Action Legal Drama
on 3 August 2007
This is the 3rd David Hosp novel and is a riveting read. The characters from his 1st novel "Dark Harbour" are back but that is where the similarity ends, as "Innocence" is fresh and different.
The first chapter sets the pace and from there the tension builds until the very end, with an excellent twist.
The story line centres around Vincente Salazar, who may or may not have been falsely sentenced to prison for an attack on a female police officer some 15 years ago. Scott Finn, a lawyer, with Tom Kozlowski a retired police officer, now detective, try to find out if he is innocent or not.
On the cover "Innocence" is described as a legal thriller, but I think it's more of an action legal thriller, written intelligently, with warm and believable characters but with a tension which will make you not want to put it down.
