If you liked the first Robin Lockwood book, you will like this one too! I really like the narrator Therese Plummer. She ends up on a lot of the books I listen to! This one is intriguing because it has some ripped-from-the-headlines plot points and at times makes you question your view of the justice system and what justice is in certain circumstances. I‘m assuming there will be a third one and I will listen to that one too!

Highly recommend. A young teen accused a popular college athlete of rape. He is convicted but is he actually guilty? Many twists in the story make it suspenseful.

Mehso-so

Lots of murder, lies, &misdirection takes place here &it‘ll keep readers guessing. There are multiple crimes committed throughout this book &there are times I felt it was a bit too much, but it does come together at the end.

It read almost like a cozy mystery but maybe a tad darker. I thought the two rape cases would be the focal point, but they weren‘t. While I found the plot compelling, I felt the execution needed some work.
