Retribution by Jilliane Hoffman
This book was recommended during Tea Time with Marce's Thrill Week. The author was an Assistant State Attorney, so it was good to read more legal details than the typical thriller though from memory, though its main focus was NOT on court scenes (which I do enjoy).
I read this over 3 months ago, and so a lot of the details have been forgotten. I remember I enjoyed reading it and learned something new, such as status of limitation on rape cases, and how it might be different in each state - since I didn't grow up here in the US, it still baffled me sometime how each state is so different when it comes to laws. I mean, for even something more general like car seat laws for children, it differs in each state in terms of height / weight / type of car seat needed. What if you go on a road trip? Do you need to get a new car seat in each state?!
Anyway I digress.
So the story didn't have much staying power, and none of the characters made a lasting impression, but it was a fun read (if you could call thrillers "fun") while it lasted. It was a little long though at 420 pages and could possibly be edited to a shorter length.
3.5 / 5 .
Note - The book was borrowed from the library.
