REVIEW OF THE LONGBRIDGE DECISION BY R. BROWN JR.
Read and Excerpt-
About the Author-
Novelist Robert M. “Buster” Brown, Jr. has been a practicing attorney for more than 30 years — almost as long as he has been sneaking into the office on weekends to write fiction. “Writing is more than the cure for my intellectual restlessness,” he says. “More also than the object of my mind’s incessant wanderings. It is my raison d’etre.”
Over the years he has written 17 novels while he practiced law and, for a lengthy interval, managed a large regional bank’s personal trust division. Today he is a founding partner of Brown & Supler, The Village Lawyers, PLC in Newport News, Virginia, which specializes in trust litigation and expert witness, wills and trusts, and business and elder law.
Mr. Brown ‘s novels focus primarily on the characters and subject matter with which he is most familiar: lawyers and their compelling legal dramas. Young, bright and attractive attorneys caught in the sinister web of unique, life-threatening dilemmas that test both their intellect and their moral character inhabit his tales. Think John Grisham meets Mary Higgins Clark with a touch of pure Brownian romanticism.
Mr. Brown lives in Newport News, Virginia with his wife, Anne Waddill Brown, and their son, Mason.
From the moment I opened the cover and started reading, I was hooked. The character development was great and the book was just as good as a book written by John Grisham and David Baldacci. I have always loved thrillers especially those that kept me guessing until the end. The author did an excellent job and when the book ended, I was looking for more. Bravo, Mr. Brown for a great Debut novel and I hope that he continues to write in the future. If you like suspense,thrillers and a little romance this is the book for you. So go out and pick up a copy of this great book. You will not be disappointed.
