Book Review of Dark Moon, A Legal Thriller by Deborah Hawkins
A very captivating book that held my attention throughout the entire story. I never thought I was into legal thrillers, but these last two books, have really made me rethink that. They have been well written and very captivating. I think I may have found a new genre.
Dark Moon, the story of Sarah Knight, a legendary criminal defense attorney. Is appointed to represent Alexa Reed, a former U.S. Supreme Court clerk and the daughter-in-law of Supreme Court Justice Coleman Reed. Alexa is arrested for the murders of her ex-husband, attorney Michael Reed, and La Jolla psychologist Ronald Brigman.
Sarah is new to San Diego when she is assigned the case and is warned that doing anything more than the minimum for her client will be professional suicide. Coleman Reed wants Alexa sentenced to death without delay. But Sarah and her investigator, ex-FBI agent Jim Mitchell, refuse to be intimidated even after attempts on Sarah and Alexa’s lives.
On my scale of 1 to 5, 1 being don’t bother and 5 a true page turner. I give Dark Moon a solid 4. This book is a real page turner and one I couldn’t put down.
