This question contains spoilers… view spoiler [Did Jacob really kill the boy? At one point the dad mentions that the pedophile is the real killer. Was he just conveying to us what he believed deep down? I empathized with the father's unwavering support and faith in his son, and I walk away from this book hoping Jacob truly was innocent.
Carrie This answer contains spoilers… view spoiler [ I thought an undertone of the whole book was TRY to believe in Jacob's innocence. I felt almost tugged at throughout- TRY to see his innocence I think the author led us through like that. It forced me to put myself in a lot of the characters shoes, thinking as each one might- how can I see his innocence here? As his father, his mother, friend- all the while having that unfortunate sinking feeling in my stomach that he was guilty.
Well written, I thought. I listened to the audio book.

Many things were a turn off for me in this legal thriller, like Andy Barber's propensity to hint at future developments as he narrates the past.
To wit: "I think about that now, how I should have seen Laurie then, should have paid more attention I was a fool I know that now. Then at the end, there's a "twist," followed by an abrupt ending where we have to guess what happens.
And the story Many things were a turn off for me in this legal thriller, like Andy Barber's propensity to hint at future developments as he narrates the past. And the story itself didn't pull me in as much as I thought it would. I admit some issues are raised that would make for good discussion how far would you go for your child? Is there really a murder gene? View all 63 comments. Jul 27, Jill rated it it was amazing. Well played William Landay, I would never have imagined the ending of this book. I will definitely have a "book hangover" from this one.

To switch roles from lead prosecutor to paternal protectorate is obviously necessary for the ADA, but it does nothing to curb the tide of repercussions for him, his family, and the case. I was also riveted by my own fluctuation between empathy for a boy unjustly dealing with a murder rap and revulsion for him as doubts of his innocence grew. Also, this book has wicked cool courtroom scenes. This seemingly unrelated testimony adds to the suspense of the book and its relevance is not revealed until the final chapter.

If you can get past a few contrived plot points this is where readers will divide , and engage with the narrator, whose reliability or unreliability is a puzzle to piece together, you will be satisfied with this warm yet dark story of a community and family unhinged by a violent crime. The author is a former DA who is skilled at informing the reader about the law and procedure without telegraphing it.
The narrative is even, polished, and intelligently observant of a community in shock, a family shattered. I have relatives in Newton, Massachusetts, where this thriller takes place.
