Gideon is a corporate attorney who abandons Silicon Valley following the execution of his pro bono client.
Mississippi Reckoning is a page-turner, particularly the First Act. The opening scene is high stakes and Zimmerman ups the ante for the entirety of it. Gideon and Kareem, his pro bono client, have standalone backstories; but they're not disconnected. I think each backstory reveals the capacity of Gideon or Kareem to become lethal, even if for dissimilar reasons.
Some of the Third Act is redundant because Gideon has rehashed the purpose of his trip for subsequent characters by then. The love scenes, further, are notable because they're a little long and sleepy.
It's not necessary for my enjoyment, but I love when fiction uses different writing techniques like letters, memos, and passages. Mississippi Reckoning might incorporate these techniques more than any non-graphic novel I've read.

A buffet of horror, nightmare, and terror -- some of it pretty good. Dark Cities is a different take on the genre.
"The Dogs" -- A nightmare.
"We'll Always Have Paris" -- Not my favorite... but the twist!
"Dear Diary" -- A nightmare.
"Grit" -- 'Hood horror story.
"Dark Hill Run" -- Scary!
"Happy Forever" -- The twist!
"Matter of Life and Death" -- Entertaining.
"The Crack" -- A different kind of nightmare and great narrative voice.

The Third Industrial Revolution is here, and the European Union and China have led it since the Great Recession. From governance by peer assembly to ESCO financing, The Green New Deal provides the standard by which to hold U.S. elected officials in 2020 and beyond. As with The Zero Marginal Cost Society, Jeremy Rifkin is perceptive; on the cutting edge; and far ahead of schedule.
I'll need my own copy.
