It’s not often that a thriller makes me smile but this one posed that of the two brothers, one was a smart dumb person and the other was a dumb smart person. It’s these random witty phrases that make me love the author’s books.

TJ, the main character, is so flawed but so very relatable. I was rooting for him from the start. A former convict and former alcoholic in a family of lawyers. He is a disappointment to his family and himself. At times I just wanted to give him a pep talk. He’s a character I’d like to see more of.

The book is fast paced and has a little action and a little investigation. For a book full of lawyers, there isn’t any courtroom action, but there is a case or two. And much family drama. If only the rest of TJ’s family was as likable as he is.

Make sure and read the author’s note at the end. Not only does she discuss her research in general, but the case in this book is ripped from the headlines and based upon a real life situation.

Edoardo Ballerini narrates this one and is the perfect voice for TJ. He pulled me into the story and I felt both TJs regrets and tenseness as he navigated the investigation.
