Sabin Willett keeps his story of deal makers and breakers zooming at a Concorde pace, plot zigging and zagging out of one dangerous hot zone into another. The Betrayal" starts great but starts to unravel for me with the change in point of view (From third person to Isabel's first person, and the lack of clarity in that change). I'm also bothered by the increasing obscurity in sequence of events that occur around the same time as the POV change.

At 7:00 am in a Boston boardroom, there's a disaster in the making. High in an office tower in the heart of the financial district, lawyers and bankers are fighting a deadline to close an $840,000,000 leveraged buyout.  Under the pressure of the crowded agenda, no one notices that a zero has been dropped from the mortgage document.  The papers are signed, cheers and applause roar from the boardroom--and the fuse of a time bomb is lit.  When it explodes, there will be hell to pay.  As the partners of Freer, Motley, the presiding law firm, will discover, they are collectively and personally liable to their client to make up the multimillion-dollar shortfall.And so begins an accelerating and dire chain of events.  Freer, Motley's senior partner is found dead, and its brightest young associate is charged with murder.  The firm needs a fall guy, and John Shepard, brilliant but arrogant--and recently passed over for partner--fills the role to perfection.  Defending John Shepard in a Boston court is going to be a career buster.  No one wants the job, and no one understands why Ed Mulcahy accepts the case, even if he is Shepard's friend--but they don't know that he's already in way too deep to walk away.On a par with Scott Turow's Presumed Innocent, The Deal is the most exciting new legal thriller from a first-time author to be published in years.  Written by a young partner with one of Boston's prestigious old firms, it is an utterly authentic view of the city's judicial system, from the ex-con informants, paid for their evidence, to the district attorney who needs a conviction for the sake of his political career.  It is also the compelling story of two young lawyers--a defendant and his attorney--realizing too late that they are up against an old-guard establishment more powerful than they could ever imagined.

C'mon Hollywood? What are you waiting for? Money, love, romance, intrigue, suspense, a mind-twisting puzzle that leaves you wondering at the end whether it's really over...come on...This is a great book, a great story, and characters who are truly REAL and not ... ....Sabin Willett needs to resurrect these characters for another round...
Ed Mulcahy, the newest partner at the tony Boston law firm of Freer Motley, has agreed to defend the man who may have murdered the firm's recently deposed managing director. To do so, he won't get paid, he will lose his job, and will have to face his own personal demons to find the footing he needs to bring this case not only to trial but to a verdict that you may still question even after you've finished the last page.

Unfortunately I won't be able to trust your reviews in the future. Comparing this guy Willett to Grisham---are you kidding me? I struggled through 16% before giving up. Terribly confusing character development. Can I get a refund? I went back and read the reviews to be sure I was reading the same book.

I read this straight through, begrudging time wasted for meals and other necessary interruptions. Well-plotted with believable characters, the story drew me in and would not let go.

I read Willett's second book, "The Betrayal," before his first novel, "The Deal," and I can report that the first was as good as the second. Marvelous style, and a fine ability to walk the reader through complex legal issues. Highly recommended thriller.

Less than I hoped for. I wanted to like the characters, but they felt hollow

IT'S GOOD AND IF YOUR A LAWYER IT'S EVEN BETTER.

I am a lawyer. Lawyers come in many ways. Litigators, corporate, prosecutors, senior corporate, associates, district attorneys, paralegals <well they are not lawyers> and others. They all do different things, as distinct as a bromelia is from an emu. Mr. Willett places them all here. And from my experience, he does a good job with them. They are funny per se. I don't think that this is a lawyers-only humor. The story is set in Boston. Imagine a deal whereby a bank gives some people money to buy a company. And, as you know, banks do not lend money, big money that is, without some collateral. Well the collateral is a big building in Manhattan. And some lawyer made a mistake whereby the collateral is worth $800,000,000 less than it is suppose to be worth. And then there is a murder. All hell breaks loose. The Harvard attorney who dealt the deal is indicted, his Northeastern pupil has to defend him, people get fired, crippled techies are shot at, and time is of the essence. Great story. Most people will read it more than once. I did. Trust me on this one.
This is a fast-paced Boston legal intrigue. There is a mega-deal with an apparent typo - that hands $830,000,000 back to the buyer. No one knows who was responsible at the law firm for the (?)misprint in the deal. Then the senior partner on the deal is found murdered, and his associate is (?falsely) accused. He appeals to his buddy to defend him with only 13 days to build a case... It is superbly written - with suspense and excellent dramatic timing that leaves you hanging on the edge of your seat. It has a wonderful Boston feel, a background love story - I loved it.
