REVIEW for Old City Hall

A big thank you to Simon & Shuster Inc. for sending this book along to me.

TITLE: Old City Hall
AUTHOR: Robert Rotenberg

GENRE: Mystery/Thriller

RATING: 3.5 Stars

I had never heard of Robert Rotenberg before reading this book - but I have since found out that he was a courtroom lawyer, which would certainly explain the obvious thorough knowledge the author has of the criminal/courtroom system.

This, to me, was the best feature of this book. While the storyline was interesting - i.e. a popular radio host admits that he is a killer - but is he really? what really got interested in this book was the detail and research that was done on the whole criminal system - including the minute details of the crime and the victim as well as the search for the truth. I found myself fascinated with the indepth descriptions and this, made this book a real page turner for me!

I also like the fact that this author is Canadian and based his story in Toronto - around "the Hall" which I actually can visualize having seen it a few times in the past when I visited Toronto.

This is a sound mystery/thriller book that will keep you reading.

That does sound interesting. I'm going to guess that the radio show host wasn't the killer.
