Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Fatal Flaw is an explosive mix of love gone wrong, betrayal, and murder. With high wit and perfect pitch, Lashner keeps the reader spellbound.” Harlan Coben
“Lashner proves that John Grisham isn’t the only lawyer/author who can win over a jury of readers…Flaw wins a favorable verdict for its not-so-open-and-shut case.” Entertainment Weekly
“What a good book. A wonderful cast of characters, a raging whodunit frosted with sex, a burning page-turner, but more than all that, Hostile Witness is, at last, a book that portrays the soul of a lawyer.” Gerry Spense 
“Devilishly complex, meticulously plotted thriller that keeps us guessing right up to the final scenes…The author’s prose style achieves a rare lyricism in places, and his characters are deep pools of mystery. A first-rate thriller.” Booklist
“Propulsive.” People
“Dramatic and clever.” Philadelphia Inquirer 
“An unforgettable hero.”  Denver Post
“Highly readable…rich and resonant first person narrative...the character of Carl has aged like fine wine…He’s a provocative and entertaining guide.”  Publishers Weekly
“A crackerjack court drama.”  Seattle Post-Intelligencer
“The complicated plot will keep you turning pages.”  Philadelphia Daily News
