After an accident at a nuclear facility, Kieran Mullaney is confronted with threats and unresponsiveness from his superiors. Concerned about the impact the explosion might have on his long-term health, he contacts lawyer and old college friend, Emily Hart about taking his case to court. She approaches her estranged father, Ryan, about taking on the role of co-counsel and together take the case. However, this was not a simple accident, and this will not be an easy case. With subterfuge, company loyalty, and bribery hiding the truth, do Emily, Ryan, and Kieran have a chance at winning their case?
I’m not a big fan of courtroom novels, but this one sounded interesting so I wanted to give it a try. This book offers a lot, the characters are believable, the plot is interesting and keeps moving. I think Johnson does a great job in describing how a nuclear facility functions, without getting too technical or scientific. The book didn’t grab my attention right from the beginning, but by the end, I couldn’t put it down. I really liked the way Johnson kept me guessing throughout the book.
I can think of a lot of different types of people who would enjoy this book. If you like John Grisham’s books, then this one would be right up your alley. If you are a fan of suspense or mystery, or like to wonder how all the pieces will fit together in the end, this is a perfect book for you. Also, what I really enjoyed about this book is that it was clean, with no bad language.
This is a good book, so if you are a fan of legal thrillers, give it a try. I’m interested in reading Johnson’s other book The Deposit Slip.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from Bethany House Publishers in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are my own.
