Mini Review-Justice Redeemed by Scott Pratt
Darren Street is a hotshot lawyer who successfully kept a corrupt DA out of the running for a prominent political position. Two years later, he is asked to take on an impossible case–defend a man who admits he murdered two young children and threatens to do the same to Street’s child. Ultimately, Street finds himself framed for murder and the novel follows him as he attempts to clear his name. This was a most well-written but oddly paced book in terms of the timeline of events. The first and last acts cover a span of only a few days while the middle act covers several years. Street is a likeable character and the supporting characters are all fine. It’s a unique play on the typical courtroom lawyer novels. I do wish there was more courtroom and less behind-the-scenes action. Overall, a fairly enjoyable thriller.
I received this book for free from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
