Friends, the sun and tennis have led to a backlog with my blog and as you will see I have not written anything for a few days, but this does not mean that I have stopped reading. So this is my review of the book Mistress of Justice by Jeffery Deaver that was read a while ago.
This was an interesting book in so much as the original version was written in the early 1990's, which I read at the time. It was then edited and updated to this current version which I have just read. Whilst I could not have told you what the original story was before reading it, when I got to a lot of the key points I knew what was then going to happen next. Though I am sure the numerous twists at the end were not the same. It kept me guessing right to the end.
So what was the book about – Lawyers, mergers, loan documents, theft and detection. Our hero Taylor Lockwood is working in one of the finest Wall Street law firms as a paralegal and is tasked with helping to find a stolen document that could change the outcome of a forthcoming merger. When not working she plays jazz piano in the local clubs.
She take this investigation very seriously and is soon delving into the private lives off all the senior lawyers that have been around on the night of the theft. A murder is then committed and things go from bad to worse. Can Taylor find the culprit before they get her?
The story goes from one twist to another as the suspects are gradually ruled out, till finally the killer is all that is left.
