When her daughter Rachael, working a summer job at the Ritz-Carlton, calls Cleveland forensic scientist Theresa MacLean to say a murder has just occurred at the hotel, Theresa knows she's stepping into a forensic mess. A local criminal defense attorney has been bound and beaten to death. The victim was attending a convention for criminal defense attorneys, which means the list of suspects could stretch a mile long. Two more bodies are found in quick succession, each killed in a similar manner, and the authorities know they have a serial killer on their hands. As Theresa searches for the threads that tie the cases together, she begins to fear that both she and her daughter are closer to danger than either of them realize.

"Lisa Black writes with authority about the coroner's office in Cleveland. She should--she worked in that office for years. In DEFENSIVE WOUNDS, someone is killing defense lawyers at the most expensive hotel in Cleveland, and forensics scientist Theresa MacLean is trying to catch the killer. She's interested in the case because her daughter works at the hotel, and the teenager is in love with a prime suspect. Kirsten Potter performs the work and, to her credit, never flinches when pronouncing foot-long names of chemicals or some of the odd Cleveland monikers, like "Cuyahoga." Potter's reading is smooth and hypnotic, making it hard to stop listening. M.S. (c) AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine"
