Come to solving cases and defending their clients This one was especially good I think Wilhelm is captivating author Not a great idea sometimes to skip books in a series but when others are not availablewellI enjoyed the story Maybe not as exciting as some of the previous stories but well told A crime April 16th: Virginia Tech Remembers from the past and a crime in the present give a very compelling look at our justice system and how a person is process and prepared to go to trial I like the lawyer information After reading so many novels this year set in Goteborg Malmo Jakarta Dublin and London London London what a delight to read a book set in Eugene Oregon Reservations at SweetWaters driving down Franklin lost on Fox Hollow Road loved it Thanksor the recommendation Jane I enjoyed getting to know the main character defense attorney Barbara Holloway And her ather I m sure I ll be back or I

And Is On Ais on a tour based on his latest Apparently the book is causing some ripples wherever he speaks in part because of his atheism After giving a lecture attended by Barbara Holloway and her ather Frank David is attacked and lands in the hospital close to death Is the attack related to the two murders Or to his book Either way many in the police department
are convinced that if he dies the case will be closed Etheridge s odd personalityconvinced that if he dies the case will be closed Etheridge s odd personality rub people the wrong way He can be abrupt and rude So working with him is not always a dream Nevertheless Barbara believes in his innocence and is not willing to let the case die if he does The plot is a bit twisted and odd but I suspect in real life such cases exist However the procedural aspects of this case bothered me For one when Robert is murdered the police don t search his house or his room Especially considering he died in his house this seems strange indeed For another there are suggestions that Robert had influence on zoning decisions While a senator can advocate The Habitat Guide to Birding for a zone change he has no power to make any Such decisions are made at the local level by city councils and boards of supervisors The police proceed on their case against David solely on statements made by aew people No physical evidence especially because they didn t even look beyond the body Seems really weak to me and likely not to win any hearts in the District Attorney s office I also had some difficulty liking the characters and believing the riots at the lectures At times Barbara mentioned the prejudices some people have against atheists and how they believe that atheists have no morals I got the sense that she might have believed that too As an atheist myself I can attest that we are like anyone else in that regard Some have morals and others do not Further riots at lectures Anyone who reads books and Space Kid follows lecturers is not generally inclined to break out in physical violence Who would those people have been It s readable kept me interested but I like to see greater care taken in procedures and interesting anduller development of character.

E chargeBarbara must battle the prosecution and the court of public opinion which has already tried and convicted Etheridge or both murders While as almost always I enjoyed this book in Wilhelm s Holloway series my brain protested the whole way through about the amazing memories of characters who recalled in precise detail the events "OF A PARTY FROM 20 YEARS BEFORE WHO LEFT "a party rom 20 years before who left whom at what time who drank what what was said who danced with whom who parked where or arrived on oot etc While I can usually overlook this kind of plot device Every Drop for Sale: Our Desperate Battle Over Water for an instance or two under the willing suspension of disbelief reader s clause Iound it a major hitch in the book that the whole plot hinged on this incredibly unrealistic point Still I don t read Wilhelm only Down We Go: Living Into the Wild Ways of Jesus for plot but primarilyor the real Reach for the Rainbow: Advanced Healing for Survivors of Sexual Abuse flawed yet admirable characters that she carriesrom book to book It s never easy to write a less than stellar review but I d be leading others to the wrong conclusion by recommending Cold Case Apparently attorney Barbara Holloway has appeared in 10 other Wilhelm novels surrounded by a regular cast of characters including her Troubled Waters father Frank co attorney Shelley and her disfigured husband Alex an investigator named Bailey and Barbara s current sueeze Danner and his son Unlike Sue Grafton who seamlessly introducesamiliar characters whether you re reading her The Allergy-Fighting Garden: Stop Asthma and Allergies with Smart Landscaping for theirst time or the 20th Wilhelm overwhelms the plot with so many people that the story gets lost in trying

becomes the prime suspect in the murders is the biggest mystery of the book Etheridgethe prime suspect in the murders is the biggest mystery of the book Etheridge guilt is a slam dunk to the police and even to his attorney Holloway but I certainly couldn t igure out how he d get convicted especially when a much obvious suspect appears early in the bookI made myself Owls: Birds of the Night finish Cold Case though I was thoroughly confused why several over described events were included they had absolutely nothing to do with the plotPerhaps if I d read other bookseaturing Holloway I d have a better Bon Bon Voyage (A Carolyn Blue Culinary Mystery, feelor why it was necessary to include so many other characters And though I had no extra information as a reader than Barbara Holloway I m truly mystified why I knew who committed the crimesI m glad Kate Wilhelm has a Bon Bon Voyage following I ll just move on to mystery writers that give me of a thrill Nice comfortable read I was way ahead in who the suspect should be and seemed like a long timeor the lawyer to get it But I like the characters and the story was interesting Love this series They just keep getting better Barbara Holloway and her ather Frank make an awesome pair when it.
