This is pertaining to the revised edition in paperback. I enjoyed reading this story at about page 50. I stuck with it even though my desire told me otherwise. Developing a plot, characters and sub-plotting takes effort and time. Since riding and roping were a couple of Twist's sports, and the story held true to them, I'd decided to read on. I was pleased that I did continue reading. Various twists (pun funny) in the story during the last 20 pages made the read worthwhile. Thank you Twist Phelan for your writing skills.

I'm the authro of the book KISSING FREUD KISSING FREUD, a thrilling psycho drama/comedy, and the book DUBROVNIK DUBROVNIK, an exciting spy action/adventure based in the beautiful city of Dubrovnik, Croatia. Both books are available here at amazon.com/books. Thanks for stopping by.

When his law firm downsizes, Joe McGuiness worries none of the other firms in town might accept him. An average student, this opportunity had been a godsend. His girl friend, on the other hand, is ready to celebrate his possible layoff, longing to move to San Diego where he can accept a position with her father. Although he narrowly escapes the threat of layoff, Joe soon has much bigger concerns.
A rodeo accident left Joe's horse dead and his shoulder severely injured. He returns to riding to participate in a team-roping event with Reilly, his best buddy since law school. Unfortunately, rodeo does not compete with the glittery world his girl friend would prefer, making Mia Ortiz that much more attractive when he meets her. Their immediate connection and common interests seem promising, until they return from their first date and she is arrested for murder.
Twist Phelan brings her deft skill of resolving complexities in the courtroom to her first novel, HEIR APPARENT. Her background as a lawyer and as an athlete lend HEIR APPARENT a convincing reality even as she weaves a tale filled with surprising twists and convolutions. The novel begins at a measured pace, creating a world that cleverly overlaps the world of a law firm with the world of rodeo cowboys. Rich characterizations provide an abundance of suspects that will keep readers guessing. Especially memorable are Joe's first girl friend with the perfect white tennis shoes, Trudy who wears politically incorrect t-shirts to work, and lawyer Jerry Dan who argues the Doppler effect as an excuse for running a red light. Very highly recommended.

The book is very well written, the story development is original, and the characters are interesting and well defined. I truly enjoyed HEIR APPARENT and will be looking forward to future Pinnacle Peak Mysteries.

Both rodeo fans and mystery lovers who don't know a lariet from a latigo will like this riveting debut, set in an Arizona desert town. With his youthful zeal and perseverance, Joe McGuinness makes a captivating hero and sleuth, one readers will be eager to see again.

In Arizona, Atticus Barclay of Barclay, Harrington & Merchant was driving on the Beeline Highway when his car explodes into flames leaving him roasted inside the "car-be-cue". A week later at the law firm's office in Pinnacle Peak, new associate attorney Joe McGuiness expects to be downsized as a result of the murder of one of the senior partners.

Joe drives out to a ranch owned by wealthy client Mrs. Barrett to give her some important legal papers. Due to car trouble he misses her by ten minutes, but meets her personal assistant Mia Ortiz and gets her to go out on a date with him just as he is breaking off with his girlfriend Amber Sulvane. When he takes Mia back to the ranch after their first date, they are stunned by the murder scene that they find; someone killed Mrs. Cordelia Barrett and her somewhat estranged son Busch Car racing driver Sonny. The police believe Mia killed them so she is arrested for the crimes as the motive involves the recently changed will that cuts off the obvious HEIR APPARENT. Joe believes otherwise that a murder suicide occurred and sets out to prove it even as his law firm superiors warn him to back off.

HEIR APPARENT is apparently somewhat of a rewriting of the first Joe McGuiness tale, but how much this reviewer does not know as this is my first read. The story line as with the other McGuiness thrillers contains two fine whodunits that eventually merge, but it is the eccentric secondary cast that makes the tale fun to read. The law firm, the rodeo, the former girl friend are all delightful unconventional protagonists who bring out the best and worst in the hero. Though the legal aspects are downplayed except for the office setting, fans of the series or anyone who appreciates a fun Arizonian investigative tale will want to join Joe as he tries to prove Mia is innocent.

So boring! If you are not into horses, good old boys and blabbering for pages and pages about Jerry, Joe, Hal, Sonny and more, all you have to do is stop reading at page 70 as I have done. Joe, I suppose , the main character, seems to me a young man with the maturity of a school boy. No more of this writer.
