Defending Jacob

Defending Jacob - William Landay Defending Jacob is a riveting and very enjoyable novel one that will have you turning the pages.

A son accused of Murder and a family on trial.

Andy Barbers job is to put killers behind bars and when a boy from his son Jacob's school is found murdered Andy is under pressure to find his killer and prosecute.
When a crucial piece of evidence turns up linking Jacob to the murder the Barbers lives are turned upside down. This is every parent’s worst nightmare and Andy and Laurie will do anything to defend their child but while doing so learn that Jacob has his secrets.

This is exactly the sort of Novel I normally stay away from but this was a group read and therefore I joined in and I loved the book.

This was one of those book that had me sitting up longer than normal to finish. I loved the characters and the plot and I really enjoyed the authors style of writing.

I am normally tight with my 5 stars but this book really made me sit up and think as it was a story that really caught my attention and I enjoyed the Novel and would recommend it to others.
