Présentation de l'éditeur

When attorneys Vernetta Henderson and Neddy McClain are tapped to take on the biggest case of their careers, they are less than thrilled about working together. Their strained relationship, however, is the least of their problems. Their socialite client—charged with the brutal murder of her husband—is demanding an immediate dismissal of the case. But a ruthless prosecutor is determined to make sure that doesn't happen. Forced to fight a common enemy, the two women close ranks and, in the process, develop a bond that sees them through the uncertainties of trial, the pain of betrayal and pressures neither could have imagined.

Le livre ne m'a pas tellement plu. Il s'agit d'une avocate qui prend la défense d'une femme accusée de meurtre de son mari.
Elle défend et gagne la cause, mais c'est un monde d'argent et de pouvoir, de décadence.
Pas vraiment agréable à lire.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 (RAW Rating: 4.5) - It Is What It Is. . . Or Is It? 2 février 2006
Par The RAWSISTAZ Reviewers - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
A man's infidelity can cause a woman to do many things. The hurt, pain, and betrayal of it all may or may not reach the boiling point. In EVERY REASONABLE DOUBT, debut author Pamela Samuels-Young, presents Nina Montgomery, a wealthy African-American socialite who knows of her husband's inability to stay committed to her and their marriage. Yet, she loves him. When he's found dead in a luxury hotel in town, she becomes the prime suspect.

Vernetta Henderson is a lawyer at the top of her game. After winning a five million dollar verdict for her client in a discrimination case, she's sure she is on the fast-track to partner at the law firm. Despite her husband's urging to spend more time with him and start having children, she isn't quite capable of prioritizing her life so that her home life comes first. When she's handed the Montgomery case, she keeps it a secret, waiting to tell him at the right moment. Unfortunately the right moment doesn't come before the media announces her role on the case and Vernetta isn't sure her marriage will outlast the trial.

Neddy McClain is a criminal defense attorney and the only other African-American female at their law firm and seems mad at the world. She's going through a messy divorce with a man who betrayed her more times than she cares to admit, so in working on Nina Montgomery's case, it's easy for her to understand just what the other woman is going through. Though her client says she's innocent, she doesn't worry over the guilt or innocence, but teaches Vernetta that their job is to show the lack of evidence needed for the jury to find reasonable doubt and find their client not guilty.

This case explodes in the media with speculations of whodunit and stands out because it is the first time an all-Black, female defense team handled such a high-profile case, down to the show-boating D.A. who is prosecuting the case and also the judge. Yet, the storyline also revolves around the personal lives of the women and how one must take time to try to understand others instead of making assumptions and painting them by their appearance alone.

EVERY REASONABLE DOUBT is an insightful and engrossing legal mystery with great dialogue, authentic characters, unexpected twists, and laugh-out-loud humor. It was great to finally see a legal thriller/mystery with an African-American female lead -- a story with characters who have real problems and work toward resolving them realistically. . . I loved it!

Par Loni Smith - Publié sur Amazon.com

drum roll . . . Pamela Samuels-Young

This story takes place in my neck of the woods (Cali). The comparison of Mrs. Young's writing to that of Terry MacMillan and John Grisham is understated. It is my opinion that she is a much better writer than the above-referenced duo. Her writing may have been compared to MacMillan because of the chicklit dialogue; and Grisham because of the legal aspect. I think it's a good combination and a helluva new genre she's created where chicklit meets legal drama. Although Grisham writes more in a legal "thriller" manner and Young in a legal "drama" aspect.

I loved the way she created the character Jefferson. He seemed so real. I cannot begin to explain the vendetta I carried for David -- the conniving, backstabbing, skeezer! However, his character was inevitable. I truly enjoyed the way Young dialogues Jefferson in chapter 40 (I think) when he talks to this "johnson." What an interesting concept. What surprises me is that during this awakening conversation and confession, Vernetta never once threw any of his prior sexual encounters in his face. I guess she felt that all of his sowing oats was before her time.

My absolute favorite part of all was the fact that Vernetta could be so naive to believe anything David could say. She knew that he was low enough to set her up in any situation. His agenda was so obvious. Particularly, during the preliminary hearing where he coerced her into saying "objection . . . hearsay." That snake! I actually scowled at the reading of that scene. The prosecutor, Julie, wasn't as mean as her character was written. Actually, I admired her to some degree.

Although I had it figured out after the first few chapters "who really done it." Even before it was mentioned, I knew about the "maid." It was too obvious. Lawton's murderer was a surprise.

Tina Montgomery was something else. Point blank. The climatical conclusion on the murder of Mr. Max Montgomery was superior.

O'Reilly really got on my nerve with his wishy washy self. He didn't care about his employees. He could care whether they lived or died. All he was concerned about was his precious lawfirm that his grandfather birth. I had hoped that Neddy and Vernetta would have left and started up their own practice. With their experience and impeccable reputation in criminal and civil litigation, I think they'd have a helluva successful practice.

