In fiction, genius lies in great characters. John Lescroart's characters are three dimensional. They laugh, they cry, they fail, they triumph; and they move the story along through complicated twists and turns of the plot. I read this book in one sitting.
Great courtroom drama mystery and a real page-turner! Couldn't get enough of it, so I ordered another J. Lescroart book. :)
I enjoy this author very much and this one does not disappoint. It kept me up late into the night and is tough to put down.
Book was very good, a little slow at first but then once I got into it it was much quicker readinbg.
This was a great book! The question under consideration is, did the beautiful Jennifer Witt kill her abusive husband and her little boy? We don't find the answer until the last day of the trial. But we do get a glimpse into the thought processes of abused wives, and we see the inner workings of the legal system. I never did quite figure out the importance of the title to the story, but it was a great story nevertheless.
