Firstly to the good parts of The Lawyer. The plot is clever, and the novel starts and finishes well.
However, because of typos, poor grammar and the absence of punctuation it wasn’t easy to complete this novel. Further, the author presumes his readers are dumb and tells rather than shows. It also slows to a snail’s pace while readers are given history lessons about Nelson and the tunnel, that add nothing to the story. The pace of a novel of this type is critical, however, at the best it is stilted, and at the worst, annoyingly slow.
If this novel was edited, it was an inadequate job. With a good edit, it could lose 20,000 words and be a gripping, fast-paced read.
Stephen King recommends that all authors read Part 2 Section 18 of Strunk and White, which is headed, “Omit needless words.” Unfortunately, there are countless ‘needless words’ in The Lawyer.
This is the author’s first novel, and it shows...
Poorly written to the extent I got very frustrated at the poor spelling, bad grammar and just plain incorrect info. Examples: "He pored a cup of coffee" ????? Repeatedly (dozens and dozens of times) to the British intelligence service MI5 as M15..... this is just plain sloppy. Get an editor or get a different career.
I really enjoyed the book, but the author's punctuation is abysmal, and the book would have benefitted from a bit of editing to get rid of amateurish phrasing. But, I liked the storyline and felt I learned a few things about business law, car racing, and such.
