SPECIAL CIRCUMSTANCES - G Sheldon Siegel – 2nd in series
Attorney Mike Daley and Rosie, his ex-wife and law partner, are hired to defend Skipper Gates, the San Francisco DA. Skipper is an
unlikable political type who is accused of murdering a male prostitute with whom he spent the night. Not only will this scandal potentially ruin Skipper's career, but he could conceivable be sent to Death Row if a jury finds him guilty and special circumstances are invoked.
The negatives – it didn’t seem that this would have been considered a 1st degree homicide, particularly with special circumstances and I felt the ending was very weak. The positives – I love the characters of Mike and Rosie, I enjoy his humor, and he certainly knows San Francisco. I’ll definitely keep reading Siegel, but his wasn’t his best.
