FINAL WITNESS (Legal Thriller-England-Cont) – G+
Simon Tolkien – 1st book
Random House, 2002 – Hardcover
Young Thomas Robinson is alone with his mother in her family’s 16th century home. Two men break in and murder her after she manages to hide Thomas in a priest’s cupboard, through which he sees one of the killers. Thomas suspects his father’s assistant, Greta, is involved, particularly when the men come back some time later looking for him and he hears her name.
This was an interesting legal thriller with little time spent in the courtroom, although was interesting to see the English legal system. Even though the characters were a bit stereotypical and the ending predictable, I still found myself turning the pages. It’s a good first book.
