    1. Overall I enjoyed this although I was getting a bit fed up with the high body count at one point! My favourite part of the book involved the court case and the unexpected turn of events. My one complaint is to do with the poor editing. I bought the book for my Kindle and got frustrated at the number of errors where words were missing or run together.

    2. Pretty standard "legal thriller" fare, with an interesting twist for someone like me who works in this exact environment (but on a smaller scale.) The story was fast-paced, and an easy read and hopefully something that will never actually happen, although we all know the desperate extremes to which some people will go for money.It won't keep you up all night, but you probably will want to know how it all turns out.

    3. Well, the idea was good and I would have enjoyed this and persevered were it not for the myriad of mistakes which ruined it for me so I packed it in 37% in.Silvio suddenly changed to Slivio, words were missed out as were punctuation marks, spaces were lost, confident became confidant. The final straw was a flight number given as 1006 which was amended to 1005 in a few paragraphs !!Sorry, but this total lack of editing really isn't good enough and if the author doesn't care then neither shall I.

    4. This was a exciting read. Lots of twists and turns and then a totally unexpected reveal. I also read Blood Money on my Kindle. I was frustrated with the way the book and the Kindle interacted; too many skipped pages, trouble getting back to where I was, and then having trouble getting back to the menu. I began to think Nick's adversaries knew I was trying to get away! Thanks Laura for a wild ride.

    6. This was an odd blend of very good and very not so good. At times the writing was amateurish and the need to suspend disbelief stretched to the max, but still the story was compelling enough to keep me reading, eye-rolling all the while.

    7. Spoiler**too many murders in this book to be plausible, writing was a little uneven, but it was still enjoyable

    8. Enjoyed the book and recommend it, some good twists. I don't understand the reason that Kindle books are so poorly edited.

    9. This book was an active mystery, and came close to being rated a four star. I would read another book by this author, since characters were interesting, and plot stayed on course.

    10. Blood Money: James GrippandoThere are some cases that lawyers should consider before agreeing to take them. Some clients are more controversial than others. There are those that are guilty and some that are just plain liars. Sydney Bennett was arrested and tried for killing her two-year-old daughter named Emma. The trial lasted for a quite a while and attorney Jack Swyteck had no choice but to defend her. Not really concerned about her guilt or innocence he and his co-council managed to create e [...]

    11. Three-line review: This book was a quick read, but that was just about it's only redeeming quality. The characters were shallow, the story was very thin and predictable, plot lines tied up way too easily and it felt amateurish from beginning to end. I'm all for a good guilty pleasure read, but nothing about reading this thriller felt like a good use of my time.

    12. As the plot went on it became a bit far fetched.

    13. This book was free from Bookbub. The mechanics of good writing were not what they should have been from this author. The plot was good, but it was not developed. There were too many throwaway characters and too much tangential material. The book held my interest by its twists and turns, but it never clicked. A Philadelphia lawyer was handling a contrived medical malpractice case. He did not know that the case was contrived or that his law partners did whatever was necessary to get big money verd [...]

    14. Difficult read for me to get into the first three chapters but after that I was hooked. This book became like a drug and I had to know what was going to happen next. The main character, Nick Cerratto, was not an easily likable character but as the reading went on I came to respect him. Characters were introduced, they made their impact and then were take away and it worked. That device alone kept me reading waiting for the next piece of action. The twists of the story were definitely surprising [...]

    15. Laura Rizio tells a tale of a law firm so rooted in corruption that it's almost implausible. Or is it? If the love of money is the root of all evil, then Blood Money showcases the devil himself in the Maglio, Silvio, & Levin firm that is the central focus of the book. As you read through this fast-paced and suspenseful drama, you'll find that lies, intimidation, and even murder are the methods of choice for making things happen for these corrupt lawyers. And that's just the first few pages! [...]

    16. I have had this book on my Kindle for quite some time. And I just started it a few days ago. I was really pleased with it. I liked the twists and turns and the way that author moved the plot along. The mix of long and short chapters worked for me. I found the hero to be likable in spite of his flaws. And the thought of a street kid who becomes a rich Philadelphia lawyer is a great vehicle for a plot. Many have commented about the editing errors. I noticed them as well. But, I tend to look at tho [...]

    17. Blood Money was grittier than my usual preference--I would not have downloaded it, even free, had I realized that. In spite of a lot of killing, crude language, and illicit sex, the storyline kept me interested enough to read to the end to find out what happened. As an editor, I was pulled from the story by errors--every book has some, but this one had more than its share. The ending left me shaking my head and wondering why I had insisted on reading to the end.

    18. I rated 3 stars but wanted 2 1/2 which was not possible. The story was good however characters and narrative was not developed. Book was not edited as spelling errors are too many. The story is about murder, fraud and justice but court room drama was very poor. I have never read books of this author but gave it a try and was disappointed. Hope next book will better. By the way I downloaded this book free on .

    19. Nick Ceratto is an up and coming lawyer in a prominent Philadelphia firm. One of the partners end up dead in a supposed murder-suicide. As he digs deeper, more and more people end up dead. He discovers the partners were crooked and when they realize he knows, his life is in danger as well. The writing is OK. I enjoyed it especially because it was set in Philly and a lot of places mentioned are places I knew.

    21. I thought this book was just ok and that it felt thrown together. Characters were not well developed and it was hard to buy into the plot once the series of murders occurred as part of the cover up. I know it's a book but it seemed excessive and unrealistic. When I read it's like a movie reel in my head and this movie was not good.

    22. Impressive. Great characterization. I'd love to meet Shoes for coffee someday - as long as Nick was there. It had everything I despise about law - the politics of it rather than the purity of practice - but it shows one can rise above.

    23. On the edgeOn the edgeVery good read one of those books where you want to know what happens. What I really liked was the ending very good it did not end like most books do.

    24. Yawn. Had potential to be a good thriller, but lacked the important component of mystery and a good twist. The whole story was far too predictable without those elements, and the writing was rather amateur at times. The ending was especially terrible.

    25. The book captivated me from the start. It is not one of those books that have all the good guys win, but had many main characters die. I like that it showed how far someone would go just to have money.

    26. Edgy thriller. Kept me on edge of my seAt for most part. There are parts where the author gets a little repetitive and the pace dies with minutae of details I didn't care about. Overall pretty good.

    27. A decent Legal/Crime thriller, bits of procedural police work, some legal procedures, court scenes and lots of murders and suspense. But kills the suspense in just 1 page. Good Read if you have time to kill.
