When a local school boy is found murdered in the woods near the school, local assistant D.A's son Jacob is implicated. There's a lot of legal jargon here but it doesn't overwhelm you if you don't love that sort of a book. Queston is--is Jacob guilty or innocent? Have Andy's Father, Grandfather and Great-Grandfather passed on some sort of a 'Murder Gene?' or is Jacob just a victim of circumstance? You'll be kept wondering almost to the very last what the answer is. Recommended for those who enjoy legal thrillers or suspense books.

It was OK. The audio made it difficult to skim through the bickering couple conversations - very tiring. I like the details of legalese. Not great fan of reader's voice.

I couldn't even get by the first cd as the narrator's voice was so annoying but i would guess that it was a good story.
