"Engaging serial killer - police investigative tale"
In Los Angeles County a serial killer has declared OPEN
SEASON ON LAWYERS. Homicides are mounting as attorneys
with track records for abusing justice to win cases for
their clients are eradicated one at a time. LAPD Detective
Joanna Davis leads the investigation, but in spite of
several more murders and interviews of friends and families
of the victims, clues remain lacking.
Finally, Joanna begins to make progress, but her deadly foe
follows her every move even as he aces another lawyer or
two. Soon Joanna has a suspect, but will she find concrete
evidence before he takes a detour and adds a police officer
to his murderous list?
OPEN SEASON ON LAWYERS is an engaging serial killer -
police investigative tale that is fun to read, but falls a
bit short of the mark of a great satire. The story line
engages the audience though there seems too many murders
cluttering the cat and mouse game between the killer and
the detective. The irony of this novel is that Taffy
Cannon clearly provides an entertaining tale that readers
will fully enjoy as an evening of escapism, but misses the
classic parody mantle that it could have become.
