Wrongful death is a claim against a person who can be held liable for a death. The claim is brought in a civil action, usually by close relatives, as enumerated by statute. Any fatality caused by the wrongful acts of another may result in a wrongful death claim. Wrongful death claims are often based upon death resulting from negligence, for example following a motor vehicle accident caused by another driver, a dangerous roadway or defective vehicle, or medical malpractice.

Kerr's first novel was so good that I waited, quite impatiently, for this one.
Some who read the first novel may be taken aback by the change in approach and pace. This novel is far more complex than the first; it will indeed take some settling in. But once you are hooked, and it doesn't take long, this intricately told story won't let you go.
Many lawyers who write novels can tell a story, but can't write well. Kerr writes beautifully, and he tells a multilayered and ambitious story very well. While in his first novel the primary antagonist was (to my tastes) too little developed, in this novel that character is explored fully. And the four primary female roles are wonderful, each of them complex and interesting and compelling in a different way.
The novel builds up, carefully, to a series of court scenes which are the most dramatic and tense of any I've read for a long while. I've thought about this novel constantly since I finished it.
Bravo. I'm already waiting for the next one.

Recently few books have held my attention. The characters tend to seem shallow and cookie-cutter. I started "Wrongful Death" expecting it to follow this pattern, but I was pulled into it immediately. Others have described the plot; I just want to say that if you enjoy fully filled-out charcters and a plot out of the ordinary, try this one. I can't understand why Kerr is not more well-known.

Very intriguing and enjoyable.

Obviously, I am in minority about this book. With more than little arrogance, another Western writer spends some time in the Balkans and becomes an expert on all things, that most of us who lived there significant portion of our lives, can't completely understand.
The horrors of the civil war in Bosnia can't be erased or undone,many people's lives were destroyed. But I find it offensive that far too many mentions of plum brandy and roasted meat on a spit, seem to be the only thing that this author does right. And when he starts his frantic cheering of the another war crime that nobody got persecuted for, bombing of Yugoslavia, I almost gave up. Can you stop evil by commiting another evil? Throwing cluster bombs in city centers, destroyimg passenger trains in motion , nursing homes and hospitals, poisoning the land with uranium depleted missiles and many other attrocities, was just another war crime. And to end this, I was a vehement opponent of Slobodan Milosevic and the wars in Yugoslavia. When I realised that nothing else can't be done and when my life was in danger i immigrated to the USA in 1991.
Mr. Kerr burdened his book with million refferences to Bosnian conflict and it got drowned in the quagmire of details.

This story of mass murder in the Balkans, perhaps replicated in Boulder, Colorado, demands the reader's consideration of issues of legal/medical/polital/ethical concerns. The story almost swerves over the fog-line and into to the ditch on a couple of occasions, but Kerr steers it back on track. Characterization is built subtly, but Kerr's signposts (references to varied ethnicity, contemporary events, logos on tee shirts, technology) suggest the character development as the story progresses. A good tale, well told.
Of more significance to this lawyer of 30 years' trial experience, is Kerr's steadfast adherence to the technical aspects of his tale. Too many books by lawyers fall into a slipshod depiction of legal processes, creating a false notion of how the legal system actually operates, thinking, I suppose, that it somehow advances the drama of the story. Kerr is meticulous in using the law as it is, not as he might fashion it to advance the drama of his tale. For instance, it is apparent that he had to deal with issues of conflicts of interest. He didn't duck those issues; he planted waivers of conflict by the concerned parties into the narrative that justify his protagonist's actions. The courtroom scenes (examinations, objections, sidebars, arguments, rulings) ring true. He even references the appropriate rules. He shows a true trial lawyers perception when he explains to his client that when the court consistently rules against them on discretionary matters, it's a good sign. The judge thinks they're going to win, and doesn't want to provide the other side with any issues for appeal.
This is a lawyer's book that the non-lawyer can enjoy, and that the lawyer-reader can read, and say: "finally, a lawyer gets it right."

Normally I don't read many books in this genre, although I enjoy the legal chess moves, both in and out of court. The last two I recall finishing were John Grisham's 'The Firm' and Scott Turow's 'Pleading Guilty'. Usually I just wait for the movie to come out.
Kerr's specialty is, to be exact, the medical legal thriller. As a medical malpractice lawyer, as well as a former war crimes journalist in The Hague and a supervisor of the first democratic municiple elections in the Serb Republic of Bosnia(Former Yugoslavia), he brings considerable knowledge and experience to his writing.
His style of writing sometimes gets entangled in legal and medical lingo. This is forgivable because of the completity of the subject at hand. I wonder with the current conflict in the Middle East, that the Geneva Convention, first convened in 1949, is more relevant then ever.
