Toppleton's Client

Gelesen von Cate Barratt

(4,557 Sterne; 53 Bewertungen)

A pre-eminent legal firm gets far more than it bargained for when it hires the son of its late senior partner, Hopkins Toppleton, Sr., simply to retain the illustrious family name on the company masthead. Knowing Jr. is a loose cannon, their strategy is to pack him off to the UK to head up a European branch of the firm - a branch they have no intention of sending work. The unwitting Hopkins Toppleton, Jr. is, however, determined to make his mark. (Summary by Cathy Barratt) (5 hr 3 min)

What an interesting story! I kept wanting to know what happens next. I didn't know how it would end. The ending was good. I just wish everyone could've been satisfied with it. Listen & you'll see what I mean.

Great Fun

(5 Sterne)

Well read and a lot of fun. The ending really didn't come as a surprise, but that was fine. The story was so entertaining that I simply didn't care. After Alice in Bluderland, I enjoyed this one most of his works that I've read so far.

Before finding this book , I’m sorry to say I’d never heard of this author, but had searched under this narrators list for something different from my usual reads. I will certainly be reading more from him, what fun it was this book

Not what I expected, but I really enjoyed the supernatural aspects of the story. The reader was, as usual, superb.

Entertaining and Very Well Read

As another reviewer said, not a very surprising ending, but still an entertaining story, overall.
