Never Goodbye by Adam Mitzner

Are you looking for a really good legal thriller? Then queue this one up and prepare yourself for a dizzying whirl of a ride! Better yet, read the first book featuring one of the characters (this is a sequel -- which I did not know and I am so sorry to have missed out) titled DEAD CERTAIN. And a little endnote tells me that there may be another one. Definitely for you if you're a fan of Law and Order or any of the other crime dramas featuring special victims.

It doesn't get much better than this -- lies, secrets, betrayal and great courtroom action with all the authentic legalese that only an author who knows it can tell it. I loved the details! This author is new to me, but I intend to rectify that by going to the backlist.

"The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law"

Ella Broden, former sex crimes prosecutor with the Manhattan DA's office, now lounge club singer, is in therapy recovering from the fallout after the murder of her younger sister. She's trying to get her life back together and is working on her relationship with Lieutenant Gabriel Velasquez of the NYPD.
Though she misses the practice of law, she needs this break.

Dana Goodwin has Ella's old job and is working under the tutelage of Lauren Wright, the chief of the Special Victims Bureau. Dana is married to Stuart and they have a 5-year-old son. Dana loves her new job and gets some information that allows her to dream of taking over as head of the office soon.

But -- NO SPOILERS -- things change as an explosion of events dramatically shift everything and this puts the two women at odds with each other. In the courtroom. I don't want to say any more and hope that you enjoy the twists and turns of this story as much as I did!

I can't wait for more! Thank you to NetGalley and Thomas & Mercer for this e-book ARC to read and review.
