From the Publisher: 
Lawyer Jack Bryant retires early to Fort Worth to kick back, relax and watch his son play football at TCU. Bored with retirement he opens a pro bono office in his RV. When Jack finds an elderly widow at his doorstep, clutching a check for life insurance proceeds on her husband but payable to his former employer, Jack files a civil suit to collect the benefits rightfully due the widow. A seemingly accidental death of his client’s husband thrusts Jack into a vortex of serial killings. He and his new love interest find themselves targets in the same murder for hire scheme. To stop the killings Jack must unravel what in their past makes certain people worth more dead than alive.

I liked this legal thriller.  Once I got used to the writing style (a little choppy - lack of transitions), I cruised through it.  The term "dead peasants" was interesting to learn about, and I enjoyed the courtroom scenes.  Sadly, there was a chunk of the plot that was unbelievable, but I went with it and ended up really enjoying the book.  I would definitely read another book written by Thompson.

My thanks go to Partners in Crime Tours for sending me this eBook.
