Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Witty and fast-paced, this novel is filled with tension, suspense and sharply drawn characters. And the courtroom drama sizzles!” William Martin, New York Times bestselling author
“A stunning drama filled with characters as smart and surprising as Spence himself, and brilliant plotting that twists and turns to an ending you’ll never see coming.” Linda Fairstein, New York Times bestselling author
Court of Lies is best filed under courtroom noir, a la Michael Connolly’s superb Lincoln Lawyer series featuring Mickey Haller. Spence’s prose is as polished as his final summation to the jury, helping to make the case that he belongs alongside John Grisham and Scott Turow as the foremost legal thriller writers of our time.” Providence Journal
“The famed trial lawyer’s first novel…is narrated with excellent pacing by Adam Grupper…Grupper gives the characters appropriate accents and breathes life into their mannerisms, keeping listeners engaged throughout.” AudioFile
