    1. This is the first book in Lutterman's Pen Wilkinson series.I really enjoyed this legal suspense novel. Lots of twists and turns that I didn't see coming which I always enjoy. Plus the characters and situations they faced were easy to relate to for me.Pen Wilkinson is an attorney who was in a car accident that resulted in her becoming a paraplegic. I am an attorney who was in a car accident which resulted in me losing my right leg above the knee. Not nearly as bad as Pen's situation but still I c [...]


    2. Let me start off by stating that this book was a Book Club selection. Accused of fraud and fired from her job, paraplegic young attorney Pen Wilkinson decides to solve the mystery of this corporate "thriller" on her own. She even escapes her would-be hired assassin in a knock-down drag-out fight. Sure she's 6 ft tall standing up and toned. BUT SHE CAN'T STAND UP SHE'S A PARAPLEGIC! This was too hard for me to swallow. Evidently this is 3rd in a series of books by Lutterman about Pen Wilkinson an [...]


    3. I've just finished reading “Downfall” by Brian Lutterman, and let me just state that it was a fantastic read… Penny Wilkinson, aka “Pen,” is a litigation attorney who has recently started working for North Central Bank. She’s a newer resident to the city of Minneapolis; and due to the new job, and new town, it’s quite apparent that Pen is attempting to rebuild her life. One can only presume that this effort is to escape being haunted by the ghosts of her past…Two-and-a-half years [...]


    4. Read my full review at mysterysequels/downfall-brA tragic accident in the past left Pen Wilkinson in wheelchair for life, killing her niece at the same time. Her life is ruined, her career as an attorney is down the drains (afterall who would want a counselor that takes away sympathy from the client due to her physical situation), so she’s happy when she finds a job at a bank in Minnesota – not quite what she had in mind, though, but at this time any job that pays the bills will do.Little do [...]


    5. Terrific corporate thriller with a scrappy, intelligent, tenacious, persistent and believable protagonist - Pen Wilkinson gets my vote over a putz like Jack Reacher any day. Only drawback for me on Pen's character is that I have a friend who uses a wheelchair and matches all the above personality traits. No fault to the author, but I kept thinking of my friend in the story as things developed. Not really a problem, but a major distraction from the story.And the story is a real page-turner comple [...]


    6. I was not expecting to like this book. I was pleasantly surprised. The author, Brian Lutterman was unknown to me before receiving this book. The story quickly grabbed my interest and sustained it until the end. I read lots of mysteries and thrillers and this one holds its own with those of more well known writers. I will be looking for Brian Lutterman's other books.


    7. Billed as a "corporate thriller," this compelling tale of misdeeds in the banking and corporate world of Minneapolis grabs you from the start. I want to read more about Pen Wilkinson, the heroic young paraplegic attorney, who ferrets out the truth and brings the saboteurs to justice.


    8. A nice mystery. Well written and moves right along. There are some hard to believe aspects (slender wheel-chair heroine beats implacable hit man), but I liked the development and the characters are well drawn.




    9. Downfall is an excellent start to the Pen series. An interesting protagonist with a wrinkle. Well written. Recommended!


    10. Can't wait to read more of his books. I live near the Detroit area so it was fun to read of events taking place in nearby cities!Very well written!


    11. Slow and uninteresting for the first couple of hundred pages before finally picking up. I was going along great right up until the end and then it just finished poorly as far as I'm concerned.
