Joni | 625 comments As I had read another review of this book, someone said it was a mixture of John Grisham and Jodi Piccoult. I would have to agree.....family drama and legal courtroom case.

A young teen boy is dead and the assistant DA's son is getting the blame. But who really did it??? The father believed that his son did not do it. The mother had her doubts.....especially after it came out that Jacob had what was called the "murder" gene. Meaning....did his heritage predispose him to murder?

I did a small google search on the "murder gene" and came across this article.....written by William Landay. Very interesting.

I honestly didn't know how this one would turn out until the very end. The book kept my interest the entire time.

***This would be a great "Family Drama" book if family drama is selected for may's tag.
