Guilty Blood by Rick Acker

“Jessica Ames was shopping for salmon when her life shattered for the second time” (location 106).  From the very first line, I was drawn into the story.   When Jessica’s son, Brandon, is accused of murder and the evidence stacks against him, her friend and lawyer, Nate Daniels, is called on to help.  While not a criminal trial lawyer, Nate at least cares enough to make sure nothing gets missed.

This is the first book I’ve read by this author and it won’t be my last.  The story line was intricate. There were aspects in the criminal case that surprised me.  I loved that. I enjoyed seeing an autistic hacker play a big part in the case.  Kevin had such a desire to put a criminal behind bars but couldn’t understand why his hacking was a problem.

All of the trial and court aspects were so authentic and believable.  As the case went along, things became quite dangerous.  I felt like I was reading a John Grisham novel.  If you like court room drama, I’d highly recommend this book.
