Book Review: Attorney-Client Privilege by Pamela Samuels Young

Vernetta Henderson returns in this suspenseful thriller from Pamela Samuels Young.

When Vernetta takes on a case of gender discrimination against a large retail chain, she's certain this is an open and shut case where she'll be victorious. When one of her clients in the case is murdered, and evidence  goes missing, Vernetta wants to see justice served more than anything. Learning she's going up against the unscrupulous Girlie Cortez, who is representing Big Buy in the case, certainly isn't going to make Vernetta's job any easier.

Attorney-Client Privilege is another fabulous installment in this series by Pamela Samuels Young. As she has done with other Vernetta Henderson books, Young hooks you with a superb plot that unravels to a satisfying conclusion thanks to her skillful storytelling. The other thing that the author does so well is blend Vernetta's personal and professional lives into the story. Vernetta and her husband, Jefferson, face new challenges. Her best friend, Special, has troubles of her own that are tied in some ways to Vernetta's woes. It's tremendously satisfying to watch these characters develop.

Girlie Cortez has to be the most complex character in this story. Through most of it, I couldn't stand her, but as the story played out, the reader could see why she acted the way she did--even if she didn't approve or like it. I would love to see Girlie pop up in a future installment of this series.

If you're looking for a legal thriller that keeps you guessing until the very end, you won't want to pass up Attorney-Client Privilege by Pamela Samuels Young. Her work is some of the best in this genre.
