Most Helpful Customer Reviews
As I read the reviews for Susan's other books I am amazed at the differences of opinion. More and more I come to the conclusion that you should not be overly influenced by any ONE persons evaluation of a book. (nor of a critic's opinion). Susan puts MEAT into her novels that capture you and keep you reading -- smooth as silk and a MUST read for the serious fiction reader.
Lily (Lee) White is a criminal defense attorney with a con man who has been accused of murder as a client. Starts out interesting but then went downhill with no real surprises.
