Rate: 4/5 stars
In a weedy lot on the outskirts of Memphis, two boys watch a shiny Lincoln pull up to the curb…Eleven-year-old Mark Sway and his younger brother were sharing a forbidden cigarette when a chance encounter with a suicidal lawyer left Mark knowing a bloody and explosive secret: the whereabouts of the most sought-after dead body in America. Now Mark is caught between a legal system gone mad and a mob killer desperate to cover up his crime. And his only ally is a woman named Reggie Love, who has been a lawyer for all of four years. Prosecutors are willing to break all the rules to make Mark talk. The mob will stop at nothing to keep him quiet. And Reggie will do anything to protect her client –even take a last, desperate gamble that could win Mark his freedom… or cost them both their lives.
The Client is another great book I read last year here are 4 reasons you should read it too!
- Great character development. Nothing is rushed.
- You get a chance to play detective as the story unfolds. Who doesn’t like a good guessing game?
- Plot twist. You think you have it all figured out, the next minute you realize you don’t!
- Humour. The protagonist being an 11 year old has quite a sense of humour.
‘The truth can get you killed’
A thrilling crime fiction that will have you on the edge of your seat.
