This is an utterly disturbing book. As I read, I found myself squinting during certain scenes, as I knew the outcome was going to be bad, but I couldn't help but continue reading. Books One and Two drew me in, and I couldn't stop reading, but I found Book Three to be a bit slower. Many of the courtroom speeches felt a bit repetitive to me, but I still found them to be engaging. This is a definite must-read.
