REVIEW for False Convictions

Thank you to Hachette Books for sending this book to me!

TITLE: False Convictions

AUTHOR: Tim Green

GENRE: Thriller

RATING: 4 Stars

I am a big fan of Tim Green - this guy knows how to write a thriller and False Convictions rates right up there. Green has brought back Cassey Jordan and she is a delightful mixture of sarcasm and idealism - she is fighting for the underprivileged and is approached by Robert Graham - he has lots of money and is asking Jordan to investigate a murder which happened in 1989 and where Dwayne Hubbard was jailed. Although she has her reservations, she agrees.

As she digs deeper and deeper into the old case, she realizes that perhaps Hubbard was falsely accused. At the same time, journalist Jacke Carlson is invetigating Graham and asks Jordan for help. While Jordan tries to save the life of an innocent man, she is wondering more and more why Graham would be so interested and involved in such a case - all the while being pushed by Carlson. Carlson and Jordan actually are a good couple - they are interesting and i found myself involved in their theories and investigation.

There are lots of twists and the plot moves at a great clip - which, to me, is incredibly important in a thriller. Some of the events felt a tad contrived, but I didn't really care because I was so heavily invested in the storyline.

From the first sentence, you can feel as though nobody is truly who they appear to be and Graham, while I could not get a handle on completely, I kind of knew had some deep dark secrets.

This is a wonderful thriller - I won't give away the ending, but suffice it to say it was perfect.
