When Johnny’s mother comes to Ben and begs him to defend her son, he has one secret reason for saying no.But while Ben turns down the case, his younger, beautiful partner, Christina McCall, does not. Traveling to Chicago and facing an explosion of controversy and deadly violence surrounding the trial, Christina steps into a case that is already nearly lost. Her client’s only defense is his claim that he left his victim bludgeoned but alive. To prove that someone else committed the actual murder, Christina needs a little bit of evidence—and a good motive to go with it.When unforeseen circumstances force Ben Kincaid to enter the trial, the defense attorney sees only one way to prove Johnny’s innocence. But Ben’s plan means luring a killer out of the woodwork—even though he may kill again. . . .A novel of gut-wrenching twists and surprises, this thriller brilliantly explores the passions between lovers—and the passions behind society’s most heinous crimes. Once again, the remarkable William Bernhardt makes us challenge every assumption, second-guess every judgment, and feel the terror of the truth.

*Hate Crime* was just ok. While there were many things going on, some of them really took your attention away from the main story. My biggest gripe about this installment was that there was too much focus and unnecessary drama between Ben Kincaid and a mysterious woman, Ellen Christensen.

Ellen comes into Ben's law firm in Tulsa, begging him to take her son's case, in Chicago. Her son, Johnny, has been accused of torturing and murdering a young gay man at his fraternity house. Ben, upon seeing Ellen, flat out refuses. Standing nearby is Christina McCall, who has recently been promoted at partner. Feeling for the mother's plea, Christina decides to take the case, without Ben's blessing.

While Johnny freely admits to torture, he claims he's innocent of the murder. Meanwhile, everyone else would like to get their hands on Johnny, especially a gay activist group. Christina soon realizes that she has a nightmare of a case once she discovers that Johnny's fraternity brothers are members of a Christian organization that is openly opposed to homosexuality and toss Johnny "to the dogs".

At the same time, Mike Morelli, Ben's former brother-in-law, is featured, working on a case with an FBI agent. They've just recently worked on a high-profile and mysterious kidnapping case.

Overall, it was a good book, worthy of reading just to kill time while riding the public transportation. I just felt that almost half the book was focused on why Ben wouldn't help Ellen out. In addition, the sexual overtures were overused between characters, such as with Ben and Christina and Mike and his partner and FBI agent.

"Hate Crime" is the latest book in William Bernhardt's series featuring the likeable Ben Kincaid, a defense attorney with a penchant for taking on hopeless cases. Ben's former legal assistant, Christina McCall, is now his partner. Christina would like to take her relationship with Ben to the next level, but Ben has never been able to acknowledge his deep feelings for Christina.
One day, a mysterious woman comes into the law firm of Kincaid and McCall, asking for Ben's help. Her name is Ellen Christensen, and her son, Johnny, has been arrested for the vicious murder of a gay man named Tony Barovick. When Ben sees Ellen, he is visibly upset, and he is adamant that he will not take Johnny's case. After Christina realizes that she will not be able to persuade Ben to change his mind, she decides to defend Johnny herself.
"Hate Crime" is one of the busiest books that I have read in some time. Bernhardt starts off his novel with a kidnapping, and he then segues to Johnny Christensen's murder trial. Mike Morelli, Ben's former brother-in-law, is also featured in this book. Along with his attractive female partner and an alluring FBI agent, Mike is investigating a series of gruesome murders. Ultimately, all of these plot lines somehow tie together.
Bernhardt's heart is in the right place when he tackles the theme that gay people have the right to live in peace. The author demonstrates, through scenes of graphic violence, how hatred and prejudice can lead to brutal actions. However, as a thriller, "Hate Crimes" is flawed. There are too many twists and turns that come out of left field, and some of the startling revelations at the end are incredibly far-fetched.
On the plus side, we long-suffering readers finally learn what has been bugging Ben all these years. Bernhardt reveals some secrets from Ben's past that explain why he behaves so awkwardly around Christina. These few tidbits, however, are not enough to redeem "Hate Crime," which is too unfocused and heavy-handed to succeed as a legal thriller.
Bernhardt does it again! Hate crime coupled with police tunnel vision for a suspect - KIDNAPPING - FBI - drugs and you have a legal thriller that will keep you on the edge of your seat! The end really threw me! Great author - Great book! You won't be disappointed !!
