A good story, which Gimenez tells with passion and conviction
Gimenez has delivered a readable story with a central character who's extremely interesting. We'll be back with A. Scott Finney in the future, I have no doubt.
Warning: You will lose an entire lazy Sunday to this one.
I read it at one sitting . . . Gimenez has created a complex and believable character who carries a story that still intrigues
One of the most promising American lawyer-writers I've read recently. It's a Grisham-like novel about a slick, successful, ambitious Dallas corporate lawyer whose life changes when he has to defend a black prostitute accused of murder.
A compulsive read that owes its heart, soul and passion to Harper Lee's To Kill A Mockingbird. Warning: you can lose an entire lazy Sunday to this one.
At least once a year a new legal thriller hits the shelves, hyped to the stars, with promises that the author will be 'the next John Grisham.' Usually, the fanfare is wasted, the hype is a lie and the promises fall flat because the book isn't very good. Not so with Mark Gimenez' compelling debut, The Color of Law.
The Color of Law is more than just a highly readable legal thriller. It's also a blistering attack on both the legal profession and super-rich Texans in Dallas.
Gimenez does a fine job with the plot; lots of twists and the courtroom scenes are great.
