    One thought on “The Empty Net”

    1. Wealthy Boston attorney, Thaddeus T. Robinson, specialized in malpractice lawsuits. Ethical standards had little to do with his success. “His recent stretch of good fortune had begun a few years ago when, without warning, and really with little cause, he announced to his wive Effie that he had decided to divorce.” They had been married for more than thirty years but in the settlement, he managed to cheat her royally by using a forged document. He won his cases by appealing to the jurors’ [...]

    2. 3.0 of 5 stars – Enjoyable "Med" Mystery But Left Me Wondering.[I'm excited to have won this as a First Read – so thanks, Lee!]This was a nice, easy-to-read "medical" mystery mainly set in Boston. I had not read the first two books in this series, but this one works well as a stand-alone, not having to build on previous cases but briefly mentioning them to give some background.I liked Peter Kowey's writing style, with fairly decent dialogue and interviewing/questioning. It was interesting t [...]

    4. It was OK is about as good as I can say. Let's say I was not inspired to read any of the other books in the series. It started out very good with an interesting attack on a malpractice attorney that appears could only have been done by a doctor. And the main character of the series, Dr. Philip Sarkis, just happens to be right near where it happened. So his girlfriend and her father come running to Boston to investigate the attack. And nothing much happens. They talk to people who don't have much [...]

    5. I liked this book. This was the third book in the series & while I think it can stand alone there was a lot of reference to the earlier books as well as to the relationship between the main characters Philip Sarkis & Dorothy Deaver. I think having the background knowledge of the earlier books would have helped some.At first, there was a lot of background information given & I was a little lost but then I picked up on who the main characters were & I found that I couldn't put the [...]

    6. Dr. Knowey does use the right side of his brain for this novel. I have not read the first two, but if they are as good as this third one, I would be happy to read them. It is a good mystery, with explanations given after the events to explain them. The plot is imaginable and creative. Enjoyed it.J. Robert Ewbank author "John Wesley, Natural Man, and the Isms" "Wesley's Wars" and "To Whom It May Concern"

    7. The Empty Net was a really good book, engrossing until the end. And then came the end. The ending itself left too many unanswered questions for a good mystery novel. I truly enjoyed the book for the most part, but I like my mysteries to be solved or at least left dangling in an imaginative way.I received this book free from First Reads.
