Plenty of Terror in this One!
Trial and Terror, by Adam L. Penenberg, is an interesting but rather rough mystery. Penenberg is an excellent writer - I just had a hard time with the tough language. I'm sure many will enjoy it though. It centers around Summer Neuwith, a public defender who defends a rapist despite her own rape history. He gets off and then begins to stalk Summer, knowing everything about her. Add to this, the prosecutor is killed and Summer's mother is missing. All these little sub-stories come together in the end - a very interesting end indeed. If you like mysteries you'll like this book. But if you're a prude (and maybe I am), the language may be a little bit much for you. I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for my review.
