Nothing quite grabs your attention like a murder at the beginning of a book. That is exactly how Imperfect Justice by Cara Putman begins and the reader is drawn into a story of mystery and intrigue.
Imperfect Justice tells the story of attorney Emilie Wesley and her client, Kaylene Adams.
In the opening chapter Kaylene is accused of murdering her daughter and then is killed by police. Her attorney, Emilie isn’t so sure Kaylene is guilty. And of course, she sets out on a course to free her client’s name, find and bring the real guilty party to justice. But can she do it? The odds are stacked against her.
What I liked about the book: I love a good attorney/cop/p.i./whodunit mystery. So I was excited to read this book. I was definitely drawn in by the opening chapter. The characters were well thought out and developed. The plot was clear.
What I didn’t like about the book: After being grabbed in the opening chapter the rest of the book seemed to fall flat. The dialogue was predictable, the characters, while being well developed, were foreseeable. It read like a book I’d read several times before but with different characters. Regrettably I quickly lost interest in the story, even with a good plot line.
I give this book 3 out of 5 turning pages.
I received a free copy of Imperfect Justice by Cara Putman from Litfuse for the purpose of review. All opinions are my own.
