Landay does a great job of building the suspense in this novel and offers readers a look at the impact a crime has on the victim’s and suspect’s families. However, at times the story moves too slowly and details unrelated to the main storyline could easily have been omitted.
District Attorney Andy Barber is eager to solve the case of a young boy’s murder, especially since the boy was his son Jacob’s classmate. The case takes a surprising turn when Barber discovers a knife in his son’s drawer that could potentially be the murder weapon and Jacob’s fingerprint is found on the victim’s jacket. At the risk of losing his job, his wife and his standing in the community, Barber must prove his son’s innocence. (DELACORTE, Feb., 432 pp., $26.00)
