Had this on on hold for a long period so anticipation exceeded reality. I quit half way through. Back to Michael Connelly, Craig Johnson, Lee Childs etc and the occasional Stephen King. These guys write page turners.

The book is fun to read and it is fast-paced, but unfortunately, it's like the author lost track of who his characters were and he insists on staying with the plot from his two previous books. Two lawyers on the older side of middle age battling terrorists, arm dealers, and world-class assassins and saving the world from nuclear blasts, asteroids crashing into Earth, etc. Credibility can be stretched but this almost went into the science fiction genre

"Though Vince Flynn doesn't write legal thrillers, author Steve Martini manages to mix courtroom drama with the kinds of high-concept, high-stakes adventures that Flynn is known for. In Trader of Secrets, defence attorney Paul Madriani covers the globe in his attempts to find two missing NASA scientists and stop an assassin he knows all too well whose list of targets includes Paul's daughter. This is the 12th (and most recent) in the series, so if you want to start at the beginning, pick up Compelling Evidence. To learn more about Paul's history with the assassin, try Guardian of Lies."

Martini's courtroom novels were better than this farfetched story.

I have read a number of Martini's books and found them entertaining. This one, however, has too many one-in-a-million possibilities stacked one after another for the events to be believable. Sad - it reminds me of Jeffery Deaver's recent work.
