Présentation de l'éditeur

IMPACT: NO. 1 BESTSELLING HARD-BOILED MYSTERY

A Jetliner Crashes in the Everglades.
A Billion-Dollar Lawsuit: Negligence or Terrorism?
The Defense: Kill Anyone, Even a Supreme Court Justice, to Win the Case.


Supreme Court Justice Sam Truitt takes the bench with high ideals, lofty intentions...and a troubled marriage. Lisa Fremont, his stunning and brilliant law clerk, has a dark secret in her past. If Lisa doesn't get Truitt's vote in multi-million dollar case involving a catastrophic airplane crash, she'll be killed. The Justice, too. IMPACT is a tale of seduction and betrayal, of passion and greed. Truitt, who has always followed the rules, and Lisa, who never has, join together to battle those who live by no law at all.

IMPACT, published in hardcover as "9 Scorpions," was the inspiration for "First Monday," the television drama starring James Garner and Joe Mantegna.

WHAT'S THE VERDICT ON IMPACT?

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Oh, Please! 25 janvier 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
I found 9 Scorpions too contrived. I read in an interview that Paul Levine wanted to write for a woman from a woman's point of view. Of course that woman is model-beautiful, a former stripper and a brilliant lawyer-to-be, living in a luxury apartment with a closet-full of expensive clothes, all paid for by a sugar daddy. And of course the man she's working for/falling in love with is charming, handsome and powerful (and in a bad marriage, natch). Yeah, real life going on here. It was ludicrous and stupid. Paul, stick to Jake.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 9 Scorpions. Great read. Informative. Entertaining. 3 juin 2001
Par Larry Moskowitz - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Poche|Achat vérifié
This is one of those rare books that enlightens while it entertains. The view of the inner sanctum of the U.S. Supreme Court reveals details not known by most Americans. The story is suspenseful and exciting; the characters are extremely well-drawn.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Decent audiobook fare, with an eye to thrilling 5 juillet 2003
Par Jonathan Burgoine - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Cassette
I listened to this abridged audiobook through an afternoon of housecleaning (hey, don't knock it 'till you try it). This was fairly decent. I'm not a huge fan of legal thrillers - I've only read one or two Grishams, and never before read Levine, but the storyline was a bit interesting and, to me at least, fresh in the choices of characters. A former stripper/bad girl, Lisa was rescued by Max, who supported her through law school and has just called Lisa in on a very big favour.

He's placing her with a Supreme Court Justice, and he wants her to sway his vote on an airline case in regards to a terrorist-related crash. But as Lisa learns more of just who Max is - and what he's done - and the case seems more and more of a conspiracy to hide the Airline's lies, she feels herself swaying in her loyalty, not to mention falling for the Justice in the first place.

This romantic angle between Lisa and the Supreme Court Justice that seemed a little forced on the abridged audio version - they fall into bed and love at about the same time, which is somewhat abrupt, and I was somewhat surprised at the time. Still, for thrills, this delivered - there's chases, gunfights, and everything one expects from a rough and tumble legal thriller with edge. Especially in audiobook format (and read well by Bamman), this was enjoyable.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Supreme (Court) Thriller 12 septembre 1998
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
9 Scorpions is a different Paul Levine novel. There's no sign of Jake Lassiter, but no shortage of unique characters. The dialogue is especially clever. Through the plot, the inner workings of airlines, trial courts, and the United States Supreme Court are shown. There's enough detail to move the plot, but not so much that you get bogged down on it. The action takes off quickly and then accelerates. You feel like you're one of the characters in one of the many times the protagonists (one a stripper turned Supreme Court clerk and the other an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court) are in personal jeapardy, which is often. The bad guys are very bad, with the primary bad guy one of the last people you'd ever want to meet. 9 Scorpions is a fast read and a great ride. I think it's the breakout novel for Paul Levine.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Totally unrealistic and very disappointing. 27 juillet 1999
Par J. Mendell - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Poche|Achat vérifié
One of the reasons I love mysteries is their ability to show aspects of life and society while telling a good story. I bought this book because I thought a mystery set in the Supreme Court would be very interesting. The bits and pieces about the court are there, but the writing is so contrived, and the main characters so unbelievable, that I couldn't bring myself to finish it. Supposedly the writer was writing from a woman's point of view, but this is a woman as only a man could imagine her, with little depth and everything caught up in sexuality. He repeatedly describes her physical appearance, what she's wearing, and how she's thinking about sex with the various men she's involved with. Her central conflict, whether to honor the law or her prior commitments, is phoney, and in any case is drowned out by the constant attention to when she's going to sleep with whom and why. The idea that she would scheme to get a clerkship just to affect the decision on one case coming before the court is beyond unbelievable. The plot itself is one note, with almost no changes in direction, only new episodes of (supposedly) scary violence to move it along.
