Against his better judgement, Arthur is determined to find out. But Deverell's characters crackle when facing each other in a court room as Beauchamp tries to redeem himself for playing it safe as a young lawyer when his client could face the death penalty. Oct 28, Richard Thompson rated it really liked it Shelves: A new chapter in the Arthur Beauchamp story. We were getting a bit bummed out by the end of Part Two, and wondered, if the book was going to continue spiraling into darkness and despair, we shouldn't cut our losses and move on to a new book.
I flipped ahead and sampled a few bits here and there and was able to recommend to Maggee that we soldier on. We're glad we did. The book used an interesting structural device. In earlier books Beauchamp has been shadowed by Wentworth Chance, a writer working A new chapter in the Arthur Beauchamp story.
In earlier books Beauchamp has been shadowed by Wentworth Chance, a writer working on a biography of the famour Vancouver lawyer. The main part of the story deals with Beauchamp's first murder trial in in which he is called upon to defend Gabriel Swift, a Native man from the Squamish Band accused of murdering Dermott Mulligan who just happens to have been one of Beauchamp's professors and mentors at UBC.
I minor grumble that I've had with Deverell throughout the series is his penchant for choosing goofy character names: Just had to get that off my chest. Nov 30, Perry Martin rated it did not like it. This audiobook is narrated by Steve Scherf. He does a good job. This book is slow and has no real tension. Scherf can do little more than read this book. I didn't care about any of the characters, I didn't care about the Canadian legal system. The story about a young lawyers lifetime of guilt over pleading a not guilty native Indian guilty for murder has no emotion. My research into this author shows this to be the 5th of 6 books in the Authur Beauchamp series.
I reviewed a book Mecca also writt This audiobook is narrated by Steve Scherf. I reviewed a book Mecca also written by this Canadian Author. I had some of the same complaints about that book but it was far better than this book. I may be kinder if I had known the characters but I am not sure it would help. It took me a long time to listen to this very long audiobook. The only incentive I had to finish the book is the fact that I received this from a publisher who asked for my honest review. I would like give the narrator Steve Scherf another chance with better material.
This book was received for an honest review. Feb 15, Joanne rated it really liked it. Faced with the dilemma of defending Swift for killing someone he admired greatly, Beauchamps nonetheless take the c As author W.
Faced with the dilemma of defending Swift for killing someone he admired greatly, Beauchamps nonetheless take the case. If he loses, Swift could be hanged. Prejudice, emotion, and alcohol all played a part during the trial and the life of Beauchamps, who is still haunted by the case that paved the way for his legal heroics so long ago. Can the past mistakes be atoned in ? Did Professor Mulligan commit suicide back in ? The ending will shock you. Sep 06, Judy rated it did not like it.
This is one novel that I wish I could give a range of ratings to as I really enjoyed Beauchamp and was quite taken by the plot. I certainly didn't figure out the ending! That said, I have to give this one star because I was so enormously disappointed with the unbelievable solution to the mystery that I wanted to scream! Great characters, great plot and subplots, horrid ending. Sorry, Deverell, you don't get a second chance!
Dec 08, Simon Ruddell rated it it was ok Shelves: A very frustrating book! Not believable at all. I kept reading hoping Deverell would redeem himself. Allow me to spoil the ending for you! The character who was murdered turns out not even to be dead! The person accused of his murder, Gabriel Swift, deserved the death sentence for being such a monumental bore! Oct 22, Bernie Charbonneau rated it really liked it Shelves: First time reading a novel by this author.
It was a very good plot that had me turning the pages to the end. I will have to read previous novels with the Arthur Beauchamp character.
I'll See You in My Dreams
It just seemed that you have come across this type of person in your life. Well written with just enough intrigue to keep you guessing to the end with a great finish. Jan 14, Karin rated it really liked it. The self-deprecating at times self-flagellating protagonist is ultimately very likeable. The plot appealed to me on many levels, I'm Canadian, a Law Clerk, work with the First Nations division of Health Canada and have Mik'maq on "the other side of the blanket".
The bits of legal procedure were informative and integral to the story and the end was a good twist. Nov 18, Sharon rated it liked it Shelves: I love William Deverell so it hurts me to say that this book did not engage me. I forced myself to finish it. Maybe it was just too much detail, I don't know, maybe beating a drum too long and too loud.
I was very pleased to be done with it. Overall, Deverell has seldom disappointed. And, in it's defense, I loved the end. Jan 12, Bev rated it really liked it. How to write a great review. The review must be at least 50 characters long.
