Between convicting criminals as an Ash Park district attorney, dealing with her jerk ex-husband (who also happens to be her boss), and caring for her dying brother, Shannon is already stretched thin. So she’s less than thrilled when new evidence from a closed case emerges—evidence suggesting she threw ...more

I received an advance copy of this book with the expectation that I would write an honest review of it after reading it.

I'm one of those people who is practically impossible to surprise. I can smell a plot twist from a mile away and I always figure out the mystery long before I finish a book. Somehow O'Flynn has the ability to to leave me reeling at the conclusion of her work.

This book was beautifully crafted. The story is complex and the characters are compelling. None of the side plots are w

Conviction is O'Flynn's second novel featuring the irritable but gold-hearted Detective Petrotsky. O'Flynn writes powerful, multifaceted characters. In the beginning of CONVICTION, Shannon, the POV character, is an intelligent, passionate, guilt-ridden prosecutor who sometimes can't see past her own anger and convictions. She'll stop at nothing to see justice done, even if it means putting the wrong person in jail. I could feel her anger in almost every word she spoke, and I understood it. She h ...more

O'Flynn's first book, Famished, was dark and mysterious and fast-paced, and Conviction is all of that and then some. District attorney Shannon Taylor has locked up the wrong person, and now there's a demented killer after her and her family. In the first book of the series, Famished, Shannon felt cold and emotionally detached -- but now we get to see the truth of who she is, and it is beautiful and heart-wrenching. Her best friend Morrison, a detective on the Ash Park force, is at turns brooding ...more

That was a heck of a story, really great plot. This second Ash Park story features Petrosky and Morrison again with Shannon Taylor from the prosecutor's office being in the lead role. Shannon gets a conviction for the murder of a drug dealer but doesn't feel great about it. Both Petrosky and Morrison have doubts about Ashley Johnson's guilt. After some stalkery things happen to Shannon she starts to think the detectives might have a point.

Conviction: An Ash Park Novel (Volume 2) by Meghan O'Flynn

An enticing read that I could not put down! This book can be read as a standalone. Shannon Taylor is good at what she does but when she mistakenly puts an innocent mother away things begin happening. She already has a lot on her plate with her brother but now she is being targeted by someone else. A little romance also blossoms for her in this novel. Shannon is a very strong female character and I loved following her as she raced against

This was an excellent mystery. The way the characters were developed and portrayed in this story was awesome. I hated one of the characters more than I hated the killer. They were that much of an asshole. Didn't figure out the killer til the end, which is always good and it could have been anybody. Although you can't tell who it is, if you read people or understand human behavior, you know who the killer isn't before our main character. I loved that about the story. I haven't read a mystery in a ...more

O'Flynn has done it again! I was gripping onto the edge of my seat while reading this book. She has a rare talent, writing fiction stories that seem so real, you have to sleep with the lights on. I loved seeing familiar faces from Famished mixed in with the expanded cast of characters - can't wait to see what comes next!

Conviction is the second instalment in the gripping Ash Park Series by Meghan O’Flynn. I am really enjoying this series, as it has all the elements required to make it a great thriller. This second book could be read as a standalone, but as it has recurring characters, and some backstory from the first book- I really recommend reading book one before embarking on this one, so you get the entire picture and the ‘complete’ experience.

Conviction is the second book in Meghan O’Flynn’s Ash Park series that takes place in the run down area of Detroit. It could be read as a standalone but there is a backstory and characters that are present throughout the series.
You can see how the writer has gotten deeper into the Ash Park world, the story is complex and the characters have layers, you learn more about them and it makes you understand where they come from and why they act the way they do. All of them are like us – dark and light

We start with the prologue where Shannon is in court prosecuting Ashley, a woman who is accused of killing her drug dealer boyfriend. This part is in Ashley’s POV. Did she really do it? What's going to happen to her baby?

Shannon is proud that she got a conviction in her case, but was she really the killer? Ashley’s lawyer is convinced she didn’t do it and is determined to find the truth. When some leads come in on a case that she thought was closed, things start

Another fantastic read from Meghan O’Flynn, the story was well written and full of excitement and action. I love that the storyline is both complex but easy to follow and the characters are compelling and captivating. One of my favourite things about this story and the author (as well as the things above) is how well she conceals plot twists, they just appear when you least expect them and I never predicted what was going to happen.
