The serial killer isn’t on trial. He’s on the jury.
Hollywood actor Robert Soloman stands accused of the brutal stabbings of his wife and her lover, but he is desperately pleading that he had nothing to do with it. This is the trial of the century, and the defence want Eddie Flynn on their team.
The biggest case Eddie has ever tried before, he decides to take it on despite the overwhelming evidence that Robert is guilty. As the trial starts, Eddie becomes sure of Robert’s innocence, but there’s something else he is even more sure of – that there is something sinister going on in the jury box.
Because of this, he is forced to ask: what if the killer isn’t on the stand? What if he’s on the jury?

I received a copy of this book NetGalley in exchange for an honest Review.
When I saw this title it didn’t take me even a minute to know that I am going to read it. I really like court drama but haven’t read many books on it. There is so much to take in so without proper mood, It is not right to pick this genre.
“The greatest trick the devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn’t exist.”
It is the 4th book of Eddie Flynn series, A con artist who is a lawyer now, I am sure previous books covered his past story. This book gives a few details here and there so It can be read as stand alone.
Eddie Flynn doesn’t want limelight but got it while took a case of Solomon, a Hollywood star who is suspect of murdering his wife and security head and all the evidence are against him.
“Whatever good things you’ve heard about me probably aren’t true. Whatever bad things you’ve heard are probably just the tip of the iceberg,” I said.”
Joshua Kane, a unique and intelligent Serial Killer who is too smart to be caught before, murdering in a pattern which no one able to notice it. Now he is part of the jury.
It was told in two POV, one was from Flynn and the other was 3rd person POV who told Kane’s side. I loved each and everything about this book, from writing to story, from characters to so many minor but important details, from so many twists and turns and all the mystery throughout the book. The ending constantly kept me on edge.
Only thing I didn’t like was the pace at a few points I skimmed pages not so many but yes I did.
I overall I enjoyed it a lot and looking forward to reading other books of this series.
