Ruiz is accused of killing a beautiful businesswoman and guru of a high-tech software empire catering to the military.

A little slow to start and somewhat difficult to get into, but very good once it got going. I hadn't read a Paul Madriani mystery in a while and forgot how much I like the character. Not much action and a lot of lawyering, but it worked. ( )

this is one of those books that while every well written it isn't going to stand out for much longer than it takes you to read it. the story line is well plotted, gives you a change to form your own opinion on the characters, but occasionally side tracks into parts unknown. there is some technical stuff in this one that may be hard to follow if not into software/computers. will say that it is very much a stand alone book that doesn't require you to be familiar with the back story or characters to make it a good read.

Double Tap is a light and easy read by Steve Martini. It contains action, suspense and personal connections. I found the audio enjoyable and the narration was well done. The information on data mining, training for fast action shooting in the military and security measures was interesting. The book was well named. I will definitely continue to read Martini’s books and give it a 3.5 stars. ( )

In Double Tap, attorney Paul Madriani represents a former Delta Force operative, Emiliano Ruiz, being accused of murder of a CEO of a high tech company. The CEO is a beautiful woman who he had an affair with, and her company develops software for the government. This software is being used by the government in an anti-terrorist effort. It does so by cyber snooping on anyone who goes on government websites. She was killed by two bullets delivered in double tap fashion, something that only a highly capable marksman like Ruiz would be capable of delivering.

I liked how prescient this novel was, going into areas like the government illegally snooping on private citizens, which has been in the news in recent days with the NSA scandal. Even though I’m not a big conspiracy theorist, the ones in this novel were right on the money. As far as legal thrillers go, this was well done. The client was behind the eight ball throughout the case, as the evidence stacked against him was pretty hard to overcome. Madriani showed good legal acumen as he navigated through the case. Ruiz comes off as sympathetic because it is pretty clear to the reader that he didn’t commit the murder and has a strong ethical code. This is one of the better legal thrillers I have read and would recommend it.

An incredible read! I can't believe it took me so long to read this title. It's a 2005 copyright that could still be "today's topic" in so many ways. If you missed it too, don't wait any longer. ( )

This is the generation of the great Leviathan . . . to which we owe . . . our peace and defence. For by this authority, given him by every particular man in the commonwealth, he hath the use of so much power and strength conferred on him, that by terror thereof, he is enable to form the wills of them all, to peace at home, and mutual aid against their enemies abroad.
