"How to Lost a Client" by Becky A. Bartness

"How to Lost a Client" by Becky A. Bartness could have been a phenomenal book if the subject of it were changed. The story is about a middle-aged lawyer that starts her own defense firm in Phoenix. She goes on to represent the leader of a prostitution ring and finds mystery when the ring's previous attorney if found dead. Several facetious new characters emerge to add comedy to the book, and everyone interacts on a humorous level until the murderer is revealed and put to justice. Bartness has a truly excellent style of writing that flows and is easy to read. However, given that there are swear words, a prostitution theme, and several sexually inappropriate parts of the book, this work is sub-par. If Bartness took time to write a lawyer book without such levels of lasciviousness, it would probably be good.
