"Keera Duggan was building a solid reputation as a Seattle prosecutor, until her romantic relationship with a senior colleague ended badly. For the competitive former chess prodigy, returning to her family's failing criminal defense law firm to work for her father is the best shot she has. With the right moves, she hopes to restore the family's reputation, her relationship with her father, and her career. Keera's chance to play in the big leagues comes when she's retained by Vince LaRussa, an investment adviser accused of murdering his wealthy wife. There's little hard evidence against him, but considering the couple's impending and potentially nasty divorce, LaRussa faces life in prison. The prosecutor is equally challenging: Miller Ambrose, Keera's former lover, who's eager to destroy her in court on her first homicide defense. As Keera and her team follow the evidence, they uncover a complicated and deadly game that's more than Keera bargained for. When shocking information turns the case upside down,Keera must decide between her duty to her client, her family's legacy, and her own future"--… (more)

Robert Dugoni has done it again. Another terrific book in the Keera Duggan series. Her Deadly Game (Keera Duggan Book 1) draws you in and keeps you guessing until the very end. As always, a strong female lead character takes the reins and runs with it. Keera Dugan a daughter of a very reputable Lawyer is looking to make her mark in her first murder defense case. She is as good in the court room as she is in playing the masterful game of chess. The whole story line seems to be a grand Chess game played throughout life. I enjoyed the characters and the storyline, which held my interest to the very end. If you enjoy intrigue, suspense, murder, mystery, and a great family connection then you will certainly enjoy this book as I have. Highly recommended. ( )

Good legal thrill ala Grisham who is the master of this genre. Keera is our young lawyer who is now in her family defense firm along with her two sisters and father who is known as the Irish Brawler but is also an alcoholic. Not just a legal mystery but family dynamics play a role in keeping the story moving of a murder of a wealthy but recently disabled wife of a wealth financial manager. Did the husband do it? ( )

Keera Duggan is the youngest daughter of an alcoholic, scrappy lawyer, Patsy Duggan. Her sisters, one of whom is a lawyer, Ella, and one a legal assistant, Maggie, work in her father's office. She joins that office after leaving the prosecutor's office due to an affair with another prosecutor. Keera is on call when Vince LaRussa, who will be charged with murdering his wife, calls for representation. She agrees to take the case. While this is going on, Keera is playing a game of chess online with the Dark Knight. The case seems to parallel the chess game which she uses as a way to relax and refresh her mind. LaRussa's wife is in a wheel chair and severely comprised physically due to an accident. It falls to Keera, her father, and sisters to figure out how Anne LaRussa was killed or committed suicide and why in order to keep Vince LaRussa from being convicted for her murder. ( )

This was a quick easy read, which held my interest throughout apart from the chess match sections which I just skipped over. (Unless you are obsessed with chess, would you want to read about the moves of a game two people are playing? I think it might have been mean to parallel events in the main narrative...) I do like a competent woman doing her job well, and defence lawyer Keera even manages to humiliate the appalling DA Ambrose, who deserved everything he got. ( )

Please narrators, directors and producers learn to pronounce Porsche. It's not Porsh. It's German. Not that hard. Plus it's not a 9-1-1 like the emergency number. It's a nine-eleven. 911. Like that. Simple. ( )
