    As a legal thriller, Simple Intent is a million miles away from the sort of novel I d normally find myself reading It s not that I have anything against the genre, it s just that I ve never really been attracted to it That said, I enjoyed this book It s deliberately action packed, and filled with larger than life characters whose words and deeds only occasionally overstep the line between entertaining drama and clich The narrative voice is consistently engaging, suffused with a wry humour As a legal thriller, Simple Intent is a million miles away from the sort of novel I d normally find myself reading It s not that I have anything against the genre, it s just that I ve never really been attracted to it That said, I enjoyed this book It s deliberately action packed, and filled with larger than life characters whose words and deeds only occasionally overstep the line between entertaining drama and clich The narrative voice is consistently engaging, suffused with a wry humour which for me was a big part of the reading experience, as were the unexpected spiritual interludes I struggled on occasion to keep up with the twists, turns, and complex back stories, but that saysabout me than this pacey and absorbing novel

    Very good first novel Linda draws you in Very believeable characters.The end was a bit rushed, and I m giving it four stars because I think she can do better.Looking forward to reading her next book.
