Présentation de l'éditeur

New Mexico attorney Tara Linley has always believed in the power and fairness of the law. All that changes when she takes on her best friend’s lover as a client. It is only after she reluctantly agrees to represent Bill Hamilton that Tara discovers the real reason he has sought her out and the shocking crime he has committed. Attorney/client privilege prevents Tara from warning her friend that her life is in danger and the District Attorney's political agenda blocks the only legal solution to her problem. Caught up in a web of escalating circumstances that threaten not only her professional reputation but her life, Tara finds herself at the mercy of her dangerously unstable client…a man who is growing more psychotic by the day.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Page-turning legal thriller with a true moral center. 7 octobre 1997
Par nwmb95b@prodigy.com - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Poche
As an attorney, I've read a lot of legal thrillers, and R.A.Forster's KEEPING COUNSEL ranks with the best. This story moves.
From the outset, we are pulled into the moral dilemma faced by Tara Linley, the lawyer who meets her best friend's new lover only to find herself ensnared by this charming man into defending him against criminal prosecution for a horrifying murder. Is he certifiably insane? Or merely a sexy but psychopathic killer who delights in manipulating his power over Tara and her vulnerable friend?

This book is full of thrills, both emotional and intellectual. When Tara is pitted against influential friends who pressure her to give her client up, she questions the very foundations on which her life was built. Surely her best friend's safety is more important than some technical vow she took when she was sworn in as a lawyer. But how can she live with herself if she doesn't honor the system she has sworn to uphold?

I finished it late last night, so I'm fresh from the excitement of this book. KEEPING COUNSEL dishes out danger, desire, and romance as it zips through this compelling story taken from an actual case. I couldn't put it down. R.A.Forster is going places--and I'm along for the ride.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Intense legal thriller 12 septembre 2010
Par Carole - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
My husband recommended this book and I couldn't put it down. This is a well paced legal thriller with a villian who stayed with me long after I stopped reading. Throughout the book I couldn't figure out if he was crazy or just evil, but either way he was really creepy. I loved the heroine, Tara, who struggles with her legal ethics as she tries to save her best friend from her evil boyfriend. When Bill, the boyfriend, retains Tara as his lawyer this invokes attorney-client privilege and she's the only one to whom he reveals his true nature. The characters really come to life and for a while I didn't think there was any good way this could end, but Rebecca Forster has a talent for surprises and I loved the way she ended this book. I'm glad I didn't see those ten year old, one star reviews before I read this. This is definitely worth downloading!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Tense, psychological/legal thriller 26 mai 2010
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
If the prologue doesn't suck you in, you shouldn't be reading this genre. This is an incredible psychological/legal thriller that kept me anxiously turning pages late into the night. The title refers to the attorney-client privilege of secrecy and the charming, yet deadly protagonist in Keeping Counsel knows how to use it when he retains his lover's best friend to represent him. The tense interplay between these two characters is reminiscent of Silence of the Lambs where the killer's compelling seductiveness barely conceals his creepy, unstable behavior. Torn between protecting her friend and upholding the law, Tara Linley walks a fine line between what's legal and what's right. Rebecca Forster's vivid descriptions and true-to-life characters jump off the page with incredible authenticity. This is one you do not want to miss.

I have read other novels by Rebecca Forster and I enjoyed them. This book had no plot. The characters were all shallow. The story was boring and there were no surprises. By the first 10% of the book you knew what could happen and it did. Save your money on this one.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Keeping Counsel Top of the Line Legal Thriller 22 juin 2011
Par Arthur J. Levine - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Poche
Rebecca Forester has crafted a wonderful legal thriller that will have you unable to put her book down as you read on to find out what will happen to Tara, a lawyer with a psycho killer named Bill for a client. She is in danger of abusing her status as a lawyer as she strives to protect her best friend Donna from this maniac without betraying the confidence the killer has burdened her with. The action was so intense I couldn't put it down and read right through the weekend to the startling end. Glad I did, but sorry the experience is over. Now I look forward to Rebecca's next novel with great anticipation. Hard to believe anything could top this, but with a talented wordsmith like Rebecca chances are she will.

The jeopardy that the killer puts Tara in provides for non-stop intense edge of your seat thrills and suspense. Not even Tara's boyfriend Ben can protest her from the mind-bending antics of the killer as he tries to intimidate her and threaten her, but Tara is too strong wiled to let him succeed. At the shocking conclusion I found myself wondering if the terror would ever end. You will too. Simply delicious action packed suspense. This one deserves five stars.
