- A Court Room Drama That Will Keep You Flipping the Pages -
Edward Hall is a lawyer recently released from prison after 3 years. He has no intention of returning to his attorney days, but he gets a call from his sister, Amy, who is a pediatric doctor. She has been to visit her husband, of which she is currently separated, found him shot and bleeding, rushed to perform CPR then called 911. She called Edward from jail, pleading with him to help her since she seems to be the number one suspect. Edward is torn regarding representing her for various reasons, some of which are only shared as the book progresses.
What Concerned Me: Though I don’t know a lot regarding legal issues, a couple places made me wonder a bit. (However, the author is a lawyer, so there's a very good chance I should think again --teehee).
What I Liked Most: I am a fan of mysteries and top of my list are legal mysteries. I was very excited to be allowed to read this advance review copy from NetGalley and Severn House. This book started with a bang and kept me turning pages, just the way I like mysteries. The writing is good, the characters are well developed, and the story has creative twists. This is the first book I’ve read by author Jay Brandon, but I will definitely be reading more.
