it was ok
Read in November, 2011

Hmmm. How to describe this one? The lead cast of characters:
Assistant District Attorney: Was a victim of violence as a child, has a schizophrenic brother that was connected to the violence. Is sleeping with...
District Attorney: Who assigns her to a high-profile case, though she's never done one before.
Defendent: A man accused of murder. He is either a schizophrenic or a psychopath with very rich parents.
Detective: Investigating the murder, is interested in the ADA.

The whole book is a giant mindgame about who is believable, and who will win. I wasn't happy with the ending, as I feel that the ADA was left more wounded than she was at the beginning. My preference would have been to have her go through hell as a cathartic experience and have her come out stronger at the end.
Would be interested to see if others felt the same way.
