    Roy Johnson was not a good man by any means In the past he was being investigated for drug trafficking but was never caught In the current day he had been CEO of Dynatron in which he cashed out of the company making off with one hundred million just before it shut down costing twenty thousand employees all of their jobs pensions and insurance When Roy's wife reports him missing after going for a walk one night near the swamp pieces of his clothing and wallet are found so the press then dubs him the Alligator Man since it seems he fell victim to the alligators in the swamp until a witness comes forward saying they saw a hit and run that night Kevin Wylie is a lawyer from Miami who shortly after losing his job receives a phone call from his estranged father's girlfriend to let him know that his father is battling cancer and may not have very long to live Kevin decides to go meet the man who gave him up twenty eight years before to get some answers but while there an old family friend is accused of the murder of Roy Johnson so Kevin takes on his case I was completely caught up in this story from the moment it starts through the investigation and trial A well written intense fast paced legal thriller The story changes the points of view from several characters to start which seemed a bit confusing at first but once you get going it was very hard to put this one down Interesting characters plot and conclusion Definitely would recommend I won this book from Goodreads First Reads For reviews please visit

    One of the best crime thrillers I've read this year is The Alligator Man by James Sheehan which I won from Goodreads Giveaways In this novel the writer doesn't just focus on a high profile murder and a heart stopping courtroom trial but adds a dash of drug smuggling and white collar crime When the story opens the disappearance of a corrupt gazillionaire Roy Johnson has been reported by his young wife Kevin Wylie a criminal lawyer in town to renew his relationship with his terminally ill father is called on to take on a case that seems to be fuelled by circumstantial evidence What he finds is a case riddled with mystery and inconsistenciesJames Sheehan's writing style and his characterization are worthy of praise In well written prose he takes the reader on a roller coaster ride with a captivating plot and complex characters haunted by their past Clever shrewd Kevin Wylie haunted by the desertion of his father as a child struggles with his conviction and compassion while embroiled in a struggle to save the life of a friend Tom Wylie a determined and well loved man in the community seeks forgiveness and redemption for past sins Even though Jeanette Truluc's an intelligent and perceptive lawyer she still faces racial prejudice while brave honest sharp eyed Carlisle Buchanan is labelled because of his father's past and his need to work out of doors Billy Fuller a caring and loving father must find inner strength and resolve to overcome public censure Add to these remarkably strong characters the astute eavesdropper Rosie and the considerate and kind hearted Kate Antagonists like the manipulative and cunning Bernie Stangthe greedydishonest Roy Johnson and the unconscionable murderers Randy Winters and Bobby Joe Sellers infuse the plot with excitement and dramaIn this story of greed anger manipulation and deceit are redeeming ualities of love friendship redemption and hope which makes it stand out from other crime thrillers I thoroughly enjoyed The Alligator Man and intend to read other novels by James Sheehan

    I received this book for free in exchange for an honest reviewI have never read any of Sheehan's books before but after The Alligator Man I am going to see if my library has any of his books If you like John Grisham you will like Sheehan The mystery is there the characters are really likeable and he really makes you hate the bad guys There was one character called Bernie I'm not going to reveal any than his name that is so slimey that you feel like washing your hands anytime he comes on the scene Maybe about three uarters of the way through I guessed what might be the end result I just didn't know how it was going to get there And let me tell you getting there was a blast There are several little backstories that are developed throughout this book that are just thatbackstories Sometimes authors try to include little tid bits of the character history along the way that take over the storyline and leave you confused Sheehan doesn't do that He gives you the history of many of the characters without taking away from the story but by adding to it This was a really good book and I will gladly promote this author to my friends who are law thriller fans

    I decided I loved James Sheehan’s work after reading last year’s release The Lawyer’s Lawyer I jumped at the chance to read this new book and was not at all disappointedThe Alligator Man starts off with a chapter from the perspective of a murder victim From the very first chapter I was hooked There were two parallel stories going on at the same time and at one point I didn’t know how they related About halfway through the book the connection became clear and suddenly every character was a thousand times important and every word interesting At one point the case seemed hopeless at others it seemed there could be no other alternate ending But of course there were several wild twists at the end that totally through me Yeah several Not just one surprise Like surprise after surprise And maybe a little bit of crying at the very endAll in all I loved The Alligator Man and am once again impressed with Sheehan’s ability to make a dry boring courtroom seem exciting and to weave a powerful story about humans and love and greed and destinyThe narration was very good though not as good as The Lawyer’s Lawyer In the same way that the narrator didn’t add anything to the book he didn’t take anything away either


  7. Robert Robert says:

    A very well written Florida court room drama The story centers around a criminal defense lawyer that gets drawn into a case that ends up having ties to a firm that he just got fired from This is a good novel that is not overly complex yet has enough twists to keep the reader entertained

  9. Roger Smitter Roger Smitter says:

    A good read for courtroom novels with a surprise at the end The last third of the novel when we find ourselves in the courtroom is especially good Sheehan makes a few statements about the evils of corporations and the bad guys who get lots of money while working stiffs get the shaft The courtroom drama seldom earns five stars but this one comes close


  10. Erin Erin says:

    I think I really just needed to read a legal thriller where the lawyers are basically good people who do the right thing in the name of justice Doubtlessly there are flaws with this story and maybe Kevin is a bit of a rehash of Jack Tobin but all in all another satisfying read from James Sheehan I can't find any mention of further books but I will hold out hope for a future read
