    Charley Sloane, at one time a brilliant lawyer, lost almost everything. He escaped being disbarred and only had a year-long suspension. He spent that year becoming a recovering alcoholic. Slowly, bit by bit, he’s gained his self-confidence, won a few cases, and the phone is ringing more often these days.Outside of Detroit, the bodies of young children, wrapped in saran wrap are found buried in the snow. Sue Gillis, Homicide Detective and Charley’s girlfriend, is getting a little perturbed. S [...]

    Decent law thriller. A little too much lawyer/cop relationship melodrama as well as a little too much pontificating about life. Kind of like a soap opera meets a cop show. Coughlin's style is less hard-edged than Grisham's. The ending is abrupt the story that goes on for 400 pages gets wrapped up in a couple of pages.

    I received a free copy via Netgalley in exchange for a honest review.This is a real easy read.If you like a book with plenty of twists then this is for you.

    I'm usually a fairly organized guy, but one would never know it by the order in which I have read these Charley Sloan novels. I started with the second, followed by the fourth, then the last which was at best plotted out by Coughlin but written by Walter Sorrells and then the third, interspersed with two of his earlier non-Sloan series novels. I live in Mexico and can seldom get exactly what I want when I want it, but I hope to finally get to the first in the series when I get to the States next [...]

    This was a very good legal thriller although there's very little courtroom action. The story centers around lawyer Charley Sloan. It's difficult to review because there are two storylines occurring simultaneously. The action takes place in and around Detroit. Charley used to practice in the city until he started drinking, got himself suspended from the bar, and had to fight his way back. At the moment he's dating a woman, Sue Gillis, who works for the police department. When a child's body is fo [...]

    Truth is stranger than fictionTake a recovering alcoholic criminal lawyer in a small town near Detroit. Add a smattering of good friends both current and from the past in quixotic late fall weather with a heavy dusting of snow as a series of young innocent children are found murdered with few clues. Solving the murders, catching up with old friends and coming to terms with money that disappeared from a safe and a man's search for truth in his life littered with reasons for trying to stay sober p [...]

    This fabulous author died last year but his widow just published this addition to the Charley Sloan series. I know it's too much to hope for, but I sure hope she's got more to come! Lawyer Charley Sloan handles the small cases out of his small office just outside of Detroit. But now his little town is looking more like Detroit. A serial killer is leaving bodies of small children all around. These children have been murdered and then bathed and their clothes washed and then they have been wrapped [...]

    It was just okayThis was not a courtroom thriller. In fact the book hardly had any courtroom action. There were two mysteries. The one involving the Detroit policeman was interesting and had a very surprising ending. The other was stupid. The actions and dialogue associated with the mystery were dull, and it was just not good. So, you have a book with two mysteries - one good and the other bad.

    Another winner!Just recently discovered William J Coughlin, and have added him to my favorite writersCharlie Sloan is drawn realistically, warts and all, and yet his courtroom and sleuthing expertise make him a cut or ten above. Would recommend this series highly and can't wait to start the next installment!!

    Very good mysteryI have to go back and read #2 but missing it didn't really affect this story. It moved along quickly and kept me guessing right to the end. I even went back in the book while I was reading to see if there were clues every time I figured out who the murderer was. EVERY time. Good book

    I'm finished with The Judgement: just finished The Judgement it was a top read and a standout in the Charlie Sloan series I probably shouldn't say to much yet as I will read Proof Of Intent next and I feel its going to be a top read to at nearly 400 pages these are good legal thrillers 5 stars

    JudgementThis is the best book I've read in a while. The author kept various story lines going with excitement and interest through the book. I would highly recommend the book and look forward to reading more of this authors work.

    Charlie Sloane, great character.I chose 5 stars due to how the author could keep me interested in so many different lives involved for one guy. Keeps me from getting up or setting the book down.

    Good storyThis is the third in the series. What I like is you don't have to read the prior books in the series to be able to enjoy each book. What I didn't like was the proofreading in this book was sloppy. For me that detracts from the enjoyment of reading.

    Good thrillerThoroughly enjoyed this author's approach to his mysteries, very thrilling to watch his solutions and his personal struggles which make him very human.

    IlluminatingThis book has to be read from beginning to end. Very well written and the characters very believable. A lesson to be learned at the end.

    Possibly my favoriteCharley Sloan. Despite the fact that there is no trial action, and the denouement is a little too neat, this story is excellent.
