Not his best but still enjoyable
on 23 June 2014
Most of the action takes place in 2008, but there are flashbacks to 1982 and the murder of a young woman in her family home. The first part of the book is what we expect from Scott Trurow. There is a lot of courtroom action, and although the plot moves slowly, I found it quite gripping.
I often find that crime writers run out of steam in the middle of their books, but the author here does the opposite. There are a series of plot twists that are so surprising that I wondered how he could wring any more excitement out of the story. He just about manages to, and although I didn't guess the ending, I found it a bit of an anticlimax.
