High-flying lawyer Jessica Wells has it all. A successful career, loving husband Tom and a family she adores. But one case – and one client – will put all that at risk.
Edward Blake. An ordinary life turned upside down – or a man who quietly watched television while his wife was murdered upstairs? With more questions than answers and a case too knotted to unravel, Jessica suspects he’s protecting someone.
Then she comes home one day and her husband utters the words no one ever wants to hear. Sit down … I have something to tell you
Now Jessica must fight not only for the man she defends, but for the man she thought she trusted with her life – her husband.
I was so excited to see another book by Susan out, and couldn’t wait to read it. I just love to style that Susan writes, it captures you in from the very first page and you don’t want to come up for air until the ending. You will be gripped from this terrifically woven tale about Jessica who is a lawyer and has a lovely family and husband. But one of her clients may put all that in jeopardy. Edward is Jessica’s client and one night when he was watching TV downstairs his wife was murdered upstairs, what really went on that day? did he do it? or is something more sinister at play here? we go on a journey with Jessica to uncover the real truth about what happened on that deadly night. Then just when things tense up her husband says to her I have something to tell you.. what could it be? twists and turns make this book engaging and gripping. I was sad when it came to the ending but by god that ending was superb. I wish one of Susan’s books was turned into a film as I feel as though it would be a major hit.
I received an ARC copy of this book for an honest review.
