I want to thank Emma at Damppebbles blog tour for inviting me on this tour and David B. Lyons for providing me with a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
The Curious Case Of Faith and Grace is a taut and in many ways a thought provoking legal thriller.
I think most people have a fascination with identical twins, either you think they’re intriguing or a little disconcerting and that’s certainly the case with Faith and Grace. But the question is are they innocent or not?
The story is told from several POV’s including Alice who is a member of the jury on Faith and Grace’s trial and Detective Quayle who is lead investigator into the deaths of Faith and Grace’s parents. The characters are really realistic, at times not all that likeable but I have a soft spot for Quayle who is a country policeman who is way out of his league during the investigation.
The main issue I had was that the two girls were on trial, even if the crime was murder, as I thought couldn’t be tried for any sort of crime if it was committed under the age of ten but I’m not an expert in these matters.
The curious case of Faith and Grace is an intense legal thriller that is a must if you love a character driven novel.
