I really enjoyed the courtroom scenes, the back and forth and not knowing who was telling the truth, if anyone. If I must carp a bit, I'll say the transition could use a little improvement - in spots, it jumps around a bit.

One of my favorite being that if you are high on their list of wanted criminals, they will quite literally make your life into a movie.So I think he knows what he's talking about and maybe has so many more stories up his sleeve he'll be rivaling Grisham someday. Working all the angles, Nora secures an arrest, but will have to take the case to trial, in hopes of showing that the deception and treachery committed were all part of a larger scheme to enforce a message on a politician who had deep pockets and no morals. Comey also received heavy criticism from Republicans, in part after it was revealed that he had begun drafting an exoneration letter for Clinton before the investigation was complete.

I think the plot was well done, realistic and engaging, and if it dragged on in places then so do real investigations. The author makes excellent use of his extensive experience with the FBI and as a federal prosecutor. It’s a solid thriller that takes time out to examine the vagaries and subtleties of the American criminal justice system along the way. Drawing from the author’s decades in federal law enforcement, including his years in Manhattan as a mob prosecutor and later the chief federal prosecutor, Central Park West is a fast-paced legal thriller with an intriguing plot enriched by real-life details and experiences.I liked Central Park West, but he's got a long way to go before he's Grisham or Connolly or Lehane, and I doubt he's committed enough to it to get there. where she's preparing to prosecute Dominic "The Nose" D'Amico, a recently made member of the Mafia's Gambino Crime Family. My thanks to the author, publisher, HighBridge Audio, and NetGalley for the advanced audiobook copy in exchange for my unbiased, honest review. Of course, there are a couple of twists - rather predictable twists, really, but still exciting and entertaining, nonetheless. There is somehow no time for subjects or prepositions, even when a junior FBI agent is describing her Thanksgiving travel plans to her colleagues in a sit-down meeting: “Flight early tomorrow to San Fran to see my family.

A whole essay could be written about Comey’s struggle to credibly align the story with modern liberal sensibilities concerning race and sex. Federal prosecutor Nora Carleton has spent years building a case against a powerful New York mobster. She and her team work hard to put away a mob hit woman who not only killed the governor but has a long list of hits. I did feel like his background allowed him to delve really deep into the underlying motivation of these investigators that we might not see from other authors. For whatever reason, the Manhattan DA does not want the feds affecting the sensational murder case, so it’s up to the United States Attorney team to determine if Kyra Burke is being framed even as the trial is ongoing.So far as I can tell, it is supposed to convey just how busy everyone is and how quickly the investigation is moving, but the device is stretched well beyond its breaking point. We have seen how that can play out in this country recently and things are no different across the pond. I also can't say I was thrilled with the ending, but that's not a negative - I'm pretty sure it reflects reality more often than not (sometimes bad people do good things, sometimes good people do bad things, sometimes neither gets found out). Later, when he testifies in court, he looks “like he’d just walked off the runway at a Milan fashion show. the characters are set up, we learn about the murder of a promiscuous governor and his accused ex-wife, Kyra Burke, now on trial, as well as a mob boss and other shady, unscrupulous people.

In an interview with NPR, Comey acknowledged, "An editor of non-fiction nudged me to, and at first I resisted. born December 14, 1960) is an American lawyer who served as the seventh Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) from September 4, 2013 until his dismissal on May 9, 2017. When she is able to nail something down, she will not only have to convince her superiors, but the prosecution, who are sure they can get a conviction in state court. Maybe, just maybe, his permanent silence was a mob hit; but that's only conjecture, since his ex-wife Kyra has been charged with, and is on trial for, the killing. Early on, a former state governor - one who keeps his lips zipped but articles of his clothing not so much - is found dead of a suicide that turns out to be murder.I was intrigued by the prospect of Comey’s first fiction outing, and I was prepared for it to be—on some level hoping that it would be—awful. My eyes go to the ceiling on several occasions as he repeatedly gives us the style of characters pronunciation of certain words so it becomes ga-bidge.
