Review Text

  • By Maria Magenta on 28 December 2007

    "Dead Even" is the story of two married lawyers, Sara and Jared Tate, working in New York City. Sara had been unemployed but after months of searching, she lands a job as an assistant district attorney - only to learn the mayor is gutting the DA's office. Fortunately, she gets a strangely high-profile, potentially career-saving case. Meanwhile Jared is pressured to defend the same man Sara is prosecuting.From the beginning Sara and Jared believe they're battling over a burglary case, but it begins to look like murder and a web of conspiracy unfolds that eventually envelops Sara and Jared. Then they learn, independently of one another, that the other's life is at stake. The threat: Win the case or your spouse dies. The more they fight, the more they put each other in jeopardy.Talk about a no-win proposition.However you'll feel like a winner if you spend a night with this book. I know, it's probably not possible for a husband and wife to face each other as opposing counsel, because of conflict of interest, but still this was a very good read, kind of like watching a movie.

    When the wife is the prosecutor and the husband is defence attorney, and they oppose each other across a courtroom, it's a colossal battle of wills, and a real test of their love.Even more so when one of them must die, depending on the outcome of the case.It's a fast-moving, comfortably easy to read story, and great for taking on holidays.

    I always enjoy Brad's books. I found out about them via his tv show. I enjoy (dare I say it?) The "journey" his books take you on.
