    BOTM pick for February 2020 This will be a short review, because the less you know about this book going in the better, but what a wild ride While some parts of the plot were a bit far fetched and reaching at times, it didn t cause my interest to wane, and if you can suspend the need for 100% believability, I think you ll enjoy this book as much as I did We get two mysteries for the price of one in this book, and if that kind of a ba

    3.5 starsHeld my interest and although I have some mixed feelings with some of the stuff at the end, overall this was a good read It was almost like I was getting two mysteries for the price of one as the story alternated between the jury trial from ten years ago as well the murder that occurred in the present time.Fifteen year old Jessica Silver, vanished ten years ago The case made national news as her family has money, lots of it Jessica s teacher, Bo

    Being a juror on a high profile murder case has got to be a thrill ride and a half looking at the bloody evidence and weighing witness statements, the savage craziness of the media interest, then finally getting to decide the fate of a man charged with murder It s got to be just like tv, right Exciting Maybe even a shot at your own fame 15 minutes or otherwise.But what Maya Seale got wasn t quite fame, it was INFAMY Not convinced of Bobby Nock s guilt beyond re

    4 courtroom jury starsAh, the dread when that envelope shows up in your mailbox that you ve been selected to show up for jury duty I ve been summoned several times, but I ve never served on a jury After reading this book, I don t think I want to, especially not a high profile, drawn out case I didn t realize that this author wrote the screenplay for The Imitation Game fabulous movie Knowing that now, I can see how this book almost seems like it was made for the big screen Th

    I absolutely loved The Holdout for the first two thirds or so of the book The premise was clever, the implementation was stellar, and I was thoroughly invested in both the story and attempting to determine how it would end Then, it fell apart the ending just did not work for me Some people do not mind an ending that is unrealistic or that seems out of place or not in keeping with the story I am very much not that person An ending can really ruin a book for me as I have mentioned in many a

    A thoroughly entertaining really very clever book in the end, especially given all the influences I thought about whilst reading this were referenced by the author himself later in the bookAnd used to really good effect within the resolution.Kind of thought provoking too a book with a moral dilemma at the heart of it wrapped up in a mystery element that is very intriguing Great pace, plotting and addictive quality with engaging eclectic characters and a what would you do vibe that ll keep this n
