Présentation de l'éditeur

Unlike her much younger sister Nora, attorney Amanda Cross has worked hard for everything she has - which isn't much. But the tables turn when the evidence in the grisly murder of a partner's wife at a prestigious law firm points to Nora. Abandoned by the legal community, Nora reluctantly turns to her sister for help. Armed with a tenacious spirit, no leads, no experience in defending a murder charge, Amanda has to free her sister from what the D.A. claims is an open-and shut case. With the help of a handsome assistant-for-hire with a chip on his shoulder, this outgunned lawyer peels away the protective layers surrounding some very upright types to reveal intentions that seem to be beyond reproach, but are, in fact, beyond malice.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Legal thriller with exciting twists and turns 23 juin 2010
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com

What happens when two sisters, who are as different as night and day - complete opposites who don't share the same values, get caught up in a murder trial? In Beyond Malice, hard working, down-to-earth attorney Amanda Cross takes on the case of Nora Royce, her younger, more beautiful and privileged sister. Besides being an exciting legal thriller with twists and turns that keep you guessing, the story explores the relationship between two sisters who struggle with their ability to trust each other. Rebecca Forster fills her writing with vivid imagery and fully realized characters that come to life and give the reader the feeling of actually `being there'. Add to this the idea that the villain actually lives up to the book's title of being Beyond Malice and you have a page-turner you won't be able to put down.

I usually don't like a lot of backstory and description, however, this author is extremely skilled in the way she writes and paints her story, and Beyond Malice actually held my attention and was a story I lost myself in.
There were times I felt like I was reading Lisa Scottoline and other times I felt I was reading Grisham - so if Lisa and John got together and had a baby, Rebecca Forster would be their literary child!
I also loved the sister connection - the family dynamic really added to the story.
Highly Recommend!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Highly recommend! 7 septembre 2010

This books starts out with an introduction of a "good old boys" legal firm where women are still the "little ladies" who are secretaries' and second class citizens. When one of the partner's wife is murdered; the mistress of a partner, the only female associate of the firm is arrested. Her sister, Amanda must step in to help her, but her legal skills are not quite up to defending a murder case. This book started out good, and just got better as I read it. About half way through it I could not put it down until I finished it. The relationship between Amanda and Mark is so honest, at one point I wanted to reach through the book and slap Mark for Amanda. But then the next morning his gift for her melted my heart. I highly recommend this book. It will keep you wondering who did it, and rooting for Amanda to succeed.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Stunning Story of Overcoming All Odds 9 juin 2012
Par grammy1 - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
I have read other books by Rebecca Forster. I love her style, and the intrigue she puts into her characters and stories. But I will cry from the roof tops, Beyond Malice is one of the finest murder mysteries I have ever read!

We start with the premise. It is the year 1892 in San Francisco, Walter Dimsdale and Franklin Morris establish a Law Partnership of Dimsdale and Morris. In 1906 the offices were leveled by earthquake, and they moved down to Los Angeles. Mott was brought on with the death of Dimsdale, and today Dimsdale Morris and Mott still is the legal name of the company, run by four Senior Partners, Oliver Hedding, Don Forrester, Peter Sweeney and Lucas Mallory.

DM&M hosted three glorious days called 'Retreat' where every one of the Partners both Senior, Junior and Associates, some secretaries and paralegals, mingled with their spouses to be `seen.'

Nora Royce was a female lawyer being fast tracked to partner, her mentor being Lucas Mallory. Nora had it all, beauty and brains. She finished third in a class of 500 in Stanford, second in Harvard and had clerked for the Chief Justice of California's Supreme Court. Nora Royce was probably the most hated employee through jealousy, that worked at DM&M.

Before the Ballroom doors were opened to announce dinner, the elevator doors opened and out stepped Ruth Mallory. All eyes were on her as they watched her fall, bleeding, trying to crawl to her husband Lucas. It was before him she took her last breath.

The cast grows as we meet Amanda Cross, nice to look at, nice to talk to, almost 40, divorced, a lawyer in Century City. She was sharing an office and trying to make it on her own. She had to take the bar twice to pass, had worked in the DA's office and now was trying to eek out a living in her own practice. She cast no great dreams about herself, she felt she was mediocre and wanted to be known as the dependable one. Then the phone call came.

Nora Royce had been arrested for the murder of Ruth Mallory. She called the only one she could, when all turned away from her at the good company of Dimsdale. Morris and Mott. She called Amanda Cross, her sister.

The relationship between the two women is heartbreaking and just adds `more' to this story. Amanda was 12 years older than Nora. I can relate as a sibling, when my parents had me, times were tougher than when my sister was born. I had homemade stuff, and my sister didn't, and we were only 5 years apart. Well 12 years apart was like being in two different families.

Each girl actually was like an only child and never set up any kind of relationship except Amanda being tremendously jealous of Nora and all she got and achieved. There was Nora, feeling left behind by someone she wanted to know but didn't. The saddest thing I think I read was Nora telling Amanda about their parents worrying about her, and Nora's only wish was that they worried or talked about her when she wasn't home. So sad. This trial will be the challenge of both of their lives.

Mark Fleming is introduced through a friend while the three share a table at lunch. He inserts foot in mouth reading a news article about Nora and doing a rant about her. After wearing the newspaper and a pepsi, he comes to Amanda and offers his services to help. He is a jack of all trades, not passing the bar and losing his fiancé the same day. She decided she did not want a loser and then he gave up trying. He has established himself in many areas doing a multitude of jobs that might be helpful.

One other player joins the team, Edward Ramsey. He worked for the firm and comes on board telling them he quit and can be of help. So now you know all the players, the scene is set. We don't care if we solve the murder, all we have to do is cause reasonable doubt.

On a shoe string budget, with a ton of hutzpa, Amanda berating herself, her life, and her feeling of helplessness, still pushes forward. She is a bull dog, never taking no for an answer, even when the case is railroaded, the DA, her old boss, puts the trial on the the fast track with no delays or continuances allowed.

I could not put this book down. I tried to do things over the weekend and could get nothing accomplished, it was all the Book. Please read it, enjoy it, tell your friends about it...

Befor I began writing this review, I spent some time reading the other reviews.
SEQUENCE OF MS FORSTERS WORKS...
Hostile Witness
Silent Witness
Privileged Witness

NON SEQUENTIAL WORKS....
Keeping Counsel
Character Witness
Beyond Malace
The Mentor

It is not necessary to read Ms Forsters works in sequence because she does an excellent job of tieing her characters together and providing background where ever necessary.

A quick comment on Beyond Malace.... The first chapter will immediately grab you and encourage you to read more. The middle of the book is integral to the plot line and the character development. The final third of the book is almost impossible to lay down without finishing the book. If you stopped reading Beyond Malice, prior to finishing the book, you missed the most exciting part of the story where all of the loose threads come together and present the reader with an ending that was not expected.

This book will be especially meaningful to any reader who understands the power & importance of Senior Partner and Mentor to a career. IT IS THE BEST BOOK YET, and I have read six of the seven available books. I am anxiously awaiting the next volume in the Witness series which is due out soon.
