This is a truly gifted author. I was also a criminal prosecutor like the author in real life and his character in the novel; my length of term was over 20 years. This is the best read that I've had in many years. This man's work is truly a treasure; read this author, you will not be disappointed.

Unbelievable dad.

The father is this book was way overboard. He stood up for his son and threw away evidence that he knew he should have kept. The way the father deluded himself ruined the book for me. It was unbelievable - his son or not. I don't want to read anything else by this author.

Interesting read.

The author of Defending Jacob can write. Not a boring sentence in this novel. I love endings that match the novel. When they dont match the book Im antagonized. Not with this book. You won't see the ending coming. Highly recommend.

Freaking Amazing!!!

If you're someone who loves a lot of dialogue, you will definitely love this book. I personally love dialogue so I just loved how much of there it was. This book kept me on my toes the entire time and I could not put it down at all. Was one of the first books I read where the author doesn't make the answer obvious at the beginning. Truly a thriller masterpiece. William Landay masters the ability of questioning if you could remain loyal to your family or job. This is also a show on Apple TV starring Chris Evans and each actor played out there roles beautifully. Overall, the book (and show) are just a chef's kiss.

Gripping Novel That I Could Not Put Down

Incredible page-turner that draws you into the story completely. The reader becomes so invested in each of the characters that the book becomes impossible to put down. You have to keep reading so you can find out what happens.
