This book has been sat on my kindle for I don't know how long. I have kept meaning to get around to reading it, so finally after seeing book 3 was due out, I decided I better start book one.
In this story we have 2 brothers, Sam and Joe, one a detective and one a Defense Lawyer.
Both brothers trying to come to terms with the murder of their younger sister. Both brothers with a past they keep away. Both brothers wanting to be the best at what they do.
Joe is the Lawyer of a client that Sam now has interest in. Ronnie Bagley whose wife and child have disappeared, is being accused of murdering them. But with no bodies Can the Police prove that he has killed them, or can Joe prove that he didn't. Its a tough case for everyone involved. And has more that a few twist to keep you going.
I'm not going to give to much away, I don't want to spoil any of the story, But it is A brilliantly well written book. with enough twists and turns to keep you guessing, and enough suspense to keep your heart racing.
I have read most of Neils other books, and this was again just as good. Really good read.
