{Review} A Criminal Defense

A Criminal Defense: A Harlan Donnally Novel
Betrayal wounds.Revenge destroys.

Over three decades, Hamlin's practice devolved into just another racket: intimidating witnesses, suborning perjury, destroying evidence, laundering money. But is he the victim of murder—or of a dangerous sexual encounter gone wrong? And when law enforcement believes justice has already been done, who can be trusted to find out?

Once again in the city where his career came to a shattering end, former detective Harlan Donnally resolved it wouldn't be him. He had no desire to immerse himself in the deceit that was Hamlin's career . . . nor entangle himself in the corrupted loyalties that turned the dead lawyer's associates into both co-conspirators and suspects . . . nor make himself the proxy for the hatreds and betrayals Hamlin left behind. But the presiding judge demanded otherwise—and that might cost Donnally his life.

The only issue I had with this one was that it had a lot going on!  This book is just under 350 pages but was a fast read!  With unexpected turns and complications this book is a deff must read for those who love thrillers!  The characters are not washed out but are conflicted human beings that makes them feel so real!  I read this in a day as I just couldnt bring myself to put it down.  "*I received a copy of this book for free to review, this in no way influenced my review, all opinions are 100% honest and my own."
