the events of a party from 20 years before who left with whom at what time whorank what what was said who Grassroots Leviathan danced with whom who parked where or arrived on foot etc While I can usually overlook this kind of plotevice for an instance or two under the willing suspension of Voices and Veils disbelief reader s clause I found it a major hitch in the book that the whole plot hinged on this incredibly unrealistic point Still Ion t read Wilhelm only for plot but primarily for the real flawed yet admirable characters that she carries from book to book Love this series They just keep getting better Barbara Holloway and her father Frank make an awesome pair when it come to solving cases and Facts and Features of English History, a Series of Alternating Reading and Memory Exercises defending their clients This one was especially good I think Wilhelm is captivating author. Ra must battle the prosecution and the court of public opinion which has already tried and convicted Etheridge for both murders As the pressure mounts Barbara ties the past and present together risking her own life to preserve justic.
