I listened to this title as an audiobook, and I enjoyed it quite a bit. It has an intriguing opening that showcased the main character’s personality. This book also managed to keep the exposition interesting by mixing a lot of the facts into the action of the book. This book did not end up where I thought it would, and I really appreciated that. Overall, this was a good read, and I would definitely suggest it to mystery fans.
If you are looking for something similar, Andrew Grant’s book Invisible takes another perspective on legal thrillers by following a veteran who becomes a janitor to stop someone from tampering with a trial he is personally invested in. Another option is David Dow’s Confessions of an Innocent Man, which follows Rafael as he takes revenge after being wrongfully convicted of his wife’s murder.
