Disclaimer: I marked "no sexual content" because I stopped reading before there was any opportunity for some to happen.

I used to love his courtroom novels. This...there was a decent plot, but I found myself checking if there was a co-author listed, looking for some explanation of the irritating writing style. Mixed metaphors all over the place, descriptions of women that were cliched and sexist ("all her curves were in the right places"? Really? Even for 2011, this is hackneyed). The women are just not well-characterized at all, their dialogue and actions annoyingly unrealistic. If I find myself asking "Why did she do that? Who does that??" over and over, there's a problem. And who needs a play by play description about how a character looks up a name online (excuse me--on the World Wide Web)? Complete with thumb-scrolling? The beginning was a nice, tight, suspenseful read and I loved that the initial character was fleshed out so completely. Even used that as an example of thoughtful characterization of a minor figure. The first part was the Steve Martini I remembered. Then it just took a nose dive and became unreadable.

"The Rule of Nine" takes Paul Madriani into the world of the United States Supreme Court. But more that that, it takes him into a world that captures the reader in what seems to be a Tom Clancy story, starring Jack Ryan. This book, is the second in a series that takes Paul away from the courtroom, and into the world of international intrigue. It continues the story of Liquida, a Mexican "Hit Man", also called the "Mexicutioner" who appeared in Martini's previous book "Guardian of Lies." Liquida now is hired to do another job, and Paul becomes one of his targets. Rather than tell you more about the story, I will tell you that it most certainly captured me. I simply could not close the book, but had to keep reading, as I had with such Clancy books as "Hunt for Red October" and "Clear and Present Danger." I'm delighted that I no longer have to read about Paul Madriani's Courtroom dramas, but can follow him around the world. I have become very fond of Paul, his partner Harry, and his investigator Herman, as well as reading about his daughter Sarah as she reaches college age. Thanks Steve for a really good read. Thanks Amazon for allowing me to tell others about these books.

This sequel to "The Guardian of Lies" once again takes Paul Madriani and friends into the world of international intrigue and pits him against an old enemy, the assassin Liquida. The epitome of evil, Liquida sends a message by killing one of Sarah Madriani's friends. As a result, Madriani decides to try and track him down rather than wait for what's clearly next - an attack on Sarah. In pursuing the one lead he has, he stumbles across a complicated terrorist plot that takes him to Puerto Rico and Washington, DC.

The plot unfolded at a fast pace and really kept my attention. Through most of the story, Madriani works with Herman (his private investigator) in the search and Herman's knowledge makes up for what Madriani doesn't know about the more action-oriented side of things. He's also working with Joselyn Cole, another attorney who's involved in a nuclear watchdog organization. He's got information she needs and vice versa. The subplot of a relationship between them is interesting but I'm not sure it's going to be a long-term thing.

I have to give Martini credit for trying to devise new plot lines for his characters but I think I'd prefer it if he'd return to what he excels at which is courtroom drama. Also, one of the things I really like about the Madriani series is the banter between Madriani and his partner Harry Hinds and there just wasn't enough of it in this book.

The end is a real cliff-hanger so I guess I'll be waiting for the next book to see what happens!

I have always enjoyed Steve Martini's books and in particular the Paul Madriani cast of characters, however I am truly sick of the reoccurance of "Liquida" and wish Martini would kill him off already. It is clear from the book's ending (or lack of ending) that we will have to revisit Liquida in Martini's next novel and I am growing bored with that. Further, in a similar fashion to Stuart Woods (author of the Stone Barrington novels) Martini needs to reign his plots back in as international intrigue and spydom are not why most have us have enjoyed the Madriani novels of the past. While unlike Woods Martini has kept his main characters likeable his plots are another matter. What's next? Will Madriani become a consultant with the FBI too? As I stated in my Woods review, so often authors in print and television media try to out do themselves with each passing book. Will someone please tell them this is not necessary - when you have a good series going at least this reader will not grow bored with plausible mystries and courtroom dramas. I do however tire of over the top fanciful plot lines. Please Steve kill off Liquida and stay in the country for future novels. Your books used to be the ideal in their gendre don't follow the Stuart Woods lead and turn Madriani into a pseudo international spy. I know we live in an era of terroist threats but most of us read to escape reality not be flogged with it.
