Sunday Synopsis

Mirror, Mirror, A Legal ThrillerMirror, Mirror, A Legal Thriller by Deborah Hawkins
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

What a great thriller! Don't give up early on this one. At first, it seems like two different stories, but these stories collide in a way you can't imagine.

Hawkins' writing reminds me of John Grisham. I love a legal thriller! This was hard to put down.

Jeff Ryder, a former assistant DA, has worked his way up to partner at a prestigious law firm only to lose it in the same day when and "Innocence Project" lawyer files suit against him claiming he coerced testimony from a witness several years prior. The trial involved two small-time criminals who shot a police officer who responded to a burglary. The police officer, Chris Rafferty, was left a quadriplegic.

Ryder loses his expensive lifestyle, moves to a crummy apartment, and hangs his shingle in a little office in a strip mall. In the process of trying to clear his name, he finds evidence that the body armor Officer Rafferty was wearing was defective. He meets with the family and agrees to sue the San Diego Police Department and the maker of the body armor on behalf of the family.

When Ryder is accused of murder, he has an alibi, but that alibi will ruin the Rafferty's relationship and possibly their case.

This is truly a thriller full of suspense and surprises. It will keep you on the edge of your seat!
