***THIS BOOK WAS PROVIDED TO NERD GIRL IN EXCHANGE FOR AN HONEST REVIEW***
An old crime and an overly ambitious district attorney bring two college friends back together. One is a white police officer and the other a Native American attorney. The officer is involved in the arrest of a juvenile Native American but, when he sees that the District Attorney is going to railroad the young man to help jump start his political career, he calls his old college friend. The young man arrested is the son of a suspect in a serial murder case that has never been solved. Prejudice in the community, and sloppy police work when the boy’s father was originally arrested, has made solving the crime impossible. The friendship, though never in doubt, is strained at times, but provides the salvation for the attorney when the case takes an unexpected twist, and a witness comes forward that no one knew existed.
This has all the elements to keep you turning pages from start to finish. The writing, both the telling of the story and the story itself, are five star material so you may ask ,”Why has Derek only given it four?”
The answer is that to award the full five stars available I need to be drawn in to the story, identify with at least one character and really care what is going to happen next.
Unfortunately this was not the case. For me too much time was spent setting the scene and making sure you knew that an attempt was being made to railroad an innocent and promote a career.
That said, it was well worth four stars and I recommend it.
