High-flying lawyer Jessica Wells has it all. A successful career, loving husband Tom and a family she adores. But one case – and one client – will put all that at risk.
Edward Blake. An ordinary life turned upside down – or a man who quietly watched television while his wife was murdered upstairs? With more questions than answers and a case too knotted to unravel, Jessica suspects he’s protecting someone…
Then she comes home one day and her husband utters the words no one ever wants to hear. Sit down… because I’ve got something to tell you…
Now Jessica must fight not only for the man she defends, but for the man she thought she trusted with her life – her husband.
Susan Lewis has written a masterpiece with her latest novel, I Have Something To Tell You. This murder mystery is undoubtedly in the top tier of books I’ve read the past couple of years, and I read A LOT.
Lewis sets the hook in the first chapter and then reels us in while she drops clues like morsels on the page. I could hardly put the book down except to sleep. The brutal murder of a beautiful wife is shocking, and Edward Blake, the deceased’s husband, has no alibi. When he’s held without bail until trial, his lawyer, Jessica Wells, attempts to prove his innocence. A journey begins that takes them on a winding road of fascinating parallels that touch both their professional and personal lives. The story is riveting–with numerous well-defined characters, credible red herrings, and beautifully described settings on the English countryside. Don’t miss this one!
