Sarah heard it and looked up, but she didn’t see anything. on the floor against the side of the plane-Sarah, Herman, Bugsy, and Adin. A few seconds later a man appeared, looking down at them from over the edge of the container. Bugsy barked at him and lunged to the end of his leash as Sarah struggled to hold him. Easy, said Adin. He petted the dog and looked up. It’s only Teo. I was hoping it would be yo. .He glanced up at the man.

The Jury: Paul Madriani, Book 6. Steve Martini. Please, Mr. Martini, do not have this clown Liquida return from the dead in your next book. This truly evil but unbelievable character has lived too long a life already and hopefully he will remain in the belly of the crocodile. In total, Traders of Secrets is a complete literary disaster and terribly disappointing. And from reading other critiques I don't believe I am alone in my assessment of this book.

Defense attorney Paul Madriani is embroiled in a case as perilous as any he has ever faced one that involves an angry killer who will stop at nothing short of vengeance and two missing NASA scientists who are holding secrets that a hostile government desperately wants to purchase in blood if they must.

Madriani s daughter, Sarah, has evaded the man known as Liquida, and is being kept under armed guard for her own safety. But one morning Sarah slips her ring of protection. What she doesn t know is that her assailant is at this very moment waiting patiently outside in the dark. At the same time, in California two men in a parked car argue over millions in cash that could be slipping through their fingers and a scheme involving government technology-for-sale that could rock the world.

Paul Madriani, his companion, Joselyn Cole, and his long-time law partner, Harry Hinds, track Liquida, not knowing that their quest will carry them deep into the vortex of international terror. It is a journey that will lead them toward a bizarre and cruel twist of nature and the ultimate weapon of mass destruction. Madriani and his party race against time to find Liquida and the scientist who is the trader of secrets before he can unleash the weapon that can set the world ablaze."

The end of a trilogy of course Liquida dies - thank god. Unfortunately I forgot I was going to skip the obvious and boring conclusion and see if Martini reigns Madriani back in to being an attorney in his next book. Maybe I'll call Amazon and see if I can have my money back as I am very annoyed. You know Stuart Woods did this too. He turned a great main character into an international spy fighting terrorism and I was just as disappointed. Not only is it not what I wanted, it was boring and poorly written. I happen to be a physicst and his research on the LaGrange Points did not add to this book. What is the matter with writers today? We read and love their supense novels on court room dramas so the alter the main character and turn him into an unbelievable cartoon spy? So sad. After the Woods fiasco I started taking advantage of the Kindle samples. Then I got lazy and now I paid for my laziness. If you like court room dramas or suspense stay away from this as there was not one mysterious page. I am just mad at myself for buying it. I guess I hoped Liquida would die in 5 pages and things would return to normal. The only good thing is of course Liquida is toast now - thank god. Zero stars was not an option but it is my rating.

Let me start by saying I am a HUGE Steve Martini fan, especilly when Paul Madriani is the protaganist. That being said, I think its time to get Paul back in the courtroom where he soars! This book was a big disappointment to me on many levels. Without trying to give away the plot, let me try to list a few of the areas where I think Martini fell far short of his goal:

!. If Martini is attempting to make Joselyn an independent tough class act, he has failed miserably. She comes across as a sacracastic bossy nasty mean witch with no charm.
2. Most of this story is so over the top as to lose credibility for the entire storyline.
3. Paul's daughter Sarah comes across as a naive nitwit, not an intelligent college age woman. Even a reasonably sharp person (knowingly "under protection" from someone out to kill her father and her) would not do the things she routinely does: runs alone in the predawn hours, opens doors without checking who's knocking, discloses secrets because she's infatuated, etc. You get the picture. When your life is in danger, you don't become stupid, you become more cautious.
4. Mowing down armed soldiers with a rental car is so around the bend that I couldn't even find the humor in it. Now if they had rented a Hummer or something of that nature, then this scene would have been more plausible.
5. The scene in the French motel, which was added I guess, for comic relief was not even remotely funny.
6. Sarah's tracking the Mexicutioner in the ending scene is irrational and firing her pistol at sounds and bushes with no one in sight is hard to imagine, regardless of her fear.

I could go on, but I think I've overstated my point. They say "write what you know" and I think it's time for Martini to get back to lawyerly stuff. I'm sure as an author you might want to try other stuff, but when it's not working after 2 or 3 attempts, in fact when it gets worse with each attempt, it may be best to go back to what made Martini such a great writer. He does some of the best courtroom drama novels of any author I've read.

There were some saving graces in this novel. For example: Adin was probably my favorite character and the Israeli elite forces final scene was probably the best part of the book. The plane crash and the dying soldiers made the scene credible and believeable. The main plot line was a great idea that to me sounded plausible in the future, so kudos for the idea. However, overall, the book did not flow, many of the characters were not likeable, and the overall novel appeared shallow and not that well thought out. Regardless of what the acclaim for the book says, it's not riveting, its not full of humor, and its entertainment value is slight. Borrow this book, don't buy it.

I know I'll get stoned for this review but I really am a fan of Martini's previous novels before he took his hero out of the court room and into the world of terrorism. Sorry....

I will start by saying that I have been a Steve Martini fan since I picked up The Simeon Chamber many years ago, and I have read and enjoyed all of his novels. I have always enjoyed his plots, writing style, and particularly the legal maneuverings and the very realistic court room scenes. Martini's works usually rank right up there with John Lescroart, Scott Turrow, and several other authors who write in the legal genre.

A week or so ago I received Trader of Secrets from Amazon and settled in for another enjoyable roller-coaster ride. To say I was disappointed in this latest book would be a gross understatement. I found the whole plot to be so contrived, predictable, unrealistic and unbelievable that it was actually silly at times, beginning with the premise that the White House and the Pentagon were withholding information from the FBI but yet were charging that agency with conducting an investigation where all available information would be needed in order to properly do its job. Having spent almost thirty years in federal law enforcement I cannot conceive of such a situation occurring. Apparently the White House and the Pentagon did not trust the FBI in what was described as a situation where they must thwart a terrorist plot or the end of western civilization was at hand. So, those poor clowns in the FBI were hand-cuffed from the start.

OK, so the plot was contrived, but next I found the dialogue did not ring true and was so silly in many instances, particularly the scenes with Paul, Harry and Jocelyn, that at times I was wondering if I was reading The Hardy Boys or Nancy Drew. During some of the contrived situations these three characters were having discussions as what they should do next, as if in a boardroom, while bullets are flying, an airplane is being blown up, and bad guys are trying to kill them. One of the most ludicrous and contrived scenes was when Adin Hurst, the Israeli agent, is introduced to Sarah Madriani by an FBI agent. This scene is unbelievably stupid, plot-wise and dialogue-wise.

I truly do not understand why this book is so poorly written in every respect, and the ending peters out leaving you hanging. Please, Mr. Martini, do not have this clown Liquida return from the dead in your next book. This truly evil but unbelievable character has lived too long a life already and hopefully he will remain in the belly of the crocodile. In total, Traders of Secrets is a complete literary disaster and terribly disappointing. And from reading other critiques I don't believe I am alone in my assessment of this book.

I have been a fan of Steve Martini and the Paul Madriani books for a long time, but he totally lost me with this one. The premise of a lawyer getting involved in global terrorism, cartel killers, etc is just too far-fetched to be credible. Plus, the plot is thin, major plotlines and characters appear and disappear with no warning and confusion reigns. A really sorry excuse from an author who must have a lot more in him than he displays in this piece of literary wreckage. Please bring the real Paul Madriani back, or barring that, just write a book that gives him a decent burial.
