Defense lawyer Alison Barton’s life has changed in many ways after winning a high profile case. She’s in a new relationship, has started her own firm, and is co-parenting her daughter with an ex with whom she doesn’t see eye to eye.
When Alison gets a call from one of her law school classmates who has been accused of murder, she has to put aside everything she believed in college about Jane Knudsen and build the best defense she can. Something that’s proving hard to do with all the secrets she knows Jane is keeping from her.
Told from the perspectives of both Jane and Alison, the author deftly moves the story along while meticulously peeling away the layers of protection each woman has put up. With an intriguing premise and fast-pace, THE DARKEST WEB is a compelling and dark mystery that you won’t want to put down.
You don’t need to read Wright’s debut THE DARKEST FLOWER before this one, but doing so would certainly give you some deeper insight into Alison.
THE DARKEST WEB comes out on April 12. Many thanks to Thomas & Mercer for the advance reading copy.
