Présentation de l'éditeur

For Sabre Orin Brown, life is good; she has it all...or would have, if only she could solve the mysterious disappearance of her brother. The search for her brother and her career as a Juvenile Court Attorney collide when she defends a nine-year-old whose father will go to any length to obtain custody.
Sabre finds herself immersed in a case with too many unanswered questions. Her quest for the truth takes her coast to coast and five years into the past. Confronted with mysterious clues and strange occurrences, Sabre is threatened by someone wanting to make her suffer the unbearable anguish of losing everything--including her life.
As Sabre's passion to find the answers intensifies, she discovers a twisted history of desperation, deceit, and revenge. And she discovers how obscure and treacherous the truth can be.

En savoir plus sur l'auteur

Teresa Burrell has dedicated her life to helping children and their families in both the courtroom and the classroom.

As an attorney in San Diego, Burrell maintained a private law practice for twelve years, which specialized in domestic, criminal, and civil cases. Her work in juvenile court focused on representing abused minors and juvenile delinquents. Burrell has received several awards and special recognition from the San Diego Volunteer Lawyers for her countless hours of pro bono work with children and their families.

Burrell has also enjoyed a satisfying career as a teacher. She has taught children of all ages with diverse backgrounds and special needs. After creating an after-school program that kept kids off the street, she received a community service award.

Now in semi-retirement in California, Burrell continues to educate groups about social issues impacting children and write novels, many of which are inspired by actual legal cases. She is the author of The Advocate Series which now contains seven novels, The Advocate, The Advocate's Betrayal, The Advocate's Conviction, The Advocate's Dilemma, The Advocate's Ex Parte, The Advocate's Felony, and The Advocate's Geocache.

Burrell has recently written a children's book, along with illustrator, Zack Settle, called Gaspar, the Flatulating Ghost. This is the first in a series of books that helps children deal with daily problems they have to confront.

Pour tous ceux qui s'y connaissent un peu ou veulent s'y connaître dans le système judiciaire américain. La société américaine est assez bien dépeinte. Le suspense est 'torride'

2.0 étoiles sur 5 plutot banal 18 avril 2013
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
J'ai trouvé le livre plutôt banal (je ne l'ai pas terminé). Des clichés, des relations humaines et amicales tellement idéales, parfaites, dignes de l'école maternelle. Je suis une fan de romans policiers, et même dans un train, ce livre m'aurait endormie ...

Need a break from stories about ivory tower law firms and want to get down and dirty in the streets? My wife is a legal thriller junkie and told me it was the best novel she read in years. I do not usually read her type of books but told her I would see how I liked it. Well I did not like it, I loved it and finished the book in three days. The story tugs on your heart while you are on the edge of your seat, stange combination, but it works and works well.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A very enjoyable read 31 mai 2012
Par Devil in a Blue Dress - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
I actually met the author in a Barnes & Nobel and bought this book partly so as not to hurt her feelings by turning her down. I didn't read the book for two years later. I am a Sue Grafton fan, so I couldn't help but compare The Advocate to Grafton's Kinsey Millhone series. The Advocate was every bit as good as Grafton's early stories and I enjoyed it very much. Obviously, as a series progresses there is more development and one becomes more attached to the on-going characters. I look forward to reading the next two books in the Advocate series, which I have just downloaded in E-book format.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Great story, lots of twists! 26 mars 2013
Par Carol H. Passar - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
It was a great story, and had plenty of twists and turns to keep me guessing. The viewpoint changed often, too, which helped keep my interest. Occasionally, there was a coincidence or small plot hole that was a bit stretched, but overall it was good.

I also liked the fact that the author refrained from throwing in some contrived romance, but instead concentrated on the story.

The writing style was a bit flat, but with more practice, I'm sure the author will improve.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Reads like a first semester creative writing assignment 1 novembre 2013
Par Stacy - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
I'm an attorney and was really irritated at first because the description of courtroom procedures was just wrong. Even the words used to describe some of the parties and the roles of various attorneys and courtroom staff were wrong. I could get past that, though, because the legal proceedings pretty quickly became background noise thrown in just to remind the reader that main character was an attorney. You wouldn't have known otherwise because nothing she did was remotely appropriate for her role as a lawyer.

This read like a first-semester creative writing class assignment. Terrible dialogue! The author should read her dialogue out loud and rewrite the parts that do not sound like sentences any human being anywhere on earth has ever or would ever utter.

The depiction of the relationship between the main character, Sabre, and her friend, Bob, was goofy. They talked to each other like lovers and were constantly hugging or touching each other, which would have been fine except for the frequent mentions of Bob's wife and kids (who never appeared in the book).

Here is one example of the things in this book that irritated me: In the beginning of the book, Bob and Sabre called each other "honey" several times, but apparently that was just to set up a plot point. When another character wrote a letter that began, "Dear Honey," which was not the addressee's name, Sabre shrugged it off because she and Bob called each other "honey," but after that they never called each other "honey" again.

I do admire this author's persistence in completing and publishing this book. She thought up a story that was mildly entertaining, though completely unrealistic, and got it onto paper. Perhaps a good editor could have helped her turn it into a good read. If she got some editorial help, the later books in the series might be worth reading. I'm not going to take a chance on them; I'll stick to Scott Turow for my legal thrillers.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 great legal thriller 2 août 2009
Par Harriet Klausner - Publié sur Amazon.com
Juvenile Court attorney Sabre Brown is contented with her life especially her work protecting children from people who might harm them. The only negative in her life is her brother Ron who remains missing having disappeared without a trace. Currently, she is working a case involving ten year old Alexis Murdock and two years old Jamie Smith; both are staying at the Jordon Receiving Home while the police investigate their respective parent Gaylord Murdock and his battered pregnant girlfriend Peggy Smith. Peggy initially blames Gaylord for hitting her, but quickly changes her tune when she realizes she will have to press charges.

Gaylord obeys court orders determined to prove he is a fit father so he can regain custody of Alexis. When Sabre talks with Alexis, the frightened tweener asks if she must go home. That question leaves Sabre wondering if Murdock is the upright citizen he claims to be. Someone is also harassing Sabre. Calls with no voice on the other end at any time night or day; items in her home are misplaced or lost; and a bat was tossed into her office through the mail slot. Finally she finds a lizard in her bed with all her doors and windows shut. Sabra discovers Peggy has a daughter Honey who has goes missing yet no police report is filed. She fears what happened to Honey will happen to Alexis and Jamie once they go home, but the law is on the side of Gaylord, so far.

Readers will admire dedicated Sabre, a strong advocate of protecting the young as she deals with adult predators to prevent them from abusing children. Not always easy as the law can be on the side of the beast; still she goes the extra kilometers to try keeping the kids safe. The story line is fast-paced and filled with action though the assault on Sabre adds suspense, but also detracts from a great legal thriller as the lives of children are at stake.
