A Serious Mistake Reviews
Insight into Some Lawyers’ PsychesMr. Southers, the author of this novel, is a Texas Lawyer and served the Texas Grievance Committee for ten years, and for anyone interested in some of the shannigans of lawyers and judges, this is a story that may entertain you.Scott Lonnigan was the prominent attorney character in this book. His serious mistake was that his ex-brother-in-law, Wayne, dropped off a bag of cocaine on Scott’s desk just as Scott was leaving to attend his Grievance Committee hearings and Scott didn’t have time to force Wayne to take it with him. Wayne said the cops were after him because of his using and distributing drugs and promised Scott he would return to the office and get the bag. He didn’t and Scott forgot about it because of the several hearings that day before the Grievance Committee. The Grievance Committee monitors and hears all grievances against attorneys in the State of Texas, and makes a judgment as to whether the accused attorney should be adjudged innocent, or have his law license suspended for a period of time or disbarred. In this particular book of the series, there were several cases heard and for anyone interested in how the law works when manipulated in the hands of both sincere and insincere attorneys and judges, you will probably find this Book 2 interesting and informative. The weakness in the novel is that there has to be considerable foundation laid in order for the reader to understand what is at stake. I enjoyed it very much.
I read this book as a first-reads book and I have to be honest and say that I really did not enjoy reading it. I am not really sure what the plot of this book was even about. The "serious mistake" the main character makes resulted in only a few chapters worth of story. The remainder of the book is made up of random stories. The book did not flow well at all. The dialogue between characters reminded me of the conversations that occur in info-mercials. I felt that the author spent too much time trying to show the reader that he is familiar with the law. Sorry for the harsh review but this book really got on my nerves.
I want to start off by saying I won this book as a First-Reads. I honestly did not care for the book at all. The story didn't flow well at all. It seemed more like it was made up of 4 or 5 short stories. The words "A Serious Mistake" which is the title of the book were also used way too many times throughout the book. I did grow to like Scott Lonnigan than main character but I didn't much care for anyone else. This is probably not a book that I will think much about now that I'm done reading it. Sorry!!!
Great book - can't wait for others in the series. Easy to read and holds your attention all the way.
