Product Description

Product Description

When the law ends, the pursuit of justice begins!

Born into a legal dynasty, Jack Lawson was a natural who was making a name for himself as one of Manhattan's top young lawyers. But when his world came crashing down, Jack left the big city and his family's powerful firm, to seek solace in a small village of Cooperstown, New York. There, he re-discovered his love of the law.

But the peaceful village is shattered when a body is found on the estate of the county's most famous resident, and American hero, Drew Anderson. A man considered to be so perfect that he is nicknamed Max Q after the benchmark for systems perfection during a space launch.. And it isn't just anybody who is found dead—the victim is widely considered to be one of the world's most infamous women.

When Anderson is arrested for the murder, Jack ends up with the case that everyone wants to “go away,” and some are willing to go to the deadly lengths to make sure it does. Against all odds, Jack and his partner, Jessica Shepherdson, must risk their reputations, their careers, and eventually their lives, in an explosive race for the truth.

HASH(0x985b5990) out of 5 stars Okay, it's good Oct. 12 2013

I thought about taking away one star because I hate present tense narrative and the wrong words (sight instead of site) were annoying, but the book was too good. But I really do wish the writer would get a decent editor.

HASH(0x985b5bdc) out of 5 stars Engaging story from a first rate story teller Nov. 27 2011

After really enjoying Derek's first book "Painless" I was looking forward to experiencing his second book "The Trials of Max Q". I found the book a little slow at first as he developed the characters but it then became more interesting as I continued reading. And as is often the case with good books, as I got to the end I didn't want to quit reading. I think it is fair to say that Derek Ciccone is a first rate story teller. The book could use another edit review as I found several places where a word was left out and at location 6137 in the Kindle version the word that should have been spelled "here" was spelled "hear". However the missing words did not detract from the story much as it was quite easy to figure out what should have been there. There was a short segment of the book where language was used that I prefer not to see in the books I read. But in Derek's defense the language was what you might expect from the characters using it and it was only briefly used. All in all I enjoyed the story and will most likely purchase his next book "The Truant Officer" soon.

HASH(0x985b5ba0) out of 5 stars Could not put this down!! April 20 2013

Format: Kindle Edition
This was the 4th book I have read by Derek Ciccone and is one of my favorites. I was able to read it in 2 days simply because I could not put it down! The author has such a way at developing his characters so that you can follow them easily and want to know what will happen next! Looking forward to more books to come!

The twists & turns kept me engaged & I actually didn't figure out what was coming ahead of time. I have just started reading Derek Ciccone & so far have loved everything I have read. Definitely an author to read.

HASH(0x985b5f30) out of 5 stars A Book With Two Faces Jan. 28 2015
By T. Schiel - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
It started out with a bang. A really good plot line and well written book I really enjoyed reading. impersonation gang took over, figuratively and literally, hijacked the book and spoiled it. The last third, as already mentioned, was ridiculous, the ending a dud. It has been also mentioned that maybe two different authors wrote this book, the first one very good, the last one a hack. A very disappointing book. I gave the three stars for the excellent beginning. The last part deserved zero stars.
