Apparently this is not the first book in the Arthur Beauchamp series. There were many stories, characters and backgrounds that I just did not follow. I did like the sneaky way Arthur presented his case both at the Skylar trial and especially the Dog trial. I'm thinking that if I went back and read the others in this series that I would enjoy it even more. That's not to say this one wasn't entertaining in parts, but there were some parts I just didn't get.
Thank you ECW Press and Net Galley for providing me with this free e-galley in exchange for an honest review.
