[Book Review] Neon Dragon by John F. Dobbyn

Neon Dragon (Michael Knight)A 4+ Star Legal Thriller and FREE as of Monday 11/28/2011.

A decent plot, excellent background into the Chinese drug culture and gangs, plus an outstanding court case in the last 30 pages of the book brings this book to a very satisfying conclusion that had me turning pages to see how it ends.

Neon Dragon features Michael Knight, a lawyer working for a Boston law firm, who finds himself responsible for representing a young Harvard student who is accused of murdering a respected older Chinese man in the Boston Chinatown district. The defendant also happens to be the son of a judge who is in line to become the next chief justice of the Massachusetts Supreme Court.

I would rate Neon Dragon a 4.3 stars – if I could. It is not a 5 star book, but better than 4 stars and is a fast read for those who like a Grisham style legal thriller (moderate character development, a good story, fast paced, less than 350 pages, and a better ending than most Grisham books). If this is the style of book you love to read, than Neon Dragon by John F. Dobbyn should be on your reading list.
