9781780222189 DEFENDING JACOB BY WILLIAM LANDAY

A SON ACCUSED OF MURDER.

A FAMILY ON TRAIL.

Andy Barber’s job is to put killers behind bars. But the small town outside of Boston where he lives is the kind of place parents go to bring up kids safely and violent crime is rarity.

Until a boy from his son Jacob’s school is found stabbed to death in the park. As the whole town reels in shock, Andy comes under intense pressure to find and prosecute the perpetrator.

At first the investigation seems to be going nowhere. but then a crucial piece of evidence turns up linking Jacob to the murder. In a heartbeat Andy and his wife Laurie’s  lives are turned upside down.

Not only is their son accused of being  a cold-blooded killer, but suddenly it seems  as the family itself is on trail.

In the face of every parent’s worst nightmare, Andy and Laurie will do anything to defend their child. Like all teenagers, Jacob has his secrets,  but deep down  they know him better than anyone.

Don’t they?

 I read this a long time ago. I totally loved this story it has an unforgettable story of a marriage and family in crisis with a packed punched at the end.  I highly recommend DEFENDING JACOB to all crime fans.
