Gripping but a slow burner,
This review is from: Defending Jacob (Kindle Edition)
This book is extremely well written and is very gripping.
But the narrative is very analytical and detailed and because of this the pace can appear rather slow. The storyline is about a fathers defence of his son who is suspected of murdering a fellow school pupil and the history of a "Murder Gene" that runs in the fathers bloodline.
In contrast to the main body of the book the ending is rather sketchy and would have benefitted from more detailed description.
Despite my criticisms of pace this book is a good read and is difficult to put down.
