Library Journal Review
Assistant District Attorney Andy Barber, his wife, Laurie, and their 14-year-old son, Jacob, are the stereotypical happy suburban family until the boy is accused of brutally murdering a classmate. During the suspenseful trial, Andy and Laurie discover how little they know their boy-and each other. VERDICT Grover Gardner does an excellent job reading the audiobook. He captures the insolence and dignity of Andy's dysfunctional father, Laurie's hopelessness, and Andy's determination to exonerate Jacob. Recommended for legal thriller fans. ["Skillful plotting and finely drawn characters result in a haunting story reminiscent of Scott Turow's Presumed Innocent," read the review of the New York Times best-selling Delacorte hc, LJ 12/11.-Ed.]-Ilka Gordon, Siegal Coll. of Judaic Studies Lib., Cleveland (c) Copyright 2012.
