Description

"Scott – it's Rebecca. I need you."

His wife left him for a younger man. He blames himself. He could not give her what she had needed, so another man had. Now, two years later, she needs what only he can give her: a defense to a murder charge.

In this sequel to The Color of Law, A. Scott Fenney must defend his ex-wife, Rebecca, who is accused of murdering the man she left him for. Trey Rawlins, a rising star on the pro golf tour, is found dead in his $4 million Galveston beach house with a butcher knife in his chest—and Rebecca's fingerprints are found on the murder weapon. The police refuse to investigate other suspects, so Scott must. The case takes Scott to Galveston, and the investigation takes him behind the scenes of the image-conscious, corporate-sponsored pro golf tour—into a world of million-dollar purses and endorsement deals, agents and caddies, groupies and WAGs. Scott digs deep into Trey Rawlins and discovers a lifestyle that cost him his life—and that now threatens Scott's.

      • premium: False
      • source: Daily Mail (UK)
      • content: "Some critics are calling the Texas-based lawyer Mark Gimenez 'the next Grisham'—but I think that's far less than fair. This, his fifth novel and the second featuring attorney A. Scott Fenney, shows he's now better than the one-time master of the American courtroom drama. . . . If you doubt me, sample this cracking thriller which sees Fenney defend his former wife against the allegation that she killed the man she left him for, millionaire golf professional Trey Rawlins. . . . This is one of the best legal thrillers since Scott Turow's Presumed Innocent in 1987 . . . Superb."
      • premium: False
      • source: City AM (UK)
      • content: "Brilliant writing, masterful plot and all the thrill of the courtroom in one. Grisham, step aside."
      • premium: False
      • source: The Times (UK)
      • content: "Gimenez has set his bloody murder trial Accused against the background of a failed marriage, single-parenting issues and male infidelity. . . . This mix of family values, sex, sleaze and intrigue holds together in a gripping read with unexpected twists that ranks with anything Grisham has done in years."
      • premium: False
      • source: The Australian
      • content: "Gimenez writes smart vernacular dialogue, hip and street-wise, with a nice line in social commentary, and his plotting leaves the over-rated John Grisham in his rear-vision mirror."

      • content: "If you enjoy suspense and a fast-paced courtroom drama, this one's for you."
      • premium: False
      • source: Civilian–Reader (UK)
      • content: "Accused is an engaging and character-led legal thriller. Gimenez's dialogue and prose are as fluid and natural as we've come to expect, and the pacing of the plot will keep pulling you along. When we're finally brought into the court-room, the author actually makes it gripping and tense, even though we've been following Scott and his team's investigation every step of the way. Accused, therefore, offers the reader everything they could want from a thriller, and is a very satisfying read."
      • premium: False
      • source: The Times of India
      • content: "Gimenez's plots are driven by surprises and twists, while the stakes are much higher than what one can possibly imagine at the beginning of the book. What's more, the Texan lawyer, A Scott Fenney, grips our interest with his mind games, and we are compelled to turn one page after another to discover where the story is headed. Gimenez is in good form in Accused. He is equally good in the companion book, The Color of Law. Unputdownable for those who love the genre."
