‘Scott, it’s Rebecca. I need you.’

After years of silence, Texan lawyer Scott Fenney receives a devastating phonecall from his ex-wife. She has been accused of murdering her boyfriend, Trey – the man she left Scott for – and is being held in a police cell. Now she is begging Scott to defend her.

Scott is used to high-stakes cases, but this one is bigger than anything he has handled before. If Rebecca is found guilty, she will be sentenced to life imprisonment. Her future is in his hands. As he prepares to take the stand in the most dramatic courtroom appearance of his life, Scott is forced to question everything he believes to get to the truth – to save the life of the ex-wife he still loves….

Reviews

The Times
A gripping read with unexpected twists that ranks with anything Grisham has done in years.
Foschini Club Magazine
If you enjoy suspense and a fast-paced courtroom drama, this one's for you.
Civilian Reader
Offers the reader everything they could want from a thriller, and is a very satisfying read.
Oamuru Mail
A great read. . . . Gimenez is a thriller writer of quality.
The Australian
Gimenez writes smart vernacular dialogue, hip and street-wise, with a nice line in social commentary, and his plotting leaves the over-rated John Grisham in his rear-vision mirror.
Gisborne Herald
Gimenez's latest novel Accused is classic Grisham at his best.
Daily Mail
For my money, Grisham has grown stale over the past five years while Gimenez has gone from strength to strength...this is one of the best legal thrillers since Scott Turow's Presumed Innocent
The Times
This mix of family values, sex, sleaze and intrigue holds together in a gripping read with unexpected twists that ranks with anything Grisham has done in years
City AM
Brilliant writing, masterful plot and all the thrill of the courtroom in one. Grisham, step aside.
Daily Mail
Some critics are calling the Texas-based lawyer Mark Gimenez 'the next Grisham'-but I think that's far less than fair. This, his fifth novel and the second featuring attorney A. Scott Fenney, shows he's now better than the one-time master of the American courtroom drama . . . This is one of the best legal thrillers since Scott Turow's Presumed Innocent in 1987 . . . Superb.
Times of India
Unputdownable for those who love the genre.
