Kurzbeschreibung

"Deftly plotted ... Kemanis is a writer of high caliber worth noting..."
  --The U.S. Review of Books    
Dana Hargrove has left her rookie days far behind and returns as an experienced trial attorney prosecuting the toughest cases. It's 1994, and the murder rate in New York City is sky high. Dana belongs to an elite cadre of prosecutors on the "homicide chart," that 24/7 roster of on-call responders to murder scenes. Her next turn on the chart comes at a bad time, during an exhausting week of courtroom battles. A surprise witness of dubious credibility has surfaced, threatening to undermine her recently-won murder conviction against a reputed gang member. Back on the chart, Dana receives a call in the middle of the night, plunging her into a new murder investigation that hits dangerously close to home--a case that will change her life forever.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Legal suspense with style and substance 7. Juni 2014
Von CA reviews - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
The second Dana Hargrove legal thriller is a well paced, polished, and highly enjoyable read. I enjoyed the first Dana Hargrove book, THURSDAY’S LIST, but Kemanis has hit her stride with HOMICIDE CHART.

Dana is still with the New York District Attorney’s office, but time has moved forward by several years and she’s now married to Evan, a private sector attorney. They have a toddler, Travis. The couple lives in Manhattan and employs a Dutch au pair, Annecke. With two busy careers, the couple depends heavily on the girl, but they don’t know the heavy secret she carries.

Neither does the reader at first and Kemanis meters out the suspense in compelling fashion. There are three major plot elements all going on at the same time—Dana’s criminal murder case involving a notorious street gang, Evan’s defamation case for a looney romance author, and Annecke’s increasingly disturbing secret. Points of view move between characters as the action takes us from courtroom to boardroom to the nanny’s woes. Each time the narration switches, the reader is left hungry for more from that plot element, making for great reading all the way through.

Each of the three threads is absorbing in its own right, and incorporates a different legal issue. I wondered if they would converge in a climax, or if one would eventually take center stage. The pieces eventually fall into place (no spoilers!) in a highly satisfying way and justice is served in each instance.

I received an advance review copy for the purpose of this impartial review. However, it's hard to be impartial when a book is this good. Highly recommended.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Fast paced legal mystery, kept me up all night! 1. Juni 2014

Homicide Chart (Dana Hargrove Legal Mystery #2) by V. S. Kemanis

The story takes place in 1994 New York. Dana is in a special unit know as the Homicide Chart, she is on call 24 hours a day seven days a week. She gets a call that is a tough one for her, she has to face the challenge head on. She must remain professional, juggle her married life and her young son. But nothing is too complicated for Dana, even if a case is close to her heart.

A fast paced legal murder , with secrets, twist and turns. I really like Dana, she is no nonsense at work, but a loving wife and mother. The story line was filled with secrets drama, I was hooked from the first page until the last. I could not put it down. An all night read. I highly recommend to those who love Legal (murder) thrillers.

(I received this book as a gift)
4.0 von 5 Sternen Very good legal thriller with real life at the center. 23. Juli 2014
Von Retired bear - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
This book has three concurrent plots. It takes a while to realize which is the central theme. Curiously, the title item, the Homicide Chart, is relegated to the background. Once the chart comes into the forefront, the real tragedy of the book becomes apparent.

The characters are well developed to the point that I could visualize them and was pulling for them. To me, that is a hallmark of a talented author. This story is captivating and interesting and well worth the price.
4.0 von 5 Sternen Another solid read from a talented author 17. Juni 2014
Von Roxy Lee - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I really enjoyed this legal mystery, which I received as a free preview ebook in exchange for a review. A plus for me is that this is an example of a self-published book that's better than much of the traditionally published work out there.

I'd previously read this author's wonderful short stories, as well as her first novel, which introduces Dana Hargrove as a rookie assistant DA in Manhattan. You don't need to read the first Dana Hargrove book, <i>Thursday's List</i>, to follow <i>Murder Chart</i>, but you should: the first one is a great page-turner that gives you insight into the central character.

<i>Murder Chart</i> picks up a few years after the first book ends. Now Dana's the happily married mother of a toddler. And she's steadily moving up the ladder at the DA's office, taking the lead in homicide prosecutions. Thanks to a live-in au pair, and a lawyer spouse who's in less stressful private practice, all seems well on the home front. But some skillful foreshadowing tips us off that this may not last.

Dana handles a variety of murder cases, which she picks up in her weekly on-call "murder chart" stints. There are few gruesome crime details -- look elsewhere if that's what you like -- but one case in particular is quite haunting. Instead of gritty action, Kemanis delivers insightful characterization and telling details. By the book's end, we know not just what happened, but a lot about why.

I didn't give this 5 stars, as I did the first Dana Hargrove, because overall this book had a quieter feel and at times went into legal detail in a way that might not interest some readers. (It did interest me, but I like to watch TV talking heads dissecting court cases.) Maybe this novel is less gripping because Dana suffers less angst. But on the other hand, it makes a nice change from the usual mysteries, headed up by PIs and cops who are either unbelievably quirky or crippled by personal trauma.

I like the fact that (so far anyway), while her lead character may be threatened, this author doesn't resort to the usual "woman in jeopardy" scenarios. (Maybe that applies almost as much to male protagonists, but in any case it can feel hackneyed and turn me off to an otherwise likable mystery series. Does the protagonist always have to go haring off after the bad guys without a plan or weapon, and get almost killed in gruesome detail, surviving just because s/he's the good guy and the series must go on?) If this difference has to do with legal mysteries as a sub-genre, then maybe I should look for more of these.

Another point about the Dana Hargrove books: it's not always the protagonist who wraps up the case. Sometimes she's told to back off due to legitimate conflicts of interest, and unlike the prototypical mystery investigator, she actually does step back. So we find out "who did it" through other eyes. That's fine by me, and it is true to the character.

At the end of each Dana Hargrove book, I felt that I'd learned something while enjoying myself. This is fiction, but it rings true.

In the first book, I found out a bit about how drug cartels launder money, and how they can pull people into their bloody schemes. And I got a glimpse of the terrible time pressures on rookie prosecutors and defense attorneys. In <i>Murder Chart</i>, we get a look at problems with witness reliability, and the tricky ethics of lawyer-client relationships. In a case handled by Dana's husband, an obnoxious mystery author is sued for defamation by one of her high school classmates. We learn a bit about what is <i>not</i> OK for a novelist to write based on real people. That raises the obvious question, how much of the plot is drawn from the real-life career of the author? I'd love to know more about that.
4.0 von 5 Sternen good courtroom drama, with a personal twist 6. Juni 2014

I received a review copy of this book.
ADA Dana Hargrove is coming to the end of a murder trial, and it’s her turn on the murder chart (the next on call ADA to a murder scene to ensure that everything is done by ‘the book’).
When she is called out at 11:30, it’s to the death of an eighteen month old girl in an apartment, and they can’t find the parents anywhere, the medical examiner suspects it may be a case of SBS, Shaken baby syndrome.
The next day she finds that her Dutch au pair Anneke, is being charged with the child’s murder and she has been taken off the case.
Although a little slow at times, it is a good courtroom drama, with a personal twist.
