Presumption of Guilt by Marti Green

Presumption of GuiltPresumption of Guilt by Marti Green
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I was lucky enough to be granted this read from St. Martin's Press via Net Galley.

There has been varied reviews on this book by Marti Green, and that is good, because we all have different varying degrees of what we like, what love, what we enjoy. In my humble opinion it gives a good rounded idea to anyone thinking of purchases it.

I for one loved this read.

We have Molly who was convicted of murdering her parents. She has been in prison now for years missing her daughter Sophie growing up.

A lot of prisoners say they are not guilty, but when Molly was being interviewed in her teenage years, many hours being questioned, she later retracts her guilt. Too late. Its the only unadmissable proof they have that she killed her parents.

Was Molly too late to please her innocence?

There are plenty of underlying twists in how Molly got to be imprisoned.

Some reviewers say that the pace is too slow. I personally do not think so because it gives the reader facts to take on board, and like most police cases, the evidence can reveal slowly, sometimes many years.

Attorney Dani Trumball is a specialist in helping wrongly imprisoned men and women to appeal. But they cannot take on all the 'wrongly' imprisoned folk, they sift through the contacts daily. Not all are innocent. Not all can be helped.

Dani see's something in this case that intrigues her, urges her on. Even her Boss tries to steer her away from the case, but to no avail.

Is there more to Molly's imprisonment than meets the eye?

My verdict:

I thoroughly enjoyed this read, and will certainly be looking closely at this authors work.

Twelve years ago, teenager Molly Singer was tried and convicted for murdering her parents. She was sentenced to two consecutive life terms in prison, torn away from her newborn daughter, and forsaken by those closest to her. But now, a series of anonymous letters proclaim her innocence?and point a finger at a deadly conspiracy.

Attorney Dani Trumball specializes in defending the wrongfully imprisoned at the Help Innocent Prisoners Project. But taking Molly's case means taking on a hard-hearted justice system that doesn't like do-overs?and a merciless killer who will do anything to keep a secret history of dirty deals buried. Only the truth will set Molly free and reunite her broken family. And only Dani has any chance of finding it in a showdown that will push her legal talents?and her survival skills?to the very edge.
