Jamie Quinn is still recovering from the death of her mother when her cousin Adam lands himself in serious trouble. Jamie’s aunt begs for her help in defending the murder charges Adam finds himself charged with – the death of his good friend and a former rock star. Jamie is not happy about this as she’s a family attorney, not a criminal one. However, she can’t let her cousin languish in jail for a crime she knows he didn’t commit.
Adam suffers from Asperger’s syndrome. In his anxiety at seeing his good friend dead, he blurts out that he is responsible. Adam is immediately arrested and now it’s up to Jamie to find the real killer. With the help of a private investigator and her close friend, Jamie tries to untangle the mess before her cousin’s life is totally destroyed.
I listened to this one on audio, although I do have the e-book as well. It’s a short book. I was able to finish listening in only two days. The mystery took a few twists and turns along the way and was very enjoyable to listen to.
I adored the main character. She had many realistic characteristics and her devotion to her family is admirable. She’s a strong character and I’m looking forward to reading more stories featuring her as the protagonist. I do wish it were longer. It left me wanting more, but that’s not a bad thing.
