Brent Marks had paid his dues as a lawyer, having taken his share of divorces and drunk driving cases over his 20 year career, but had finally reached a place in his life where he could take on cases of social importance. What he least expected was for April Marsh’s predatory lending case against the big banks for wrongful foreclosure on her parent’s home to turn into a murder investigation. April’s parents were brutally attacked in their Santa Barbara home; her mother murdered and the only witness to the crime is her father, who survived the attack but is completely incapacitated. The police have no leads, but April believes the predatory lender is behind it. Are banks really that above the law?
This was the first book I’ve read by Kenneth Eade, and it was by mistake. I messed up and read Book 2 instead of starting with the first in the series. Guess that’s what I get for not paying attention when choosing books.
Other than that, this book was great. Full of suspense, and a little romance. The plot was full of serious surprises and keep you reading to find out more. Kenneth Eade has a great talent, never dull. And please, don’t read this book right before bed you will NOT be going to sleep!!
Brent is a wonderful lawyer, not at all boring ;). Honestly though, Predatory Kill shows a different side to lawyers. It shows a part of their personal lives: romance, friendships, and the risk that a lot of lawyers take on a daily basis. Thankfully his personal safety threats didn’t come to pass, but there are many that do every single day.
And corrupt bankers? Who woulda thought….
I can’t wait to read the rest of this series… I HAVE to know who this murderer is!!!
