Kurzbeschreibung

Jenna James’s life has been smooth sailing since she left the high-powered law firm of Marbury Marfan. She’s happily ensconced as a professor at a prestigious law school, where she’s well liked by her students, coupled-up with a handsome colleague, and on track for tenure. But things take a shocking turn one morning when a student, Primo, comes to Jenna’s office seeking her advice about a treasure map he recently inherited. When Primo turns up dead and Jenna is suddenly the prime suspect in a murder investigation, everyone turns on her. Desperate for help, she calls on two old friends: Robert Tarza, her old law partner from Marbury Marfan, and Oscar Quesana, an odd-duck solo practitioner. The three race to save Jenna’s career—and perhaps her life—in this whip-smart thriller of treasure maps, murder, and law school politics.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Für Fans von "Boston Legal" & Co. 30. April 2014
Von TripleS
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Ich hatte mir aufgrund der Beschreibungen eine etwas abenteuerlichere Geschichte mit Schatzsuche vorgestellt. Dies hat sich nicht erfüllt; dafür war es aber ein kurzweiliger, unblutiger Krimi mit einigen interessanten Wendungen und einem zwar nicht völlig überraschendem, aber trotzdem recht spannenden Ende. Der Erzählstil erinnert an Boston-Legal-Folgen (der Autor war wohl dort auch Co-Autor etlicher Folgen) mit sehr viel juristischem Hintergrund; durch den Wechsel der Erzählpersonen wird es aber nicht trocken oder langweilig. Als leichte Lektüre durchaus zu empfehlen, wer einen Krimi mit Tiefgang erwartet oder das amerikanische Rechtssystem uninteressant findet, wird wahrscheinlich enttäuscht.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Clever Entertainment 2. Februar 2014
Von C.R. Hurst - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
In his sequel to Death on a High Floor, Charles Rosenberg creates an engaging and easy-to-read mystery, Long Knives, which should appeal to any fan of the legal thriller genre. The book follows the career of alpha female Jenna James, who leaves her successful law practice at Marbury Marfan for less stressful (or so she thinks) employment in teaching law at UCLA. Unfortunately Jenna's new career in academia is threatened by the murder of one of her students and Jenna, fearing she may be charged with the murder or may even become the murderer's next victim, decides to investigate. What happens next is a complex whodunit with plenty of plots twists and colorful characters that leave Jenna, and the reader, guessing. And although Long Knives does leave some loose threads dangling from the seam of its plot (for another sequel perhaps?), it is nevertheless a clever and entertaining cliffhanger.

1.0 von 5 Sternen I can't do it 8. Februar 2014
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
The main character really grates on my nerves. She is full of herself . The author includes absolutely every thought ,observation and inner conversation she has...BORING!! I've been reading and have been waiting for something interesting to happen.

His writing is similar to this passage I made up:

Main Character:

"I drove 5.3 miles to work, found a parking spot and pulled into it. I noticed a blue car next to me. I wonder who owns the blue car. I have never seen it before. I wonder if a new faculty was hired and I didn't know about it. I got out of my car and walked to the building entrance. It was early and I was the only person there.

It's unusual for me to be up so early. I haven't even had coffee and I really need coffee. I am not an early person. Faculty and High Powered Attorneys don't have to get up early like other people. We can show up whenever we feel like it. When I get to my office I will make a pot of coffee. My coffee maker is one of those designer machines that make coffee better than Starbucks. It has a steamer and it makes really hot coffee. I bought it when I was in Italy a few years back. Customs almost wouldn't let me bring it on the airplane but I told them I was a High Powered Attorney and that did the trick.

As I walkind into my building I saw the mascot of our school and realized that meant the big game was imminent. (and on and on about every minute detail about the mascot...everything you never want or need to know) I opened the main door and walked up three flights of stairs, which I noticed had been power cleaned during the night, where my office is around a corner neslted in a private nook. I love that private nook. It reminds me of my days as a High Powered Attorney. I had the best office because I am amazing. I don't know why I left that high powered career. I was so good at being a high powered attorney but I am really a rising star here and I am on the fast track to tenure (because I am really spectacular).

I searched through my handbag for my key. I realized I should have had it ready to save time or maybe I should have a special pocket for my key to save time in the mornings. I know a friend of mine keeps her key on a chain she wears around her neck. I think that is pretty cheesy. I would never do that, since I am on the fast track to tenure (because I am amazing) When I got to my office the door was already open"....

when she sees the door open and enters her office something happens that has potential to be frightening and mysterious but the author couldn't pull it off...he didn't leave anything to the reader's imagination. All the chatter before ,during and after the encounter spoiled the "hook" and momentum that was needed to keep readers' attention.

So far, i've read nothing about Long Knives or anything about murder at all.

The book is 497 pages long. I deleted it from my Kindle Library

3.0 von 5 Sternen Emotionless 8. Februar 2014
Von Liz - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I put this book down several times with no intention of finishing it, but I did finally read it in its entirety.

I kept going back because the story was interesting. I kept putting it away because the characters were so emotionally detached. I guess I could never get emotionally attached to what might happen to them.

The main character, most of all, was not likeable, and not very bright for someone who had been a top notch lawyer at a big firm and currently teaching law at UCLA. She does a lot of dumb things. (Here's this evidence of poisoned coffee so I'm going to keep it in my fridge at home and when the cops find it while executing a search warrant, I'm not going to tell my defense team about it until sometime later.) Or, while worrying about her salary being much smaller than previously, she rents a Ferrari and buys a $2000 dress for a date.

All of the characters were pretty flat. I think Mr. Rosenberg can tell an interesting tale. He just needs some guidance on creating interesting characters. The protagonist even describes herself and her lover as emotionally unavailable. I think that summed up the entire book.

My true rating is 2.5 stars.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Bestseller??? 9. Februar 2014
Von Myst&Hist - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Felt obligated to finish this as it was an Amazon preview. Had to speed read the last 50 or so pages.
Boring. Pedantic. Drivel all come to mind. Then I see it on and bestsellers? You have to be kidding me.
There are several other 1 star critiques here that are right on.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Started out great... ending, not so much 10. Februar 2014
Von Allyson Miller - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Wow- what happened to the author that led to one of the worst endings to a mystery I've ever read??!! I was glued to the pages for 99/100ths of this book... and then the end came, and I wanted the last 2 days of my life back. And I knew I wasn't going to get them, and I was livid. This ending is either a hilarious joke, or the author thinks his audience is REALLY stupid. Definitely won't be looking for more from this guy.
