This is the first of a series about Boston-based lawyer Scott Finn and his circle of friends, clients and enemies. At this point, he's a fast-rising associate in a big, pricy law firm although based on his background, he doesn't fit the usual ivy league pattern. In the course of his adventure, he first meets Kozlowski, who reappears as an important character in the later books. It's a somewhat formulaic crime story, beginning with a murder, incorporating some of the usual stock characters; but it's very well written and the characters are better developed than is usual for this genre. A well constructed plot that moves quickly and keeps the reader fully engaged as underlying facts are revealed. Perhaps not quite as good as "Among Thieves" which comes later, but still good entertainment.
Run of the mill storytelling, barely mediocre plot, no surprises and some muddling paths to the end. It's not terrible but it's not that good either.
Characterization is very 80's style and very cheesy...lead "stars" are good looking, brilliant etc etc...
