it was amazing
Read in February, 2012

Police, politics, attorneys, terrorists, ruthless murderers, and money.....lots of money. Put all of these together and you get a complicated, "shady" case of who done it. Had Matt really killed his girlfriend or was he framed?

The characters are intense, wealthy, and quite interesting. They range from police detectives to wealthy attorneys and from spoiled, rich children and wives to house help....some who really shouldn't be trusted. Each character has his or her own unique characterization and connections. The reader will get a glimpse into corruption in investigations and the alarming happenings that occur inside and outside of the courtroom when trying to prove an accused person is innocent. This may include "eliminating" some of the suspects or folks that would have been able to testify.

Matt, the accused, was sequestered in his mother and step-father's home on at 500K bail for the murder of his girlfriend who he was going to marry in a few months. Matt denies the charge, but the evidence whether honest or contrived kept mounting and evidence tampering by skilled people couldn't be proven.

The book takes you from New York to Syria showing how intelligence operations and conspiracy works. If you enjoy police investigations, criminal happenings, devious characters, and just plain intrigue, this is a book you won’t want to miss. It gets a little confusing at times, but the intrigue and plot are excellent and keep you interested. There are a few surprises as well. It is an easy, good read that you can also learn from with respect to international contact and police investigations. 4/5
