Pick of the Day

Tease Me by Sarah Sanders

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Usually we’re a little leery about picking up an erotic novella because the novella may not have enough length for a roman...

Leading the Witness by Carsen Taite

⭐⭐⭐

Catherine Landauer, a defence attorney is particularly adept in finding flaws in the investigation leading to prosecuting her clients. She finds a loose thread in the investigation and pulls at it unravelling the case against her clients and earning either a reprieve or a negotiation for them. Her obsession with complete and thorough investigation is entirely personal because of her own nightmare experience in the past. A past that she keeps well-hidden since by not socialising at all and thereby not allowing anyone close. Prosecutor Starr Rio is known to take shortcuts to being perps to the court. Her methods are borderline but her passion is justice for the victim. Catherine is not particularly impressed with Starr and makes no bones about it. The two are at opposite sides of the ring till the twelve-year-old daughter of the Mayor is kidnapped. Catherine’s worst nightmare has come true and she has to reach out to Starr who is in charge of the case.

This is mostly a taut thriller with Catherine’s past being unfolded as the case for the missing girl proceeds. Catherine's persona is slowly unfolded giving her characterisation a satisfactory depth. Two-thirds of the book is extremely engrossing and then it goes a little sideways with a very abrupt leap into bed. This is quickly followed by the kidnapper-Catherine drama – without enough groundwork to explain why Catherine was always looking over her shoulder and why the kidnapper would be obsessed by Catherine. Conclusions have to be drawn for that.

This book could’ve done with some more detailing for both, the growing attraction between the MCs and for plausibility of the climax. But still, an okay read.
