Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Narrator Andre Blake voices Cross’s frustration, fear, and determination and captures the impact the case has on his family and friends. The multilayered story alternates between past and present and between the courtroom and another case that draws in Alex, his partner, and his loved ones. In true Patterson fashion, as tension rises for the characters and a verdict becomes imminent, the story also takes the opportunity to tackle topical issues, including race, justice, and technology. Listeners will be immediately invested in this suspenseful story.” AudioFile
