Product Description

From the Publisher


It was a very lucky day for me when Kate Wilhelm came into the office. I found her so charming, I couldn't wait to read one of her books, and I started with FOR THE DEFENSE. It is, quite simply, a wonderful book with engaging characters and an unique and intricate plot that kept me guessing to the very (unpredictable) end. I immediately read all Kate's other books, and now look forward to each new one.

Tanya Thompson, Executive Assistant

This book was supposed to be one of those that was impossible to put down but I was'nt able to keep it up!! I really tried, thinking it's bound to get better, but let's just say it's not worth the effort. I read a lot of books and I love courtroom drama, but I was not able to even like this father and daughter lawyer duo at all. The plot is so slow and boring. The only other book I have read by this author was her book "The Good Children" and it read like something one would read in high school, which is fine if you're in high school,but I am not. I tried one of her legal thrillers as they are all hyped to be so great but I will not waste money on another. Very disappointing. If you want a great courtroom thriller try a Barbara Parker book.

I'm a real fan of Kate Wilhelm, both because her plots are interesting, and because her mysteries feature adult women who have good relationships with their fathers and healthy romantic relationships that don't make me want to throw the book away cursing their stupidity. Her books are consistently good -- she never disappoints. And her use of language is beautiful.
