Présentation de l'éditeur

Criminal defense lawyers must make their peace with one harsh fact of life: most of their clients are guilty.

But when William Tucker, a celebrated and self-centered star college football player, is suddenly arrested and charged with the brutal rape and murder of a college coed two years before, his estranged father, Frank Tucker, a drunken, broken-down, beach-bum ex-criminal defense lawyer, cannot believe his son is guilty. No father can. So he must find a way to sober up and save his son from the death penalty sought by an ambitious district attorney. And father and son learn that only three things in life are certain: death, taxes, and a father's love for his son.


Daily Mail (UK): "There cannot be any dispute. Gimenez has taken over John Grisham's mantle. . . . His work is now faster and fresher than Grisham, his characters are stronger, and his plot lines reek of tomorrow's headlines."

Weekend Sport (UK): Same brilliant storyteller, brand new character to follow. Gimenez is a great and growing writer who hasn't let his readers down yet, and doesn't look likely to."

The Australian: "Mark Gimenez writes colloquially smart dialogue but plots like an old master."

Houston Press: "Gimenez's writing is explosive, fast-paced, and filled with unexpected plot twists that keep readers guessing right up to the last page."

Civilian-Reader (UK): "Gimenez's novels are gripping, intense thrillers."

Oamuru Mail (New Zealand): "Gimenez is a thriller writer of quality."

CrimeSquad.com (UK): "As ever, Gimenez is highly recommended, impossible to put down and definitely not to be missed. . . . Gimenez' stature continues to grow."

The Courier-Mail (Australia): "Mark Gimenez already has a reputation as a fine thriller writer."

Book-of-the-Month club: "Boy can this guy tell a story!"

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A page turner however... 15 mars 2014

I initially gave this one 5 stars but upon reflection 4 stars is more accurate. I was clouded by the fact that I read this in one sitting, not being able to put this down but having had 24 hours to reflect, 5 stars was excessive.

I have read all of Gimenez's work and enthusiastically purchase and read his new offerings. I love reading about Texas football and the references to Friday Nights Lights put a smile on my face.

Problem with this was the character development just wasn't there by comparison to his previous novels. Francis's character was fully explored but that of William and the supporting cast seemed a little one dimensional. Frank's 'Camel Club' shall I call them, were not individually fully explored and I still had to double check whom each one was at the end of the novel. Additionally, the romance didn't seem to develop at all and was really thrust upon the reader for the sake of what felt like ticking a box and adding to Frank's character.

If you haven't read a Gimenez novel before you will definitely enjoy this, particularly if you want to bit of insight to the life of a professional athlete. I can't help but think that this is not up to the lofty heights of The Common Lawyer, the Perk and The Color of Law (The Perk being my personal favourite. Still waiting for the sequel Mark!!!).

Still worth the very cheap price of admission and a very enjoyable read.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Gimenez is one of my favorite recent authors 10 août 2014

Gimenez is one of my favorite recent authors. I have recommended his books to many friends. He brings Texas history and contemporary Texas to life with wonderful commentary and fallible characters. However, this book is a huge disappointment. Contrived plot and way too much non-meaningful bad language. Won't be recommended this one, even to my football loving friends.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 What a huge disappointment! 30 mai 2014
Par David W Strelitz - Publié sur Amazon.com

This author has written several very entertaining novels but this is not one of them. One gets the sense that he wasn't sure whether he was trying to write a comedy or something more serious. Worse is the thought he is mailing it in because this book was garbage from beginning to end. Incredible that this is the same author who gave us The Governors Wife. The plot is thin, the characters are overblown and the overriding reaction is one of disappointment.

Way too much time spent on football, without any new info or insight. This is one of the "I'd like my money back" books.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 A predictable line 15 avril 2014
Par D. Smith - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
The story is about a football hero, with good detail about football. The story does not seem credible and one almost expects what comes next. The killing and investigation into the death of fan, is almost secondary until the middle to end. The end result is so obvious, so no suspense at all. The is the second book by Mark Gimenez I have been disappointed in, and will probably not buy any of his books again.
