I received this book free in exchange for an honest review.


Geoffrey Bartell the Third is on trial for first-degree murder. The problem is that the prosecution has no idea as to who the victim is. There are no matches to his fingerprints or DNA in the database and they’re pretty sure that even without it, they will win the case. But they aren’t 100% certain on that.

Geoffrey and his lawyer have a very peculiar plan in order to defend Geoffrey. Not one witness is questioned at the time the prosecution questions them. They eventually call the same forensics expert that the prosecution worked and through his words, the match to the DNA and fingerprints of the dead man were the same as Geoffrey Bartell the Third’s. This causes an uproar in the courts.

The two lawyers and judge go behind closed doors and the judge lets the two lawyers have at each other for a few minutes before he decides the testimony still stands. The next witness on the stand is the accused himself, Geoffrey. And what he says, causes an even bigger uproar than the forensic expert.


I really enjoyed reading this book. It flowed nicely and there were no questions that weren’t unanswered. This book is definitely a legal thriller laced with suspense. I read this book in a matter of 2 hours and was glued to the screen the entire time I was reading. I would highly recommend this book for those that like legal thrillers or just thrillers in general.
