Format: Paperback
Feisty, smart and sassy, Sandy Reid has traded in her whiplash field investigations for the courtroom...or has she? She has recently passed the bar and is now a criminal lawyer, but no staid lawyer is she. Retaining her voracious appetite for the truth, she turns the world of law on its ear.

Rod Hoisington's latest mystery all begins with a more or less routine phone call from a woman to Martin, Sandy's partner, the lawyer she "rents a desk from". He passes the arranged meeting with the client over to Sandy to deal with. Martin likes his cases to be simple and civil and meeting an unidentified woman with husband troubles after dark wasn't something he wanted to take on. Unfortunately, when Sandy finds the woman, she has a bullet hole in her forehead. From that moment on, matters go from bad to worse as she is taken away, cuffed, by the police. No residue is found on her hands, but Sandy sees a fair-sized blood stain on the back of her hand, wondering why no one has mentioned it. It makes her feel connected somehow to this woman she only met in death, as though it is a plea for help. Apparently she is the only one who can see it. She must also admit to touching, in fact to picking up an envelope from the woman's lap, and though she immediately put it back, she knows this is going to go badly for her. Sandy just can't keep out of the way of her old nemesis State Attorney Lawrence Moran and his ongoing vindictiveness toward her. She made the unforgivable mistake of proving him wrong when they first met. Now, on what should be a misdemeanor, he is going to do everything in his power to have her disbarred, and power is something he has in spades. On the other hand, Sandy has a few tricks up her sleeve, too, including Martin, who is well-versed in the law, and her current beau Det.

Fast paced thriller from start to finish. Couldn't put it down. Read the whole book in a few hours. Sandy Reid is smart, slick and unrelenting in her search for the truth even takes the hits like a pro when she makes near disastrous mistakes.

Rod Hoisington makes Sandy come alive off the pages!!!!!

It just gets better and better! Really grabbed me. Jan. 14 2012

Sandy just can't keep out of the way of her old nemesis State Attorney Lawrence Moran and his ongoing vindictiveness toward her. She made the unforgivable mistake of proving him wrong when they first met. Now, on what should be a misdemeanor, he is going to do everything in his power to have her disbarred, and power is something he has in spades. On the other hand, Sandy has a few tricks up her sleeve, too, including Martin, who is well-versed in the law, and her current beau Det. Chip Bogard, with all his police knowledge, background and friends.

Enter the perennial party-goers Jenna and Brad, long-time friends of Martin, and he is introduced to Prissy, a dressed-down somewhat shapeless but nice-looking woman who zeroes in on him with lust and moneybags in her eyes. Though these people do not appear to have anything to do with the murdered woman, you just never know about people. What it does provide at this point is romantic entertainment for Martin, and the timing is right because he has just hired a caretaker for his father suffering from Alzheimers, giving Martin some worry-free freedom.

As it turns out, this seemingly innocuous "marital dispute" death, simple and sad, is more than it seems and will have global ramifications. Sandy will have proven herself once again, getting shot up in the process, one tough cookie, but fun as well. As Sandy might say to Moran "Put that in your pipe and smoke it!", or probably not quite in those words. Another great Sandy Reid mystery from Rod Hoisington. He just gets better and better. This well-written story was very fast-paced, thrilling, sexy and funny by turns. I really enjoyed it.

Received this book as a gift.

She also strives to stay on the good side of her partner April 22 2015
By TUCSON ROBERT - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
SUCH WICKED FRIENDS by Rod Hoisington. In this third book of the Sandy Reid series, Hoisington gets his mojo back. Wicked, starts off slowly, maybe even boringly, but at about the 30 percent point, Sandy, our sassy heroin with her newly minted law license turns the justice system in the small Florida town of Park Beach upside down. The story opens with Sandy’s partner, Martin, receiving a phone call from a potential client asking him to meet her in the courtyard of a condominium complex at eight o’clock that evening. Martin hands off the potential client to Sandy who shows up on time only to find the client sitting in a chair in the middle of the courtyard with a bullet hole in her forehead and a manila envelope in her lap. Sandy keeps the story moving at warp speed trying to stay ahead of her nemesis, State Attorney Lawrence Moran, who wants to put her in jail and throw away the key. She also strives to stay on the good side of her partner, Martin, while keeping her boyfriend local detective Chip Goddard happy. The last half of the book is fast paced and holds the reader’s interest.
Recommend the book and give it a rating of 4-stars.

Looking forward to more Sandy Reid March 23 2015
By KGW Book Reader - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I chose to continue reading this series after I purchased the first one in e-book for .99. Sandy Reid is a likeable young lawyer and sometimes sleuth. She seems to be a little scattered at times, but always makes her point, whether it be to her friend Martin, the State Attorney who is always out to 'get her' or to her boy friend cop, Chip. Sandy Reid is smart, and tenacious in her search for the truth even when she makes mistakes of great proportions, ones it seems she'll never straighten out (oh but she does) . I also like the fact this series is set in FL
