One juror changed the verdict. What if she was wrong?
‘Ten years ago we made a decision together…’
Fifteen-year-old Jessica Silver, heiress to a billion-dollar fortune, vanishes on her way home from school. Her teacher, Bobby Nock, is the prime suspect. It’s an open and shut case for the prosecution, and a quick conviction seems all but guaranteed.
Until Maya Seale, a young woman on the jury, persuades the rest of the jurors to vote not guilty: a controversial decision that will change all of their lives forever.
Ten years later, one of the jurors is found dead, and Maya is the prime suspect.
The real killer could be any of the other ten jurors. Is Maya being forced to pay the price for her decision all those years ago?
I was really intrigued by the blurb for this book – and I do love that cover!
My mum and dad have both been on Jury Service, and they had differing experiences but it is still something I would love to do and I found this book fascinating as it talks about the ins and outs of what happens behind the scenes.
I thought that the characters were well developed and the flow for the story was great, it was set at just the right pace for me, it was intriguing, had twists and turns, and plenty to keep me guessing too – I love the conclusion to the book too.
It is 4 stars from me for this one – highly recommended!!
