Tell me one thing. Was justice done here today? The question evokes in my mind the Yamura family sitting, broken in the courtroom. Not even close!
One of the reasons I enjoy reading is how a plot with all its characters can evoke justice. One of the reasons I am attracted to legal thrillers such as this one. But herein lies the frustration, this was not about justice. What then is this about? Clever manipulation.
Mick McFarland has been hired by his good friend David Hanson in the death of a beautiful reporter. A reporter who has the goods on a corrupt police force. With David being found by the police at the scene of the crime, it looks like a David will be doing time. As the case progresses, a video is given to Mick for a price that shows something more sinister. Something that will change Mick’s life and the life of his family, if he does not clear his good friend David.
Myers gives you descriptive narrative on all his characters that you are not confused on who is who. There are few in this thriller. I am ok at 5 but anymore, I am a mess. Along with the descriptive narrative on the characters, you are also given intertwining stories as well. Mick’s marriage, his relationship with his brother Tommy who also is employed by the legal team and a few more. You are given a great beginning but also a in your face ending.
A Special Thank You to Thomas Mercer and Netgalley for the ARC and the opportunity to post an honest review.
