    I really, really wanted to like this book I ve read two others by the author and enjoyed them particularly Veritas but I just couldn t get into The Acquittal I couldn t buy into the kidnapping plot at all and the characters just didn t make me want to care much about them The entire romantic sexual plot aspects between Josie and Lauren felt wrong to me and r...

    One of the best lesfic mysteries I ve read in a long time Laughlin s pacing and plotting are excellent, and she has created a complicated but lovable protagonist dealing as best she can with bipolar issues think Clare Danes in Homeland There s romance but the story is not a romance and there s enough humor to keep the novel from being overly dark.Only two things threw me off dated chapters, which seemed wholly unnecessary, and the protagonists Herculean efforts in a full leg cast Minor det One of the best lesfic mysteries I ve read in a long time Laughlin s pacing and plotting are excellent, and she has created...

    The plot of this book was just too flawed From the bit too far fetched overall plot to the twists and turns that made no sense, then add the strange ending where the protagonist guesses at who might have been the murderer it was ...

    This was a really interesting read and a new spin on the noire kind of detective I really enjoyed seeing how Josie s struggle with bipolar affected her career and decisions Lots of shadow and dark in this piece, and it pulls you in.
