    Hell Bent is the twenty fourth book to feature Boston attorney Brady Coyne, and it ranks among the best of the entries For those who haven t met him, Coyne is a sole practitioner with a client list that consists mostly of fairly well heeled Bostonians and a secretary named Julie, who keeps his professional life in some semblance of order He s long divorced and usually involved with an attractive female.As Brady comments in this book, he was trained to be a lawyer, but his DNA programmed him Hell Bent is the twenty fourth book to feature Boston attorney Brady Coyne, and it ranks among the best of the entries For those who haven t met him, Coyne is a sole practitioner with a client list that consists mostly of fairly well heeled Bostonians and a secretary named Julie, who keeps his professional life in some semblance of order He s long divorced and usually involved with an attractive female.As Brady comments in this book, he was trained to be a lawyer, but his DNA programmed him to be a fisherman In this book, though, unlike most of the others, Brady has no time for fishing After an absence of several years, an old girlfriend, Alex Shaw, walks back into Brady s life and asks him to represent her brother, Gus Gus is a photojournalist who lost a hand, and thus his profession, in an explosion in Iraq Not surprisingly he comes back a changed man and the changes are not for the better.Gus is suffering from PTSD he s a stranger to his wife and daughters, and a menace to them and to himself as well His wife sues for divorce and secures a restraining order against him, but Gus doesn t care He s perfectly willing to give her everything he cares about nothing any longer Alex wants Brady to protect Gus s interests in the divorce, and Gus reluctantly agrees to let Brady represent him.Almost immediately thereafter, though, Gus is found shot to death, the victim of an apparent suicide The cops and everyone else sign off on the case, but Alex refuses to believe that her brother would kill himself Brady isn t sure, but Alex has walked back into his life four months after his latest girlfriend walked out of it There s still a spark between Alex and Brady and so he agrees to investigate.Inevitably, things arecomplicated than they initially appear, and Brady finds himself drawn into a complex and dangerous situation The result is a book in which the urgency mounts and which is increasingly difficult to put down Long time fans of the series will enjoy Hell Bent , but it will also appeal to fans of crime fiction who have never sampled Tapply s work before view spoiler It was especially nice to see the subplot involving Coyne s love life in this book Through the last several books, Tapply had increasingly developed at least to my mind what I can only describe as a Susan Silverman problem Brady s girlfriend in the last few books was growing increasingly tiresome, and every time she appeared it was like listening to someone drag their fingernails down a chalkboard Unlike Robert B Parker, Tapply thankfully dealt with the problem and booted her out for good I hope, but then that s just one reader s opinion hide spoiler

    One of the things I find interesting about this series is some of the ordinary happenings that take place in Brady s life as the main plot line is unfolding In this case, while he laments the loss of his lady who has moved across country to assist her ailing father and a former love asks him to represent her brother in a divorce, an elderly couple asks him to sue a moving company who damaged much of their valuables during a move Problem is the company folded their tent, closed down the Bosto One of the things I find interesting about this series is some of the ordinary happenings that take place in Brady s life as the main plot line is unfolding In this case, while he laments the loss of his lady who has moved across country to assist her ailing father and a former love asks him to represent her brother in a divorce, an elderly couple asks him to sue a moving company who damaged much of their valuables during a move Problem is the company folded their tent, closed down the Boston operation and re opened under a different corporate name in New Hampshire While that issue unfolds well in the background, Brady attempts to work with the divorce client, a PTSD suffering photojournalist who lost a hand in the fighting and now can t work a camera Client feels he deserves whatever is coming to him in a divorce action so not really putting up much of a defense No one except his sister is really surprised when the brother apparently commits suicide and that is how it is labeled by the police and the medical examiner She however, is not convinced and convinces Brady to keep working on it He agrees on the condition that she stay out of the way but you know that is not going to happen.A great series of the mental popcorn variety entertaining and easy to digest This would probably be a good book to start with despite it being about 27th in the series Enough of a stand alone but still providing a good overview of the character As a former Bostonian, I tend to enjoy the sense of place Tapply so artfully supplies

    Boston attorney Brady Coyne is a sympathetic and entertaining character His tendency, at least in the few novels in this series that I ve read, leans decidedlytowards sleuthing and less towards the courtroom So, no Lincoln Lawyer here, but a lot of fun to read regardless.Tapply does a great job of setting the scenes and place, even if he gets carried away with descriptions of food that s being prepared, served, and devoured Sometimes it feltthan needed, almost filler ish, but I Boston attorney Brady Coyne is a sympathetic and entertaining character His tendency, at least in the few novels in this series that I ve read, leans decidedlytowards sleuthing and less towards the courtroom So, no Lincoln Lawyer here, but a lot of fun to read regardless.Tapply does a great job of setting the scenes and place, even if he gets carried away with descriptions of food that s being prepared, served, and devoured Sometimes it feltthan needed, almost filler ish, but I take the good with the so so Coyne rekindles a relationship with Alex Shaw, a former flame who asks for his help representing her brother, Gus, through a messy divorce Gus suffers from PTSD after having lost his right hand while working as a photojournalist in Iraq He also hasgoing on than meets the eye, especially once the plot moves quickly into high gear To saywould spoil some of the story, so just take my word for it.The relationship between Brady and Alex is interesting, but again, the tension and recurrent testy exchanges began to wear thin One relationship that remains charming throughout, however, is that between Brady and his dog I enjoyed Brady s loyalty to being home at certain times to let the dog out to do his business, give him food and treats, etc Having been a dog owner, I could relate.The story line is interesting and has a nice twist to it It s a bit over the top at times, but again, forgivable Brady has a few recurring exchanges interactions with Det Horowitz of the State Police a gruff, coffee donuts kind of cop who, beneath the prickly exterior, is a truly good guy and friend These interludes augment the feel of the story and makes all the characters a bitrelatable Overall, this is another very enjoyable little book in the series with which I m becoming acquainted You might enjoy doing so as well Happy Thanksgiving

    I guess a lot of people like this kind of professional personal dual plot kind of thing I don t, particularly when the two intersect, with old girlfriend, ex wife, cousin, etc., being the reason for the professional The Eppings subplot is fun, but the characters pretty one dimensional And that s a shame, because some of them would be really ripe for plumbing But there s not time, since all the personal stuff intrudes Just not my cup of tea.

    This book isn t as exciting as the title and information make you think It also doesn t go very deep into the feelings of the persons wich made it hard for me to empathize with them.
