The Extraditionalist (A Benn Bluestone Thriller) by Todd Merer

Reviewed by Jud Hanson

The ExtraditionalistMeet Benn Bluestone, lawyer to the criminal and infamous. His particular field of expertise is extradition, as in when the Government wants to extradite someone back to the U.S. Bluestone has become quite wealthy catering to wealthy criminals, most of whom come from south of the border. When he is approached by 3 potential clients simultaneously, all promising large fees, Bluestone believes that he may finally be able to retire. It is only when the cases began to intertwine that he realizes he may have gotten in over his head. He knows a lot of secrets, some of which his clients will do anything to protect.

The Extraditionist by Todd Merer introduces the reader to Extraditionist lawyer Benn Bluestone. Bluestone is a one-of-a-kind lawyer who serves the wealthy criminal community because they pay extremely well. Merer has created a well-rounded character to which the reader can relate. Bluestone doesn’t fit into the traditional mold of a literary lawyer, which is what I find so interesting. I look forward to the next Bluestone novel, which is already in progress. I can recommend this book to all legal thriller fans and give it 5/5 stars.
