Présentation de l'éditeur

Governments, hospitals, and industry use computerized industrial control systems to remotely monitor and control elevators, electricity, alarms, surveillance systems, and more. It's convenient and efficient. And potentially deadly ... Assistant U.S. Attorney Aroostine Higgins put her personal life on hold to join the Department of Justice's elite Criminal Division. Now she's prosecuting two men accused of attempting to bribe a foreign government official. But everything's going wrong. Her pretrial motion vanishes from the federal court's electronic docketing system. Her apartment catches fire. Routine dental surgery turns into a near-death experience. When Aroostine's past comes crashing into her present, her most critical vulnerability is exploited and she finally admits she isn't simply suffering a string of bad luck. An unseen enemy is determined to destroy her--and the only man she's ever loved--unless she finds him first. Critical Vulnerability is the latest whip-smart legal thriller by USA TODAY Bestselling Author Melissa F. Miller.

USA TODAY Bestselling Author Melissa F. Miller was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Although life and love led her to Philadelphia, Baltimore, Washington, D.C., and, ultimately, South Central Pennsylvania, she secretly still considers Pittsburgh home.

In college, she majored in English literature with concentrations in creative writing poetry and medieval literature and was STUNNED, upon graduation, to learn that there's not exactly a job market for such a degree. After working as an editor for several years, Melissa returned to school to earn a law degree. She was that annoying girl who loved class and always raised her hand. She's worked for major international law firms, clerked for a federal judge, and ultimately started a two-person law firm with her lawyer husband.

Powered by coffee, she writes her legal thrillers while pretending not to hear her three young children wreaking havoc. She has a very lazy dog and three hyperactive gerbils.

Wonderful Story 30 mars 2014
Par TomW - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle
Aroostine Higgins is an attorney in the same vein as Sasha McCandless. She is of Native American extraction and uses her honed instincts rather interestingly. She is the lead attorney in what was thought to be a "slam dunk" case until things started happening and she almost gets killed. This is a legal "thriller" in just about every sense of the word. A wonderful story of deceit, electronic treachery and legal mayhem. I am looking forward to more about this wonderful character, Aroostine, whose geneological roots stem from an area of the country where I spent time as a teenager.

Yet another wonderful book by Melissa Miller 30 mars 2014
Par Cliffj - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle
Attorney Aroostine Higgins is given her big chance to be the lead government attorney in a case that is against two company reps for a company that already settled with the government.
Her week dealing with the case keeps getting worse as does her personal life...and then it gets dangerous.
This story has no slow parts. I suggest you do not start it unless you have cleared your calendar for a day or two. Once you start you will not put it down.
As will all Melissa Miller books, I now want the next one now. Luckily the new Sasha McCandless book will follow soon as will a new Aroostine story. I can't wait.

Is This The Start Of A New Series ?? 11 avril 2014
Par Cecile Croghan - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle
I really hope this it the start of a new series. I loved this book. I had met Aroostine in the Sasha McCandless (sp) series and was very happy to have the character more fully developed. I was glad she made the decision she did at the end( no spoilers from me ).

The storyline was quite good and easy to follow. The writing was as always excellent. No typos I caught and I almost always do. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes legat thrillers or just thrillers in general, along with the Sasha and Leo series.

She's no Sasha, but Aroostine is pretty good too! 1 août 2014
Par John J. Franco - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
I've enjoyed the Sasha McCandless books that Melissa Miller writes, so I figured I'd check this one out. It's a spin-off that follows a new character (Aroostine Higgins) who was previously introduced in one of the Sasha books (#4, I think).

I do think that Miller does a good job of making this a standalone book. Aroostine lives in DC, not Pittsburgh, and she has her own skills and her own faults. She does share some similarities with Sasha (female lawyer, always getting into weird situations, a little too driven for her own good, a little too independent for her own good) but stands well enough on her own.

This book follows Aroostine as she suffers a series of unfortunate "mishaps" that turn out to be related. She's working on a case against SystemSource (I think that's right(?)) that seems like a slam dunk, but it isn't. It turns out that her actions are being controlled and monitored electronically. Ultimately, she has to find her way out of the sticky situation using her skills as a tracker.

This book was fast paced and kept me interested. Even though the characters and the plot were different, it still had the same goodness that the Sasha books have. It was awfully convenient that the plot required Aroostine to do the one thing she was good at, and I wonder how Melissa Miller could create another Aroostine book if she wanted to, without using a really twisted plot to get her into another situation.

Then again, maybe it's a one-off, or maybe Sasha and Aroostine could team up on a case that needs trackers AND martial artists

Fear not: Aroostine won't disappoint you 12 mai 2014
Par Asphodelia - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle
Like all loyal fans of a fictional character, I had my reservations when Melissa F Miller announced a spin-off on her extremely successful Sasha McCandless series to expand on a minor character who had appeared in one of her previous novels. What if a new series spelt the end for Sasha - what if the new protagonist turned out to be unlikable? Or - worse of all - what if Miller stopped writing Sasha altogether?

I shouldn’t have worried: Critical Vulnerability, the first novel featuring Aroostine Higgins, not only didn’t disappoint, but far exceeded my expectations. I didn’t think that it would be possible for Miller to create another strong female character who worked in the same profession as Sasha (albeit working on the public rather than private practice side) without running the risk of the two heroines being suspiciously similar. But of course, Miller is a brilliant writer and Aroostine is as different as it gets from our old friend Sasha. Unlike Sasha, Aroostine doesn’t like coffee, goes to bed by 9:00 PM and knows how to track wild animals. Like Sasha, however, Aroostine has the ability to attract trouble, and this book is similar in structure to a Sasha McCandless novel: plenty of law, suspense and danger. If you’re a Sasha fan, you won’t be disappointed. If you are not familiar with the series, you can still read CV and it will make sense, because Miller gives you enough background to introduce new readers to the material and to refresh the memory of her existing readers.

And whether you are a new reader or one of Sasha’s fans (we like to call ourselves ‘Associates’ though), this is a really great read, which kept me up way past my bedtime so that I could find out the end. I’m already looking forward to the next one.
