Defending Jacob by William Landay

Defending Jacob - William Landay I don't read a lot of legal thrillers, but the one I did decide to read this time didn't disappoint. Defending Jacob is a page-turner with an ending I did not see coming. Lots of discussion points on psychology, parenting, and trust. The narrator's voice and excerpts of a grand jury proceeding set a year after the crime are powerful tools used by the author to lead and mislead the reader. I had a great time being misled, though.
