Bodily Harm Review

Seattle attorney David Sloane was on his way to hear the verdict in a multi-million dollar case against well-regarded pediatrician Peter Douvalidis, blamed for the death of a young boy, when he heard disturbing news. Widely known as the lawyer who never loses, he knew he had probably won the case. His uneasiness with the probable verdict grew when he learned from toy designer Kyle Horgan that, not only was the pediatrician not responsible, but Horgan claimed he had killed the child and that another young boy was at death’s door.

Following the expected verdict, Sloane learned the pediatrician committed suicide, the toy designer disappeared and his apartment was trashed. Then, Sloane found even more reasons to believe the judgment was wrong, and more children are at risk, he decided to collaborate with his longtime investigative partner Charles Jenkins, a former ICA operative, so they could take a second look at the deaths of the two boys, find out why other children are becoming ill, and look further into the toy designers claims.

Their investigation draws Sloane into the multimillion dollar, cutthroat toy manufacturing business and he and his family into becoming targets for an ex-CIA assassin, Anthony Stenopolis. At great personal risk, Sloane presses forward to find out the truth resulting in tragic personal consequences.

Author Robert Dugoni has more than twenty year’s experience as a civil litigator, leaving full-time practice in 1999 in order to write. He draws from his vast experience to produce a stellar courtroom drama. Now routinely on the New York Times bestseller list with such books as The Jury Master, Damage Control, and Wrongful Death, Dugoni has yet again written a novel that will draws the reader deep into the story.

Bodily Harm is the first Robert Dugoni novel I have read, but I can certainly see what all the excitement has been about. I'm not a personal fan of courtroom thrillers, but this novel is the exception. The intriguing storyline kept me up late at night turning the pages to find out what happens next. The emotional heat is turned up several notches in this powerful story of life and death, love and loss, espionage and greed.

The surprise ending alone is well worth looking into this fabulous novel.
