When sixteen-year-old Hannah Sheraton is arrested for the murder of her stepgrandfather, a California Supreme Court justice, her distraught mother turns to once infamous defense attorney, Josie Bates. Now a small town lawyer in Hermosa Beach, Josie wants nothing to do with the case since the gruesome evidence points to Hannah's guilt. When the girl is charged as an adult, Josie can't turn her back
It dragged on and a bunch of stuff was opened up, but never closed. I had to fight really hard to finish this. No wonder it's free.
This was the first book by this author that I have read. It gripped my attention immediately and would not let go until I finished it. The characters were interesting & one could not help but have sympathy for Hannah. Josie's determination to save Hannah was admirable even if it meant the possibility of unwanted changes in her personal & professional life.
Great murder mystery!
This book is very well written. The characters are well described and developed through the book. There are twists and unexpected turns in the plot which keep you guessing. I really enjoyed it, and, look forward to reading more of he author's other books.
