A legal thriller this had a lot going on at the same time Sam McRae is a small time lawyer but she gets into trouble big time. Defending one person who gave her a lot of sass, she never expected to get involved in a murder investigation, where the murders keep on coming.
Involving a lot of people, and those seemingly completely out of the blue the strands are very difficult to connect and draw together into an understandable whole. Covering gaming, teen porn, and the difficulties of teenage life in homes where there is no direction or protection was sad.
The part played by Tina the 13 year old was the saddest part of this story. Defenseless, unprotected by parents who should have done more her situation must be duplicated many many times and it must be to the despair of Social Service organisations in the country. So apart from the murder mystery thriller angle, this was the part that really tugged at my feelings whilst reading the book.
The title certainly does Tina justice though that was all she got.

I'd have to pass on this one.ReplyDelete
I'm not sure this would be for me, but that's an intriguing cover.ReplyDelete
Mystica, I enjoy reading legal thrillers but like the others I'll let this one pass too.ReplyDelete
