Description du produit

Présentation de l'éditeur

Terry Flynt is a struggling legal clerk, desperately trying to get promoted. And then he is given the biggest opportunity of his career: to help defend a millionaire accused of murdering a woman in his hotel suite.

The only problem is that the accused man, Vernon James, turns out to be not only someone he knows, but someone he loathes. This case could potentially make Terry's career, but how can he defend a former friend who betrayed him so badly?

With the trial date looming, Terry delves deeper into Vernon's life and is forced to confront secrets from their shared past that could have devastating consequences for them both. For years he has wanted to witness Vernon's downfall, but with so much at stake, how can Terry be sure that he is guilty? And what choices must he make to ensure that justice is done?

Packed with twists, turns and an unforgettable trial scene, The Verdict is the most page-turning British legal thriller in many years.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Definitely worth reading 16 avril 2017

This is a long book, 2 MP3 disks. Really interesting story that kept me listening even though I didn't really like any of the characters, and that usually makes me abandon a book. I didn't like the accent the reader used for the main character and several other big characters. Perhaps it was realistic, but it really grated on my ears--a low-class accent. The main character was working in a law office as a temp, but as the story went on, he became part of a major criminal defense and met with the defendant, various other barristers, and judges and I wondered if such an accent wouldn't be an issue is such a situation. I am not an expert on British accents, but I have never heard a British person pronounce the name Terry as Terrah. If the character was posh, the accent the reader used was good.

I thought the work-related interplay was excellent.
I also thought that the investigation overlooked some obvious things.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Not in Grisham's League 27 mars 2016
Par Mr. August - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
This is a long novel, one page short of 500. It is a decent legal thriller with a solid plot. The author and this book have been publicized as the London John Grisham. How many times have I heard that exciting promotion? I am sorry but this author is not John Grisham either.

Grisham usually grabs the reader in the first few pages and then sets out to unfold a story, quickly with a solid cadence of prose and no dilly-dallying to prolong the denouement. Stone begins the novel interestingly enough with Vernon James as the young, ultra-rich businessman who after receiving an Ethical Person of the Year award (irony is cast), takes a striking, tall woman in a green dress to his room. Instead of a happy sexual encounter, she beats him up. Stone does a good job with this scene laying the groundwork for James’ incapacity and confusion. Later, a woman is found dead in his suite and James (known as VJ) is accused of murder.

Terry Flynt works as a legal clerk in the firm representing James’ defense (defence in England). No one at this prestigious firm is apparently aware of the history between Terry and Vernon. Flynt has a complicated personal history coupled with a heart-breaking past with Vernon, his boyhood best friend. Will the underdog clerk triumph? Or will he lose this job and possible chance in the legal field?

The novel extends itself into every nook and cranny of Terry’s present and past. Vernon James admits he craves sadistic sex which includes choking his female sex partner until she signals she’s had enough. Apparently, he didn’t always abide by that rule. And he is married to beautiful Melissa, who seems to be aware of her husband’s flagrant encounters, but remains married. Her role is sketchy. Oh, and of course, Terry was always in love with her. There are few teasing scenes to fortify this premise.

There is a bounty of characters in this novel. Some are worth the read, Christine Devereaux, who heads the defense, is brilliant and dying, but Stone bolsters her up for the trial. The plot becomes encumbered and Stone often repeats situations, either from poor editing or not enough confidence that the reader will remember, making the book longer. The ending has some little surprises but the Terry and Vernon final scene falls flat.

Grisham is a master at avoiding extraneous complexity. He pulls the reader through his original plots with a definitive theme, and he knows where he is going and when to stop. Stone’s story is good, but not great and much too long.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Awesome book!!! 30 juillet 2016

This is the first book I have read by this author. I saw he had written more books which I plan to order. His book is a real page Turner which keeps your interest from the beginning until the end. Sometimes I could feel my heart rate going up. If you are searching for a great legal novel I highly recommend this book. I can hardly wait to read another book written by him. That is why I gave him 5 stars!!!!!

To me this was a great, long, enjoyable story. I listened to the audible version on my commutes and read some on it in between. I enjoyed the main character as he learned about the law and I was interested til the end. A good solid read!

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Too Long! 24 août 2016
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
Good legal story but a few complaints. The book was way too long. Probably could have cut out over 100 pages maybe more. Too much concentration on the main character's behavior, past, and family. It dragged the story. Those parts were way too long. Finally all the dirt that the main character dug up was over in a flash at the end of the book. Maybe the next one will be shorter.
