There were several side stories along the way . Also we are introduced to a public defender, Eli Hall, who serves as an adjunct professor with Mia . I look forward to the Mia Quinn mystery books and how all of these characters will develop over time .
I felt sorry for Mia as she found out what her deceased husband had done to his family. No sympathy wasted on him.
Gabe was a great kid & I was quite proud of him. He went from surly to an awakening, not often achieved in a 14 year old. Another case wrapped up quite satisfactorily. No spoilers
I was, also, proud of Mia for pursuing the hate crime/bullying on a misunderstood teenage boy, against the wishes of her boss, for his own political aspirations. The outcome of that case was the best all the way around.
The main case, dealing with the murder of Mia's best friend, Colleen, was no surprise to me as to who had done it, but the why was what I could not figure out. The first murder, of another prosecuting attorney, 4 years earlier was another surprise & I felt bad all the way around for the reason & the outcome.
The Grand Jury was terrific, but I do wish that we had heard about the indictments, or not, before all of the pieces fell into place. I know what I would have done in both cases presented to them, & I can only hope that the Grand Jury would have done the same.
Read this well written & researched book. You will not be disappointed. I am looking forward to more..........
Mia Quinn, a prosecutor, is assigned the case of her colleague's murder. It's personal, as they were friends and Quinn was on the phone with her when she was fatally shot. There may be ties to a previous murder and there are enough plausible suspects to keep things interesting. Quinn's plate is full -- she is a recent widow with significant financial problems, a rebellious teenage son, a young daughter with night terrors, and a formerly neglectful father who is trying to reestablish a relationship with her.
This is a Christian novel. The religion is fairly light in this one, as Quinn is not yet a believer. I expect it will become more pronounced as the series progresses, but the author's touch so far is very light.
I liked the pace and the plot and it was great to read about a main character realistically struggling to balance her work/life responsibilities.
