    It s now several days since I finished reading this book and something is still haunting me and it s this When viewing an identity parade, ten year old Lyle clutched his mother s hand and buried his face in her leg Either that s one very short boy or one very tall mother Otherwise, it was an entertaining read.

    Pretty Good Legal Thriller But Not Without Some Flaws If you re in the mood for a legal thriller that is fast paced, keeps you turning the pages, has main characters that are developed well enough to create interest without being too complex, and has a fair amount of plot twists, than The Hallows by Victor Methos is a book you might want to consider reading But before making your final decision you should be aware that this is far from being great literature nor will you find your brain being t Pretty Good Legal Thriller But Not Without Some Flaws If you re in the mood for a legal thriller that is fast paced, keeps you turning the pages, has main characters that are developed well enough to create interest without being too complex, and has a fair amount of plot twists, than The Hallows by Victor Methos is a book you might want to consider reading But before making your final decision you should be aware that this is far from being great literature nor will you find your brain being taxed from trying to follow its plot Further, though, as mentioned, the plot has some twists, you will likely be able to anticipate when things won t go as planned And, while the sub plots involving the romantic relationship between the male and female main characters and the damaged relationship between the main male character and his cancer ridden father are interesting, they are predictable.So, while you re not likely to include The Hallows in your top 10 list of favorite legal thrillers, I m pretty sure you ll find it to be an entertaining way to escape from the realities of your everyday life

    Thank you Thomas Mercer and Netgalley for a copy of The Hallows by Victor Methos in exchange for an honest review.The Hallows stars hot shot Florida lawyer Tatum Graham When one of his cases shakes him, he heads back home to a small town in Utah, to his childhood crush and his estranged father He gets there to find that a shocking murder has taken place and none of the lawyers have experience to try such a case, so he quickly becomes involved again and tries to work through some personal stuff Thank you ThomasMercer and Netgalley for a copy of The Hallows by Victor Methos in exchange for an honest review.The Hallows stars hot shot Florida lawyer Tatum Graham When one of his cases shakes him, he heads back home to a small town in Utah, to his childhood crush and his estranged father He gets there to find that a shocking murder has taken place and none of the lawyers have experience to try such a case, so he quickly becomes involved again and tries to work through some personal stuff at the same time.I wouldn t go as far as calling The Hallows a thriller, but it does have some intense moments closer to the end Most of the book is closer to a drama, a lot of character building and personal scenes amongst some of the trial aspects and investigations I found it moved a little slower than I would have liked at some parts, and never quite figured out why so much of the personal story of Tatum Graham was included, but it did make him seem less arrogant at times so maybe that was it It would make a good starter read into this genre if you haven t read many legal drama books before

    Some of the reviewers didn t finish the book because they didn t like Tatum s smart ass attitude but I happened to like it, throughout the book He was never that way toward anyone he liked, it was just toward bad people or assholes It was a very good story, about the torture and murder of a 17 year old girl AND I had no clue who the second person was until the very end I really like Victor Methos s books.There is, of course, no sex and no swearing to speak of.As to the narration Alexander C Some of the reviewers didn t finish the book because they didn t like Tatum s smart ass attitude but I happened to like it, throughout the book He was never that way toward anyone he liked, it was just toward bad people or assholes It was a very good story, about the torture and murder of a 17 year old girl AND I had no clue who the second person was until the very end I really like Victor Methos s books.There is, of course, no sex and no swearing to speak of.As to the narration Alexander Cendese was fabulous He sounded like a female when necessary and his male voices were great He s a wonderful narrator
