There is hardly anyone out there (or so I would have to believe) who has not aalready heard of this book. It has the most fascinating tagline which gives the plot of the story away while still not taking the thrill away from the book.
It is not my usual fare, legal thrillers are hardly my cup of tea (usually) but I was still impressed with the frantic pace where something meaningful was constantly happening. It is the fourth book of Eddie Flynn but it does not take long for anyone to get to know Mr. Flynn, a man who changed the side of the law that he worked in for his conscience’s sake. This conscience is a millstone around his neck because when he sees someone being unfairly taken advantage of, he has to drop his personal comfort to assist. The first couple of chapters where we are not getting to know the evil villain of the piece, we are given a crash course in the working of the mind of Eddie Flynn. It is entertaining and helps set up Eddie as a champion in our minds before we venture further into the murky case.
There is something for all kinds of thriller readers in this tale, Eddie is trying to keep a hold on the only family life he knows, and his friends while simultaneously trying to prove a man innocent of the crime he has been accused of. I think I might just go back and pick up another of the previous books if and when I get the chance. I recommend this to anyone on the lookout for something different to give this a shot (if you haven’t already read it)
I received an ARC thanks to NetGalley and the publishers but the review is completely based on my own reading experience.
