This is a novel that was long overdue I fell in love with this character in the Thaddeus Murfee series Christine Sussman is an ex Marine who has seen active duty and has since retired from the force She became a paralegal working alongside Thaddeus in his practice and became his right arm While working as a paralegal she decided to go back to law school to get her degreeIn Chris’ first installment of a great series to come she’s married to a wonderful man named Sonny She has two children Jamie and Janny Jamie’s I is off the charts and I suppose he gets his smarts from his mom He’s extremely resourceful and knows exactly what he wants and he’s only in middle school Chris got to try out her legal chops with a high profiled sexual assault case Her client Bussie was in college studying to be a doctor when one of her roommates became ill and couldn’t go to the Toga party happening at one of the frat houses Bussie wasn’t into partying but she was all too eager to help out her friends She gets dressed in the Toga gear and heads on out While there several of the frat brothers were dancing and drinking it up and offered her a cup of beer Bussie not being a drinker much less a social one drank up and the next thing she remembers was being on a couch nude with a blanket over her She was in pain but didn’t think much of it at the timeIt wasn’t until Bussie receives a text from her best friend showing Bussie posed nude in sexual situations plastered all over the Internet when she soon realized that something terribly went wrong at the frat house Unbeknownst to the alleged frat brothers who did this to her they picked the wrong unsuspecting wanna be med student to mess with Bussie’s father is a prosecutor for the Chicago courts When it is revealed to him what has happened to his daughter all hell literally breaks loose and this is when Christine Sussman’s legal training comes into play Good storyPlot is from today's headlines or it could be yesterday's and tomorrow's too College and fraternities Christine is strong woman having money in this case helps her and she knows how to use it Hope Alaska plot will be in the next book You'll enjoy reading this book A Must Read Especially If You Have A DaughterThis is so far about Christine and her family Technically after she and Thaddeus made a killing after a major settlement no spoiler here she never needed to work a day in her lifeHowever if you have read than two Thaddeus Murfee books you know Christine is not made that way She paid her way through law school and has opened her own practice Maybe she didn't join Thaddeus because he was in Flagstaff and she didn't want to leave Chicago That has never been clearA major crime occurs The Chicago DA has to conflict out his entire office Christine is chosen to prosecute She is assigned the DA's top investigator BAT is already working for her But she needs to hire another attorney to take over the current cases while she is a Special Prosecutor for the Cook County DA It appears she has found the perfect candidate Reserving judgement In the meantime and unbeknownst to the family Christine and Sonny's son is practically a computer geniusUnlike most boys his age rather than get into trouble Jaime is in his room coding He has developed a program that can detect lies much like one of my favorite show Lie to Me sadly canceled He has even copyrighted it all without his parent's knowledge I bet there are tons of parents who wish their son to do this behind closed doorsThe very first person he tried it on was lying through his teeth Which the reader already knowsChristine used the oldest prosecutors trick in the world First one who talks gets the best deal She got names but one of those names belongs to a really nasty dude even at his tender yearsSeriously I have read all the books in which Christine has appeared and already I am amazed at some of the things we learn about her in this bookXFBI is back on the job Personally I thought they should have stayed there after the closeness she had with Thaddeus Too little too late unfortunately Christine is a wonderful Special Prosecutor Which is exactly why defense attorneys tell their clients to shut their mouths The ending absolutely blew me away I never would have dreamed this ending was coming Never ever But thinking about it with Christine really nothing should surprise a reader Sisters in Law does not mean what a reader may think And that's exactly why this book is so good Another must read A Tense Aggressively Thrilling Legal NovelIn this outstanding novel Lawyer Christine Susmann can fight hard for her clients in and outside of the courtroom Previously she had served in Ira and sad memories being held in Russia She can battle in the courtroom with confidence She takes on the case of a young woman who had been sexually abused at a university frat party The perpetrators will do anything to stay out of jail Christine just may have to take the fight outside of the courtroom Justice can also be achieved outside the law This story is extremely well written and very exciting You'll not want to put it down Highly recommend This is the First book I read about Christine as an attorney and it was excellent The story was very timely using the Date Rape situation in Private College Campus the attitude of the Rich people who committed crimes It was interesting seeing Christine as the head of her own Law firm and her home life with her Handicapped son daughter and Blue Collar husband Tragedy strikes Christine along with temptation to cheat on her husband The storylines were wrapped up very neatly and I look forward to the next book in this series PageturnerThere just is never much one can say that would cause you to not like about a John Ellsworth book This one particularly is a definite page turner I love Christine I love her assurance and confidence and ability to out maneuver those who are so sure they have their vengeance by the tailRead it You will want to run the gamut of John's books I have been through them twice Wow How did I miss John Ellsworth?I've read many legal thrillers but there is so much to this story The characters are well drawn the dialog strong and believable There are several sub plots which kept my attention I appreciated learning about the law and courtroom procedure I was happy to see there is a second book in this series and many other series as well I'll definitely follow this author This is a tuff story of a college teen rape You immediately get drawn in with both hatred and emotions and it never lets up You want those perpetrators caught and locked up We go through a lot but they eventually get arrested Then we have our day in court really good stuff goes on not to spoil the storySome people get killed not everyone believes in justice they rather ensure itThe real Christine comes out in the end A masterful job Ellsworth 5 The way this book began I didn't think I was going to read it so I put it aside and read others Because John Ellsworth wrote it I came back to it and it turned into another of his excellent books The subject matter in the beginning is difficult to get through but once you do the book is well worth reading I rate it 5 stars Not worth the timeThe writing was clear and precise and addressed a serious problem long overlooked ignored or covered up 2 starsThe plot sub plots and compilation of them was almost ludicrous as was the persona of the female protagonist A female author would never create such an unbelievable character
