    1. Betrayal wounds.Revenge destroys.Over three decades, Hamlin's practice devolved into just another racket: intimidating witnesses, suborning perjury, destroying evidence, laundering money. But is he the victim of murder—or of a dangerous sexual encounter gone wrong? And when law enforcement believes justice has already been done, who can be trusted to find out?Once again in the city where his career came to a shattering end, former detective Harlan Donnally resolved it wouldn't be him. He had n [...]

    2. This is the second volume of a trilogy about a retired San Francisco cop, Harlan Donnally. I haven't yet read the first, Act of Deceit, but that didn't matter as this works well as a stand-alone. Having said that, I'll be reading the first book very soon because I want to know more about Donnally.The book begins with Donnally and his friend, SF cop Ramon Navarro, in the shadows of the Golden Gate Bridge where they can see a body hanging. The victim's pants are down around his ankles and plainly [...]

    3. In this newest novel by Steven Gore, he takes on the dark side of one aspect of the American criminal justice system, exposing practices including, e.g suborned perjury, manufactured evidence, witness intimidation, and corrupt attorneys, investigators, and expert witnesses such as psychiatrists called to bolster claims of diminished capacity. And it should be stated that he does do quite a convincing job of it. (He promises that in his next book he will take on the prosecutorial side of the same [...]

    4. My whole problem with the crime-mystery-suspense genre has always been that it ends up being little more than a puzzle that is to be solves as quickly as possible. Rarely any books focus on the motives and psychological aspects and even fewer books talk extensively about the procedures involved in solving a crime. Anyone could get up and write a police procedural novel these days, throwing in just enough jargon, with the help of the hundred crime dramas on television. Steven Gore's A Criminal De [...]

    5. This was my first read of Steven Gore and therefore my first Harlan Donnally read. It was definitely a well plotted mystery as I was clueless until into the last 100 pages or so. The writing was intense and a bit overwhelming with the number of characters introduced.I felt the writer presented those of less than ethical character well. I didn't feel that same representation for Donnally's character. Other than I perceived he was ethical and faithful to his girlfriend. I just didn't feel he came [...]

    6. As the book opens Mark Hamlim, famed defense attorney, is hanging by his neck from the Fort Point lighthouse. Law enforcement believes justice may have been served.Hamlin began his career standing up for people who were wrongly accused or persecuted by dirty cops. But somewhere over the decades, his practice devolved. He started intimidating witnesses, suborning perjury, destroying evidence and laundering money.The police need to know whether this is a dangerous sexual encounter gone wrong or mu [...]

    7. I haven't yet read the first book in the series, Act of Deceit, but I didn't feel like I was missing anything and felt this read well as a stand-alone. A Criminal Defense is the second volume of a trilogy about a retired San Francisco cop, Harlan Donnally. I was drawn into the story and the characters were engaging. There were plot twists and turns, which I really enjoyed. I was in the mood for this type of read and it satisfied the need for action and thrills! 3.5 stars.

    8. This author thinks that criminal defense lawyers are really criminals, worse than their clients. They use knowingly perjured testimony to win. Lots of local San Francisco and Northern Cal. color, and good pacing. The key point is the character interviewing a witness; the hero realizes this is the killer. Why? I reread the interview twice. I have no idea why anyone would think he was the killer. Lots of red herrings and irrelevant plot twists.

    9. This is the first S.G. book I read. (Yeah, I know it's the second in a series). The author paints a vivid picture of certain (il)legal practices and it was interesting to follow their unraveling. San Francisco is described proficiently and the book moves along nicely. My main complain is his writing style: Many phrases I had to re-read several times to understand what he is trying to say. The long sentences and liberal use of commas don't help either. 3 1/2 stars.
