Synopsis: “No good deed goes unpunished. When Jane Larson—a hot-shot litigator for a large firm in New York City—helps out a friend, she is sucked into the unfamiliar world of divorce and child support.
Jane’s discovery of the deadbeat dad’s hidden assets soon unravels a web of lies, drugs, and murder that keeps getting more dangerous.
Soon, Jane is involved in a high stakes race to recover a missing suitcase of cash and catch the murderer before she becomes the next victim.”
This was a true legal thriller, fast-paced and intriguing. (And it even has a Halloween-type name – perfect for this time of year!!) Jane Larson takes on what appears to be a simple pro-bono case, but gets so much more. With a legal background myself, I always like to combine the law and books – so naturally I was pleased when the opportunity to review this one presented itself.
Although this was a quick read, it did take a while for the story to truly pull me in and for the pieces to start fitting together. At the beginning, I was uncertain of where exactly the authors were headed, but then the characters and dialogue took off and fit together making for an exciting read. Also, I did find it hard to connect with the characters. But the fast-paced drama was just what I needed for a plane journey home.
