Andy Barber has been an assistant district attorney in his suburban Massachusetts county for more than twenty years. He is respected in his community, tenacious in the courtroom, and happy at home with his wife, Laurie, and son, Jacob. But when a shocking crime shatters their New England town, Andy is blindsided by what happens next: his fourteen-year-old son is charged with the murder of a fellow student. Every parental instinct Andy has rallies to protect his boy. Jacob insists that he is innocent, and Andy believes him. But as damning facts and shocking revelations surface, as a marriage threatens to crumble and the trial intensifies, and as the crisis reveals how little a father knows about his son, Andy will face a trial of his own--between loyalty and justice, between truth and allegation, between a past he's tried to bury and a future he cannot conceive.

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.
