"McLean's first novel takes the reader on a terrific journey through the machinations of Boston law. Under Fire is a compelling legal thriller with vivid characters, a realistic feel to the proceedings, and a case that ignites our interest practically on the first page. McLean, a law professor and former criminal prosecutor, knows her stuff and, even better, knows how to translate it to fiction."
I didn't find the book the courtroom proceedings that believable, but evidently most people did.
Not a bad way to spend an evening, but perhaps (for me, at least) not the best way, either. I'll stick to John Lescroart for legal thrillers.