My favorite character, hands down, is Special. The girl is "special." She broke the ice by keeping it comical. I actually thought for a moment that she and Jefferson would've made a better match. They were so much alike. Although Vernetta and Jefferson were such opposites, the old saying goes that opposites attract but those kinds of relationships usually don't last. You have to have common ground to make it last. I appreciate how Vernetta was this high profile attorney married to a common electrician with a foul mouth and not married to some other attorney or cardiologist. It brought entertainment to the story, but again, there is no common ground there. I also enjoyed Special's non-certified psychoanalysis on "what a man wants," and "how a woman should treat her man."

Even though there were a lot of stories going on simultaneously, it didn't throw you off track. Overall, the characters were 3-dimensional with their own voices and I truly enjoyed reading this love-triangle murder drama. I sure hope Young doesn't suffer with the sophomore jinx cause she did an outstanding job as a debut novelist. It helps that she is an attorney by profession because I actually did not read any distracting grammatical errors or misspelled words. I'm sure this expertise comes from years of writing briefs and proofing them. I've been told that some Judges don't play when it comes to submitting legal docs with typos. Besides, I'm convinced that Young's editor must really appreciate her writing and proofreading skills. It makes her job less stressful.

The reason for this novel falling short of five stars is that while I am very joyful that the conclusion of V & J was a happily ever after, it was just too corny and predictable.

However, if I had to choose to read a book between McMillan and Young --I'd choose Young.

If this book doesn't turn into a bestseller, it'll be because of a lousy job her publisher is doing to market, promote and publicize this recommended novel. A whopping 4.5 on the SmithScale.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Definitely not the trial of the century 9 mai 2006
Par Kristy M. Phillips - Publié sur Amazon.com

Pamela Samuels-Young obviously draws from her experience as an attorney in Every Reasonable Doubt. Vernetta, a young employment attorney is paired with Neddy, a more seasoned criminal attorney in a high profile case. They are tasked with defending Tina Montgomery, scorned wife of local businessman Max Montgomery.

In the midst of the trial we learn of Neddy's pending divorce and loss of her only trial. To top it off, Neddy's husband Lawton is found dead and Neddy becomes a prime suspect. Vernetta, has her own share of troubles and her marriage is in trouble.

I kept thinking that this book had one more turn to take. I was way off. I don't want to give too much away but I think I would have enjoyed more suspense and thrills at the end. The conclusion was way too predictable.

Par Black Butterfly Review - Publié sur Amazon.com

Every Reasonable Doubt by Pamela Samuels-Young is a wonderful way to introduce a debut novel to the literary community.

This debut mystery/suspense novel by Ms. Samuels-Young is a page turning thriller that has you vacillating between suspects.

Vernetta Henderson is a high powered African American female attorney with a very prestigious law firm. The story starts with her winning a monumental case that makes her as recognizable as the late Johnnie Cochrane, not to mention placing her on the fast track to partnership. The excitement of winning such a large case has Vernetta on cloud nine, but she receives a wake up call when her husband tells her that this is the perfect time to become parents and presents her with a beautifully wrapped gift...an ovulation kit.

Vernetta's husband, Jefferson Jones, is a hard working electrician that is feeling neglected because his wife spends most of her time in court or at the office. He realizes that if they don't start a family soon, it may never happen. Unfortunately, Jefferson discovers that Vernetta's career is the least of his opposition.

Tina Montgomery, suspected of murdering her husband, has retained the legal services of Vernetta's law firm. The firm has sold her on the concept of their newest "dream team" which consist of two very talented African American attorneys; Vernetta being one and the other is ex- public defender Neddy McClain.

Neddy McClain, attorney extraordinaire, and Vernetta have what you would call a hate- hate relationship. Both women dislike one another for reasons unknown, other than the normal female jealousy issues which in my opinion were based on sex and race. With that aside, they develop a working relationship that actually turns into friendship with Vernetta supporting Neddy when she becomes the number one suspect in the death of her estranged husband.

This novel is packed with several stories occurring simultaneously but all successfully interlocking like a skillfully placed jigsaw puzzle. Identifying a protagonist was difficult because although Vernetta's name was the first one that you identify, each of these characters were developed enough to stand alone. I personally found the story to be intriguing, suspenseful and at certain points comical.

Ms. Samuels-Young is an extremely talented author and I look forward to being captivated by her next book and those that will certainly follow.

Angela Langsbury has nothing on you ...

The book was EXCELLENT. Pamela, I really enjoyed the book and cannot wait until your next murder mystery is out. You should make Neddy and Vernetta the leading characters in a sequel of murder and mayham. Maybe they can establish a law practice of their own......

It was great reading. It kept me on the edge of my seat. I felt has though I was actually seeing a movie and connected to the characters as they lived their experiences. I finished it in less than a week.
