“ARC given for an honest review”
Ten years working as a prosecutor have left Meredith Delay jaded and unsure of what she wants out of life. She’s good at her job, but it haunts her. Her boyfriend wants her to commit, but she keeps him at arm’s length. Then Meredith is assigned to a high-profile prosecution involving the violent murder of a fallen hockey star. At first, it appears to be just another case to work. But when her old friend Julian is accused of the murder, it takes on a whole new dimension.
Meredith, Julian, Jonathan, and Lily were a tight-knit group in law school. But now, Jonathan’s defending Julian, and Lily’s loyalties aren’t clear. And when Julian invokes a rare—and risky—defence, Meredith is forced to confront their past.
It was Laura who called to tell me the news.
I was pretty glad that I finished reading this book. When I first started reading this book it was a really slow start. But I did eventually get into the book. I never really warmed up to any of the four main characters but they certainly lead interesting lives. The book was written in two different narratives. One, the reader follows the prosecutor Meredith as she works on the case and the other consisted of flashbacks as the reader follows Meredith and her friends while they were in law school. There were plenty of twists and turns that kept me reading and situations got clearer the further you went. I did enjoy reading it at the end and would recommend this if you enjoy a good psychological thriller.
