So I decided to read a book by Mr. Suzanne Brockmann, aka Ed Gaffney

So I decided to read a book by Mr. Suzanne Brockmann, aka Ed Gaffney. I figured the publishing company bankrolled him as a thank you to SB for the millions of dollars she has brought in over the years. The verdict? To aforementioned publishing company I say, "great investment!"

Zack and Terry Series, Book 1 · Zack and Terry. Ed Gaffney took ten years of work as a criminal lawyer, added an overactive imagination, and came up with a new career as a novelist More about Ed Gaffney.

In a New England courtroom, two young defense lawyers face a trial they cannot win. For attorneys Zack Wilson and Terry Tallach, partners and best friends, it seems an open-and-shut case. Their client confessed to a horrific multiple homicide–and Zack and Terry have only one hope: to spare him from the death penalty. But even that is a long shot…until the case takes a sudden, strange turn. The two lawyers may have stumbled on a loophole: their client had a secret motive for his indefensible act–a motive that might even free him if Zack and Terry can pull off an ingenious defense.But as the media descend on a quiet Massachusetts town, and as Zack and Terry fight to save their client’s life, a surprise witness turns the trial into something no one could have predicted. Because only he can put all the pieces of an astounding puzzle together–and expose a conspiracy that is more shocking, far-reaching, and treacherous than anyone could guess.

Wow, White House intrigue (complete with honorable reluctant CIC), terrorist plots (foiled? not foiled? read the book!), courtroom drama, seemingly unrelated petty crimes, first amendment threats, will the author EVER be able to tie this all together?

Yes, Ed Gaffney does tie it all together, and beautifully so. I literally could not put this down till I got to the last page. I know for a fact that there must be some creative genius microbes in the Gaffney/Brockmann household.

It was a very good,entertaining read. I had a hard time starting it because of everything that was going on but once I started I couldn't wait to find out what happens to all the characters.
I don't dislike this author since this was his first book, but I had a lot of trouble with it. So many authors seem to think it advisable to jump back and forth in time, but this was way too much. If I'm not mistaken, he had actual trial dialogue before the trial actually started and then had too much superfluous info in there. Most readers are adept and understand trial procedures so I did a lot of skimming. He really had a good plot going on, but somehow it was just overdone and stretched the imagination beyond my limits. I was just surprised when looking up this book to find he has written others. Somehow I didn't think that would happen, but I may give him another try, after I read your reviews of his later books. Some of you are too generous, but I know you don't want to hurt feelings. I generally write my favorite authors directly and of course they are full of praise!!
I picked up Premeditated Murder, the first novel by lawyer-author Ed Gaffney, because I'd heard of him through his wife Suzanne Brockmann, one of my favorite romantic suspense authors. Overall I found the book readable and the main characters enjoyable, although the plot of the story ended up being sort of far-fetched and some of the storylines almost totally extraneous.

The main plot involves two close friends and law partners, Zack Wilson and Terry Tallach, who take on a nightmare indigent defense case. The perpetrator freely admits to a massacre in which he shot 6 people dead in cold blood, and further admits to carefully planning and preparing to carry it out. He has a reason for his behavior but it is nearly unbelievable--yet it is the only shot the lawyers have at avoiding a near certain guilty verdict and death penalty.

Intertwined with this is a tumble of other plots--one involving a likeable US President-by-accident who uncovers a frightening top level government plot, an aspiring investigative reporter in Detroit who is doing her best to figure out another branch of that plot, and a planned terrorist attack on the Fourth of July--that all somehow come together in the murder case. Certain of the storylines, such as one involving a cop and an injured teenager, ended up going nowhere, and others, like the one with the reporter, were sketchy. Their only relevance seems to be in setting up characters for later reappearances.

Nevertheless I did find myself turning pages quickly even though I was less than totally satisfied by the end. I did like the main characters well enough to try another Gaffney book, and hope that the potential I see in the pacing, dialogue and likeable characters develops as he continues to write.
In Northampton, Massachusetts a big black man Calvin Thompson waited next door for the right moment to kill six men. He fired 120 bullets at them and received two back. District Attorney Fran O'Neill feels he has a perfect case for premeditated murder and plans to prosecute Calvin under the newly enacted death penalty law.

Attorneys Terry Tallach and Zach Wilson defend Calvin, who confessed he carried out his plan and killed the six. They see little hope of getting an acquittal so they lean towards an insanity plea as the legal team prepares for septuagenarian Judge Cottonwood, whose bench bias against alleged criminals is well known since his mother was raped and murdered. Instead of a straightforward case, Zach and Terry uncover a terrorist plot in which the six dead men were participants and a seventh member is still going ahead with destructive plans for Independence Day that ties in to a war in Africa that involves the White House.

This is a deep legal thriller that at its best in the court scenes and when the lawyers meet with their client. The media reaction is prejudicial as the Boston Post displays a picture of a bloody terrorizing looking Cal whom their headline calls Monster. Though the story line seems a bit over the top with the ties to the Oval Office the audience will not care as along with Terry and Zach fans will want to know the truth before the spin maestros twist it beyond comprehension. Ed Gaffney writes a fabulous tale that grips readers from the moment Judge Cottonwood shows his bench bias and never slows down until the confrontation with number seven.

I foolishly thought I could read just a couple of chapters of this book before bed ... several hours and no sleep later, I finally finished this book. What's so compelling, I wonder, that I get no sleep? I'm 32, I should know better. I already know the man is guilty! But the finding out of not only why things happened but how it plays out is a fascinating tale.

What happens in society when there is a war on terror? What shakes out? Who is really guilty, who is really innocent? Does the judge care, and will he even listen to enough to find out? Read Premeditated Murder by Ed Gaffney and you will know the answers. The irreverent style and quirky humor add a liveliness to this courtroom drama that I doubt would be quite as fun in real life.

I only rated the book 4 stars because there is room for improvement - the scenes can be a little choppy, but the storytelling, pacing, and voice are first rate. I hear Ed's working on another book - and I'll be buying that one too.
