Did you miss the clever, “can’t put it down”, and sometimes disturbing mystery-suspense novel Defending Jacob by William Landay? It spent months on the New York Times Bestseller list this year, and it’s easy to see why. What do you do if you are the assistant district attorney investigating the murder of a 14-year-old boy in your son’s class … and your son is accused of the murder? You defend your son. But what if you start to suspect that your son is guilty? This is one heck of a read.
