He is the defense lawyer who takes the worst and most impossible cases - the ones that no one else will touch. And in the midst of that he knows the law deeply and clearly - better than the others. And with that knowledge he is able to seeming manipulate the outcomes.
Sebastian is not in it for the greater good or anything like that - he is in it for the $$$ and the joy of proving the big guys are wrong.
It's a fast and interesting read. The chapters loosely fit together as you walk through months of his life from case to case.
I would highly recommend this one! I read it aloud to my husband as we traveled. It was the perfect book for that.

This story is filled with Tarot cards, mermaids who can hold their breath for long minutes yet are susceptible to a curse that drowns them, and a house that is slipping into the sea.
I enjoyed Simon and his odd frozen in time life. I liked his librarian skills - searching and seeking information and sticking with a problem. I liked the fact that the library plays such a role in his story - even as the floodwaters threaten. And I cared about Amos and his choked off voice - he was also frozen in a completely different way.
Enjoyed this fast and interesting read!
