What happens when tunnel vision clouds a police investigation? Is it true that once you are labeled a person of interest you really are the prime suspect? Can you trust the legal system? Probably not.
After a bitterly contested legal battle over inherited property, the hard-won art collection and its owner Samantha Bennington disappear. Both have vanished without a trace.
When blood spatter is discovered under the freshly painted wall of the room in which two of the paintings were hung, the theft becomes the opening act in a twisted tale of jealousy, revenge, and murder leading to a final judgment for all involved.
As the list of suspects narrows, the focus lands squarely on the husband. Some labeled Samantha’s husband a corrupt attorney, others an opportunist. Either way, he’s in the crosshairs of law enforcement and they are calling him a murderer. But is he the only viable suspect? What about the missing woman’s drug-addicted sister and her convicted felon brother? Both were furious over their loss at court and have more than enough reason to hate Samantha.
Guilty until proven innocent leaves Alexander Clarke facing a twisted judgment.
I really enjoyed this story and after seeing the cover and the blurb I knew I would be in for a treat – it is a great thriller with plenty of mystery thrown in!
The book is well written and it flows very well, it started off a little bit slow but it soon picked up and after a few chapters I found the plot to be quite addictive and finished the book in the afternoon after I had started it in the morning. It was one of those books that I was thinking about after I’d finished it – and the number of books I read that made it stand out for me.
The characters were likeable and relatable for me and I enjoyed that. 4 stars from me for this one – I really enjoyed it! Highly recommended!!
