Very protective ending

Just a twisted journey. I Love the story and was shocked with the ending. Jury did their job. The defendant did his.

Follow the dots and it all comes together

I had a hard time getting interested in this book. It jumped from person and plot to another person and plot with nothing connecting them. Until one night in a Mexican jail.
A truly brilliant mind with the imagination of someone who has been involved in the legal system.
I found this book by accident and just gone back and purchased the first book to see how Thad got his start.
