    In Los Angeles County a serial killer has declared OPEN SEASON ON LAWYERS. Homicides are mounting as attorneys with track records for abusing justice to win cases for their clients are eradicated one at a time. LAPD Detective Joanna Davis leads the investigation, but in spite of several more murders and interviews of friends and families of the victims, clues remain lacking.

    Finally, Joanna begins to make progress, but her deadly foe follows her every move even as he aces another lawyer or two. Soon Joanna has a suspect, but will she find concrete evidence before he takes a detour and adds a police officer to his murderous list?

    OPEN SEASON ON LAWYERS is an engaging serial killer - police investigative tale that is fun to read, but falls a bit short of the mark of a great satire. The story line engages the audience though there seems too many murders cluttering the cat and mouse game between the killer and the detective. The irony of this novel is that Taffy Cannon clearly provides an entertaining tale that readers will fully enjoy as an evening of escapism, but misses the classic parody mantle that it could have become.
