Solid Legal Liability..Stand Alone

The Fleeing Felon (Daniel Mendoza Thrillers Book 2)
A solid legal liability story about a Native American ex-con, drug dealer, father who is killed in a motorcycle accident when he hits a highway repair truck is parked across 2 lanes. The book follows the liability issues of the legal case that unfolds and the issues of the people's lives associated with the case. The book accurately represent the daily tasks of lawyers and associated professionals. This book works well as a stand alone, even though it is #2 in the author's series. I look forward to going to London in the next story with this team. (Notes to author: more food description please, keep writing : - > )

Excellent legal thriller! I loved it!

Frederick Prato was involved in some pretty nefariousness business, things that put him on the wrong side of a lot of people. When he’s involved in a fatal crash, questions abound. His family and girlfriend want answers. When they sue to get them, it falls to attorney Daniel Mendoza and his team to sort it out. The Fleeing Felon is my second Daniel Maldonado legal thriller and it will absolutely not be my last! Written as only an insider can, I was fascinated by the details, the dealings, and what I am sure is more fact that fiction! I thought the characters were extremely well developed, with a good balance between likable, not so much, redeemable and a few you want to leave in the desert! The plot was fantastic! It really made me think, and as with my first Daniel Maldonado thriller, I guessed wrong again! You got me! But boy, the journey was so worth it and in my defense, there WERE plenty of potential suspects from which to choose! I really can’t say more without indulging in spoilers so let me just say that this one challenged me, made me think, made me feel, and made me happier after listening than before! Five stars!

Daniel Mendoza rights a wrong again

The Fleeing Felon is the 2nd in the Daniel Mendoza courtroom thriller series by Daniel Maldonado. The sort is about the legal aspects of a deadly traffic accident and how the situation is unraveled. As with any unexpected death and wrongful death lawsuit, are a lot of interpersonal drama between the characters. Its entertaining and educational! The minor story line with Daniel and his ex-wife and stepson seemed emotionally cruel to Daniel. It seemed out of character for him to be so wimpy. The narration by Paul David was very good. I enjoyed this book and look forward the next book.

I am seeing RED!!!

The females were disappointing. Christine was a manipulative user. She didn't let Daniel see the child he helped raise, but has the gall to ask him to pay for half the wedding. And, if that's not dirty enough she asks him not to attend!!! Ridiculous. I'm seeing red. Daniel was weak and a doormat for the women in his personal life.
Kailyn was too weak also. Her dad was selfish , arrogant, condescending and evil trying to control her and her in laws, not to mention trying to get custody of the kids. I didn't like the outcome with everyone giving in to Edgar. SMH.
I am so disappointed in these people!! Too many concessions given. I'm furious. After listening to this I am very disappointed and disillusioned in people. I am so mad at most of these characters!!! I voluntarily listened to a free copy of this and am giving an honest review. The narrator did a great job bringing the characters and story to life.

Excellent

This second story in the Daniel Mendoza saga is excellent, unlike book 1 which I thought was a little slow this one gets doing fairly quickly and the new characters are well defined and all play their part. As usual no spoilers from me but I would highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a good legal thriller, it is informative and obviously well researched, Daniel Maldonado at his best. Once again Paul David does a great job of the narration bringing all the characters to life. *****
I was kindly given a promo copy of this book by the author and leave this honest and unbiased review.

Really interesting - learnt a lot

As always with a book by this author I learn a lot about the American justice system whilst getting an entertaining story with well developed characters.

At first it took me a while to get used to the narration but then it worked for me.

I was given a free copy by the author but this in no way impacted my review.
