Escape Velocity


Praise for Escape Velocity


Escape Velocity-Lynn Stegner

“Instantly addictive and disconcertingly credible, Escape Velocity will send the unwary reader pell-mell through the mazy proceedings and gamesmanship of corporate Silicon Valley. The story is shot through with shrewd humor and keen observation. I never knew how much I wanted to know about the legal and economic ins-and-outs of the tech industry until Susan Wolfe, uniquely positioned to illuminate both, decided to write this exhilarating novel.”

Author of For All the Obvious Reasons

Escape Velocity-Alice La Plante

Escape Velocity is that rare thing: a page-turner about business. Susan Wolfe has achieved something extraordinary with this book: a thriller in which financial and legal suspense keeps you as breathless with anticipation as the rich character development. An absolutely compelling stay-up-all-night read.”

Alice La Plante
Award-winning author of Turn of Mind

Escape Velocity-Barbara Babcock

“Was there ever a more appealing character than this clever, hard-working Georgia Griffin of Piney, Arkansas, who has inherited her father’s genius for the con? . . . Not only highly entertaining, but also insightful and informative about Silicon Valley’s high tech industry, whose principals are not always what they claim.”

Mystery News

LBH-The New York Times Book Review 2

“Susan Wolfe if at her best depicting – and spoofing – the glitzy law firm scene. A lawyer herself, she serves her damages with skill and obvious glee.

The New York Times Book Review

LBH-St. Louis Post-Dispatch

“A swift, complex plot, an unlikely romance and an intriguing glimpse at power politics among yuppie attorneys.”

St. Louis Post-Dispatch

LBH-California Lawyer

“Fast-paced . . . humorous. This twists of plot and details of practice are drawn with accuracy and wit. The Last Billable Hour is also a moral tale, a thoughtful and colorful commentary on the legal profession.”

California Lawyer

LBH-Paul Brest

“This diverting tale of legal skullduggery throws a scintillating if scandalous light on the highly charged, high-tech practice of law in Silicon Valley. Readers will look forward to the further adventures of attorney Howard Rickover and Inspector Sarah Nelson.”

LBH-Robert Barnard

“The writing is sharp, and the dialogue leaps from the page.”

Robert Barnard
Author of Death in a Cold Climate and Death on the High C’s

LBH-Lia Matera

“An absolutely authentic view of law firm politics, written by someone who’s obviously been there. If Samuel Butler had been a corporate lawyer, this is the kind satire he’d have written. It will make readers laugh – and it will make lawyers blush.”

Lia Matera
Author of Where Lawyers Fear To Tread
